Although the relationship between Caitlyn Jenner (70) and the Kardashians has cooled somewhat in recent years, Kylie Jenner (22) still has a strong bond with her father. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the cosmetics entrepreneur says she talks to Caitlyn every day.
“It was hard not to have contact for so long”
“My father was fantastic for us as children,” said Kylie. “Never missed a sports competition and brought us to school every day, a 45-minute drive.”
If Caitlyn recently participates in the reality show I’m A Celebrity .. Take Me Out Of Here, the 22-year-old misses her daily contact with her father. “I couldn’t talk to her for three or four weeks. I watched the clips online, but it was hard to keep in contact for so long. I think it was even harder for her because she couldn’t see us.”
Caitlyn has been known as Bruce until 2015. Although her six children have no problem with that transition, they all call the 70-year-old their father. In an interview, the reality star tells that the moment she announces that she will continue as Caitlyn, the children ask how they should address her. “I said, Dad. I’ll always be your dad,” said the former athlete. “I am your father until the day I die, so you don’t feel like calling me that.”
Caitlyn was married from 1991 to 2014 with Kris Jenner, the mother of Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian. He also has two children from two previous marriages.
Together they get Kylie and her older sister Kendall.
