World's youngest transgender model tipped to make millions on the catwalk

World's youngest transgender model tipped to make millions on the catwalk

Hollywood agents say she could soon be making the big bucks

A 10-year-old is set to make millions after walking the runway in the Big Apple, according to agents.

Noella McMaher, 10, recently became the world's youngest transgender model to walk in a fashion show after hitting the New York runway, and now Hollywood agents think she could be walking her way to a million dollar bank account.

One Hollywood agent said: "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."

Noella is already swamped with modelling offers and has impressively secured spot at the sought-after Paris fashion week this year.

"She is so confident for someone so young. She’s capable of making a million to two million dollars in the next year," the agent added.

Noella's modelling career has taken off in a big way over the last three years, with the young model saying her goal is to 'be a visible transgender youth activist and runway model'.

Noella made her modelling debut at the age of seven when she walked the runway during Chicago Fashion Week. She revealed that she watched Youtube videos to prepare for open auditions and was lucky enough to book two designers at her very first audition.

Since her debut, Noella has strutted it down the catwalk alongside prominent models such as Fallon Fox, Seleste A Loparo, Livia Wolfe, and Lex Pe’er Horwtiz.

The 10-year-old first identified as transgender just before she turned three and has been cited as an inspiration by her biological mother Dee, who now identifies as a 'trans masculine man'.

In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Dee said: "My spouse and I are both non-binary. In terms of gender identity, Noella came out before either of us. She was born with a fierce and confident sense of identity."

According to Dee, Noella ‘socially transitioned’ at four and the family subsequently changed her legal birth certificate from ‘boy’ to ‘girl’ when she was six. 

Dee explained: "It first started at two-and-a-half nearing three. Someone would say to her that she was a cute boy and she would snap back and exclaim, “I’m not a boy, I’m a girl!'"

Dee is separated from Noella's biological father Timothy McCord, a Chicago based scientist.

McCord, who did not approve of Noella's transition, allegedly fractured his daughter's arm after trying to force her into boys' pyjamas.

McCord pleaded guilty to a child endangerment charge, according to legal documents.

Last week, he admitted he had not seen Noella or his son Levi, saying: "I tried to get back into their lives but it was too contentious and stressful for everyone."

Meanwhile, Dee is married to 32-year old Ray, who has identified as transgender since 2019.

The couple currently have a baby together who they are raising as non-binary.
