Kim Kardashian and Family Share Loving Words of Support for Bruce Jenner
As Bruce Jenner’s emotional 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer aired last night, all of his children (and two of his ex-wives) voiced their support for their hero, their father, as he revealed he is transitioning to a woman.
Here’s what they said.
Brody Jenner, 31, posted to Instagram “You won another gold tonight. I stand with you on this journey. I love you Dad”:
Kim Kardashian, 34, wrote on Instagram “Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter” and “It might not always be easy but we support you no matter what! Your honesty has opened the doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life! #respect #hero #family”:
His third ex-wife Kris Jenner, 59, wrote on Twitter:
Rob Kardashian, 28, wrote on Twitter:
Khloé Kardashian, 30, posted on Instagram and wrote on Twitter:
Kylie Jenner, 17, posted on Twitter:
Kendall Jenner, 19, posted on Twitter:
Kourtney Kardashian, 36, posted on Twitter:
Brandon Jenner, 33, posted to Instagram “Proud son.”
His wife Leah, 32, posted to Instagram “Proud to call you family.”
Jenner’s second ex-wife, Linda Thompson (and mother of his children Brandon and Brody), 64, wrote on Instagram “Once a champion of Olympian magnitude…now a champion for those who share the struggle to just be who they are.”
She also penned a piece entitled “How Living With and Loving Bruce Jenner Changed My Life Forever” for the Huffington Post, detailing her beautiful history with Bruce. Thompson comments, “
Now, many years into his remarkable life, he has spoken out. His legacy will likely be sprinkled with references like “Olympian,” “decathlon gold medalist,” “world’s greatest athlete,” “son,” “brother,” “husband,” “father,” “grandfather,” “friend,” and, hopefully, “pioneer” and “trailblazer for the civil rights of the transgender community.”
So as much as this is about Bruce, it’s not all about him. The sharing of my experience is meant to enlighten and inform — to lend a modicum of comfort and support for all those disenfranchised, struggling, discriminated-against, searching souls.
Bruce’s story and his struggle are uniquely his; my experiences with Bruce are commensurately uniquely my own.
She ends her essay in the words of Henry James, saying “the three most important things in life are: Be kind. Be kind. Be kind.”
Bruce’s oldest children Brandon, Brody, Burt and Casey also appeared in his 20/20 interview last night, and Jenner confessed he was “terrified” to tell his children but that he’s “not going anywhere” in the clips below:
