Daughter of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening to get sex change operation

Kathlyn Beatty, 18, has reportedly changed her name to Stephen Ira and is planning gender reassignment surgery

Topics: Celebrity, LGBT,

The 18-year-old daughter of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening is planning to undergo sex reassignment surgery, the San Francisco Examiner, New York Daily News and National Enquirer report. Kathlyn Beatty has been attending college as a man and now goes by the name Stephen Ira.

This isn’t the first time that rumors about Kathlyn have surfaced in the press: A 2008 Perez Hilton blind item said, “What teenage daughter of a superstar couple is living life as a transgender boy? Now going by the name Stephen, the teen’s parents pulled him out of the prestigious Buckley School in Los Angeles and are having him home-schooled to keep him out of the public eye.” Beatty fit the description, and her name was tossed around at the time.

Allegedly, Warren Beatty is “heartbroken” and “grief-stricken” over his oldest child’s decision. Media conversation has focused on Kathlyn’s age, with many outsiders saying she’s too young for the transition that 41-year-old Chaz Bono famously made over the past few years. While debate focuses on this and, naturally, her celebrity parents’ reactions, perhaps we should also be talking about Kathlyn’s bravery.

Below, watch Chaz Bono talking to Good Morning America about his experiences last year.
