When Olympic gold medalist and a father of six, Bruce Jenner, transitioned into a woman, all eyes were on him. Known not only for his professional achievements but also as the former husband of Kris Jenner and part of the show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Bruce, now Caitlyn, has spent a lifetime battling gender dysphoria before finally coming out as a woman at the age of 65.
Besides having kids on her own, Caitlyn has also been the stepfather of Kris’ children, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob.

However, after transitioning, it looked like her relationship with her stepchildren sort of broke down and they are not into contact any longer. Speaking about it, she told Grazia: “I don’t talk about that side of the family, I spent 23 years of my life with those kids – it’s difficult to talk about it, terribly terribly sad.
“I’ve lost all relationship with them, yes, I don’t talk to any of them anymore.”

Recently, 71-year-old Caitlyn has turned to politics and announced earlier this year that she will be running for governor of California against Governor Gavin Newsom.
“Californians want better and deserve better from their governor. For too long, career politicians have overpromised and underdelivered. We need a leader with a vision and the resolve to see it through,” the reality star shared on Twitter in April.
“This will be a campaign of solutions, providing a roadmap back to prosperity to turn this state around and finally clean up the damage Newsom has done to this state.”

In case she’s elected, she will be the first transgender governor in the country. At the same time, Caitlyn slammed President Biden’s work so far and said she will support Donald Trump in case he runs for the presidential elections in 2024.
In an interview with Fox News’ ‘Justice with Judge Jeanie,’ Caitlyn expressed her support for former POTUS Donald Trump.
“If I was governor of the state of California… obviously, I would support him,” she said. “Yes, I still would support Trump. I do not like what’s happening in this country right now.”

This support comes despite the fact that the republicans took a critical stance regarding the LGBTQ issues. Caitlyn herself has done a lot for the rights of the transgender people, especially the children. She, however, is against transgender girls competing in sports. “I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls’ sports in school. It just isn’t fair. And we have to protect girls’ sports in our schools.”
Caitlyn says that what she liked about Donald Trump is that he was a disruptor. “He came in and shook the system up, OK? A lot of people didn’t like that in Washington, D.C., but he came in and shook the system up,” she said.
