Mom Surprises Her Trans Daughter, 16 — Wins At Being The Most Epic Mom


Meet Gabrielle.


Gabrielle is a 16-year-old transgender girl from Ottawa, Canada. And her mom, Rose Gladu, is one of her biggest supporters.

"My mom has supported me since the start of my life, my transition, and she supports my future," Gabrielle wrote on her Instagram. "She encourages me to make great music, excel at my education, and pursue my dream of studying Fashion. So many of us are so lucky to have supportive parents, so let's really be thankful."

Just last Sunday, Rose seriously stepped up the brilliant mom game.

Gabrielle has been waiting for months to hear back about her legal name change, BuzzFeed reports. When the request was finally approved, Rose decided to surprise her daughter by baking her a very special cake for the family's Sunday brunch. Thankfully for us, Gabrielle's cousin Olivia captured it all on film.

The moment is truly precious.

"I was not expecting her to get so emotional that she became speechless," mom Rose told BuzzFeed. "My daughter is never speechless. I knew at that moment my child came back to me. She was on her way to who she had been from birth."

"Congratulations, you are now Gabrielle," the cake read.

Congrats, beautiful.
