Bruce Jenner’s Transition: He Told Family In Front Of ‘KUWTK’ Cameras
Bruce Jenner’s transition has been in the spotlight ever since the news of his desire to become a woman was made public. He has yet to give the official word on his transformation into a woman, but has been keeping busy filming his docu-series for the E! network.
Last month, PopCrunch told you of Jenner’s decision to change his gender. He has already sat down for an exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer, but will not reveal his new female name during the taped appearance. There has been online speculation stating that Bruce Jenner will be changing his name to Belinda Jenner, but that has yet to be substantiated.
Bruce has apparently broke the news to his family about transitioning into a woman in front of the cameras for Keeping Up With The Kardashians. On January 19th, the former Olympian told his entire family and his ex-wife Kris Jenner was said to be quite displeased with the new information. He told the family about his news on the same day that his step-daughter Khloe Kardashian shared a photo of their family on Instagram – as a sign of solidarity.
A source revealed, “He literally started the conversation with, ‘Hey guys, I’m becoming a woman, but I’m sure you probably already figured that out.”
During the conversation, he reportedly got emotional and told the Kardashian and Jenner ladies to simply say “BRuce is in a very good and happy place” if asked about him. The source said, “There was so much speculation, and they were all wondering about the truth. Bruce had to address it with them. He got a little emotional, but it wasn’t a jaw-dropping conversation, it’s a surprise to the girls that he’s doing this at 65.”
In addition, Bruce Jenner’s transition has caused the former Olympian to ask family members to address him by his new name instead of Bruce from now on.
