The proud parents of a transgender man announced the arrival of their new son in a witty alternative to a newspaper birth announcement.

The parents of Kai Bogert, who was born in 1995 as Elizabeth Anne, published a “retraction” in the Australian paper the Courier-Mail to say they were mistaken about their “sprogget”. 

“In 1995 we announced the arrival of our sprogget, Elizabeth Anne, as a daughter. He informs us that we were mistaken. Oops! Our bad.”

“We would now like to present our wonderful son – Kai Bogert.”

And to bring a tear to a stone, the parents signed off with a personal message to their son.

“Loving you is the easiest thing in the world. Tidy your room.”
