Teddy Geiger, formerly known as John Theodore Geiger, has found love in 'Schitt’s Creek' star Emily Hampshire.
Teddy announced her gender transition last October and she showed up on the red carpet at the premiere of Emily's new movie 'The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan' on Monday.
The 29-year-old singer-songwriter and the 37-year-old confirmed their relationship via Instagram on August 30, when Hampshire posted a sweet photo of them together. “Just me & my girlfriend. 🎶❤️👯♀️🍓.”
That same day, Geiger snapped another post and captioned it, “I am so happy this woman is alive… with the sound of music. She is a song I will sing for a thousand years. She fills my heart with the sound of music. My heart wants to sing every song it hears.”
Ever since, the new couple has been active on social media, sharing many posts about each other. In one, Geiger gushed, "I love her so much and miss her so much and I need to kiss her and I want to go dancing because she is so cute when she dances and she is my dream and and and goodnight."
When Geiger was interviewed by The New York Times in July, she candidly talked about her gender transition and said that it has made her "feel more open."
"Because I’m willing to talk about everything now, people are then more open with me," she shared adding, "there’s no longer this piece of me back there saying: "Don’t go there."'
The hitmaker who has written for pop stars including Shawn Mendes, publicly broke the news of her transition on Instagram while at a studio session.
She confessed, "I used to find that I’d sing songs and think, ooh, it sounds like I’m talking about that stuff, and I don’t want to talk about that stuff. But it was just coming out."
This is Geiger’s first public relationship since transitioning. Geiger was first discovered on VH1’s 2004 reality competition 'In Search of the Partridge Family,' and went on to tour with Hilary Duff and release the 2006 album 'Underage Thinking', which included the Top 40 single 'For You I Will (Confidence).'
