This has been a really fantastic year for Chaz Bono, not only is he marrying longtime girlfriend Jennifer Elia, Chaz also got an Emmy nomination for ‘Becoming Chaz’ and he is over the moon about finally being able to grow facial hair.
Chaz shared his feelings on getting the Emmy nod;
“I was at home. Up really early and was getting in the shower and someone tweeted congratulations. Jenny came running in and said I think we have got an Emmy nomination. It couldn’t have been more of a surprise.”
Bono also opened up about being able to grow facial hair;
“I’ve always been attracted to facial hair since I was a little kid. I remember my mom had a boyfriend for years that I absolutely adored. He had a beard. I remember thinking I wish I could have a beard like that. I’m the luckiest guy in the world. People’s interest in me has always been interesting to me. I have always wanted to grow facial hair. I’m excited and if other people are getting a kick out of it, fine.”
What an amazing year for you Chaz, we couldn’t be happier for you!
