All eyes were on the Kardashian-Jenner family this weekend, as Bruce Jenner openly discussed his gender transition in public for the first time.
The former Olympian appeared on a two-hour interview special with Diane Sawyer, during which he discussed a side of his life long hidden from the media, and from his family.
"For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” he told Sawyer. “My brain is much more female than it is male. That’s what my soul is. Bruce lives a lie. ‘She’ is not a lie. I can’t do it anymore.”
Bruce's children and stepchildren, as well has his ex wife Kris Jenner, all spoke out in loving support for the reality star over the weekend, but one post in particular over the weekend really made us well up.
19-year-old Kendall Jenner shared this sweet image in Instagram, taken from a school worksheet she had filled out as a child. The fill-in-the-blank exercise includes the line, "If I could be anybody in the world, I would be ______" to which a young Kendall had responded, "My dad."
The Chanel model posted the picture with the message, "I wrote this in 5th grade… nothing has changed."
Although Kendall is clearly in support of her father, she was the victim of false reporting last month when Us Weekly alleged she had spoken openly about Bruce's transition to one of their reporters. "I will always love my dad, whether he's a man or a woman," she was quoted as saying.
Hours after the story was published, Kendall lashed out at the magazine on Twitter, saying she had never spoken to an Us Weekly reporter about Bruce. The magazine later apologised and acknowledged the quotes were false.
Shame on US Weekly for making up quotes. I NEVER said those things. I never spoke to them.

We're glad to see Kendall expressing her views on her father's transition in her own way and in her own time.
