Cue the waterworks. Kendall Jenner wrote the sweetest tribute to Caitlyn Jenner on Father’s Day, calling the ‘I Am Cait’ star her ‘hero’ while acknowledging her transition. See Kendall’s touching message here.
Kendall Jenner, 19, has been incredibly supportive of Caitlyn Jenner, 65, becoming a woman — and her transition doesn’t make her any less of a father to the model. In Kendall’s heart, Caitlyn is the amazing person who raised her, and that’s exactly what she’s acknowledging on Father’s Day!
“My whole life this soul was my daddy and just because your appearance is different now doesn’t mean you were any less of a father to me my entire life,” Kendall wrote on Instagram. “Happy Father’s Day to the person who raised me, and taught me everything I know, my hero.” We’re tearing up, too! Kendall has been so supportive of Caitlyn from day one since she made her debut as a woman on the Vanity Fair cover. Clearly her love is unconditional. Man or woman, it’s not about Caitlyn’s gender to Kendall — it’s about the kind soul that raised her and shaped her into who she is today!
Kendall was the first one of the Kardashian/Jenner family to retweet Vanity Fair‘s tweet which debuted Caitlyn’s stunning cover. She also spoke out on Instagram, reposting VF‘s video and writing, “now that’s a cover” along with “be free now pretty bird.” So sweet!
Caitlyn Jenner’s Incredible Impact
Caitlyn is on a roll! The reality star has made a huge impact in a short amount of time. She’s been hanging out with her close transgender girlfriends and giving motivational speeches to transgender youth.
What’s also exciting is that she’s set to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPY Awards on July 15. With all of her accomplishments, and many more yet to come, it’s no wonder Kendall calls her a hero!
