Caitlyn Jenner Reveals She’s Undergone Sex Reassignment Surgery
“The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated,” the 67-year-old writes in an excerpt obtained by Radar Online. In The Secrets of My Life, Jenner reveals she undergone the “final surgery” this January.
“I am telling you because I believe in candor,” she explains. “So all of you can stop staring. You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”
For Jenner, who had a breast augmentation and a 10-hour facial feminization surgery in 2015, she reportedly decided to go under the knife because she wanted to “have all the right parts.”
“So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis. It has no special gifts or use for me other than what I have said before, the ability to take a whiz in the woods,” the Olympian formerly known as Bruce Jenner shares. “I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time.”
“I am going to live authentically for the first time in my life,” she continues. “I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics, almost two thirds of my life.”
The Secrets of My Life will hit stores in the U.S. on April 25 and on April 27 in the U.K. You can also pre-order it from Amazon — below.
