Kylie Jenner addresses ‘confusion’ over her referring to Caitlyn Jenner as ‘dad’
Caitlyn Jenner has said she is fine with her daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner still calling her “dad”, making clear: “I will be their father until the day I die.”
Speaking with her daughter, Caitlyn said: “I never thought… I was 65 years old before I came through this, I had to raise everybody else and I had such a life, and then finally it was my time to be me, and live my life.
“I didn’t think I could do it, and then I did it. You guys have been my best friends, my kids have been absolutely wonderful in all of this.”
Kylie Jenner addresses ‘confusion’ over why she calls Caitlyn ‘dad’
Kylie asked: “I wanted to ask you, sometimes people get really confused when Kendall and I still call you ‘dad’.
“I know we had a talk a few years ago and you were OK with us still calling you dad. How do you feel about that now?”
Caitlyn responded: “I feel it was one of the best decisions I made. Sometimes this community can be pretty tough, especially when it comes to pronouns, and everybody’s got an opinion.
“But I really felt from the beginning that I’ve got to do it my way that works for me, and everyone out there can do it their way that works for them.
“Some people would say, ‘You’re the mother’, but I’m not. I’m the dad, I’ve been the dad the whole way, I will be their father until the day they die or I die.
“So when you ask me that question, of course. You have, the whole time, you always say, ‘My dad, she…’, and that’s tough to change the pronouns right in the middle!
“You guys are so good at saying it, and every time I hear it, I go, ‘Yeah, my girls are just, like, on it!'”
Caitlyn Jenner is happy to be herself
Caitlyn Jenner continued: “You know what is so good? Just to be able to wake up in the morning and wake up all day.
“That’s tough to do for a lot of people, especially with family members, people don’t understand and all that stuff.
“I’m so fortunate that after how complicated it was to live my life, sneaking around, lying to people, everything just to survive, I don’t have any of that any more.”
Kylie added: “I want you to be able to be free and be yourself, you know? There’s just no other way anyone should live.”
