Caitlyn Jenner is still worried about disappointing her kids, a new trailer for her reality series, I Am Cait, shows. Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, broke down while her mother and her friend were making a toast to her.
“I want them to be proud of their daddy,” Caitlyn says as she starts to cry. Jenner has 10 children, including children from previous marriages, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and her step-children, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob Kardashian.
Caitlyn may be worrying for nothing, since it seems that most of her kids support her recent gender transition.
Brody Jenner recently opened up about his feelings about Caitlyn on The Today Show.
“Well, growing up, I didn’t really have the greatest relationship with Bruce,” Brody explained. “I didn’t see him that often. And Caitlyn is just a much freer person. It’s incredible to see the difference between Caitlyn and Bruce.”
It’s a change that Brody seems happy about.
“Bruce and I kind of didn’t really get along. And Caitlyn? It’s literally like trying to get to know somebody — like your dad — over again. But in a better way.”
Caitlyn Jenner has also received lots of love from her most famous stepdaughter, Kim Kardashian, who has said that Caitlyn has taught her to be less judgmental.
“We all as a family prayed and hoped that people could understand it,” Kim said in a speech at the Commonwealth Club in California. “Unless you’re actually going through it, you’ll never one hundred percent understand it. Caitlyn is so grateful for all of that. The reason we wanted to share our family story over it during a two-hour special was to show that every family member will have a different opinion or reaction to something, and that’s okay. Everyone has a different emotional transition to find their own way to support it. Caitlyn has helped me learn to be less judgmental. Through it all, I saw it might be difficult for some people, but that’s still okay.”
Caitlyn’s children aren’t the only ones who are proud. Her mother, Esther Jenner, is also standing firmly in her corner.
“My first feeling was, ‘I lost my son.’ ” she says in the I Am Cait trailer. “Then I thought, ‘You know what? I’m gaining.’ ”
Since transitioning publicly, Caitlyn Jenner has become a role model within the transgender community and it’s a role that she’s embraced.
“Hang out with the people that love you and respect you,” she tells transgender youth in the trailer. “We’re all beautiful!”
You can learn more about Caitlyn Jenner and her transition when her docu-series, I Am Cait, premieres on Sunday, July 26, at 9 p.m. on the E! Network
