After months of speculation, People has confirmed that Bruce Jenner is indeed making a major change in his life.
"Bruce is transitioning to a woman," source close to the family told the mag. "He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he's doing. He's in such a great space. That's why it's the perfect time to do something like this."
The 65-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians patriarch will also reportedly film his journey, which will be aired in a docu-series this year. "It will air when he is ready to be open about his transition," the source continued. "But, he's acting more and more confident and seems very happy.
That could be as soon as May, according to TMZ, which reported that Bruce made the decision to transition more than a year ago.
Over the last couple of months, Bruce has fueled speculation with his changing appearance. After getting a laryngeal shave to smooth out his Adam's apple, he went on to rock makeup, longer hair, bright red nails and a French manicure.
As for how his family feels about his transition, the insider told People, "The [kids'] concern seems to be Bruce's happiness, and he acts very pleased with his new life." While "not everyone is 100 percent on board...everybody loves him."
The former Olympian is reportedly transitioning "slowly" so his family has time to adapt to the changes. "He's being very smart about and also respectful about his transition," the insider continued. "Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes have been subtle, and his family has had the chance to slowly get used to his new looks and life."
The source added the family is giving Bruce a lot of space and time, and want to empower him to tell his story, in hopes that it will help others as well. The reality star is, "finally happy in his own skin," the source continued, and "will soon be ready to live life out in the open.
"He has come out to those closest to him," says the family source. "He's so happy and excited. He gets to lay down a huge bag of bricks. He's been through a dark period and is coming out on the other side."
