Isis King Returns to 'Tyra' After Sex-Change Surgery, She's Engaged (to a man)
Isis King, the first transgender contestant on the "America’s Next Top Model" returns to "The Tyra Banks Show" on Monday (March 30) to talk about her sex-change operation, her new life as a woman and her boyfriend, Desmond.
It was last November when Tyra gifted Isis with the sex-change surgery.
And Miss Honey must have went immediately under the knife, because she's back to striking fierce poses in photos and well enough to sit on Tyra's couch.
She says the sex reassignment surgery took four hours and 15 minutes and relives the moment she saw herself in a woman after the surgery.
"It's almost like I was supposed to have it," says King, who was born Darrell Walls and used to live in a homeless shelter. "Although it was swelling and bruising and everything, automatically I felt more comfortable. I was ready to walk around the house in my little shorts. I just felt more confident."
King also introduces her man, Desmond, whom she met more than three years ago -- before her surgery -- on MySpace.
"When we were just friends, I had a dream I was getting married," he tells Banks. "As the bride came down the aisle, it was Isis... She’s strong, she’s beautiful, she’s my soul mate."
With that, Desmond gets down on one knee and proposes to King.
She says yes.
