Caitlyn Jenner opens up about her life on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories tonight on ITV.
TV personality and Olympic gold-medal winning decathlete Caitlyn Jenner spoke candidly to Piers Morgan about her extraordinary life for Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.
Caitlyn, who began life as Bruce Jenner, spoke openly about her struggle with gender identity, how she considered suicide and her transition to become the woman she is today.
She opened up about being on a reality TV show, living with the Kardashian family, and her feud with her ex-wife and stepchildren.
Caitlyn also spoke about her three marriages and whether she would date now.
Speaking about being transgender, Caitlyn who is Piers Morgan’s first ever transgender guest said: “Actually Piers we have a lot to talk about because I think you represent a lot of people out there who don’t understand this issue and exactly what it is.”
“It is a terribly complicated issue, I didn’t even understand it for many, many years.”
Piers asked whether Caitlyn considered herself to be entirely a woman, she replied: “Well pretty much biologically I am. My journey to womanhood is different. It took me a long time to get here. Caitlyn has always been around in my life but she always lived inside.”
Asked whether it was a huge relief to have transitioned, Caitlyn said: “Huge. My life is so simple now, it’s just a joke, honestly. It does take me a little longer to get ready in the morning.”
On finding love
Speaking about romance and dating, Caitlyn said: “No, dating is… my life is very busy and I’ve had three marriages. I have 10 children, I’ve got 12 or 13 of the grandchildren.”
When Piers asked whether she wanted to find love again as a woman, she said: “No I don’t think I would ever … I just don’t see it. I don’t see it in my future.”
Caitlyn also dispelled rumours that she was dating transgender woman Sophia Hutchins. She said: “Sophia Hutchins? No we are not dating, we are friends. I can have friends can’t I? Of course I can, thank you.”
Ending the interview, Piers said he had learnt a lot, adding: “The one thing I would say in conclusion is Bruce Jenner was a hell of a guy, and Caitlyn Jenner you’re a hell of a woman!”
Caitlyn Jenner on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories airs tonight at 9PM on ITV.
