Megan Fox has three sons with her ex-husband Brian Austin Green. The actress recently slammed Robby Starbuck over comments on her kids’ wearing girls clothes and gender identity.
Megan Fox made her acting debut in the family film Holiday in the Sun, which was followed by numerous supporting roles in film and television, such as the teen musical comedy Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, as well as a starring role in the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith.
Fans of the American actress were amused upon hearing the news of her repairing her relationship with singer and rapper Machne Gun Kelly. The lovers broke up in March 2023 but were shortly seen vacationing together in Hawaii.
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly (real name Colson Baker) started off their relationship by being coworkers, but it quickly evolved into something more. The Tennessee native and the “Rap Devil” singer met on the set of Midnight in the Switchgrass in March 2020.
Before Megan and MGK were an item, Fox was married to Brian Austin Green, who she shares her three sons with.
Who are Megan Fox’s children?
The Till Death actress shares her children with ex-husband Brian Austin Green, whom she split from in 2020 after 16 years of an on-and-off relationship.
The couple “co-parent really well together,” Green previously told E! News. They share custody and each have their kids half of the time, taking care to respect the other parent’s window with them.
“[We] don’t fight over time with the kids,” the 90210 alum said, adding that they “try and alternate holidays between Christmas Day, Christmas Eve.”
Megan Fox has her hands full as a mom of three boys: sons Noah, Bodhi and Journey.
“For me, it’s like UFC Fight Night all day, everyday,” she joked on The Kelly Clarkson Show, explaining that they’re all close enough in age to be constantly pushing each other’s buttons.
“They love each other. They’re best friends, but the fighting is non-stop because they have so much energy and they’re so rambunctious that it’s just a melee,” she said.
The actress credits her kids for helping her to become a better person, telling The Washington Post that they “kind of saved me.” Speaking about raising them, she siid, “It’s fertile soil. It’s given me the ground that I needed to grow into something quite special.”
In return, she strives to nurture them without micromanaging. “They were born to be who they are, and it’s my job to support that process, not to get involved and micromanage and mold them into what I think they should be.”
Here’s everything to know about Megan Fox’s three sons.
Noah Shannon Green, 10
Noah Shannon Green is the first child between Megan and her ex-husband Brian Austin but the secod child for Green as he already had a son named Kassius with his ex Vanessa Marcil.
Noah was born on September 27, 2012 and is currently 10 years old.
The actress broke her baby news herself, writing on Facebook, “We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do.” She went on to share that she had welcomed a son, revealing his sex, name and birthday. “He is healthy, happy, and perfect,” she wrote.
Bodhi Ransom Green, 9
Fox and Green welcomed their second child, son Bodhi, on Feb. 12, 2014. His name has special significance in Buddhism, translating as “enlightened,” which is what drew Fox to the moniker.
“Bodhi is, in Buddhism, it’s the point when Buddha became enlightened and he reached nirvana, he was sitting beneath the Bodhi tree,” Fox said on Conan in 2014. She added that she “would be lying” if she didn’t admit that she was also influenced by Patrick Swayze’s character in “the greatest movie of all time, Point Break.”
As for Bodhi’s middle name, it’s “also sort of religious and spiritual for me,” she said, noting that it means “being saved” and is also her great-grandfather’s middle name.
Journey River Green, 6
Fox and Green welcomed their third child together, son Journey, on Aug. 4, 2016.
Their baby news came after a rough patch, during which Fox filed for divorce in 2015. Despite their split, the pair were seen out together with and without their sons on a number of occasions, prompting speculation that the breakup wasn’t final. Just a few months after filing, they revealed that they had reconciled and were expecting again.
“I feel great. I love being pregnant,” the Midnight in the Switchgrass actress told Extra at the time. “I feel so productive creating a human person that I’m so excited to meet because I know that I have such a spiritual connection to them. So I can’t wait to meet this new member of my family.”
What has Megan Fox said about her kids’ wearing dresses?
According to Megan, when her first son Noah was around 2 years, he developed an interest in wearing dresses.
“Sometimes, he’ll dress himself and he likes to wear dresses sometimes,” Fox told The Talk in 2019. “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 ‘Boys don’t wear pink.’ “
“So we’re going through that now, where I’m trying to teach him to be confident no matter what anyone else says,” she added, sharing that after he’d recently been laughed at for wearing a dress to school, he told her, “‘I don’t care, I love dresses too much.’ ”
To help him navigate the bullies and instill confidence, Fox reads him books that encourage self-expression in all its forms. “Some of the books are just about how you can be a boy and wear a dress; you can express yourself through your clothing however you want,” she said on The Talk. “And that doesn’t even have to have anything to do with your sexuality.”
His interest extends to fashion design as well. “He designs, he draws outfits. He’s very talented,” said Fox, who added that he often likes to help style her during fittings.
Beyond his love of fashion, her “gentle soul” is also a music lover. “I’m so proud of my kids,” she gushed, revealing her eldest’s secret talent. “Noah is an unbelievable pianist. He can learn Mozart’s concerto in an hour.”
In a recent interview for her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover, the mom of three said that Noah is “an artist” with strong Libra and Pisces energy, adding, “[It] blows my mind how talented he is.”
Megan Fox isn’t happy with Robby Starbuck’s recent comments about her kids’ gender identity.
Megan Fox has fired back at Robby Starbuck, who ran for U.S. Congress in 2022, over his comments on her kids’ gender identity. Starbuck had accused Fox of forcibly dressing her sons in girls clothes in a post on Twitter. The actress fired back with a lengthy response on Instagram, Saturday.
“Hey @robbystarbuck, i really don’t want to give you this attention because clearly youre a clout chaser but let me teach you something… irregardless of how desperate you may become at any given time to acquire wealth, power, success, or fame – never use children as leverage or social currency. Especially under malevolent and erroneous pretense exploiting my child’s gender identity to gain attention in your political campaign has put you on the wrong side of the universe.”
Fox continued: “i have been burned at the stake by insecure, narcissistic, impotent little men like you many times and yet i’m still here. You f*cked with the wrong witch.” As for Robby Starbuck’s original comments, he posted a photo of Fox with her children while adding in the caption: “We used to live in the same gated community and our kids played at the park. I saw 2 of them have a full on breakdown saying they were forced by their mom to wear girls clothes as their nanny tried to console them. It’s pure child abuse. Pray for them.”
The father of Fox’s children, Brian Austin Green, also shot down Starbuck’s allegation. “It’s a totally bogus story. There are only a few people in their world that can actually verify wether [sic] or not a story like this is true and I can tell you with absolute certainty it is not,” Green said during a statement to TMZ. “This person trying to claim this is true is a perfect example of someone with selfish motives that does not care about negatively affecting a parent child relationship.” He further accused Starbuck of being “full of s**t.
