When Bruce Jenner was transitioning into Caitlyn earlier this year, he voiced concerns over how his daughters Kendall and Kylie would handle it. Kylie is totally fine and in fact, she likes Caitlyn more than Bruce.
In a new interview with Ellen (airing today), the 18-year-old reality star said she initially bottled up her feelings about her father’s transitioning. “I got through it and now I almost I like it a lot better, honestly. I like [Caitlyn] better than Bruce.” Kylie says that she and Cait can bond over girly stuff now like “makeup and clothes.” Fans of I Am Cait remember seeing Kylie give Caitlyn a weave in one of the first episodes.
Kylie knew that Bruce wanted to live as a woman years ago and she’s relieved the family secret is out. “I feel like there was always this big secret, and I’ve honestly known about it for a really long time and we actually caught him then dressing up as a girl, when [Kendall Jenner] and I were like six and seven maybe,” she says. “ So we’ve known for a while that there was something, but it was never talked about.”
Caitlyn may look different but to Kylie, she’s “the same exact person, she just looks different, I guess.”
