Chaz Bono is now legally a man
The child of Cher and the late Sonny Bono who started life as Chastity filed the request in March. In that court filing, available via TMZ, a doctor certified that Chaz had undergone gender-reassignment surgery in September 2009.
Bono told TMZ in June 2009 that his only regret regarding the transition was not doing it sooner.
