    After being diagnosed with Klinefelter's syndrome, a condition that occurs in men who have an extra X chromosome, Prince says he began growing breasts. "I noticed that my nipple area started to be very tender, hurting, almost like there was something underneath." <br> Here, Prince is pictured with her son, Barry.<br>

    "I felt different. Not so much female or male. I was my own person," Prince told ABC News. "No longer was the gender lines a binary system of just men and women, and neither did I have to commit to one side or another."

    "Ted's hair regimen would have been just wash, dry it, and a little gel. That was it. Being a male, you didn't have to have a bunch of expensive hair products like curling irons and dryers. Chloe definitely appreciates those things," Prince said.<br>
