Real Housewives Star Announces Transgender Child

According to the DSM-V, the prevalence of individuals experiencing gender dysphoria falls anywhere between 0.002%-0.014% of the total population, depending on their biological sex; the disorder is more common in males.

At any rate, gender dysphoria is very, very rare — according to the DSM-V.

Perhaps this is why Real House Wives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow’s recent announcement came as a bit of a surprise to many.

Dubrow has 4 children, 3 females, and one male—of those 3 females, one identifies as a lesbian, the other bisexual, and the latest one to come out has reportedly identified as transgender. …

What are the odds that all 3 kids from one family would all identify in these ways?

Needless to say, many wondered about the likelihood of such a thing happening:

People Magazine confirmed:

Over the years, Heather has supported her children through thick and thin. When her eldest daughter Max came out as bisexual in June 2020, Heather shared how proud she was of her. “Whatever I can do to support them, and in this case Max, I’m in,” the RHOC star told PEOPLE. “So there’s nothing she could tell me that would upset me.”

When her daughter Kat came out as a lesbian one year later, Heather was just as supportive. “We’ve got four kids, they are different genders, different sexualities, and all at interesting places in their lives, figuring out who they are and where they belong as humans,” she said.

“Even if she doesn’t understand something, my mom tries very hard and she learns and teaches herself and she grows with us,” Max added of her mom’s commitment to the Dubrow kids.

In March 2023, Heather shared that her youngest child had come out as transgender and goes by the name Ace. To mark International Sons Day, she posted a picture of a beach with “Ace” written in the sand with the caption, “We love you, our youngest son, Ace ❤️.”

The Gateway Pundit provided this quote from Heather Dubrow:

“Our job as parents is to give our kids a safe and supportive environment so they can grow up as healthy, happy, confident, independent humans.

Since Ace is a 12 year old child, with a long life ahead of him – we will let him tell his own story someday if he chooses to do so,” she continued.

“All we can say is Ace, we love you so much and we are proud to be your parents. Your brother and sisters love and support you too ❤️.”
