Megan Fox is known for protecting her children's privacy, but the mother-of-three has spoken of her son's experimentation and gender identity with surprising candour.
Although in the past Fox has made reference to her nine-year-old son's interest in trying on dresses, the 35-year-old actor has opened up in much more depth to Glamour on the subject.
Fox, who became teary-eyed when discussing her son, began: 'Noah started wearing dresses when he was about two, and I bought a bunch of books that sort of addressed these things and addressed a full spectrum of what this is.'
She continued: 'Some of the books are written by transgender children. Some of the books are just about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want.
'And that doesn’t even have to have anything to do with your sexuality. So from the time they were very young, I’ve incorporated those things into their daily lives so that nobody feels like they are weird or strange or different.'
As for what other kids might think of Noah's choices, she went on to say: 'I can’t control the way other people react to my children. I can’t control the things that other children – that they go to school with – have been taught and then repeat to them.'
Fox explained that this is why she keeps her kids off of social media.
Continuing on the subject of schooling, the actor explained that she chose to send her kids to a school where the other parents share similar values to her and their kids aren't on social media the way that others are.
'So they know that their parents are famous, but their knowledge of it is very limited,' she explained.
'I knew when they were very young, I wanted to try to protect them however I could, especially limiting their exposure to the internet. So far, we’ve done a really good job and we maintain their innocence in a lot of ways, but I know I can’t protect them forever, though I do have a child that suffers.
'So I have a lot of worries about that, because I just wish that humanity was not like this. Although my kid is so brave and my child is so brave and I know that they've chosen this journey for a reason. It's just hard as a mum.'
Delving into her struggle with mum 'guilt' and feeling as though 'I haven't done enough', she admitted: 'I cry often, every new moon usually. I get in the bath and cry a lot about it because it is hard and not because of pressures that anybody else or society puts on you, but it is just hard being separated from them in that way.'
Fox shares her Noah and her other children, Bodhi, eight and Journey, five with ex-husband Brian Austin Green, who she was married to for almost ten years before filing for divorce in 2020.
Kelly proposed to her with a sentimental pear-cut two-stone ring that pays ode to both of their birth stones.
