Teddy Geiger is making a big change.

The 29-year-old musician revealed Friday that they’re transitioning from male to female.

“Okay… because u asked nicely… I am transitioning,” Geiger responded on Instagram to a fan who asked why they look different recently.

“I started talking about it with a couple of my close friends and family about a month ago and it’s given me the courage to start the process. I feel like the next step is to tell all y’all. So here goes. Love it or hate this is who i have been for a looooong time. I love u guys. Talk sooooon byeeee.”

Geiger, best known for the 2006 single “For You I Will (Confidence),” has focused more on songwriting recently, penning hits for One Direction and Shawn Mendes, including Top 10 hits “Stitches,” “Treat You Better” and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.”

The singer also had roles in “The Royal Pains” and the 2008 movie “The Rocker.”

“Woke up to so much love,” Geiger wrote in a followup post.

“I have the best friends.”
