During Bruce Jenner's highly-anticipated interview with Diane Sawyer, the former Olympian finally confirmed his long-rumored gender transition.

After discussing his own personal struggles with gender identity, he explained how various members of his family are adjusting to the fact that he will be transitioning into a woman.

Bruce revealed that Kim Kardashian once caught him wearing a dress and he tried to explain it to her back then, but they didn't speak about it for a long while after that. "I just thought it was one of those subjects that I couldn't talk about," Kim said when Bruce brought it up again.

Then, one day, Kim brought it up on her own, saying that Kanye West had really helped her understand it.

"They were talking about it," Bruce explains, "and he says to Kim, 'Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world...and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the room...I have that. But I'm nothing if I can't be me. If I can't be true to myself, they don't mean anything.'"

"From Kanye, yeah," Bruce chuckled. "And since then, Kimberly has by far been the most accepting and the easiest to talk to about it."

After the interview aired, Kim, along with many other family members shared an outpouring of love and support for Bruce on social media. And on Instagram, she shared the pic below (which was also shared on Twitter) with the touching caption, "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."
Editor's Note: Per Jenner's stated preference, Cambio will continue to refer to Bruce using male pronouns until he indicates otherwise.
