Kanye and Other Family Members React to Bruce Jenner’s ‘Journey’

When reality star Bruce Jenner finally revealed his reported transgender plans to his children and stepchildren, the reactions were mostly calm and supportive.

As the cover of People magazine's latest issue, a family insider told People.com, "Bruce told them everything – where things stood, what his plans were for the future, and what everyone could expect. Everyone basically knew what was up, but it was still a shock to hear it outlined so explicitly." 

Jenner's six children, and his ex-wife Kris' kids Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian, “all came all around pretty quickly, but each of them had to process it in their own way. All they want is for him to be happy." 
Support also came from Kardashians’ significant others. Kim’s husband Kanye West was “totally fine with it,” said the source. “He believes in live and let live, and he took it all in stride. He and Kim are just trying to show Bruce love and acceptance – complete acceptance." 
Kourtney’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, however, reportedly wasn’t as receptive as first and "didn't react very well,” but now seems to be “on board” with Bruce’s decision.
The former Olympian’s 88-year-old mother, Esther Jenner, told RadarOnline.com, “I just learned about [his transition]. Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it. 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, “I support him wholeheartedly. I just love him like I always have.”
Bruce, 65, who has yet to speak publicly about his journey, will reportedly sit down with Diane Sawyer for a tell-all interview. He is also supposedly filming a docu-series about his transformation.
