Wife Believed That Husband Was Having Affair, Instead ‘He Wanted To Be A Woman’

Kelly Allen one day found a lipstick in the glove compartment of her husband’s car and obviously assumed the worst…

Thinking her husband was cheating on her, Kelly had no option but to ask him to his face, but Kelly’s suspicions couldn’t have been further from the truth when her husband Warran Allen revealed bravely that he identified as a woman.

Married for 10 years and sharing two children, Warren had hidden his identity since being a teen.

Suspicions arose when her husband had been hiding his phone.

When he finally revealed his feelings, Kelly listened to Warren explaining he wanted to be called Zoey and have gender reassignment surgery. This was also something she found him googling on his phone.

Clearly, Kelly was in shock, but relieved at the news of no affair… she agreed to be Zoey’s wife in a same sex marriage.

The couple are planning to take their vows again and will both walk up the aisle in wedding dresses.

Kelly, said:

“I know it sounds shocking that my husband is now becoming my wife but we’re happy.

It would have been far worse if he’d said he was having an affair. That would have destroyed our family. But this way we’re still happily together.

It was a total shock when Warren told me he now wanted to be a she. We’ve been together 11 years and have two beautiful children.”

She continued:

“He’d never mentioned anything like this. I began to ­worry when we started ­organising a party for our tenth wedding ­anniversary last December.

He was acting ­suspiciously and wouldn’t let his phone out of his sight. Then I found the lipstick in his van and knew it wasn’t mine.

I asked him whose it was and he said it was the girlfriend of a friend he’d given a lift to. I was convinced he had another woman but it turned out he wanted to be a woman. I cried and said, ‘I don’t know if I can do this.’

Then I realised I was being selfish and would make him miserable if he couldn’t be who he wanted to be. He was still the same person inside and I still love him.”

Zoey was terrified she’d lose Kelly and their children.

Zoey said:

“I was risking ­everything, but I couldn’t keep it hidden any longer as it was making me depressed. Kelly was shocked but supportive.

I’m lucky because our relationship is now stronger than ever.”

Kelly and Warren met in a pub in 2007.

It wasn’t until they started planning a fancy dress party for their 10th wedding anniversary last year that things changed.

Kelly added:

“We both love the 80s, so decided to have that as our theme. I was going to go as the receptionist out of Beetlejuice while Warren wanted to go as a skater girl. I thought it’d be fun, but he began obsessing about it.

He shaved off his beard, did a ­complete body wax and started using diet pills. He even used measuring tape and bought a corset to cinch in his waist.

Afterwards I noticed he kept wearing the corset, which I thought was odd. I kept asking what was wrong but he said he was fine. He wouldn’t let me see his phone. I was sure he had someone else.”

Zoey burst into tears when revealing the truth to Kelly.

Kelly said:

“The rest of the night was a blur as I was so shocked. Slowly, as we talked, I realised I had to let Warren be Zoey.

It wasn’t fair for me to stop that.

I realised I loved the person not the gender.”

Zoey is currently waiting to be referred to a gender identity clinic.

Zoey said:

“I can’t wait to look on the outside how I feel on the inside. I want to have surgery to become a woman.

I realised I was different when I hit puberty and would cry about my body. I didn’t want it to change.

It took a lot longer to realise I was a woman trapped in a man’s body.

I didn’t know anything about being trans and thought it was wrong so I didn’t want to address it.

Then I met Kelly and fell in love and tried to hide that side of myself and those thoughts. I had bouts of depression but tried to push all those feelings aside.

I couldn’t confide in anyone but once I’d dressed up for our ­party something changed in me. I thought this was the chance to tell Kelly the truth and to be the real me.

I’m so lucky she still loves me – and the kids have been ­totally accepting.”

The couple told their children that daddy is now ‘Mummy Zoey’ and would be dressing ‘just like mummy.’

Kelly said:

“They accepted it straight away. Molly smiled and said ‘if that’s what makes her happy.’”

Zoey is planning reassignment surgery, which could take three to four years.

Zoey said:

“We want to have a blessing and a big party for all our friends and family. I will wear a big gown and a small veil while Kelly still loves green. We’ll both be blushing brides.”

And Zoey insists their love life is better than ever:

“We’re so much closer and so we’re just as intimate but it’s more intense, as I don’t have to keep any secrets anymore.

Once I have the surgery we’ll have to find new ways to explore each other.”

Kelly added:

“I love Zoey so much. She’s been so brave and I want everyone to accept her, just as I have.

I’m glad that she’s told me the truth – becoming a woman is far better than her having an affair which is what I feared at the time.

We’re still a happy family – and that’s all that matters.”
