For some parents, it’s just a confirmation when the child is coming out, while for others it comes as a surprise.
Former Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt was surprised when her 15-year-old daughter Camilla came out as a lesbian. It happened three years ago. Helle Thorning-Schmidt’s told that in last Wednesday show of Go’ morgen Danmark on TV2 Denmark.
But the surprise and the spontaneous “Oh no” were quickly replaced by pride.
”I get tears in my eyes when I thinking about her, because I’m so proud that she’s choosing her own life and how she wants to live it. I think its one of the strongest expressions that says she is a strong person,” says Helle Thorning-Schmidt in the Danish morning show.
