When Kim Kardashian opened up about her stepfather, Bruce Jenner’s, “journey” she said he’s “the happiest [she’s] ever seen him” — but how did the rest of his family react to the news he will soon be transitioning to a woman?
According to a source, the 65-year-old “told them everything — where things stood, what his plans were for the future, and what everyone could expect. Everyone basically knew what was up, but it was still a shock to hear it outlined.”

Of course, Bruce’s relatives responded to the news in various ways. Fortunately, they all had each other to lean on during the emotional time.
“They all came around pretty quickly, but each of them had to process it in their own way. All they want is for him to be happy,” the source explains.
“Kim went to Kris and asked her how she felt. They had a very long conversation about it. Once Kim was satisfied that Kris was emotionally okay, she was able to give Bruce her unconditional support.”

As ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashian’ fans know, you don’t have to be related by blood to be part of this extremely tight-knit family. So it’s not surprising that Bruce’s pseudo-sons-in-law Kanye West and Scott Disick were there when he came out.
The father-of-three initially “didn’t react very well,” but “is now on board,” the source explains, adding Kanye has offered nothing but compassion and unwavering support for Bruce.

“He is totally fine with it,” the source says of the rapper, 37. “He believes in live and let live, and he took it all in stride. He and Kim are just trying to show Bruce love and acceptance — complete acceptance.”
Since coming out to his family, the source tells ‘People’ Bruce “is finally happy.”
