Playing Caitlyn Jenner Says Ex Kris Brought Her 'Back to Life,' Calls Kids Her 'Greatest Accomplishment' in Touching H&M Campaign

Caitlyn Jenner is opening up about her extraordinary life.

The 66-year-old I Am Cait star stars in a new campaign for H&M, in which she shares a timeline of the biggest moments she's lived through. Although Caitlyn has had her fair share of drama with her ex, Kris Jenner, since transitioning, she has plenty of kind words for the 60-year-old momager in the almost 6-minute video.

"In the '80s, I was really down in the dumps. I didn't know which way my life was going at that point," Caitlyn recalls. "Set up on a blind date by a friend, she [Kris] had a great sense of style, of class, and I give a lot of credit to Kris for kind of bringing me back to life."

"It was a very busy house and quite a ride, but I loved it, and that's what I did," she adds about living in the Kardashian-Jenner household.

Caitlyn calls her six children -- Burt, Brandon, Casey, Brody, Kendall, and Kylie -- her greatest accomplishment, far surpassing her 1976 Olympic gold medal.

"The greatest thing in my life I've ever done -- barring the Games, barring anything -- is children," she stresses. "I have never been more proud as you can be as a dad, to see what they've been able to do with their lives. My kids, by far, are my greatest accomplishment -- better than a medal."

After struggling with gender issues her entire life, the reality star has no regrets after introducing herself to the world as Caitlyn through her stunning Vanity Fair interview last June.

"To be honest with you, the media threw old Bruce right out the door, he was gone, OK?" she says about the reaction to the now famous cover. "This Caitlyn character's a lot more interesting! And I knew from that point on, I had to live my life as Caitlyn."

"That's the biggest victory of all, to wake up in the morning and just be yourself," she adds.

And Caitlyn's family just keeps growing. Caitlyn welcomed her "first Jenner" grandson, Bodhi, earlier this month, the first child of her son Burt Jenner, and his girlfriend, Valerie Pitalo. Watch the video below to see her cuddling with her grandson in their first adorable picture together!
