Kardashian Family Shows Support for Bruce Jenner During ‘ABC 20/20′ Interview
Although the Kardashian family was fairly quiet and didn't make many comments during Diane Sawyer's interview with Bruce Jenner on ABC 20/20, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian as well as Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner each shared their love and support for Bruce on social media.
Airing on Friday night (April 24), Bruce spoke with Diane about his decision to transition to a woman as well as his longtime struggle with gender identity. And as he spoke about this, his entire family made sure to be by his side in any way they can. Kris, who was Bruce's third wife, may have given no comment when Diane and ABC reached out to her for the interview. However, she made sure to tell everyone that she was proud of him.
Meanwhile Kim, who was the first Kardashian child Bruce told about being transgender, not only tweeted about her love for her step-dad but also shared some photos of the two together on Twitter.
In the interview, Bruce revealed that Kim later became the person he could really talk to about his transition after he admitted that her husband, Kanye West, helped her see that people have to be true to themselves in order to be happy.
"They were talking about it," Jenner said in the ABC interview, "and he says to Kim, 'Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the room, I have that. But I'm nothing if I can't be me. If I can't be true to myself, they don't mean anything.'"
During the interview, Bruce admitted that Khloe took his news the hardest and is still trying to deal with it. However she tweeted that she saw him as her hero and revealed that the family watched the interview together. Kourtney and Rob also shared their love, which you can see below.
And while the older children -- whether it be from the Kardashian or Jenner side who all appeared on Friday night's broadcast -- have voiced their full support, we only wonder how Bruce's two youngest feel about their dad's transition. Kendall also called her dad a hero, and even posted an photo on Instagram proving it.
But Kylie revealed that this is still something that she is dealing with. However despite her own feelings regarding her dad becoming a woman, she says it isn't about her but something much bigger.
No matter what people think of the Kardashian family and their reality TV series, there's one thing that will always be true about them -- they are a family that loves each other and will support one another no matter what.
