RHOC star Heather Dubrow reveals her youngest child is transgender: ‘we are proud to be your parents’
The Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow’s youngest child came out as transgender.
On Saturday, March 4, the reality TV personality uploaded a photo to celebrate International Son’s Day. The snapshot pictured a beach on a sunny day with the name “Ace” written in the sand.
“We love you, our youngest son, Ace ❤️,” the actress gushed. “Our job as parents is to give our kids a safe and supportive environment so they can grow up as healthy, happy, confident, independent humans.”
The mother-of-four continued, “Since Ace is a 12-year-old child, with a long life ahead of him — we will let him tell his own story someday if he chooses to do so.”
Heather finished the loving post with a statement of complete support for her child.
“All we can say is Ace, we love you so much and we are proud to be your parents,” she confessed. “Your brother and sisters love and support you too ❤️.”
