The world's youngest transgender model could make "a million or two in the next year", a Hollywood agent has said.
American youngster Noella McMaher, whose mum says was "born with a fierce and confident sense of identity", first identified as transgender at two-and-a-half.
She then socially transitioned aged four and had her birth certificate changed from male to female aged 10 and now the young lass from Chicago has shot to fame after becoming the youngest trans model to walk the runway at a New York Fashion Week show.

Noella has since been booked in to appear at Paris Fashion Week later this year and has been fielding a wave of modelling contracts, with one agent describing the young belle as the "ultimate…woke role model", reports Mail Online.
One Hollywood agent told the paper: "Noella is a phenomenon. She’s only ten but represents so much in terms of where the world is now. We are seeing more transgender models and she’s the ultimate in terms of being a woke role model.
"She is so confident for someone so young. She’s capable of making a million to two million dollars in the next year," they added.
Both of Noella's parents identify as non-binary. Noella's biological mum Dee McMaher, 35, identifies at a "trans masculine male" and their partner, Ray, a biological female has identified as transgender since 2019.

Speaking to the New York Post, Dee said: “Noella transitioned way before we did. She is the most self-assured person I know. I tell her all the time I want to be like her when I grow up.”
Noella's biological father, Timothy McCord, a scientist with whom Dee also shares a second child with, a cisgender boy called Levi, has apposed Noella's transition.
The Mail Online reports that McCord allegedly fractured Noella's arm when he tried to force her into boys pajamas, and hasn't seen her, or his son since.
