Bruce Jenner and Bruce Jenner - ****File Photos** BRUCE JENNER: 'I AM A WOMAN' Retired Olympic champion BRUCE JENNER has confirmed long-running speculation suggesting he is transitioning from male to female, declaring, "I'm a woman". Kim Kardashian's stepfather went public with his gender identity crisis during a much-anticipated interview with U.S. newswoman Diane Sawyer, to whom he confided, "For all intents and purposes, I'm a woman." In Bruce Jenner - The Interview, which aired in America on Friday (24Apr15), he continued, "People look at me differently. They see you as this macho male, but my heart and my soul and everything that I do in life - it is part of me. That female side is part of me. That's who I am." The 65 year old, who has fathered six biological children, including model Kendall and her sister Kylie with his third ex-wife, Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner, admitted he first began feeling confused about his gender from as young as eight years old, secretly dressing up in his mother's and sister's clothes when they weren't home. Jenner confesses each of his wives, Chrystie Scott, Linda Thompson and Jenner, knew all about his penchant for cross-dressing, and he concedes his identity struggle has contributed to the breakdown of each union. He even started taking the female hormone estrogen for five years in the late 1980s, but he lost his nerve about fully transitioning into a woman because he didn't want to disappoint his children. The women in his life, including his older sister Pam, kept Jenner's news a secret for years, but he claims he can no longer hide his more feminine side because he is sick of living a lie. He explained, "I just can't pull the curtain any longer... Bruce lives a lie; 'she' is not a lie. I can't do it anymore... "If I die, which, I could be diagnosed next week with cancer - and boom you're gone. I would be so mad at myself that I didn't explore that side of me. You know? And I don't want that to happen."
