As photographs have appeared of the child wearing skirts and dresses and with long, braided hair, Hollywood gossips have wondered what on earth Jackson’s mother thought she was doing.

The mum-of-two has now confirmed that not only is she raising Jackson as a girl — in fact, she says, Jackson is every bit as much a girl as her three-year-old sister, August.

Responding to the interviewer at her Beverly Hills home, she said she thought Jackson was a boy too, until he turned three years old and told her he wasn’t.

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!

She explained further:

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.’

  • How can a 3 year old know what sex he wants to be? This is a useless woman. She definitely wanted a girl and must have convinced the poor little child that he is a girl.
    My son actually discovered the difference between a girl and a boy at 3 years. I even caught him once trying to wear his sisters earrings but I gently explained to him that boys don’t wear earrings. This doesn’t mean he is a girl or I should assume he is a girl. It’s normal for a boy to want to act like his sisters.
    When I was young I used to play ball with my brothers. I was always thair goalkeeper. That didn’t make me a boy.
    Some women should not be given kids to care for. They are not mothers
