Kendall Jenner is still grappling with her father’s transition.
In case you missed it, the supermodel landed the cover of Vogue’s iconic September issue, and in the story accompanying her stunning photo spread, Kendall gets remarkably candid about Caitlyn Jenner. In the year since the former Olympian sent shock waves through pop culture with her monumental Vanity Fair cover, Kendall says she still experiences painful moments that take her back to her childhood.
“It’s super ironic to think about now, but it’s something I can thank my dad for: how much of a tomboy I was. That’s why I think the whole thing—her transition—was really hard for me, because I was like, ‘But you taught me everything tomboy!'” Kendall recounts.
And although the 20-year-old admits everything is “super normal” and “not weird at all” between her and Caitlyn, she admits, “Sometimes I look at a picture of my dad when she was a guy, and it makes me a little sad—I get emotional,” adding, “You have to get past it—you’ve got a new person to love. It’s kind of a blessing in disguise—if that’s not the wrong way to say it.”
