Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed that her twenty-five-year-old child is transgender.
In an interview with AARP Magazine, while Curtis spoke about everything from life now that she is twenty-two years sober to social media, the sixty-two-year-old actress also opened up about her child, Ruby who she revealed has transitioned from "our son" to "our daughter."
Discussing how she had recently shed the old idea that gender is fixed, Curtis revealed to AARP that she and her husband, Christopher Guest "have watched in wonder and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby. And she and her fiancé will get married next year at a wedding that I will officiate."
Ruby works as a computer gaming editor while Curtis and Guest's daughter, Annie who is thirty-four years old, is married and works as a dance instructor.
Curtis added that at present, she has no grandchildren but she does hope to one day.
The Freaky Friday star also spoke with AARP about her twenty-two-year sobriety.
Curtis entered into recovery from drugs and alcohol in February 1999 and has been free from them ever since. Curtis' recovery and ability to shed her addiction ultimately saved her life as she says, she would be "dead for sure" had she not been able to.
She explained that becoming sober, brought her a community that she so desperately wanted. And, not only that but it's also brought her a new identity that she describes as "just a sober person — flawed, contradictory, broken and redeemed."
And addiction isn't the only thing that Curtis has been able to shed as she revealed that she has continued the practice of letting go and now "sheds every day."
"I am somebody who sheds every day," she says. "Let's get rid of that, I don't need that. It's all about old ideas that don't work anymore."
In more recent times, she has let go of friends. Curtis has removed what she calls "vampire" friendships and started to set boundaries with the friends she has decided to keep or reconnect with.
She has also become increasingly comfortable with giving and donating her money to others.
It's truly inspiring how supportive Curtis is of her daughter and we hope many other parents who have children coming out within the LGBTQ+ community will take a leaf out of the actresses book!
