Kris Jenner Says She's 'Super Supportive' Of Bruce Jenner's Transition

While Kris Jenner usually likes to be front and center on most things, she's been uncharacteristically quiet after ex-husband Bruce Jenner came out as transgender.

"Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero," she tweeted after Bruce's "20/20" interview, though she declined to comment to ABC News, unlike the former Olympian's two other ex-wives (Jenner claims she wasn't contacted by ABC News, a claim that ABC has refuted.)

While Kris likely kept quiet in order to better promote the two-part special "Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce," the reality show matriarch is finally breaking her silence on her ex's transition.

"[The] family's doing great, and Bruce is doing great. And everybody's super supportive," Kris told Us Weekly at Kelly Rutherford's Children's Justice Campaign event in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

When asked how she was dealing with the situation herself, Kris told reporters, "Good. [I'm] really happy for him.”

The two-part special, airing May 17 and 18, focuses on Bruce's intimate conversations with his family about his transition. In a recent interview with E! News, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" executive producer Ryan Seacrest described the special as as "very compelling."

Note: Considering that Jenner has identified as, “for all intents and purposes, a woman,” but has not yet indicated that he would like to be known by a new name or female pronouns, this story uses male pronouns.
