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.

    Not buying it! I just don’t believe he is doing this.

  • Karolyn Lapka

    Agreed. Something is fishy and i don’t believe anything coming from the Kardashian/ Jenner people, including Burce’s Mom.

  • VanityInsecurity

    If this wasn’t true don’t you think he would have already released a statement saying it wasn’t true? For years ppl would say how he was the woman & Kris was the man.. now we realize why.

  • ann

    I do not believe it !!!!

  • Mouch

    Sounds like a great woman and mother!

  • Zoee

    Lets be Honest people this woman MOST be political correct , she MOST says so , how old could be his mom ?

  • Welly

    he is a augly looking women. Must parents have a hard time with this susation.

  • wizkhaleesi

    if she really supported the transition why would she still keep referring to Jenner as “him”

  • Dee

    I think it’s just a publicity stunt to promote their show, something shocking for a failing show. Either way, his daughter has enough ass foam for any plastic surgery he’ll need, but he still will never be a good looking woman. But then again, he doesn’t have much to start with!

  • autumn weathers

    $$$ not if he’s in on the scam $$$

  • R R

    When Bruce gets fed up with being a woman, he’ll want to be a French Poodle.

  • Nick MacIntosh

    Ok,,,,these people are creepy. Trannies can’t help being born with both parts and there is no problem with them picking their gender, however posing as a husband/father to turn into the Anthony Perkins alter ego Mother off of the movie Psycho is completely insane. These people will do anything for your buck,,,that’s right your buck morons who watch this crap and believe everything they see. Stop supporting this trash.

  • Ursula Shbib

    BS article

  • Joanne Allen

    He has always acted and looked very feminine, so what,t the big deal?He perhaps should have done it ages ago and then would not of had such a messed up family

  • Braden

    What’s to be proud of? The guy is obviously confused about who he really is. But instead of getting professional help that he really needs, he goes and gets a sex change. Stop enabling these people and put a stop to this nonsense.

  • Braden

    Bruce Jenner is a tranny because he chose to be a tranny.
