Late American actor, John Ritter’s Daughter Stella is in the process of transitioning from a female to a male.
The news of Stella Ritter’s transition was revealed by a close friend of the Ritter family according to reports.
Radar Online reports that a close family friend revealed that Stella Ritter first officially began living as a male last September just after her 18th birthday and now wants to be known as Noah Lee Ritter, which already has taken effect on Facebook.
The source said: “She started living as a boy when she turned 18 last September and has renamed herself Noah Lee Ritter”.
Noah is now living “24/7 as a male and has grown facial hair because of the treatments” he is taking, the outlet has reported.
According to the source, “John would definitely have approved of whatever Stella [now Noah] wants to. He loved her so much.’
Stella Ritter is the only child of John Ritter and his widow Amy Yasbeck. Stella reportedly made the decision to become a man when she was still in high school.
The ‘Three’s Company’ star tragically died in September 2003 after suffering an aortic dissection. Sadly, John’s death took place on what was also his daughter’s fifth birthday. John collapsed on the set while filming “8 Simple Rules.” John began feeling very ill on the set and began sweating, vomiting, and complaining of chest pains.
He was rushed across the street to the Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center where he was sadly misdiagnosed and treated for a heart attack.
By the time doctors finally figured out Ritter’s real medical emergency, it was too late. The actor died on the operating table just days before his 54th birthday, coincidentally in the same hospital where he was born.
