It’s in their genes! Busy Philipps and more celebrity parents’ kids are into acting, just like their moms and dads.
News broke in July 2021 that the Dawson’s Creek alum’s eldest child, Birdie, had been cast in a non-binary role in Gloria Calderón Kellett‘s With Love. https://timesnewsnetworks.com
“This just made me cry,” the former Busy Tonight host tweeted at the time, reposting Kellett’s announcement.
The casting came six months after the Illinois native revealed that her child had come out and chosen to use they/them pronouns.
“Birdie told us at 10 years old and we immediately … I mean, obviously, I knew that Birdie knew,” the Cougar Town alum said in a January 2021 episode of her “Busy Philipps Is Doing Her Best” podcast. “Birdie said that they would like their pronouns to be they them, and I haven’t been doing it. I have this public persona and I want Birdie to be in control of their own narrative and not have to answer to anybody outside of our friends and family if they don’t want to. Bird was like, ‘I don’t give a f–k. You can talk about how I’m gay and out. You can talk about my pronouns. That would be cool with me. That’s great.’ So I said, ‘OK, I can talk about it on the podcast.’”
