Bruce Jenner’s Mom Proudly Supports Sex Change
Wow. Bruce is definitely lucky to have such a supportive mother, especially at her age!
“I just learned about [his transition],” Bruce’s mom told Radar Online in her first interview about his decision. “Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it.”
Esther also shared that she is proud of Bruce for his decision and his bravery, and hopes everyone can respect it the way she does.
“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,” she said.”
What an incredible mom Esther is!
Esther Didn’t Know About Bruce’s Struggle
Bruce’s mom is the first person in his family to confirm that he has decided to transition to being a woman after months of speculation and rumors.
During her interview, Esther also explained that she was unaware of Bruce’s “inner struggle” until just recently.
But, despite his lifetime of living with this secret, Esther says she will “support him whole-heartedly.”
“I just love him like I always have,” she said.”
