Megan Fox is facing controversy over a photo of her son in a dress

The mum-of-three is notoriously private about her family.

Gender stereotyping can be a big issue when it comes to kids’ clothes.

Now one star has caused a stir online with a new photo of her young family.

Megan Fox is mum to three boys – Noah, 4, Bodhi, 3, and Journey, 11 months – with her husband, actor Brian Green.

She tends to keep her brood out of the spotlight but yesterday shared a rare photo of the boys with her Instagram followers.

The cute snap shows Noah wearing an Elsa dress, while other son Bodhi poses with a fake moustache and little Journey is seen strapped to his dad.

The photo appears to have divided Megan’s fans, however, as some questioned allowing a little boy to wear a princess dress.

“Another Hollywood weirdo mom… so disgusting you allow your son to wear princess dresses,” wrote one commenter.

“You’re sickening!,” said another, while one commenter even accused Megan of pushing a “gay agenda.”

Other fans jumped to the actress’s defence, saying that letting a child play dress-up is “no big deal.”

“Her boys are just darling. They can express themselves how they want.”

“How can people judge like that???maybe the kid wanted that dress… LET THEM BE.”

“They seem happy and healthy, that’s all that matters. Go take care of your own kids if you even have any. If you don’t, you have zero say in how anyone should raise their child.”

It’s not the first time Megan’s been criticised for letting her children wear what they want.

Online trolls also condemned the star when paparazzi photos of Noah wearing a dress emerged in May of this year, as Life & Style reported at the time.

Meanwhile, BBC broadcaster Chris Evans was spotted out in London last night with his young son, who was wearing a dress.

Little Eli donned an emerald green dress for a night at the theatre with his dad, mum Natasha Shishmanian and brother Noah.
