Jesse and Zoe Barshop are energetic five-year-old twins; they are inseparable but they are very different. People assume Jesse is a boy but the twins are actually sisters.
Their mother is Real Housewives of New York star Cindy Barshop. From a very early age, she says Jesse wanted to dress like a boy.
“I was trying to find very girly tomboy clothes for her, and we were out and she said: ‘mommy, I want to go here.’ It was the boy’s section,” she said.
She doesn’t like wearing a dress and her mom says she "gravitates to hang out with the boys more because of the sports and Zoe, the girls."
Cindy added: But the point is I’m not putting any type of label on anything right now - just let them be happy. Labeling what they want to be and what they should be – no. Anything you wanna be is fine.”
Cindy says no matter what, she'll be supportive. No secrets or shame in her house, she says.
“I think it is so sad when we hear about Caitlyn Jenner and what a miserable person she must have been living for other people,” Cindy said.
The proud mom added: “Whatever she wants to do when she gets older, she will do. Will I ever want to change that? Absolutely not.”
