Chastity Bono has legally become a man.

Cher‘s child has been granted a name and gender change by an LA judge.

The 41-year-old will now be known as Chaz Salvatore Bono.

Chaz couldn’t be happier,’ says lawyer Kristina Wertz in a statement.

‘[It is] an important step in his transition. [It allows him] to change a variety of his identity documents to show who he truly is.’

Chaz – whose dad was the late Sonny Bono – underwent sex change surgery last June.
