Bruce Jenner’s mother has confirmed that the former Olympian is transitioning into a woman.
Esther Jenner, 88, says she has “never been more proud of Bruce.”
“I just learned about [his transition]. Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it,” she said, according to Daily Mail. “I have never been more proud of Bruce for who he is, himself as a father, as an Olympian, a wonderful public speaker. He instills enthusiasm in people. He’s gifted.”
“I support him whole-heartedly. I just love him like I always have,” Esther added.
His mother’s revelation comes just a day after it was revealed that Bruce, 65, would be opening up about his transition in an interview with Diane Sawyer. No word yet as to when that will air.
Bruce is also busy filming a new reality show that will detail his transition to womanhood. His family, which includes six biological children and four Kardashian step children, have reportedly been very supportive of his decision.
