Kris Jennner is more shocked than anyone at ex-husband Bruce Jenner. The father of Kendall and Kylie Jenner came out as a woman today in Vanity Fair magazine and is infinitely more attractive and feminine than her. In fact, he/she could pass for Kendall’s mother, they look so much alike.
Jenner today also revealed her new name, Caitlyn, and used only female pronouns to describe herself. From this point on, she said, he will only be a woman.
For his cover shoot, Bruce, 65, obviously got a lot help from Photoshop and photographer Annie Leibovitz. But a video accompanying the release shows him unadorned.
He looks remarkably feminine compared to the his more Butch looking ex-wife and mother of two of his children. A source told IM that Kris was floored by the photo, and doesn’t know how to react.
Bruce is photographed in gowns and a sexy body suit, which exposed the results of recent breast enhancement surgery.
No word yet on how Bruce’s children are taking the transition, now that it’s really happening. Bruce has four other children. Son Burton and daughter Cassandra are from his marriage to Chrystie Scott from 1972 to 1981.
Jenner and his second wife, actress Linda Thompson also have two children, Brandon and Sam, who is known by his middle name, Brody.
His transition to a woman has been a long time coming. After months and months of rumors, he appeared in April on the ABC news program “20/20” to give his first interview with Diane Sawyer. It was the highest rated show in news program history with more than 20 million viewers.
Her transition will be the subject of an eight-part documentary series starting next month.
Kris and her children, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are said to have accepted Bruce in her new gender identity. Caitlyn plans to have surgery later to transform fully into a woman with a vagina.
IM’s source is batting 1.000 so far on the transition. IM was the first to report that Bruce would have full gender reassignment surgery. IM also exclusively shot down a tabloid report that claimed he would use the name Belinda or Brigitte.
Now our source says, Kris is taking the reveal the hardest, since she knew Caitlyn as a man intimately. She’s described as being emotionally conflicted and feeling some resentment that Caitlyn might become a rival for the affections of Kendall and Kylie.
Caitlyn’s resemblance to Kendall is uncanny, although it makes sense, since she/he was her father.
The reality TV star is wasting no time moving forward with her new identity She has already created a Twitter account under her new name.
She launched the account with the following statement. “I’m so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can’t wait for you to get to know her/me.”
The transition is even more remarkable because Caitlyn as Bruce was a Olympic gold medalist in the 1970s in one of the most difficult contests in the games–the Decathlon. The event involves 10 different competitions requires superior strength skill and stamina.
But even back then, Caitlyn said she still identified as a woman.
