Now we can see our favorite group of babies and their parents taking care of them. In the reboot, Phil and Lil's mother, Betty DeVille, is now openly gay. The news was confirmed by actress Natalie Morales, who voices Betty, in a recent interview with The A.V. Club.

"Anyone who watched the original show may have had an inkling Betty was a member of the alphabet mafia," Natalie started. "Betty is a single mom with her own business who has twins and still has time to hang out with her friends and her community."

Natalie came out as queer in 2017 and explained it's very important for her to have a character like Betty on TV. "I think it's just so great because examples of living your life happily and healthily as an out queer person is just such a beacon for young queer people who may not have examples of that."
