Though the exact spelling hasn’t been confirmed, we can understand if he wanted to fit in with the other ladies in his family — you know, Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall and Kylie!
The source says friends have already started using the new name, even though the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star has yet to go under the knife for gender reassignment surgery — despite conflicting reports suggesting otherwise.
Though his ex-wife, Heather Thompson, revealed that he once wanted to re-emerge in his sons Brandon and Brody’s lives as a woman named “Aunt Heather” — he has kept quiet on his new name, only self-identifying as “her.”
Even with a new moniker, “The World’s Greatest Athlete” insists he will still be the same person fans have come to know and love.
“I’m saying goodbye to people’s perception of me and who I am. But I’m not saying goodbye to me,” he told Diane Sawyer during the landmark interview last April.
“This has always been me.”
(Editor’s Note: Bruce Jenner has clarified that he prefers the media still use the familiar male pronouns, so we will respect his wishes until he indicates otherwise.)
