Trans Wedding! Man Who Used To Be A Woman Marries Woman Who Was Born A Man

British transgender army officer Hannah Winterbourne has married actor Jake Graf – who used to be a woman. Captain Hannah, 31, who spent her first few years in the Army as a man, wed Jake, 40, in London.The delighted bride said on Monday night: “I never thought when I was younger this could happen to me. It was always a pipe dream.” The couple tied the knot with a romantic white wedding — saying: “We’re just like any other bride and groom.” Captain Hannah wed Jake in a ceremony that she described as “like a Disney movie”. Hannah who will now be ­living with Jake in Army married quarters near her barracks, added: “To me, I’m just another girl married to another guy. As you transition and meet someone new you kind of forget about your past.” Actor Jake, 40, said: “We’re just the same as everyone else, with our flaws and ups and downs — but a little bit different.”Hannah and Jake revealed they first got together because of a story in January 2015 telling of her courageous decision to become a woman while still on Army active service. Jake said: “I saw Hannah and thought she was beautiful. She was on the front cover so it was hard to miss her!” He told a mutual friend named Rebecca that he thought Hannah looked cute. Jake said: “A week later I saw Rebecca again and she said, ‘I spoke to Captain Winterbourne and she thinks you’re quite cute too!’ So it really was school playground stuff.” The pair made contact on Facebook and swapped messages and finally phone numbers. Jake, who was in the Eddie Redmayne movie The Danish Girl, said: “In our first phone conversation I asked, ‘Do you think you’d like to have kids because I really want them?’ “It seemed like the right thing to do before we even met. I like to get things out in the open quite early. She said, ‘I’m certainly not adverse to kids.’ Had she said, ‘No, I hate kids’, that would have been that.”Hannah said: “I thought, ‘Wow this has got serious very quickly’. But I quite admired it because Jake wanted something serious. He didn’t want a fling. He wasn’t asking me to have kids with him there and then as long as I was happy to have them in future.” She admitted she was “absolutely terrified” ahead of their first meeting on London’s South Bank – because she had never had a boyfriend, let alone been on a date. The couple, patrons of transgender children’s charity Mermaids, got engaged while on holiday in New York in September. Jake got down on one knee in a rowing boat in a Central Park lake. Jake said most people simply do not realise they are a transgender couple. He added: “We’re lucky enough that we both look like any other person walking down the street.Photo Credit: Getty
