We think that they should put aside their own feelings and be supportive parents. What she's going through must be so difficult!
The National Enquirer is reporting that Warren Beatty and Annette Bening are devastated that their 18 year old daughter, Kathlyn, is attending college as a young man, calling herself Stephen, and planning to get gender-reassignment surgery!
An insider reveals:
"Warren is beside himself over the situation with his daughter Kathlyn. He and Annette have tired to deal with this over the years when their daughter was younger, but she's determined to go ahead with the transgender operation, just like Chastity [Bono]. She repeatedly told her parents that 'once I turn 18,' she would take matters into her own hands."
It's definitely a serious operation to consider, but it obviously sounds like she's been struggling with this for a long time!
Hopefully her parents will be there for her! We certainly hope so!
