Caitlyn Jenner welcomes her sixth grandchild who will take her birth name
Caitlyn Jenner proudly announced to the world that she had become a grandparent once again with the birth of newborn baby boy William Behr Jenner
Congratulations to the six-time grandparent! Former 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Caitlyn Jenner proudly announced to the world that she has become a grandparent once again with the birth of newborn baby boy William Behr.
The baby was born to the Olympic gold medallist's son Burt, who he shares with ex-wife Chrystie Crownover, on February 9. In a touching move, Burt and his girlfriend, Valerie Pitalo, decided to name the child William after Caitlyn's birth name, William Bruce Jenner, since they share a close bond with her, reports Metro.
Caitlyn, who promptly posted a picture of the adorable newborn online, captioned her Instagram post writing: "Welcome to the world, William Behr Jenner. Congratulations @burtonjenner and @valeriepitalo !! Love you guys."
Burt, a 40-year-old Gladiator Tires driver, who has another son Bodhi with Valerie, has always been extremely supportive of his Olympic champion father and his transformation into Caitlyn. "I’m very excited [about Caitlyn’s gender affirmation]. Part of me was screaming to say, 'Hey, I’ve known for 25 years and I’ve always been supportive!' I always will be," he told Esquire in 2015.
Burt continued, "Before I was allowed to tell anybody, or before my dad even knew that I knew, I went and marched on behalf of Prop 8 through the streets of Los Angeles. I’ve always tried to be an outspoken supporter of the LGBT community."
The news of Caitlyn's new grandson comes shortly after the reality TV star made a shock appearance on Keith Lemon’s 'Through The Keyhole' and revealed that she auditioned for the role of 'Superman', but unfortunately lost out the part in the 1978 film to heartthrob Christopher Reeve.
"Right after the [1976 Olympic] Games, I was asked to go to Rome and do a screen test for the original 'Superman' [movie]," she said to Keith Lemon and her fellow panelists Craig Revel Horwood and Johnny Vegas in an exclusive clip from the show.
"I got the whole cape on, went back there, spent a week..." she continued. "I went to the ice crystal, had fights with Lex Luthor, did all that stuff. And then they found Christopher Reeve and he wound up doing it!"
