Emma Willis shared a sweet picture of her three kids ‘expressing themselves’ for Children’s Mental Health Week.
The TV presenter has been praised in the past for ‘breaking gender stereotypes’ after posting photos of her son Ace with long hair and a pink top.
She revealed Ace had dyed his hair bright pink in a new Instagram photo alongside his sisters Isabelle and Trixie.
They were all wearing clothes they felt comfortable in and reflected their personalities.
The Big Brother host said she ‘couldn’t be prouder’ to hear her children talking to their classmates about their feelings.
The mum-of-three said on Instagram: ‘Expressing themselves for #childrensmentalhealthweek.
‘Raised in exactly the same way, yet all completely unique. My teenager before her time, my boss lady baby and my rainbow boy.
‘This week I’ve watched them discuss and explore their own mental health with their teachers and class mates and I couldn’t be prouder.
‘I don’t remember experiencing anything like this when I was at school but it’s so obviously necessary for our kids, so their little minds can start to understand their thoughts, feeling, and emotions and that they feel comfortable expressing them.’
Emma previously said she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the positive response to the picture she shared of Ace last year.
She told Good Morning Britain: ‘It’s just my son in a pink top. And for me that’s kind of normality.
‘He loves colour, he’s always had long hair and he’s a very free and open-minded boy who doesn’t really… he’s like, Why do I have to dress in green and blue and grey if I like pink and red and purple – why isn’t that OK?”
‘He’s kind of always been that way. We, I think, are trying to raise him as a very open-minded and inclusive individual.’
