She's speaking out!
Kim Kardashian West finally broke her silence on stepdad Bruce Jenner's transition on Today on Monday, and it sounds like she really is in his corner.
"There is every emotion you could possibly imagine. There is [sic] hundreds of family meetings, we still have them. Say what you want about us, but we work out everything as a family, we have the best communication and we are so in sync with each other. I love having so many siblings and such a supportive mom because each family member might be dealing with this in a different way but we have each other to go through this experience with, and I'm really grateful for that," she told host Matt Lauer.
As for the Olympian's decision to become a woman, the reality star explains that it's a highly personal decision that took some time to fully comprehend. "He's living his life the way he wants to live it. And that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness - that's what life is about. I don't know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren't yourself. And I know it's not something that you or I can really fully understand, but I don't even think we have to. I think as long as he is happy and he wants to live his life however he wants to live it - that just makes me happy and I support him 100 per cent," she confessed.
The whole family has even sought advice on how to respectfully deal with Bruce's gender reassignment.
"We have been talking to people from the GLAAD organization and just different organizations on... [for instance] what do we call him? Do we say him or her? How do we be respectful? There's so many things that you just want to be supportive and just want to be respectful and I think that everything takes time. Bruce wants us to feel as comfortable as possible and take everything at our own pace and we love him for that and we respect him for that. You know, until that transition is done we've learned that you do refer to him as him. But Bruce has always been really really good at explaining everything to us - even though it's really new and these have been newer feelings. Not newer feelings for him, not newer feelings for him, but newer feelings for us to digest. He's done a really good job of walking us through it," she revealed.
It sounds like Kimmy K has really embraced this new perspective!

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Malibu on Sunday, and it was quite the picturesque affair! The actress, who was previously married to Paul McDonald, wore a long white gown, and her dutiful groom carried her down the mountain as they posed for photos.
The hunky actor confirmed the happy news on Twitter, writing: "Most beautiful morning ever...," he tweeted. His Vampire Diaries co-star Kat Graham recently gushed about the couple and revealed they are meant for each other. "I haven't met two people that were more of soul mates than those guys. They are so absolutely amazing. Everyone loves them, and I really can't imagine him with anyone else," she previously commented.
The pair enjoyed a whirlwind six month courtship before becoming engaged in January. Congrats to the newlyweds!

Angelina Jolie had son Maddox Jolie-Pitt as a travel partner from New York to LA yesterday after her presentation to the United Nations on Syrian refugees. The UNHCR special envoy criticized the UN Security Council for inaction in Syria's four-year conflict: "We cannot look at Syria and the evil that has arisen from the ashes of indecision and think this is not the lowest point in the world's inability to protect and defend the innocent."
It's certainly admirable for the six-time mom to travel to the middle east to see, first-hand, the suffering of the Syrian people -- because she's got her own large family to take care of and she manages to squeeze work in sometimes, too. While hubby Brad Pitt is in New Orleans filming The Big Short, Angie's in charge of the kids and she now has a teenager in the brood, as Maddox is 13 and showing plenty of signs of late adolescence. The teen sported T-shirt from the band Whitechapel -- a death metal group. He's also worn tees from the Misfits and Slipknot. Young rebel!
And look who also came along for the ride -- Angelina's brother James Haven -- you know, the one she made out with at the Oscars in 2000. Nice to see they're still close!

Kim Kardashian is at step-dad Bruce Jenner's house RIGHT NOW, X17online can report exclusively, just a day after his tell-all interview aired -- in which he aired his personal story of pain and his internal conflict with gender identity, with the entire world.
We spotted Kim in her new silver Rolls Royce, entering Bruce's Malibu mountaintop compound around 2:30pm PT Saturday and she's still inside -- visiting with Bruce as a woman for the FIRST TIME.
Bruce is recovered from breast implant surgery and seemed to imply that last night's interview would be the last time anyone would see him as a male. He plans to live his life, from here forward, as a woman. Which means Kim is sitting with her step-dad now, seeing him with breasts for the first time, seeing him with nail polish and makeup and his hair down and maybe in a dress -- all for the first time! It must be a lot to take in ...
Meanwhile, Kim sat down with the Today show's Matt Lauer last week in New York, for an interview set to air Monday -- and Mrs. West gave her insight on step-dad Bruce Jenner's transition to become a female ...
Kim told Matt the family "really supports him [Jenner]" in his journey but that "there is still an adjustment and there's family therapy." She said it's been a "difficult time for everyone."
Kim and the rest of the family have all posted messages on social media in support of Bruce. Kim, herself, posted: "Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter." In another post: "Your honesty has opened the doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life! #respect #hero #family"
Brother Rob Tweeted: "You have always been a role model to me and now more than ever, I look up to you. LOVE YOU!!"
Pretty much the only thing we didn't get from Diane Sawyer's interview of Bruce Jenner last night was his new female name, but otherwise, Brucie really delivered!
No one's focusing on the face he called the entire Kardashian Klan "fake," which we think is funny -- he said he's the only real thing to come out of the family's reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
And here's how real for former Olympic athlete got ... the top ten most important things he told Diane:
1. He's not gay.
2. He hasn't yet changed his male organs.
3. He's been secretly dressing as a female since he was a boy.
4. Kim caught him dressing up and didn't speak to him afterward; Kendall and Kylie saw their dad in drag when the girls' laptop was on "security mode."
5. He says he and Kris could still be together if she were more "understanding" of his situation.
6. He began cross-dressing in public in the 1980s.
7. He started taking female hormones five years ago, stopped, then re-started a year and a half ago.
8. He contemplated suicide after photos post-Adam's apple surgery surfaced.
9. He tells Diane he's not even sure how his own "story will end" but he thinks it'll be a happy ending.
10. This will be his last interview as a male.

It's the talk of the town!
Bruce Jenner's tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer airs tonight, and not only is he getting praise from numerous public figures, but his family has spoken out and revealed their plans to be with the former Olympian for his big moment.
"You'll see that he is strong. He is looking forward to the future. He knows this is a big interview, this is a big day for him. But he is really sentimental about his family and looking forward to what's ahead," Sawyer said during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.
Elton John knows how difficult it is to struggle with your sexuality in the public eye, and he admires Bruce for living his truth. "It's an incredibly brave thing to do, especially when you're older. I admire him for doing it and I support him 100 percent," the music man told Access Hollywood.
Even Kimmy K is coming around to the idea of her stepdad changing genders!
"We’re supportive of everyone, no matter what they are going through,” Kanye West’s wife said when asked about Jenner’s transition. “That’s what family is for. We're going to watch the special together as a family. That's pretty much all I'll say about that today. I'll let the special come out and speak for itself," she revealed to Variety.
Youngest daughter Kylie took a different approach to showing her support, and Instagrammed a throwback picture of her father in short shorts and a crop top with hashtags promoting the ABC special.
The only person that has yet to comment is ex-wife Kris Jenner! Shocker!
Angelina Jolie appeared at the United Nations Security Council meeting in New York City today to speak about the refugee crisis in Syria, and she had some very strong words for her colleagues.
"We cannot look at Syria, and the evil that has arisen from the ashes of indecision, and think this is not the lowest point in the world's inability to protect and defend the innocent," Jolie said at the meeting. "We are standing by in Syria."
Jolie added that the council must "work as one," and she urged members to visit Syrian refugees and see the crisis for themselves. Jolie has made 11 visits to Syrian refugee camps since the conflict began in 2011.
Jolie also discussed the crisis in the Mediterranean, where over 1,300 migrants fleeing Syria and other parts of the middle east have perished while trying to escape. "It is sickening to see thousands of refugees drowning on the doorstep of the world's wealthiest continent," she said. "No one risks the lives of their children in this way except out of utter desperation."
