Heather Dubrow and husband Terry Dubrow are celebrating their youngest child, who has come out as transgender at age 12.

On March 4, the Real Housewives of Orange County star shared a tribute to the pre-teen and revealed his name -- Ace.

"It's International sons day!" Heather wrote on Instagram. "We love you, our youngest son, Ace."

The Bravo star, who included a photo of "ACE" written on a beach, continued, "Our job as parents is to give our kids a safe and supportive environment so they can grow up as healthy, happy, confident, independent humans. Since Ace is a 12 year old child, with a long life ahead of him - we will let him tell his own story someday if he chooses to do so. All we can say is Ace, we love you so much and we are proud to be your parents. Your brother and sisters love and support you too."

In addition to Ace, Heather and the Botched plastic surgeon are also parents to twin son Nick—who also received a Sons Day tribute from his mom on her Instagram Stories—and daughter Max, 19, plus daughter Kat, 16. Max commented on her mom's post, "Love you ace," with a red heart emoji.
