It’s been over a year since Olympian Bruce Jenner transitioned into a woman and became the stunning Caitlyn Jenner.
Jenner’s family has been incredibly supportive, but in a new interview with Vogue, the publication’s covergirl, Kendall Jenner, admitted that it’s a little “sad” when she sees old photos of her father.
“Sometimes I look at a picture of my dad when she was a guy, and it makes me a little sad,” the model said in the September issue of the fashion mag. “I get emotional. You have to get past it — you’ve got a new person to love.”
She also explained that things were hard at first because she didn’t want to lose the dad who taught her tomboy ways. “We had ATVs and go-carts, and I grew up riding them all the time, which is why I’m a good driver,” Kendall told Vogue. “It’s super ironic to think about now, but it’s something I can thank my dad for: how much of a tomboy I was.”
She added, “That’s why I think the whole thing — her transition — was really hard for me, because I was like, ‘But you taught me everything tomboy!'”
The 20-year-old, however, explained she is now used to the change. “I knew it was going to have its rough phase, but it’s all super normal now,” she said. “It’s not weird at all.”
Jenner’s latest Vogue cover was her first ever and in celebration of the major accomplishment, her famous family produced a great video in honor of the young Jenner.
