ABC News producer Don Ennis has transitioned to Dawn Ennis.

According to the New York Post, Ennis, a 49-year-old parent of three, announced she is transgender in a Facebook post.

“Today I begin anew,” she wrote. “Please understand: This is not a game of dress-up, or make-believe. It is my affirmation of whom I now am and what I must do to be happy, in response to a soul-crushing secret that my wife and I have been dealing with for more than seven years, mostly in secret.”

In an effort to prolong a commercial acting career, Ennis said his mother fed her female hormones as a child.

“I have a rare medical condition – nothing deadly or infectious – but it has resulted in an unusual hormonal imbalance.”

“One so profound that I don't resemble the man you first met 10 years ago.”

Ennis said her medical condition has “wrecked” her17 year marriage to Wendy and the two have parted.

She said co-workers at ABC News, where she has worked for 10 years, have been supportive.

“I'm overwhelmed by the strong support I've received from my coworkers, and I'm looking forward to telling my story when I'm ready,” Ennis said.
