Chaz Bono admits his mother Cher has found it "hard" dealing with his sex change.
The 43-year-old writer-and-musician was born a girl, Chastity Bono, and made the decision to change genders in 2008 with the process taking two years.
Chaz knew he had to undergo the procedure after feeling like a man trapped in a woman's body all his life, but he claims his superstar mother Cher, 66, hasn't fully come to terms with his decision to switch sexes.
In an interview with The Sunday Times magazine, he explained: "It's been hard for mom, but her loss isn't based on who I was before I transitioned, as I was in no way, shape or form typically female.
"For her, it's more the loss of a fantasy that probably began even before I was (born) ... of her thinking about the kind of daughter she thought she'd have.
"Mom loves girlie stuff, so it was difficult because I was never that person. I could never give her that experience. I sense she's still not 100 per cent comfortable with what I've done. She's also bad with pronouns and remembering to call me Chaz."
Chaz legally changed his gender and name in May 2010, but he still has to undergo one final procedure to complete the gender swap process - an operation to create his penis.
But he is insisting on taking his time before deciding which option to take and which doctor to use.
Chaz revealed: "I'm not rushing it. There's a doctor in Belgrade who does excellent metoidioplasty - this is where a penis is created using clitoral tissue grown from testosterone.
"You're going to have a smaller penis but it's completely sensate and functional on its own. There's a long recovery period, which I imagine won't be pleasant.
"But at this point, I don't feel any less male for not having a penis. It's important, but it's not the be-all and end-all."

Cher is reportedly going to marry a former Hells Angel biker.
The 66-year-old singer-and-actress is set to tie the knot with Tim Medvetz, 42, this autumn with the couple planning on having a quickie ceremony at a wedding chapel in Las Vegas.
The nuptials will be the culmination of a road trip the pair intend to take across the US which will end in the gambling capital.
A friend of Cher's told the National Enquirer: "Cher and Tim plan to hop on the back of a chopper this fall and take off on a road trip that will end at a Vegas wedding chapel."
Cher and Tim - who recently scaled Mount Everest for a second time - were previously in a relationship a few years ago and came close to getting wed in 2008 but her busy career stopped their plans.
After the romance ended, the 'Burlesque' star was convinced she wouldn't marry again, but her transgender son Chaz, 43, and other son Elijah Blue, 36, urged her to rekindle the relationship with Tim, and she took the advice and has never been happier.
The source added: "This is Cher's last chance at love, and she has her sons Chaz and Elijah Blue to thank.
"Chaz sat Cher down and said, 'Mom, get a life! Go back to Tim!'
"The two met up secretly and they picked up right where they left off. Now Cher is beaming, and Tim told a pal, 'I thought climbing Everest was the ultimate call of the wild, but I think marrying Cher will top that!' "
Cher has been married twice before. Her first husband was the late Sonny Bono - Chaz's father - who she wed in 1963 and divorced in 1975.
She then walked down the aisle with blues musician Gregg Allman - who is Elijah Blue's dad - later that same year but they separated after two years before finalizing their divorce in 1979.
Cher has also been in relationships with Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Warren Beatty, Eric Clapton and Richie Sambora.
Cher is making a musical of her life.
The 66-year-old singer revealed the production will be staged in New York's Broadway and feature three versions of herself at different stages of her career.
One actress will portray the singer before she met Sonny Bono; another after the pair split in 1975, leading up to and through her 'Believe' tour in 1999 and a third will play a "wise" present-day version.
Cher tweeted: "Prod r trying 2 write musical now about my life with my music. Its very Interesting idea. There r 3 Chers! 1 b4 i met Son thru S&C yrs. 1 after i left thru Believe tour & 1 Now (sic).
"I could b old Cher! Shes wise n tells 2 young 1's not 2 fear future (sic)"
The three Chers will interact and perform with one another in the show.
The 'If I Could Turn Back Time' singer added: "They all 3 talk 2 each other &Sing 2gether! Its musical w/ my music (sic)"
Cher is planning to be involved in the script so she can unveil some secrets about her life.
She tweeted: "i was there & know stories that no1 knows but me ! I hope it happens!
"[It will be on] Broadway! Its VERY SLOW PROCESS! been working on it quite a while now (sic)"
In 2010, film director Andy Fickman revealed he was exploring the possibility of making a Cher musical.
He said: "We'll be making announcements about that project coming together shortly. She's a fairly phenomenal character, Cher - as a human being I think she's one of the great icons of all time, a force to be reckoned with."
