Caitlyn Jenner says all her 10 children supported her transition: 'They were all very accepting'
Caitlyn Jenner revealed recently that she can still remember coming out to her family like it was yesterday. She spoke about how she revealed her transition to her 10 children and also spoke about how she would react if one of them were to come out to her.
In an interview with GIBLIB in honor of the Pride month, Jenner said, "I brought each one, I have 10 children, each one into my house one at a time, I didn’t want them to gang up on me,” she said. “I thought I’d do it one at a time. I thought I’d do it one at a time. We opened up this conversation with my kids. And it was great. They were all very accepting. And I moved on in my life."
Jenner who came out as transgender in 2015 shares son Burt and daughter Cassandra with ex-wife Chrystie Crownover, sons Brandon and Brody with ex-wife Linda Thompson and daughters Kendall and Kylie with ex-wife Kris Jenner.
Jenner also helped Kris raise her four children - Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian. Jenner's relationship with ex-wife Kris and the Kardashian clan was however strained initially. Jenner did keep in touch with Kendall and Kylie, however, parts of her memoir which was published in 2017 created a rift between the family. The family members seem to have moved forward and have begun to speak highly of each other again.
In fact, Khloe recently spoke about Jenner and said that she has no problem with her. Khloe said, "I saw Caitlyn recently, trying to think when, but yeah when I see Caitlyn it’s fine. I think we’ve really come a long way. It was a struggle for all of us … not because she was transitioning. I think from just how it was all handled. But I also think, when your emotions die down, you’re able to really look at everything and be like, ‘We’re all humans and we’re all trying to figure this out'.”
Speaking about how she would react if one of her children did come out to her, she said that she would have mixed feelings as a parent. "Somebody in an interview said, ‘Well, what if Kendall said she was trans and wanted to transition into a male?’ I went, ‘Ah, ah, ah!’ As a parent, I was like in shock. ‘Are you kidding me? My little Kendall, she’s the highest-paid model in the world. She’s gorgeous'. And it really kind of set me back, you know? And me, being in this position, I was like, shocked by my response.”
While she did confess that it would be tough to watch any of her kids confess, she said that she would support them. She said, "I would never stop her. I would do everything in, I’m her parent. I would never stop her from doing it. I would have long conversations with it. I think this is a tough road. But, yeah, I would probably, it would be really tough on me, yeah. Yeah, it would be tough. So I understand from a parent’s standpoint."
