Ahead of Bruce Jenner’s bombshell interview with Diane Sawyer Friday night in which the Olympian-turned-reality star revealed “I am a woman,” the doting dad gathered all of his children in a room and braced them for what he was about to tell the world.

While Khloe “had the toughest time with it,” Jenner says that “Kim has been, by far, the most accepting and easiest to talk to about it.”

After the interview aired, Kim posted to her 30.6 million Instagram followers:

“Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter”


“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”
