THE girlfriend of US swim star Michael Phelps has revealed she was born a boy.
Taylor Lianne Chandler, 41, revealed in a post on her Facebook page that she was an intersex baby named David Roy Fitch.
“I was never a man, never lived as a man. No one can say they knew me as a man or produce a photo of me as a man,” Chandler wrote on Facebook.

Chandler was reportedly born with male genitalia with no testicles, but also had a uterus and no ovaries.
When she was teenager, she took testosterone blockers and changed her name. She later underwent surgery to become a woman.
Phelps who dated Chandler before he checked into rehab in September was reportedly unaware she was born intersex.
