Bruce Jenner’s Transition to Woman Confirmed by His Mother

We’ve all heard the rumors and the reports, but no one has actually confirmed that Bruce Jenner is transitioning to a woman until now.

Bruce Jenner’s sex change has been confirmed by his mother, Esther Jenner, to Radar Online. After months of speculation and “sources” revealing that the former Olympic gold medal winner is becoming a woman.

“I just learned about [his transition] Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it.”

I imagine so.

She also confirmed that Bruce will be sharing his story on an E! documentary show. Esther said, “I have never been more proud of Bruce for who he is, himself as a father, as an Olympian, a wonderful public speaker. He instills enthusiasm in people. He’s gifted.”

This is all pretty fresh news to Esther as she “did not know of his” inner struggle until recently. But like a true mother, she’s proud of her son.

“Right now I am more proud of him for what he’s allowing himself to do. I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect.”

We reported earlier that Diane Sawyer is set to interview Bruce about his transition, and he seems to have the full support of his family in this journey.
