We’re rooting for you, girl! After revealing in the I Am Jazz Season 5 trailer that she has a new boo, Jazz Jennings is ready to introduce her man. Other than the fact that his name is Amir, we don’t know much, but a new report from Radar Online shows that the guy is the real deal. A friend of the reality star spilled the details to the outlet, and he sounds like the perfect first boyfriend for the 18-year-old, who has recently undergone gender confirmation surgery.
“Jazz met him online and they’re still together,” a pal told Radar. “He’s very kind and he cares a lot about Jazz,” they continued, sharing that her friends all approve of the match. And though we’ll likely watch their romance play out on the show, the friend can confirm that they’re full-on boyfriend and girlfriend. “They’re official!”
In the Season 5 trailer, Jazz talked a little about her new romance in her own words. “I feel like I’ve been ready to fall in love for so long,” she admitted. “It’s like the ultimate connection.” And love definitely came her way. “There’s a boy in the picture now,” she continued. “Amir just gets me and I get him… I’ve kissed him a lot.”
It’s all good news for the teen, who’s talked about the difficulties of dating in the past. “I’d love to meet a cute trans-boy who will be my true love, or possibly my soul mate,” she wrote for Harper’s Bazaar back in 2016. “However, the dating pool is less than limited, because I’m the only ‘out’ transgender girl in my school. I feel that there are others lurking, some may be stealth, while others just aren’t ready to come out. So, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that it will be a while before I experience love. I’m okay. I’m a patient person. I can wait for my prince charming.”
Now, it seems she’s found him — and just in time to try out some of that “sexual stuff” she recently discussed with her doctor. “I know that once I fall in love and I really admire another individual that I’m going to want to have sex with them,” she said on I Am Jazz in 2017. As for whether it’s love with Amir, only time will tell. And when it comes to that other personal stuff, well, that might just be a part of her story she’ll want to keep to herself.
