"I married Robert when I was 22 years old and I had gotten pregnant on my honeymoon," she said. "I had the happiest life you could've dreamt about. But when you're in something, sometimes people think the grass is always greener and that was, like, what I think I went through at some point."

As for her affair, Jenner admitted "[It's] nothing I'm proud of." "When I look back on it now, probably one of my biggest regrets in my life is that that marriage fell apart," she said. See more in the video below.
