Bruce Jenner's Mom Speaks Out About Decision to Transition: 'I've Never Been More Proud'

Bruce Jenner‘s mom Esther, who has appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is speaking out about her son’s transition.

“I just learned about [his transition]. Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it,” she told Radar about the 65-year-old Olympian’s decision.

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

She continued, “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.”

This isn’t the first time Esther has spoken to the press about Bruce‘s life – she previously slammed his ex Kris Jenner in an explosive interview.
