We certainly pray that this is true!
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening's son, Stephen, was born a girl named Kathlyn, and although the actor was reportedly having a difficult time accepting that his child is transgender, The National Enquirer is reporting that he has finally come around, and celebrated him with the entire family in Hollywood before Christmas!
An insider explains:
“While Annette has always accepted Stephen’s transition, Warren struggled with it. Warren never stopped loving their child, but he had plenty of issues and fears to overcome. The bottom line is he missed his little girl. But he’s finally resigned himself to the fact that one day Stephen will probably have gender-reassignment surgery and legally become a boy. Warren still slips up and calls Stephen ‘her’ or by his birth name Kathlyn. But the bottom line is he’s totally onboard with his child’s new lifestyle. The dinner was an unofficial public display that he’s proud of his family, especially Stephen, for having the courage to be who he truly is.”
That truly is so touching.
We know that it must be quite an adjustment, and be a very confusing time for parents, but ultimately, we're glad to hear that Warren realized that his child was still just that, and that it's his job to put his own ideas aside and be there for love, support, and understanding!
Congratulations, you guys!
