Cailtyn Jenner Told Her Kids They Can Still Call Her ‘Dad’
Caitlyn Jenner is still letting her kids call her “Dad” for the time being.
When the E! special Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce aired last month, we got to see how Jenner’s children reacted to the transition news. While they were all accepting, they still had a bunch of questions.
One of those questions was how they should address Jenner, and now we’ve learned what she told them.
A family friend told People, “[Caitlyn] spoke to each of the kids separately and told them to take their time in getting used to this. She would prefer not to be called ‘Bruce,’ but told the kids that they could still call her ‘Dad,’ at least for now.”
The source went on to say, “Caitlyn has been really understanding that it doesn’t come naturally for anyone. No one expects this change to happen overnight. If one of the boys slips up, it’s not a big deal.”
A Kardashian family source told the magazine, “This is the new normal. They all still slip up and refer to Caitlyn as Bruce, or she as he, him, all that. It takes a lot of work to get it right. The whole family is correcting each other when they get it wrong. Not in a joking way, but just a reminder that, ‘Hey, everything’s changed, and we need to respect how she wants to be called.'”
