Bruce Jenner is to have full gender reassignment.
The 65-year-old reality star has revealed to family members he will undergo full surgery to become a woman and he plans to do so in the near future.
When asked by stepdaughter Kim Kardashian West, 34, if he is dedicated to becoming a full woman in the first part of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce’, which aired on Sunday night (17.05.15), he said: “Yes”.
Then when her sister Kourtney Kardashian, 36, asked when he will do it, he told her: “Probably this spring.”
Meanwhile, Kim enquires as to whether he has already “made the appointment” and he confirmed: “Yes”.
Kourtney, in another scene, asked the same question, saying: “Are you planning on not being Bruce any time soon?”
To which he responded: “That’s quite possible, yeah.”
Kourtney then told Bruce that he needed to make his children – Kylie Jenner, 17, Kendall Jenner, 19, Brody Jenner, 31, Casey Jenner, 34, Brandon Jenner, 33, and Burt Jenner, 36 – aware what he plans to do.
He said: “I’ve talked to all my kids and told you what I was going through. I thought it was pretty much understood.”
Kourtney then asked half-sister Kendall if she understood and she shrugged: “No. I didn’t know that, you didn’t make that clear.”
Kourtney admits the family knew Bruce was a “cross dresser” in the past but they were never told he was going to “fully transition and become a woman”.
While both Bruce and Kourtney are in tears, she admitted: “I don’t care, I support you I’ve always supported you. But I don’t think it’s fair that you don’t tell us … close is in the near future, we are still your kids.”
