Kellie Maloney has taken to Instagram to share behind the scenes pictures from her transition - and admitted that her life 'almost feels complete'.
The former boxing promoter, 64, rose to fame as boxing promoter 'Frank' before her transition, and went online to talk about her family's support in an emotional video.
Kellie, who is parent to three daughters, credited them for standing by her, and shared previous pictures of her cosmetic procedures as she reflected on her journey.
In 2014, Kellie revealed she was living as a woman and had spent £100,000 on transforming her physical appearance, including a final gender reassignment surgery to become a 'fully fledged female' in 2015.

Today, in a series of Instagram posts, she shared intimate pictures of her journey, including several of her scarred face just after surgery.
Speaking from her daughter Emma's guest room bed, she said her rock throughout her journey was her daughters.
She said: 'Am I bored? Maybe that's why I'm putting up my life story in pictures, I don't know.
'My daughters throughout my whole journey have been my rock, my conscience and correct me when I'm right and wrong.'

'I don't know what I'd be doing but I certainly wouldn't be this happy and at peace with myself. That I do know,' said Kellie, pictured here as Frank with one of his daughters
Kellie also explained that she has been 'very lucky' to have had her granddaughter Robin and her son-in-law Richard.
She has one daughter, Emma, with first wife Jackie and daughters Sophie and Libby with second wife Tracey.

'I hope it helps educate people,' she said, before adding: 'I'm hoping it helps people understand that, really, we don't choose this journey because let me tell you - I could have chosen to still be getting pictures of Frank Maloney.
'I don't know what I'd be doing but I certainly wouldn't be this happy and at peace with myself. That I do know.'
She added that she hopes that people don't think the pictures are 'over the top' and she decided to share them because she had been 'sitting looking at them, just thinking how lucky I am.'

She again thanked her family for their support, along with 'some very good friends out there' old and new.
She also revealed that her life is 'nearly complete' but that there are 'maybe a few more steps on the way'.
Kellie also reminded her followers to tune in to Celebrity Master Chef next month as she will be taking part, and people will 'see me like they've never seen me before.'
The 64-year-old appeared on Loose Women in May this year, and said the thought of being intimate with someone as a trans-woman is a 'barrier' for her, and claimed that she's quite enjoying her 'virginity'.
The former boxing promoter appeared on the show alongside journalist India Willoughby, 51, to discuss realities of dating as transgender women.
