Tonight Bruce Jenner's long-awaited interview with Diane Sawyer aired, where the former Olympic star and Keeping Up With the Kardashians anchor spoke of his transition into a woman for the first time. There were a lot of highlights in the segment and one of them was Jenner's reveal that Kim Kardashian has been the most accepting of his children, thanks in part to Kanye West. According to Jenner, the rapper helped his wife embrace Jenner's journey by saying, "I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am; I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that; but I'm nothing if I can't be me, if I can't be true to myself." Watch Jenner recall the story above.
