Hollywood actress Charlize Theron has finally broken her silence on raising her adopted 7-year-old son, Jackson as a girl.
The actress for years has been blasted for doing this after photos showed her son wearing female clothing and having his hair plaited.
Daily Mail reports that Charlize has revealed she is indeed raising her son as a girl.
‘Yes, I thought she was a boy, too,’ Charlize agrees, briskly. ‘Until she looked at me when she was three years old and said: ‘I am not a boy!’
‘So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive.
‘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.
‘My job as a parent is to celebrate them and to love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be.
‘And I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that.’
