Caitlyn Jenner is closer than ever with her family.
Her eldest son, Burt Jenner, was interviewed on Australia’s Today show, where he revealed that the two have bonded “more now than ever.” “Especially after the transition and everything, it’s been nice,” the race car driver revealed.
“Because I think he’s realized that family means a lot to him. Just like anybody else in life, all you got is family,” he added. “So, that’s brought us much closer.”
Caitlyn came out as transgender earlier this year and Burt, along with his siblings, have been supportive since the start -- even appearing in Diane Sawyer’s original special where, at the time, Bruce Jenner first revealed, “I am a woman.”
“There’s been some trade-offs, I’ll admit that,” Burt explained when asked if Caitlyn is a better person. “But she is a better person. Honesty is always the building block for any relationship, and at least we have that now.”
The Kardashians on the other hand, and especially their E! series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is another story completely.
“I plead the fifth!” Burt said with a laugh when the interviewer mentioned the reality show, saying it is “definitely” the complete opposite of his life. “I don’t really associate myself with it much. I don’t watch it. It’s just not part of my life.”
Speaking of Caitlyn, she recently made her red carpet debut. Check it out:
