Busy Philipps is opening up to fans.

During the most recent episode of her podcast Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best on Thursday (December 31), the 41-year-old actress revealed that her eldest child Birdie, 12, is gay.

“For those of you who are my friends listening at home, this is the first you’re hearing that Birdie is gay and out,” Busy shared with her cohosts Shantira Jackson and Caissie St. Onge. “Birdie told us at 10 years old and we immediately… I mean obviously, I knew that Birdie knew.”

Busy shares Birdie and daughter Cricket, 7, with her husband Marc Silverstein.

Later in the podcast, Busy also revealed that Birdie prefers using the they/them pronouns.

“I said, ‘You know, Bird, I’ve been doing a bad job with the pronouns,’” Busy recalled. “Because Birdie said that they would like their pronouns to be they/them, and I haven’t been doing it, and I said because 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.”

Busy continued, “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.’”

“So Birdie, my out kid, prefers they/them,” Busy added. “I f—k up sometimes, but I’m trying my best at that, too.”
