Mickailia 'Ila' Adu took to Instagram last week (ends07Oct16) to document the first step of her transition to a male, as she prepared to undergo hormone replacement therapy.

Alongside a selfie, the 20-year-old wrote, "Today is the first day of the rest of my life #shotday #firstshot #finally #selfmademan #transman #proud..."

Mickailia is Sade's only child with Jamaican music producer Bob Morgan, who she dated in the late 1990s.

The singer, 57, has yet to comment on her child's transition.
