Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino introduced fans to her 15-year-old trans son, Miles. In a heartfelt Instagram post, the former reality TV star opened up about her son’s journey with a length caption. “Hey world, this is Miles.
My transgender son. He’s now a month shy of 15 yrs old, so he’s seen the questions and comments made about him on my IG,” she wrote alongside a sweet photo of the pair. “Miles now has a voice and has asked me to do this post.
I had stopped posting for the past few months due to this transition in Miles’ life, but he’s now ready to “come out” and to use this platform to stop any hate or questions.” Bellino went on to say that she initially put off posting his coming out announcement but changed her tune after her followers continued to misgender him. “I cannot imagine the strength and courage it took for my baby to do this, but I’m extremely proud of him, and I want everyone to understand that love doesn’t change in these situations.
It’s unconditional love,” she continued. “Miles came out as a transgender boy to me over 16 months ago. He hid it from everyone else for a while, but eventually, he got to where we are right now.
