If there鈥檚 anything that Jillian Michaels is known for (other than her amazing fit body), it鈥檚 her strong-willed nature and love of her family (seriously, her proposal will have you reaching for tissues). Not one to let others tell her what she can and cannot do, the same goes for her kids, at least in certain aspects of their lives. For instance, when Jillian鈥檚 four-year-old son decided he wanted his ears pierced, she was on board for a totally legit reason.

Jillian explained to fans that after his sister got her ears done, little Phoenix decided he wanted his ears pierced, too. And she allowed him. Why? 鈥淚 wasn鈥檛 about to say 鈥榯hat鈥檚 for girls.鈥欌 Le-git.

The majority of comments commended Michaels for breaking down gender barriers (or allowing her son to do so), including 鈥淗e鈥檚 such a cutie. Good for him, he knows what he like 鈥 it looks good on him though,鈥 and 鈥淚 want to <3 this a thousand more times!!!鈥 Not to mention 鈥淚 never comment but I love you more now. Your an amazing Mom! Xx,鈥 and the totally on-trend nostalgia-lovin鈥, 鈥淏ringing back the 90鈥檚 style. Love it.鈥

But of course, there are plenty of peeps who have their own opinions. 鈥淵ou should have! Be the adult responsible parent in his life!鈥 Whatever anyone else thinks, you can鈥檛 deny that鈥檚 one adorable little dude with an extremely happy smile on his face.
