Happy birthday Caitlyn Jenner! The reality star turns 66 on Oct. 28 and will celebrate one of her most important and exciting years ever.
It has been an eventful year of change and transition for Caitlyn Jenner, 66. She’s celebrated many birthdays in her lifetime, but this will be her first in her new identity as a woman. While she’s been going through a tough time, helping her family deal with Lamar Odom‘s, 35, hospitalization, we hope that she’ll be able to have the great birthday celebration she deserves!
Even by Kardashian standards, Caitlyn has had a crazy year. Things kicked off when she announced her new name and gender on Apr. 24, explaining her transition to becoming a woman during an interview with Diane Sawyer, 69. In June, she debuted her new look on the cover of Vanity Fair, in what has since become one of the year’s most iconic images. She also starred in her own reality show I Am Cait which debuted on E! and has since become an outspoken advocate for the rights of transgender people. Caitlyn did more in six months than most people do in a lifetime!
Caitlyn has come into her own as a star, even outrunning the long shadow of popularity cast by her own daughters. This year several costume companies have told TMZ that the costume based on Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair cover — featuring her in a white corset — is “the most in-demand getup this season.” A rep for Wholesale Halloween Costumes even said they haven’t “seen a craze like this since Frozen last year. They’ve even been sold out of the “Call Me Caitlyn” costume since 1,000 units “flew off [the] shelves” in Aug. The world loves Caitlyn and we do to! Happy birthday Cait!
