What's the one question Bruce Jenner would ask Bruce Jenner?

That's what Diane Sawyer wanted to know when she sat down with Jenner for the first interview since reports surfaced that the reality star was considering a gender transition.

"If I were you, what question would you ask me?" the 65-year-old Olympic Gold medalist ponders during his highly anticipated 20/20 sit-down. What he comes up with is shockingly simple: "Are you going to be OK?"

Sawyer repeats the question to Jenner, who then answers, "Yeah. I hope I'm going to be OK. I feel like I'm going to be OK."

"2015 is going to be quite a ride. Quite a ride," he adds. 

Sawyer made the rounds on the ABC morning shows Friday ahead of the two-hour special, but she was cautious not to tell Jenner's story. She instead shared her own experiences in conducting the widely publicized interview.

"I think we can all agree that some stories should only be told by the person who lives them, and he wants to speak directly tonight, so I'm going to let him say first what he wants to say," she told George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America.

The acclaimed journalist was a bit more candid when speaking with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on Live!, revealing to the hosts that she'd never met Jenner until he opened the door for their interview.

Sawyer says the Keeping Up with the Kardashians patriarch is "strong" and "looking forward to the future." She also adds that he is very "sentimental" about his famous family and is excited about what lies ahead of him.

"I've got my health, I've got my children, I've got my family, I've got my seven grand kids right now," Jenner says in the clip Sawyer shared on Live!. "I'm actually really excited about what I can do -- to be able to do some real good in the world."

She also reveals that she spoke to Jenner's siblings and children, calling this a story of "family love."
