Good news for Bruce Jenner: his mom Esther couldn't be more supportive of her son's reported transition to become a woman!
When reached by Radar about Bruce's big change, she had glowing praise for his brave choice. "Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it," Esther shares of how she found out. "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."
In fact, Bruce's mom says she's happier for him now than he won the Olympics, which is pretty amazing for a parent to say. "Right now I am more proud of him for what he's allowing himself to do. I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect."
We couldn't agree more with his mom's sentiments...it takes tons of courage to open up about a personal life change especially as a public figure, and we're so happy his mother is fully supportive.
You go, Bruce!
