"Noah started wearing dresses when he was about two, and I bought a bunch of books that sort of addressed these things and addressed a full spectrum of what this is. Some of the books are written by transgender children. Some of the books are just about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want. And that doesn't even have to have anything to do with your sexuality. From the time they were very young, I've incorporated those things into their daily lives so that nobody feels like they are weird or strange or different," Fox explained.

Megan Fox's 6-year-old son loves to wear dresses, says he doesn't care if other boys laugh at him: 'Be confident no matter what'

Fox has three kids with her former husband Brian Austin Green, namely Noah, 9, Bodhi, 8, and Journey, 5. She added, "I can't control the way other people react to my children. I can't control the things that other children – that they go to school with – have been taught and then repeat to them. That's also why I don't really put my children on Instagram or social media. I'm so proud of my kids. Noah is an unbelievable pianist. He can learn Mozart's concerto in an hour."

"I want people to see that, but I also don't want the world to have access to this gentle soul and say all the things that we all know they're going to say. I send my kids to a school where the other parents are similar in their beliefs. And the other kids aren't really on the internet, the same way that most kids are. So they know that their parents are famous, but their knowledge of it is very limited," Fox continued.

"I knew when they were very young, I wanted to try to protect them however I could, especially limiting their exposure to the internet. So far, we've done a really good job and we maintain their innocence in a lot of ways, but I know I can't protect them forever, though I do have a child that suffers. So I have a lot of worries about that because I just wish that humanity was not like this. Although my kid is so brave and my child is so brave and I know that they've chosen this journey for a reason. It's just hard as a mom," she said.

Fox added that she wants to talk about these issues as they are important. "I have to be honest," she explains. Talking about the challenges she faces as a parent, the actress revealed, "It is hard because I travel for long periods of time and they have to attend school, which is what it is. I wish I could take them out to travel with me, it would make things a lot easier. I cry often, every new moon usually. I get in the bath and cry a lot about it because it is hard and not because of pressures that anybody else or society puts on you, but it is just hard being separated from them in that way. They are my DNA."

Fox married Green in June 2010 and filed for divorce in August 2015. In April 2019, she filed to dismiss the divorce, but in May 2020, it was announced that the longtime couple had separated after nearly 10 years of marriage. In June 2020, Fox made her relationship with musician Machine Gun Kelly public. She filed for divorce a second time in November 2020, and was finalized in October 2021. In January 2022, Machine Gun Kelly proposed to Fox, and the two got engaged.
