Brody Jenner Bruce Jenner

Caitlyn Jenner’s son Brody has revealed that his relationship with his father has improved significantly since her sex reassignment surgery. In a new interview with E! News, he said that she’s been more fun to be around.

“I've known Bruce for a long time and I didn't really get along with Bruce,” said Brody, who is Caitlyn's son with Linda Thompson. “Caitlyn and I get along a little more, because Caitlyn is actually who she really is and she's living her life finally now as the person she actually was.”

Caitlyn has freely admitted that she felt that her relationship with her four eldest children deteriorated ever since she married Kris Jenner in 1991. However, they divorced earlier this year before Caitlyn’s transition operation in May, and it seems that it’s paved the way for a reconstruction in relations with his other children.
