Bruce Jenner, ex-husband of Kris Jenner and step-dad of the famous Kardashian sisters, has been dogged for months with reports and rumors that he was transitioning into a woman. Intouch magazine even went ahead to make the cover above with sources telling them Bruce would come out any time soon. And now, the reality star seems to have done just that according to People Magazine;
"Bruce is transitioning to a woman," says a source close to the family. "He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he's doing. He's in such a great space. That's why it's the perfect time to do something like this."
And according to a different Jenner insider, the 65-year-old reality star is filming his momentous journey, to be shared with viewers on a docu-series this year. "It will air when he is ready to be open about his transition," the source tells PEOPLE. "But he's acting more and more confident and seems very happy."
Jenner's much-documented physical appearance (he's been photographed with longer hair, manicured nails and wearing makeup) has led to much speculation, but according to the insider, Jenner's decision to transition slowly was made in part so that his family would have time to adapt to the change.
"He's being very smart about and also respectful about his transition," the insider says. "Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes have been subtle, and his family has had the chance to slowly get used to his new looks and life."
The Olympic gold medallist is the father of 6 -Cassandra, 34, Burt, 36, Brandon, 33 and Brody, 31, Kendall, 19 and Kylie, 17. He was married to Kris Jenner for 23 years, and they share his two youngest daughters.

One thing that is heartwarming about this news is that his children are all behind him. Kim Kardashians is vocal about they all being 100% in support of whatever their father decides. Good luck to him!
