Caitlyn Jenner recently celebrated the fifth year of her transition, just in time for Pride Month, and has no regrets: “When I wake up in the morning, I’m happy with myself.”

Before there was Caitlyn Jenner, there was Bruce Jenner -- an Olympic gold medalist, television personality, and proud father to ten famous children.

Bruce made a name in both the sports and entertainment industry as he succeeded to fame. However, at the age of 65, the reality star made a life-changing decision that turned out to be among his best ones.

CAITLYN HAS NO REGRETS

Bruce decided to become Caitlyn Jenner after spending a life with gender dysphoria, which she battled by striving for success.

In 2014, she divorced Kris Jenner and became the star of tabloids and media outlets. When her driver’s license came in July 2015, it hit her; she was no longer Bruce but Caitlyn Marie Jenner.

The twins were born on February 18, 2020, joining their older sister, Eva James, who Brandon had with his ex-wife, Leah James.

“Did Bruce deserve to be thrown away like this?” Caitlyn thought. “He did a lot of good things. He raised ten kids. But I wasn’t turning around.”

Caitlyn has been quietly helping the LGBTQ community by giving scholarships to transgender college students and focusing her foundation on transgender youth. She said:

“This is my journey. Yes, it is different than other trans people. But the bottom line is this: When I wake up in the morning, I’m happy with myself.”

JOURNEY TO BECOMING A WOMAN

While the world may have only known of Caitlyn’s choice to become a woman in 2015, she had planned her transition since age 39.

The former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star started taking hormones to enlarge her breast but stopped transitioning when she met Kris and grew scared of what the world may think.

Years later, Caitlyn decided to continue her transition and proceeded with a facial-feminization surgery and involved face contouring and hairline correction.

After having a breast augmentation, nose job, beard removal, tracheal shave, and jaw reshaping, Caitlyn completed her transition with gender reassignment surgery.

CAITLYN BECOMES A GRANDMOTHER AGAIN

Recently, Caitlyn became a grandmother yet again after her son, Brandon Jenner, welcomed twin boys with his wife, Cayley Stoker.

The twins were born on February 18, 2020, joining their older sister, Eva James, who Brandon had with his ex-wife, Leah James.

Brandon is the brother of Brody Jenner and the half brother of Kylie and Kendall Kenner. He is also the stepbrother of the Kardashian sisters, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe.
