Transgender couple find love - and now plan to have children

In many ways, it's a classic tale of boy meets girl.

But the love story behind Jasmine Merino and Ryan Said is anything but ordinary. 

The transgender couple have found love after both being born the opposite sex. 

Ryan, 24, has been living as a man for four years, and Jasmine, 18 started transitioning two years ago.

And despite not undergoing full gender reassignment surgery they say their sex life is great after learning to adapt.

The couple met on Instagram and chatted on Skype for a month before meeting each other in person.

Ryan said: “She messaged me first and I wasn’t into her because I thought she was one of those 'Legally Blonde' type girls but then I decided to give her a try.

“I just kept talking to her and she was the sweetest girl I ever talked to.

“I think it was love at first sight because I couldn’t stop staring at her the whole time.”

They would like to have children - using Jasmine’s sperm and Ryan’s eggs.

Jasmine said: “We plan to have some more surgeries before we have kids.”
