The world is still talking about Bruce Jenner’s candid “20/20” interview in which, after much speculation, he finally confirmed rumors that he is a transgender woman. During the interview, Jenner also opened up about his family’s reaction to his transition and explained that his stepdaughter, Kim Kardashian, has been “by far the most accepting” of his kids. Now, Kim is finally opening up and explaining in her own words how she feels about his transition.

While chatting with host Matt Lauer of “TODAY,” Kim explained that she’s happy that her stepdad is finally sharing his truth with the world.

“Bruce is the most honest … just … he has the biggest heart and I’m really happy for him that he is 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. And I don’t that’s something that you or I can fully understand, but I don’t think we have to,” Kim said. “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.”

However, Kim did admit that accepting Jenner’s transition hasn’t been easy for the family.

“I think there is still an adjustment and there’s family therapy and we’re really close,” Kim said. “I see reports that this one doesn’t support it and this one’s over here and my mom feels this way and it’s all really so made up. We all really support him. Is it a hard adjustment? Yes.”

She added, “I love having so many siblings and such a supportive mom because, you know, each family member might be dealing with this in a different way. But we have each other to go through this experience with. And I’m really grateful for that.”

We’re happy that Jenner has such a supportive daughter and family through this public transition and we hope the Kardashian and Jenner families inspire others to embrace the transgender community.
