Jamie Lee Curtis recently introduced her transgender daughter Ruby to the world. In an interview, the actress revealed that her youngest child previously, known as Thomas Guest had transitioned into a female.
The Halloween actress’ exclusive interview with AARP was released on July 28. It saw the actress being candid about her childhood, her career as well as her daughter Ruby.
The 62-year-old actress revealed that the interview was conducted with Ruby’s permission. After learning the news many fans became curious to learn more about Jamie’s transgender daughter Ruby.
Everything we know about Ruby
Ruby is the daughter of Jamie and her husband Christopher Guest. As mentioned earlier the 25-year-old was assigned the male gender at birth and was previously known as Thomas.
While The Freaky Friday actress found massive success in show biz, none of her children followed in her footsteps. Ruby, whom Jamie and Christopher adopted in 1995, is a computer gaming editor by profession.
Jamie’s daughter is a very private person, hence we could not find her social media handles. However, the actress did reveal another piece of information about her daughter.
The star revealed that Ruby is set to marry her fiancé next year. The proud mother of two further revealed that she will officiate the wedding ceremony.
Back in 2019 Ruby had shared a picture with her girlfriend, although it’s unclear if the pair is still together.
Actress opens up about daughter’s transition
Speaking about Ruby’s transition, Jamie stated, she and her husband “have watched in wonder and pride as our son, became our daughter Ruby.”
The actress also revealed that she has discarded the “old idea” that gender is fixed and is embracing the idea of a “constant metamorphosis.”
Jamie has always been a vocal supporter of the LGBTQ community. In 2017 she shared a Huffington Post article titled, Dear Trans Kids. The letter we all wish we had written. (from a trans teacher) on her Twitter.
In a 2019 interview, she also stated that a person’s sexuality is nobody else’s business. Hence such questions should not be thrown at people who are not comfortable opening up about them.
Born to Hollywood parents Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, Jamie has talked about feeling compassion towards the LGBTQ community’s struggles from a young age.
A look at the Jamie Lee Curtis’ children
Jamie and her husband Christopher struggled with infertility for many years before adopting their eldest daughter Annie Guest in 1986. The pair adopted Ruby, nine years later.
Both of Jamie’s children have largely stayed out of the limelight for the most part. The actress’ kids have only made a few awards show appearances with her. While Ruby is making her mark in the gaming business, Annie (34 years old) is a dance instructor. Not much is revealed about their personal lives.
