She wrote: "Yes, It’s true. Bear cut his hair!!

"My baby’s growing up 😭💔 I miss his hair!!!!!

"Was it his decision? Yes. Did I cry inside as I watched him get it cut? Maybe… but did I try to stop him? Not for one second."

Alicia continued: "The reason he chose to keep it for as long as he did was because he loved it so much!!!

"He just wanted to try something new. Although I have a feeling he’ll find a way back to his long hair again in the future."

Back in September, Alicia revealed that Bear had been bullied due to his length of his hair.

The actress wrote: "I just love him so much! 🥰 Great Sunday hanging with my little baby.. Well, I guess he’s not so little anymore! We went for a swim and now we’re getting ready to make some dinner!

"Also I just LOVE his hair in this image, I had to grab a quick pic. One time my son was made fun of by other kids because of his hair on a bus ride to surf camp.

"After he had returned and told me, I thought he would want to cut it for a haircut appointment we had already scheduled the next day, but when we showed up, he said “please give me a trim so I can grow it to my waist.”

She proudly continued: "That’s my boy! He knows who he is. He loves his hair and chooses to have it long. Mama and Papa aren’t going to stop him from being him.

"He’s beautiful and we love his hair! We would never impose any social ideas about what hair on a boy or girl should look like. We should all try to embrace our children and who they choose to be without any judgement!

"Plus there are so many very handsome men who have long hair Brad Pitt… Harry Styles…. Jason Momoa… even Jesus 😉… all long hair! Just sayin.. 😂❤️ #family #love."
