In an interview with Diane Sawyer (view here) a little while ago, Bruce Jenner, the former Olympian called "The world greatest athlete," finally revealed a secret that he has kept to himself for decades. He started the interview with this, “For all intents and purposes, I’m a woman,” he told Diane Sawyer during ABC News’ “20/20.” He continued, “People look at me differently. They see you as this macho male, but my heart and my soul and everything that I do in life -- it is part of me,” Jenner, 65, said. “That female side is part of me. That’s who I am.” Bruce talked about his battle with transgender identity. As he continued the interview, he referred to himself as "Bruce and her." He said, “I look at it this way—Bruce always telling a lie. He’s lived a lie his whole life about who he is. And I can’t do that any longer." My brain is much more female than it is male,” he added. “It’s hard for people to understand that, but that’s what my soul is.” Bruce revealed that the first time he knew he was different was when he wore his mother's dress and dresses from his sister's closet in 1950 saying, “I marked the closet so when I put it back I could put it all back, everything back in the exact same spot so I wouldn’t get caught and, at the time, I didn’t know why I was doing it besides it just made me feel good.” He also spoke about cross dressing as well in his adulthood. “I’d literally go up into the hotel room, change [into women’s] clothes, and walk around,” Jenner said. What many thought was a secret he kept to himself, as listed above, Jenner revealed that for decades, his 'ex-wives and sister kept the secret of his gender identity.' Jenner recently told his six biological children – Burt, Cassandra, Brandon, Brody, Kendall and Kylie -- and four step children Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian. When asked about his children reaction, Bruce said, “They all cried. Mainly because they didn’t want anybody to hurt dad. They are very protective of me.” The wait is over. Meet Caitlyn Jenner below.
