Amy revealed that the day was particularly a memorable one because it was their daughter Stella's fifth birthday and a few days into her first week of school.

Stella's gender change

One can understand how that date will always be a significant one in Stella's life. However, she underwent more significant events later on.

According to reports, Stella chose to transition into a male after turning 18. He officially made a complete transition which came with facial hair and an official name change as he's now known as Noah Lee Ritter.

Since he transitioned, Noah has chosen to maintain his social media privacy so as to shield himself from the criticisms that often come with decisions like this.

His personal life has been really low-key despite coming from such a famous family.

Just like his father

Even from the time he was Stella, Noah has been into acting like his father. He was most popular for voicing the character Hannah in Hannah Lost Her Smile and had roles in other films like The Namazu and This Is My Friend.
