Actress Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed her daughter is transgender.

She told US publication AARP that she “watched in wonder and pride as our son became our daughter Ruby”.

The 62-year-old said Ruby and her fiance “will get married next year at a wedding that I will officiate”.

The actress and husband Christopher Guest also have another daughter called Annie.

When asked by the magazine if she has grandchildren, Curtis replied: “Not yet, but I do hope to.”

In a post on Instagram sharing the interview, she said her family is “flourishing”.

She shared a picture of the magazine cover, writing: “I very rarely smile in photographs. An old idea. I couldn’t help myself though during this shoot with @aarp @brianbowensmith because I AM SO HAPPY!

“Happy to be me. Happy to be having such a creative time [working on two Halloween films]. Happy that I’m sober and clear. Happy that my family is safe and flourishing. Happy that my little company @my_hand_in_yours has raised over $300,000 for [Children’s Hospital LA]. ... LIFE IS SWEET! It takes a village to make a cover!”

Curtis, the daughter of Hollywood legends Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, started her career in horror films including Halloween and The Fog before starring in films such as Trading Places, True Lies, Veronica Mars and Knives Out.

Her husband, a writer and actor, is best-known for his starring role in cult mockumentary This is Spinal Tap playing rock guitarist Nigel Tufnel.
