Megan Fox Reveals How She’s Raising Her Sons to NOT Be “Like the Men She’s Been With”
Like all moms, Megan Fox has hopes for her children, wishing they would grow into remarkable individuals. For Megan, raising her three sons means guiding them with values she believes will truly count, especially ones that will help them in their future love lives.
Teaching her sons about love from the example she sets.
The A-list actress proudly embraces her role as a mother to three sons: Noah, Bodhi, and Journey, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Brian Austin Green. Despite their divorce back in 2020, Megan Fox and Brian maintain an amicable relationship, placing their children’s happiness above all else.
In a recent interview, Megan opened up about her commitment to raising her sons to love in a healthy way. Reflecting on past relationship challenges, she acknowledged that she doesn’t want them to grow up like the men she dated. “It’s very important to me to raise boys who are not like these men that I’ve been with.” She explained, “It’s very important for me to raise boys who are able to have a very deep emotional intimacy with their partner.”
Megan then described the attitudes she wishes her sons to avoid. She emphasized the importance of them not being liars but, instead, being able to be “fully transparent, honest, and respectful at some point in their lives.” However, Megan doesn’t expect them to find ’sacred love’ at 16; nevertheless, she hopes they will experience it eventually.
As their first introduction to women, Megan also believes that how she loves her sons will influence how they love others in their future relationships. “I hope that through my transparency, in the way that I am demonstrative and affectionate with them,” she continued, “it allows them to love in a really healthy way.”
She wants them to be confident in their own skin.
When her son, Noah, decided to wear dresses at the age of two, Megan sought information to address the situation. She recalled purchasing a bunch of books written by transgender children. “Some of the books are about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want. And that doesn’t even have to do anything with your sexuality.”
She added, “Since they were very young, I’ve incorporated those things into their daily lives, so nobody feels like they’re weird or different.” Yet, she mentioned it wasn’t easy for Noah, as he still had to deal with negative comments from his peers despite attending a hippie, liberal school in California.
Consistently teaching her children to be confident regardless of others’ opinions, Megan remembered a moment when Noah wore a dress to school. When asked if his friends had reacted, he responded, “Well, all the boys laughed when I came in, but I don’t care. I love dresses too much.” Knowing that she couldn’t control how others reacted to her children’s choices, this mother opted not to post pictures of her children on social media.
In a different interview, Megan expressed both concern and immense affection. She said, “I’m so proud of my kids. Noah is an unbelievable pianist. He can learn Mozart’s concerto in an hour. I want people to see that, but I also don’t want the world to have access to this gentle soul and say all the things that we all know they’re going to say.”
