During a chat mother Shalee Ellis had in January with her six-year-old daughter Layla, Layla revealed that her tiny head holds a very enlightened mind. As BuzzFeed reported, the conversation (that Shalee only recently shared on Facebook) was regarding the fact that Layla's father and Shalee's wife is transitioning into a woman.
I have been asked several times about how Layla responded to being told about her dad being transgender. I turned my camera on half way through the conversation, and this is what ensued. #unconditionallove #transgender #hatredistaught #teamshallory #translivesmatter ETA: this is from early January. ***To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email firstname.lastname@example.orgPosted by Shalee Olivia Ellis on Thursday, March 24, 2016
Shalee was checking in to see how Layla felt about Mallory's transition. Layla sees nothing out of the ordinary with the whole situation, which touched Shalee so much she started filming the conversation halfway through.
"How does that make you feel?"
Layla just shouts, "GOOD!" like only a precious child can in what otherwise might be considered a complicated situation. Battling her daughter in competition for most adorable reaction is Mallory's wife, Shalee. That woman is what one might call an incredibly supportive partner. "We have decided to help daddy become the person his brain and his heart tells him that he is."
