Back in 2019, Jaah Kelly opened up to Paper Magazine about gender and sexuality. His mother, Drea Kelly, praised her trans son, telling VH1, “All I can say about Jay is he makes it so easy to be a proud mom. For parents, we need to realize [that our kids] have their own journey. Parents get it wrong when they don't support their children. They have to go out and fight every day and face this world. The first battle should not be at home. I think that a lot of children in the LGBT community don't succeed because the one thing they need the most is [a] foundation. I just tell Jay all the time, baby, you won the war. You're gonna have a lot of battles, but you won the war. Mama accepts and loves you for who you are. Your family does."

Speaking with Reuters Magazine, Jolie spoke about her child's clothing choices, saying, " “I think she (Shiloh) is fascinating, the choices she is making, and I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting."
