After Bruce Jenner gave his first televised interview in which he stated that he has "always" dreamt of becoming a woman, the Kardashian-Jenner clan took to social media to show their support. One family member who tends to keep a low-profile, Rob Kardashian, made the rare move of following suit.

The 28-year-old reached out to his stepfather Bruce on Twitter, posting a heart-warming message that was made public to his 5.5million followers.

"You have always been a role model to me and now more than ever, I look up to you. LOVE YOU," wrote Rob.

Kim Kardashian's younger brother also retweeted messages from several celebrities, who all echoed his sentiments.

"Bruce Jenner is a beautiful, brave human being. Sending him lots of love. He's saving lives and opening minds tonight," wrote comedian Ellen DeGeneres.

Grammy Award-winner Sam Smith posted: "Absolutely flawed at how courageous and brave Bruce Jenner is. So inspiring and so powerful. Shame on anyone who dare judge x."

"I am a woman," stated Bruce Jenner in his tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer

Bruce confirmed that he is transgender in a tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday. The former Olympian, who was married to Kris Jenner for almost 25 years and has two other ex-wives, stated "I am a woman."

"My heart and my soul and everything I do in life, it is part of me, that female side is part of me," said Bruce, before referring to himself in the third person. "That's who I am. I was not genetically born that way but we identify as female."

The 65-year-old received an outpouring of love from his family, including his six biological children and his famous Kardashian stepchildren.
