Bruce Jenner has received an outpouring of support from friends, family and fans

Speaking in New York, the reality queen's pal also recalled when he began to suspect that the former Olympian had a secret. People were asking Jonathan what was happening with Bruce so he had a chat with Kim during a skiing trip with the Kardashians.

"I was like, I can't lie to my mom anymore 'cause it's weird. Pictures of Bruce with nail polish on. I just didn't know what to say."

Now, of course Kim's stepfather has told fans in an emotional interview that he is transgender.

While the journey has been difficult for his children, especially his youngest Kylie and Kendall and stepchildren, there have also been some funny and touching moments. For example, it's been revealed that Bruce does his own pink pedicure and that he asked Kim to be his stylist.
