Or­ange Is the New Black star Ruby Rose (right) has re­vealed that she opened up about com­ing out as a les­bian to her mother at the age of 12. The 30-year-old ac­tor, who is cur­rently dat­ing singer Jess Origliasso, said she was ini­tially hes­i­tant to talk about her sex­ual iden­tity with her mother but when she did, she was sur­prised to find that her mother al­ready seemed to know, re­ported The Huff­in­g­ton Post.

“She knew when I was six ap­par­ently. I didn’t know any­one else who was gay or a les­bian. So I didn’t re­ally know how to word it. So I was just like, ‘I think I should let you know, that when I even­tu­ally get a boyfriend, there’ll be a girl.’ And she was just like, ‘I know’,” Rose said on an Amer­i­can show.

She added, “I was like, ‘Re­ally, mom,’ I don’t even think I knew then. I didn’t think it was pos­si­ble. Ap­par­ently it is and it makes sense.”
