Having fully transformed in a male, Chaz Bono now wants to turn his attention on something equally important: walking down the aisle with partner Jennifer Elia.
The offspring of Cher and the late Sonny Bono said this week on Piers Morgan Tonight that he and Elia want to get married “within a year.”
“We’ve been engaged actually for two years,” Chaz said, explaining they “kind of had to put things on hold a little bit” due to his gender reassignment procedure.
The couple has been together for nearly six years and can legally wed because Chaz is now considered a man. They hope Mary Bono Mack, Sonny’s widow, can preside over their nuptials.
Elia refers to herself as bisexual and says she finds Bono “more attractive as a man.” She also tells The New York Daily News that the sex change has been for the best.
“When you have a partner who’s happy in their skin and happy in general, not depressed and feeling completely in the wrong body, it changes everything,” she said.
