Kim Kardashian appeared on Today this morning to discuss Bruce Jenner’s transition announcement in light of the Diane Sawyer interview Friday. Now that Bruce’s story has been shared on Bruce’s terms, the Kardashian-Jenner family is sharing theirs, and they present a united front of being proud of their dad.
“He has the biggest heart, and I’m really happy for him that he’s living his life the way he wants to live it and that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That’s what life is about. I don’t know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren’t yourself.”
Kim addressed the period of adjustment her family is experiencing, and how that compares to what the tabloids are saying. Of the tabloid rumors that any of her sisters or mother are unsupportive, she said that’s made up, that they all support Bruce completely. Their adjustment, she said, is one of attempting to be supportive in the right way. She and her family have been working with GLAAD to use the right pronouns and terms to be as respectful as possible (according to Kim, Bruce is comfortable with masculine pronouns until the transition is complete). “I think as long as he is happy and he wants to live his life however he wants to live it, that just makes me happy and I support him 100 percent,” she said.
That’s not to say there hasn’t been “hundreds of family meetings” as they navigate this previously uncharted territory. “Say what you want about us, but we work out everything as a family.” Read how Kim’s siblings and other celebrities responded after Friday’s interview.
Kim also addressed her fertility struggles. She and Kanye West have been trying to have a second baby for over a year and have sought help from experts, who’ve recommended she consider a surrogate.
“They have recommended to me to get a surrogate, and I would like to hold out a little bit longer, and still try,” she said. “I still have hope, so I’m just going to keep on trying. Never say never.”
