Now, who doesn't know of Caitlyn Jenner?!The former Olympian champion has made quite the life for herself and, believe it or not, there's so much more to her than Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
As a child, Caitlyn always had a passion for sports and athletics...And this was her main drive throughout her entire education in New York and Connecticut.
Picking up on her talent, her college track coach encouraged her to train for the Olympic decathlon...
She went on to become one of the most beloved athletes of the '70s.
Following her Olympic success, she remained well and truly in the spotlight.This was maintained through a number of TV appearances and endorsements, Jenner remained in the public eye. From the late '70s to the early '00s, she worked on several tv series and appeared in a handful of TV movies.
But there's another thing Caitlyn is very well known for...
Caitlyn became a huge part of the hit reality show...She came into momager Kris' life after the death of her first husband, Robert Kardashian. She had 2 children with Kris (Kendall, and Kylie) and was hastily blended as a significant role model to all the Kardashian sisters.
But of course, we all know about the famous Caitlyn Jenner transformation.
via: GettyCaitlyn first announced she would be beginning her gender transition back in 2015 - and she even launched her own reality show titled I Am Cait, chronicling her journey throughout her transition.
2 years later, in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion, she went public on the cover of Vanity Fair.She underwent her final operation - the gender-reassignment surgery - in 2017.
And she couldn't be happier!Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: "I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap."
Caitlyn insists that she is a nicer person than ever now she has transitioned.
Yet, despite Cait being happier and more popular than ever...Kendall and Kylie. "My dad says it herself sometimes, it's kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is," Kendall said in a candid interview about Caitlyn's transition, "My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad - that's the last little piece of dad I've got."
Though Kendall insists that she'd known about Caitlyn's gender identity for years.
There has been a noticeable strain in Caitlyn's relationship with her daughters since her transition.And Kendall has remained loyal to her mom, Kris, during her parents' on-and-off feuds. "Kendall is loyal to Kris[Jenner] and has very little to do with her dad. The more time that has passed, the more she feels Caitlyn has let her down with the things she has said and with her actions," a source shared with E! News back in 2017.
However, it's been a few years since her transition now...
Cait prides herself on using her celebrity status to spread a positive message of tolerance.
She is passionate about paving the way for transgender children, and that's all that matters to her.
