Busy Philipps shares daughter Birdie is back to using she/her pronouns

Busy Philipps’ oldest daughter, Birdie, has ditched they/them pronouns.

“The truth is Birdie has decided that her pronouns are she/her,” the “Cougar Town” alum told Page Six exclusively at the 2023 American Museum of Natural History Gala on Thursday night.

In 2021, the “Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best” podcaster shared that Birdie, now 15, was gay and preferred they/them pronouns.

She also admitted that she sometimes does a “bad job” with pronouns but was working on it because of how important it was to her daughter’s identity.

“Because Birdie said that they would like their pronouns to be they/them — and I haven’t been doing it — and I said because I have this public persona and I want Birdie to be in control of their own narrative and not have to answer to anybody outside of our friends and family if they don’t want to,” Philipps explained.

Busy Philipps shared that her daughter Birdie is now back to using she/her pronouns.
The “Cougar Town” alum shares Birdie with ex-Marc Silverstein.

“Bird was like, ‘I don’t give a f–k. You can talk about how I’m gay and out. You can talk about my pronouns. That would be cool with me. That’s great.’ So I said, ‘OK, I can talk about it on the podcast.’”

“So Birdie, my out kid, prefers they/them,” Philipps added. “I f–k up sometimes, but I’m trying my best at that, too.”

The “Freaks and Geeks” alum explained Thursday that Birdie’s reversal is “what’s so incredible about what gender-affirming care can be. That you allow kids to figure out who they are.”

She’ll soon be seen as Regina George’s mom in the eagerly awaited “Mean Girls” musical.

Philipps confessed to Page Six that she was “surprised” that the much-discussed trailer “didn’t show any of the musical parts,” however, she said she’s “not a marketing person.”

“I just show up and do my job!” she told us.

There is also a new season of the sitcom “Girls5eva” — helmed by Tina Fey — coming next year.
