Kris and Caitlyn Jenner have been snapped in a photo together for the first time since Caitlyn transitioned, People is reporting.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, things have been rocky between Caitlyn and Bruce’s ex-wife, Kris, since their March 2015 divorce and Bruce’s subsequent transition into Caitlyn. Kris has been open about the fact that she’s struggled with Caitlyn’s transition.
Speaking to Vanity Fair in June, Kris opened up about the difficulties of being married to a man who secretly identified as a woman.
“Why would you want to be married and have kids if this is what you wanted since you were a little boy? Why would you not explain this all to me? He was married to me and he wasn’t who he wanted to be. All I was doing was working very hard for my family so that we could all have a wonderful future, and he was p****d off. At the end of my relationship with Bruce he definitely had a lot of social anxiety. That was one of the reasons we were in a struggle at the end.”
However, in a July interview via E! Online, Kris made it clear that she’s proud of Caitlyn.
“I think it’s amazing. I think that someone following their dream is truly inspirational to a lot of people. You have to do what makes you happy.”
For her part, Caitlyn spoke highly of her ex-wife, saying that Kris was always accepting of Caitlyn, even if that acceptance was difficult for her.
“You know, Kris is a really good woman and I love her to death. And the love and acceptance I have gotten from Kris is absolutely overwhelming.”
Despite their differences, however, family is family, and for 24 years Bruce/Caitlyn was a stepparent to Kris’ four kids — Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob — as well as a parent to the couple’s two children together, Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
So when Kylie had her 18th birthday party, of course both of her parents were going to be there. And it appears they set their differences aside, at least long enough to be photographed together for a selfie with Caitlyn’s stepdaughter, Kim Kardashian-West. Kim posted the pic on Instagram.
“The parent trap”
Reactions to the Kris, Caitlyn photo have been mixed, with many fans taking pot-shots at Caitlyn’s transition or about the Kardashian extended family’s fondness for the cameras. Others, however, have been positive.
“I think you look great ladies :) positive people lead a positive life – be happy!!”
Whether Kris and Caitlyn photo is a sign that the two have worked out their differences remains to be seen.
