Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves wants to have a baby after coming out as trans woman: 'I'm looking for a partner'
‘Human Ken Doll’ Rodrigo Alves, who recently come out as a transgender woman, now hopes to become a mother one day. After spending a whopping $650,000 to achieve her Ken Doll look, the 'Big Brother' star has now spent over $100,000 on getting the female body of her dreams, and said she has "always felt like a Barbie.”
The 36-year-old former cabin crew worker now uses the name Jessica to represent herself and wants people to use the pronouns "she" and "her" while referring to her.
Upon asking what she plans next after the final transformation procedure, Jessica said she wants to find love. “I’ve only had two short relationships in my life and I’m desperate to find a partner.”
Besides, she also wants to start a family and be a mother. “I feel I was born to it. Once I find love, I’d like to adopt and have a big family,” she added.
“I’d always felt feminine and when I struggled to be manly with my personality, I decided to make my appearance as masculine as possible instead. But no matter how much I looked like Ken nothing eased the pain of being Barbie inside,” Jessica said while confirming her transition to The Sun.
Recalling her childhood, the internet sensation, who was born as a male to a Brazilian mum and a British dad, revealed that she was never interested in toys. "Instead, I played with my sister’s beautiful Barbie dolls. I’d plait their long, blonde hair and I loved their pink outfits.” She added her father simply ignored her struggle and used to say everyone off, ‘He’s a boy, you’re ruining him, he needs to be a man’.
When she reached puberty, Jessica developed "man boobs" and hated them. “To me, they were a physical sign that I was more feminine than the others, so my parents agreed to pay for cosmetic surgery to have them removed. This was the start of it all,” she said.
After the first surgery, there was no stopping for Jessica. Though she tried to fit in and be happy by getting the look of the doll, Ken, she was still fighting against her true self. So at the beginning of 2019, Jessica, who had made quite a name for herself and been nicknamed 'the face of plastic surgery', decided to make the transition from male to female.
While she had already gone through butt implants surgery, she will be completing her transition with gender realignment surgery next year.
