According to People, the reality star was met with less surprise than anticipated when he told his family about his plans to transition into a woman. Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and ex-wife Kris Jenner rallied behind the former Olympian quickly after he announced to his children that he is transgender.

“Bruce told them everything – where things stood, what his plans were for the future, and what everyone could expect,” a family insider told the publication. “Everyone basically knew what was up, but it was still a shock to hear it outlined so explicitly.”

“They all came all around pretty quickly, but each of them had to process it in their own way,” the source added. “All they want is for him to be happy.”

According to the insider, Kim made sure her mother Kris, who finalized her divorce from Bruce last December after 23 years of marriage, was okay with the news first before giving her attention to Bruce.

“Kim went to Kris and asked her how she felt. They had a very long conversation about it,” the source said. “Once Kim was satisfied that Kris was emotionally okay, she was able to give Bruce her unconditional support.”

As for the men of the famous TV clan, Kourtey Kardashian’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, reportedly “didn’t react very well” at first but “is now on board.” Meanwhile, West was said to have immediately embraced Bruce’s transition.

“He is totally fine with it,” the insider noted. “He believes in live and let live, and he took it all in stride. He and Kim are just trying to show Bruce love and acceptance — complete acceptance.”
