In a candid 2020 interview on the “United We Rant” podcast, Nikki spoke about her sometimes difficult transition to being a woman and discussed her modeling career.

“You do get people here and there who can tell [I’m transgender],” she aid. “Like whatever it would be, off of my voice, off of my face. I have a real feminine body but like some people can clock you. Like your shoulders are too wide, your ribs are whatever.”

She said she was born Nicholas Secondino, but realized she was trans when she was just five years old — and threw a tantrum at Target when her mom forced her to try on a boy’s bathing suit and clothing, feeling totally uncomfortable with that wardrobe.

By the time she was 16, Nikki said she had started taking hormones — and said her dad was supportive throughout her transition.
