Shiloh Jolie-Pitt isn’t one to shy away from wearing a suit over a dress, but Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have recognized her desire to be a boy and have consulted professional help.
The supportive parents have consulted a specialist, RadarOnline reports, because the 9-year-old “wants to be a boy" and they “are committed to giving Shiloh a loving family environment."
"Brad and Angelina were only coming from a place of love and only wanting the best for Shiloh," an insider told Radar. "They want Shiloh to feel loved and secure."
Back in 2008, Brad opened up about how Shiloh requested to be called “John” in an interview with Oprah. Angie went further and told Vanity Fair in 2010: “She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers."
According to the source, Brad and Angelina have been “very accepting of Shiloh's choices,” but still had their questions.
“Brad wondered if Shiloh was just a tomboy and would outgrow it,” the insider said.
The source continued: “Brad was concerned having two older brothers was perhaps influencing Shiloh, and wondered if she would do so if there were no boys in the family.”
But after meeting with the speciality, Brad and Angelina were reassured that it was Shiloh’s own choice and to let her continue her life as she wishes.
"Brad was told Shiloh would have gravitated towards dressing as a boy, and being called John, even if her siblings were all girls," the source claimed. "It's just the way Shiloh is, and there is nothing per se that they did wrong as parents."
