It’s official: Cher’s daughter has become her son.

On Thursday, a Santa Monica judge granted Chaz Bono permission to change his name and gender after making the transition from female to male with a sex change surgery in 2009.

“This is an important step in [Chaz's] transition and will allow him to change a variety of his identity documents to show who he truly is,” Kristina Wertz, Legal Director of the Transgender Law Center, tells The Insider.

Chaz was born Chastity Sun Bono, the only child of showbiz’s Sonny and Cher, in 1969. He now wants to be known as Chaz Salvatore.
