Caitlyn Jenner is opening up about when she first wanted to transition. She recently revealed that she wanted to go through the process when she was 40 years old.

Caitlyn Jenner’s transition

For a long time, the former Olympian sort of stayed in the background as the major women in his life basked in the spotlight. However, all that changed back in 2015, when Jenner came out as a transgender.

Her transition into Caitlyn, grabbed the world's attention and curiosity. The reality star admitted she had a gender reassignment surgery. As part of her transition, Caitlyn also had breast augmentation and facial feminisation surgery.

Transition before 40

During a recent episode of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, Caitlyn opened up about her transition to become a woman.

The star revealed that she first wanted to transition more than thirty years ago. She said in a recent episode of the reality show with Daily Mail reporting:

I thought I was gonna transition before I was 40, I didn’t want to be an old chick but this is the latter '80s and I never felt like I fitted in anywhere, I was trying to figure myself out, running around town.

Jenner also admitted that before she went through the process, she would cross dress and drive around town. Caitlyn explained on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!:

I had a turbo Porsche and it was like the day before Halloween and this car pulled up beside me and it’s my next-door neighbour, I said I was going to a Halloween party.

Caitlyn went to talk about her daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, as well as the older Kardashian sisters, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney.

Meanwhile, a few years ago Caitlyn revealed that ex-wife, Kris Jenner knew about her true gender. In an interview, the 70-year-old said:

We hit it off from day one. I was very honest with her. I had to be, I was a 36B. The rules with Kris and I were, 'Don't dress up, certainly around the house. If you really need to do that, when you're on the road, take stuff and do that.

Following the transition, Caitlyn Jenner appears to be much happier than she used to be and living her best life.
