Kendall Jenner Reveals Mom Kris Knew About Caitlyn 'Since Their Third Date'

The model opened up in the latest issue of Vogue.

After much speculation, Kendall Jenner has been revealed as Vogue’s 2016 September cover girl.

The model/reality TV star/social media princess, who reportedly cut her hair for this issue, posed for photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

Inside the issue, the 20-year-old got candid about her life and opened up about her dad Caitlyn Jenner’s transition, revealing that she knew about it since she was a kid. However, she didn’t quite grasp exactly what was going on. 

“My whole life we would, like, catch her, and we would be like, What is going on here? I think we know, but do we?” she said. “At one point, Kylie and I thought he was cheating on my mom, because he had makeup and nail polish.”

The reality star went on to explain that her dad would “wake up earlier just so she could dress up and move around the house and get that little kick for the morning, and then go back to being Bruce.”

Kendall even admitted to running into her dad one morning when she had woken up to get a glass of water from the kitchen. 

“As I was coming back out, my dad was coming down the stairs in, like, a wig and makeup and shoes — the full nine,” she said. “And she didn’t see me. I literally froze. Please don’t turn left. Because she could either turn left or right. Thank God she turned right and — to this day! — has no idea that happened. That was the first time I had ever seen her.”

Her next admission ― one that may seem surprising ― came after a pause: “My mom knew. She knew since their third date,” she said. 

For Kendall, the experience of having her dad transition was “strange” but now, she explained, “It’s all supernormal” and “not weird at all.” 

She did admit, however, that she sometimes gets emotional when looking at photos of herself and her dad prior to Caitlyn’s transition, but added, “You have to get past it ― you’ve got a new person to love. It’s kind of a blessing in disguise — if that’s not the wrong way to say it.”
