Former Real Housewives of Orange County Star Announces Her 14-Year-Old Child is ‘Transgender’

Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino has announced that her 14-year-old child is “transgender.”

Bellino now refers to her biological female child as her “son” Miles.

“Hey world, this is Miles. My transgender son,” Bellino wrote on Instagram. “He’s now a month shy of 15 yrs old, so he’s seen the questions and comments made about him on my IG. Miles now has a voice and has asked me to do this post.”

The former reality television show star continued, “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. I refused to post this for him for a while, but now I know Miles truly wants this because he’s tired of the misgendering and confusion people have, so we are setting the record straight and hopefully bringing clarity.”

Bellino continued on to write that she “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.” She claimed that the child had hidden their gender from everyone “for a while,” but came out to her 16 months ago.

“I’m so proud of Miles for wanting to stop the hate, and for being brave enough to step forward at such a young age,” Bellino wrote. “He now has his entire life to live the way he should. FYI all hate on my social media will be immediately deleted and that user instantly blocked. Let’s bring peace and happiness and unity from this. We are all human and we are ALL equal. I am 100% fully supportive of my son. I hope you will be too. I love you all. Thank you for supporting me and my family through all of our many transitions through the years. This world needs more love and kindness.”

Bellino joined RHOC for season 5 in 2009, and left by 2013.
