As reports that Bruce Jenner is transitioning into a woman increase, his mother allegedly addressed the former Olympian's decision.

According to Radar Online, Esther Jenner confirmed that Bruce is transitioning, telling the site, “I just learned about [his transition]. Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it.”

While other members of the family, like Kim Kardashian, support Bruce's choice, how does his mother feel?

“I have never been more proud of Bruce for who he is, himself as a father, as an Olympian, a wonderful public speaker," Esther reportedly said. "He instills enthusiasm in people. He’s gifted."

Esther continued, adding, "Right now I am more proud of him for what he’s allowing himself to do. I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect."

We completely agree with Esther. And in case there's any confusion on where she stands, she told Radar, "I support him whole-heartedly. I just love him like I always have."

Bruce will reportedly address his transition in the upcoming season of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians.'
