In April 2015, Jenner came out as transgender and she underwent gender confirmation surgery in January 2017. During a 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer in April 2017, she opened up about her journey.

She told Sawyer:

“I wasn’t less a woman the day before I had the surgery than the day after the surgery, because that did not define who I am as a human being.”

Before transitioning, Jenner was married to Kris Jenner, 63, for 22 years. The couple announced their separation in October 2013.

As Bruce, the television star and former triathlete had also starred on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” After their separation, Kris revealed that there was “no animosity” between them.

However, their relationship took a turn for the worse after Jenner released a memoir called “The Secrets of My Life.” The book which was said to be filled with lies also caused a rift between Jenner and his former stepdaughters, Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney Kardashian.

Jenner wasn’t the only celebrity who took part in the “10-Year Challenge.” Miley Cyrus joined in the challenge by posting a 2009 picture of herself with new husband Chris Hemsworth.

Coincidentally, that year was also the one when they met.
