In 2015, the world came to an unexpected halt when Caitlyn Jenner, previously Bruce Jenner, publicly came out as a trans woman. For many, the Olympic champion’s transitioning was a shocking development and for Caitlyn Jenner’s children, it was even more confusing.

The transitioning, which also led to a split in Caitlyn Jenner’s family, was tough for the kids as they had trouble processing that their father was now, a woman!

But as best as she could, Caitlyn explained herself to them, helping them to accept the change and move on.

Caitlyn Jenner’s children still call her dad!

While the world sees Caitlyn Jenner for the woman she was meant to be, she recently revealed that despite the transition, her children still call her dad while her grandkids call her “Boom Boom.”

The 70-year-old reality TV star who appears in the current season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! shared the unique revelation last week on the show.

According to Caitlyn, gender titles have proven vert confusing to her family and for her 20 grandkids, she’s become known as “Boom Boom,” a name she confesses was easy for them to say.

Caitlyn Jenner has 6 kids from 3 consecutive marriages, with Kendall and Kylie Jenner being the most popular through the Keeping Up With The Kardashians show.

Kim Kardashian cried after seeing Caitlyn Jenner dressed as a woman

But long before she transitioned, Kim Kardashian West shared a secret with Caitlyn Jenner after she discovered her trying women’s clothing in the garage.

Speaking her truth on The Alec Baldwin Show, Kim shared that after the incident, she ran out crying hysterically since she was very confused about what she had seen.

Many years later, Kim got her closure as Caitlyn Jenner embraced her true gender identity and while many still have trouble with her transition, it’s true that she came a long way.

Transitioning is still a developing issue in our society and for brave women like Caitlyn, understanding goes a long way. Do you also have trouble referring to Caitlyn Jenner as a woman?
