Curtis also shared that Ruby — who was previously known as Thomas — would also soon walk down the aisle. 

‘And she and her fiancé will get married next year at a wedding that I will officiate,’ the Halloween star added.

Ruby, 25, is a computer gaming editor, and Curtis and Guest also have a 34-year-old daughter, Annie, who is a dance instructor.

Jamie Lee tossed out the ‘old idea’ that gender isn’t fixed and is instead leaning into the idea that life is a ‘constant metamorphosis.’

And while wedding bells will soon ring in the family, Curtis told the publication she doesn’t have any grandchildren: ‘Not yet, but I do hope to.’ 

Curtis also discussed being 22 years sober after secretly battling an addiction to pain pills and alcohol. 

She explained that the ‘process of being a sober person puts you in a one day at a time mentality.’

Jamie stood proudly in her status and noted she was : ‘just a sober person — flawed, contradictory, broken and redeemed.’

Her sobriety journey has taught her comfort in living for each day and letting go of the past. 

‘I am somebody who sheds every day,’ she says. ‘Let’s get rid of that, I don’t need that. It’s all about old ideas that don’t work anymore.’  

Earlier this year, she wrote on Instagram: ‘I’m breaking the cycle that has basically destroyed the lives of generations in my family.

‘Getting sober remains my single greatest accomplishment … bigger than my husband, bigger than both of my children and bigger than any work, success, failure. Anything.’
