Jazz Jennings turns 23 years old in 2023. Her birthday is Oct. 6, 2000. She’s likely between 21 and 22 years old in I Am Jazz Season 8.

TLC began airing her show in 2015, meaning she was just 15 years old. She started her transition at age 5 and spoke about her steps toward gender confirmation surgery to ABC News.

“When I was 2 years old, I went up to my mom and asked her, ‘When is the good fairy going to come with her magic wand and change my penis into a vagina?’” Jazz told ABC News’ Nightline when she was 18.
