Over the last year or so, we’ve watched Bruce Jenner’s outward expression go through some gradual changes.
In recent weeks, it’s been all-but-revealed that Bruce Jenner is on a ‘journey’ and that his journey will be documented in the form of a reality show.
Now, according to PEOPLE, it’s confirmed that Bruce IS transitioning and plans to live his life as female.
Keep in mind that no one can confirm Bruce’s identity but Bruce — however, our job here at lovebscott.com is to keep you up to date with celebrity news & entertainment. With that being said, here’s what’s going on:
“Bruce is transitioning to a woman,” says a source close to the family. “He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.”
And according to a different Jenner insider, the 65-year-old reality star is filming his momentous journey, to be shared with viewers on a docu-series this year. “It will air when he is ready to be open about his transition,” the source tells PEOPLE. “But he’s acting more and more confident and seems very happy.”
The magazine reports that he decided to make his transition slowly over time so that his family had time to adjust.
“He’s being very smart about and also respectful about his transition,” the insider says. “Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes have been subtle, and his family has had the chance to slowly get used to his new looks and life.”
And his family, including children Cassandra, 34, Burt, 36 (with ex wife Chrystie Crownover ) and sons Brandon, 33 and Brody, 31 (with ex wife Linda Thompson), as well as daughters Kendall, 19 and Kylie, 17 (with Kris Jenner) are adjusting to the new Bruce. “The [kids’] concern seems to be Bruce’s happiness, and he acts very pleased with his new life,” says the insider.
Admits the family source: “It is an intense thing. Of course not everyone is 100 percent on board. Different people have different reactions. But everybody loves him.”
Kim Kardashian dropped the first hint as to what’s really going on with bruce on ET — and if you know the Kardashians, you know that was VERY intentional.
“The family is really giving this space and time to Bruce. This is his story and they want him to tell the world the way he wants,” the source close to the family says. “They really want to empower him to tell his story so that hopefully he can help other people too. That’s the goal.”
Now it appears that Jenner, finally happy in his own skin, will soon be ready to live life out in the open. “He has come out to those closest to him,” says the family source. “He’s so happy and excited. He gets to lay down a huge bag of bricks. He’s been through a dark period and is coming out on the other side.”
Congrats Bruce! Live your life!
