Proud mom Heather Dubrow recently made a post on Instagram where she announced that her youngest son has come out as transgender. This post was a tribute to her son on the occasion of International Children’s Day. The RHOC star shared a photo of a beach with her son’s name, “Ice,” etched into the sand. She captioned it – “It’s International Children’s Day! We love you, our youngest son, Ace with a heart emoji.

Heather Dubrow has stated that the job of parents is to give their children a safe and supportive environment so they can become happy, healthy, confident, and independent human beings. The 54-year-old added that Ice is only 12 years old and has a long life ahead of him. So, one day they want him to share his own story if he so desires. The Bravo star expressed her love for Ice and how proud she is to be his parents. She concluded the post by saying that his brothers and sisters love him too. Heather’s husband, Dr. Terry Dubrow, responded to the post, writing, “Thank you all for spreading the love.

Heather Dubrow’s reaction to her children’s gender identities

Heather and Terry are proud parents of their four children, including Katharina, Max, Nick and Ace. Heather’s two children came out as members of the LGBTQ community before Ace. In 2020, her daughter, Max, announced that she is bisexual. Later in 2022, Heather announces that her other daughter, Kat, is a lesbian. Kat decided to reveal it in her family’s group text as she wrote, “By the way, I’m a lesbian.” Heather also shared her mixed reactions about her children’s gender identity. Even though she knows her family is incredibly inclusive and accepting, she always wonders what it would be like for everyone else in the world.
