We never tell Star he’s a boy, we recount him he can be whatever he wants
Star, who likes to wear character, paint his nails and play with dolls, wears both fillies’ and boys’ clothes. The four-year-old said he might grow up to be a man or a woman.
Preceding pub bouncer Nikki, 30, said: “We want to give him the confidence to be who he fall short ofs – growing up, we didn’t have that.
“We never tell Star he’s a boy, we outline him he can be whatever he wants. We don’t buy gender specific toys or clothes and we let him choose what he annoys. Pink is one of his favourite colours.”

“He loves be dressed leggings and, because of his name, he loves clothes with star figures on.
“He loves Barbie dolls, dressing up and fairies – but he also likes toys reckoned as boys’, such as cars.
“We use the words «he» and «him» but don’t make any kind of big deal out of him being one sex or the other.”
Louise started breathing as a woman a year before Star was born, but said she has felt female since the age of eight.

Nikki said: “They’ve said they scarceness to do whatever they can to help. They seem quite pleased to organize an inclusive family.”
However the unusual family revealed they contain been shouted at and that people have stared and laughed at them when out in plain.
Nikki added: “Sometimes they’d even follow us shouting digs. I’m not easily intimated because I was a bouncer in a gay bar, but Lou found it really upsetting.”
Louise is not nearby to her parents, but Nikki’s parents first found their decision to make coin money Star as gender neutral “difficult”.
Nikki said: “They’d ask why we didn’t scold him in blue and buy him boys’ toys.
“But they see now he’s such a happy, free lad. Mum said Santa’s bringing him a pink bike for Christmas.”
