Izaak Theo Adu, the trans son of soul legend Sade, has announced a date for his wedding to fiancée Emily Shakeshaft with a series of romantic photos.

Emily, a hair stylist, shared beautiful photos of the two of them on a secluded beach in Mexico, embracing and kissing in the sunshine.

In the caption, she revealed some exciting news: “We get married in six weeks!!!!!”

She later shared another photo, showing the couple visiting an underwater cave, and added: “The earth is so beautiful and has such magical places for us to explore… I’m so glad I get to explore this planet’s majesty with you.”

The couple have been engaged since May last year, and sharing the news on social media, Izaak wrote at the time: “For the rest of my life… I get to laugh with you, cry with you, grow with you, kiss you, hug you, love on you.

“I get to hold you every night knowing I’ll wake up every morning and see your beautiful face.

“Thank you for showing me your heart and soul and allowing me to protect them in this life. The purest light, my moon.”

Izaak Adu publicly came out as trans in 2016.

Izaak Adu came out as trans in 2016 and has since been open on social media about his transition, in contrast to Sade who has always been strictly private about her personal life.

While recovering from bottom surgery last year, he shared: “This process is trying, tiring, painful, emotionally exhausting, physically exhausting, uncomfortable.

“I often ask myself: ‘Why the f**k do I have to endure this to be who I am?’ But at the end of the day this is the path that was laid out for me and I’ll walk it to the end.”
