Any parent who has ever throw their hands up in surrender when trying to get all of their children to pose for just ONE NICE FAMILY PHOTO can totally relate to actress Megan Fox. The Hollywood starlet, who shares sons Journey, 3, Bodhi, 5, and Noah, 7 with husband Brian Austin Green, doesn't post many pictures of her family on social media, but the mom of three recently shared a picture of the entire family enjoying a recent visit to Disneyland and mothers everywhere can totally relate to her struggles.
Fox shared a handful of pictures on Instagram from her family's Halloween adventures at Disneyland but was frustrated that she couldn't seem to get one picture where everyone was looking at the camera! "Halloween at @disneyland is always the most fun but can I get ONE family photo where everyone is looking at the camera and making a semi normal face ?? #disneyland" the actress wrote. This is the struggle of every family with children trying to take a family photo!
Both Fox and Green have been remained quite private about their relationship and family in the past. Fox revealed she was pregnant with Journey when she arrived on the CinemaCon red carpet in Las Vegas in 2016 to do press for her movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows sporting a very visible baby bump. She and Green were separated at the time, prompting speculation about who the father was. Thankfully Fox has a great sense of humor and even indulged the rumors before confirming that she and Green had reconciled.
Fox also explained on a recent appearance on The Talk that her oldest son Noah, who dressed as a witch with a bright pink wig for his trip to Disneyland, loves fashion and will often wear dresses to school. She explained that she's encouraging her son to wear whatever he wants and express himself any way he chooses no matter what others say.
"He designs, he draws outfits," Fox explained during her visit to the talk show. "He's very talented. But he's still 6, so when I do fittings ... like I did one recently, and I had this really beautiful yellow dress on. He kept draping it in a way where he was like, 'If we do it like this, it looks like a diaper.' And I was like, 'That is great. That's not what we're going for this time, but maybe next time,'" the mother of three explained.
She went on to add that "He likes to wear dresses sometimes and I send him to a really liberal, hippy school, but even there — here in California — he still has little boys going, 'Boys don't wear dresses' or 'Boy don't wear pink.' And so, we're going through that now, where I'm trying to teach him to be confident, no matter what anyone else says."She explained that her son went through a period where he stopped wearing dresses because of the negative comments, but recently decided to wear one to school again.
"He just wore one two days ago to school and he came home, and I was like, 'How was it? Did any of the friends at school have anything to say?'" She said that Noah told her that some of the children laughed but that it didn't bother him this time. "I don't care," he said. "I love dresses too much."
Last year Fox defended her decision to allow her sons to have long hair and wear dresses to TODAY Parents, noting that it's simply a matter of letting her children choose how they want to express themselves. “I let my kids wear what they want!” she said. “They will tell me what they are. It’s not my job to teach them that.” Fox seemed just as fed up with the mom-shaming as many other celebrities saying, “I thought it was illegal, honestly, to shame a child or shame a mom for what a child wears… in 2018,” she exclaimed.
They all look happy and well-loved to us, even if they aren't all looking at the camera at the same time!
