The actress said she has “two beautiful daughters” and said she hopes to see them both thrive. And even though the eldest one was assigned as a boy at birth and given a name Jackson, when she was 3 she came to her mom and asked not to call her a boy anymore because she is not one, the proud mother shared with Daily Mail. “They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide,” the actress went on, saying that her own mom gave her a lesson of loving and accepting children regardless of the way they want to manage their lives. “I was taught by my mom that you have to speak up; you have to be able to know that, when this life is over, you’ll have lived the truth you’re comfortable with, and that nothing negative can come from that,” she remembers. She said that bringing up two girls – one trans and one cis – taught her that there is no difference whether your child’s gender identity matches with the one assigned at birth or not, as long as your child is safe, happy and loved.
