Caitlyn Jenner reveals her children still call her 'dad' while her 20 grandchildren call her 'Boom Boom' to avoid confusion over gender
Jenner who has six children revealed she does not mind when her children call her 'dad' as she said she'd always be their father despite the transition.
'I'm a Celebrity' star Caitlyn Jenner revealed that her children still call her 'dad' despite her transition while her 20 grandkids call her 'Boom Boom' in order to avoid confusion when it comes to gender.
The reality TV star, 70, was formerly known as Bruce Jenner before she went through gender reassignment surgery. While on the show, 'I'm a Celebrity', she was asked how many grandchildren she has, Caitlyn responded saying, "20 in December".
She further added, "They’ve come up with Boom Boom. It kinda stuck, it was easy for them to say". Jenner who has six children also revealed that she does not mind when her children call her 'dad' as she said she'd always be their father despite the transition. "My kids all call me dad, Kendall asked me first and I said "dad", I’m your dad and I’ll always be your dad till the day I die," she shared.
"But what they’re really good at which shocks me all the time is when they’re talking about me, "My dad she…" and it’s tough to change the pronoun in the middle of it. Bruce raised them and Caitlyn is enjoying their life with them," she continued.
Jenner has 41-year-old Burt and 38-year-old Cassandra with his first wife Chrystie Jenner, Brandon, 38, and Brody, 36 with his second wife Linda Thompson, and daughters Kendall, 23, and Kylie, 22, with his third wife Kris Jenner.
Sophia Hutchins, Caitlyn Jenner's 23-year-old partner, recently revealed that it had not been easy watching the former Olympic athlete break down into tears while competing in the British reality show, 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.' As reported by The Daily Mail, Hutchins shared, "It hasn't been easy to watch at all. When there's someone across the globe you feel helpless to begin with. When you throw in these challenges and see her crying, it's been gut-wrenching".
