Bruce Jenner is ‘the happiest’ Kim Kardashian has ever seen him. At least that’s what she said when chatting with ET on Monday. Bruce has been the subject of constant rumors that he’s transgender, as he has appeared in recent photos sporting nail polish and a noticeably flattened Adam’s apple.
“I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever the time is right,” Kim Kardashian told ET. “I feel like that’s his journey to talk about.”
It wasn’t too long ago that Bruce Jenner–or at least a superimposed head shot of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians patriarch–appeared on the cover of InTouch magazine, with the caption Bruce’s Story: My Life As a Woman. Many people–from Kris Jenner to LGBT activists–were angered by the cheap shot.
It wasn’t long after this that Kim Kardashian shared an Instagram post of the family rallying around their stepdad. She captioned the photo, ‘Family First.’
Kardashian was quick to point out that their support of Bruce was simply because they’re family, and didn’t serve any hidden agenda.
“Well we support Bruce no matter what, so we were just at his house hanging out and we wanted to take a picture, that was not like a secret message like, ‘We support Bruce,'” she clarified. “Of course we support Bruce 100 percent.”

Bruce Jenner is no doubt bolstered by the support of his family–whether he is or isn’t in the throes of a change in his sexual identity. He and Kris Jenner have only recently divorced, and it must do his heart good to know that both ‘her’ kids and ‘their’ kids still love and support him.
It’s good to hear that Bruce Jenner is his ‘happiest ever.’ And regardless of the reason behind that happiness, those closest to him are clearly sharing in his joy.
