Megan Fox and her husband (because they’re not getting divorced this year, we’ll see what happens next year) Brian Austin Green have previously talked about how their 6-year-old son Noah (seen above in an old pic from 2016) has been wearing dresses for some time now. With Noah in school, Megan talked about how she navigates raising a boy who expresses himself differently and how to be a supportive mom through that. Charlize Theron, you got some competition in the woke mom woman department!
Megan sat down with the women of The Talk to chat about her life, and since she’s the mom of three children–Noah, 5-year-old Bodhi and 3-year-old Journey–that involves a lot of parenting. Ick: sounds terrible. But Megan is loving it. Good for her.
“He designs, he draws outfits and then when I do fittings–yeah, he’s very talented–but he’s still six so… when I do fitting, like I did one recently and I had this really beautiful yellow dress on, and he kept draping it in a way where he’s like: ‘If we do it like this, it looks like a diaper!’ I was like, ‘That’s not what we’re going for this time, but maybe next time!’“
Megan also talked about the punk-ass bullies in school who think that Noah can’t wear dresses, but she’s always encouraging him to ignore them and love himself:
“Sometimes, he’ll dress himself and he likes to wear dresses, sometimes… And I send him to a really liberal, like, hippy school, but even there–here in California–he still has little boys going: ‘Boys don’t wear dresses’ or ‘Boys don’t wear pink.’ So we’re going through that now, where I’m trying to teach him to be confident no matter what anyone else says. He had stopped wearing dresses for a while–he just wore one two days ago to school, and he came home and I was like: ‘How was it? Did any of the friends at school have anything to say?’ And he was like: ‘Well, all the boys laughed when I came in… but I don’t care, I love dresses too much.’“
Say what you want about Megan Fox (and we have!), but look at her raising a gender-non-conforming lil future fashion mogul. But if Brian Austin Green, who was in the original Saved By The Bell, should join the remake with Mario Lopez, and brings Noah to the set, prepare to hear about how the head of AC Slater was seen flying above Hollywood after being hit with the shocking sight of a boy in a dress.
