Jamie Lee Curtis is joyfully announcing that her younger daughter is transgender.
The screen legend, who shares two children with husband Christopher Guest, revealed in an interview with AARP on Wednesday that she has “watched in wonder and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby.”
Making sure to note that she received Ruby’s permission to share the news, Curtis said that the 25-year-old works as a computer gaming editor and is engaged to be married next year.
“I will officiate,” Curtis added about the upcoming nuptials.
The 62-year-old actor said her daughter’s transition helped challenge her past beliefs that gender identity and expression are fixed, explaining that this current stage of life is a “constant metamorphosis.”
“I am somebody who sheds every day,” she told the magazine. “Let’s get rid of that, I don’t need that. It’s all about old ideas that don’t work anymore.”
Curtis and Guest also have a daughter named Annie, a 34-year-old dance instructor who is married.
On the topic of potentially becoming a grandparent in the future, Curtis said, “Not yet, but I do hope to.”
The actor shared a photo of the magazine cover Wednesday on Instagram, writing in the caption that she is “happy that my family is safe and flourishing.”
