In a British family, one of the twin brothers told everyone that he was a girl and asked them to call him Lily. Parents have come to terms with the "feature" of their child and are trying to provide him with a happy life.
In Britain, in the family of Matt and Rousey Downes, a difficult event happened for the spouses. The couple is raising two twin boys, and one of them decided to… become a girl! The parents decided not to punish, but to support their son. According to the couple, their son Joe told everyone that his name was Lily, and now everyone calls him that.
Puzzled parents recall that such metamorphoses with their son began when he was 18 months old. Even then, in the children's store, Joe was attracted only by pink toys and dolls, while his brother preferred cars or comic book superheroes. According to the stories of the spouses, at the age of three, the guys went to kindergarten, where the twin Ollie immediately found a common language with the boys, and Joe became friends with the girls and dressed up in girlish clothes.
Matt and Rosie were very worried about this behavior of their son. Ollie's second twin was no less worried than his parents. He was sure that he had lost his brother forever, and he cried all night long. The couple blamed themselves, thinking that they somehow encouraged their son in such actions. Initially, each of them resisted and did not fulfill Joe's wishes. The couple understood that their son was too small to make the decision to change sex.
The turning point for the family was the twins' sixth birthday. Then the Downes finally came to terms with their son's self-awareness and allowed him to come to the party dressed as Elsa from the Disney cartoon Frozen. Jo-Lily was incredibly happy and walked around in a dress in front of the guests and friends of his brother Ollie without hesitation.
Now the twins go to school. And the boy who calls himself a girl grows his hair and is immensely happy that the administration of the educational institution allowed him to wear a female uniform. Matt and Rosie admitted to the press that they understand how everyone is whispering behind their backs, but they don’t dare to say anything in person. However, parents try to provide a happy life for their "special" child.
