Kylie Jenner says she likes her new mother Caitlyn “more than Bruce”.

The 18-year-old reality TV star opened up about the transition of her biological father, Caitlyn Jenner, while speaking to Ellen DeGeneres.

She told the TV host that at first, it was hard to accept the transition of her parent.

Kylie Jenner said: “I feel like it was the only thing I bottled in… I got through it, and I like it a lot better.

“I like her better than Bruce! We talk about make-up, and clothes, and we bond a lot more, but not only that. I feel like there’s not a huge secret in the family.”

She added: “I’ve honestly known about it for a really long time – we actually caught then-him dressing up as a girl when my sister and I were 6 and 7. We’ve known for a while there was something, but it was never talked about.

“I’d be with my girlfriends, and he then would come in and say ‘what are you guys talking about?’ and joke around… and I knew there was something.

“I feel like now we hang out a lot more, there’s no secrets, she’s really living her authentic true self. I feel like that’s awesome.

“I want to be someone for my generation – I think that other girls and boys my age will see I’m so accepting and be accepting too.

“She’s the same exact person – she just looks different.”

Caitlyn Jenner recently confirmed she will still vote for Republican next year – even though most of the party’s Presidential hopefuls oppose transgender rights.
