So. Many. Tears.
So much mascara ran on About Bruce, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians special about Bruce Jenner‘s gender transition, it was like an inky black river of tears.
But they did, and one of the most genuinely moving moments in the special was all the amateur footage of the Jenner/Kardashian family before the females of the family became tabloid fodder and evidence of an impending apocalypse.
There’s footage of the wedding of Kris and Bruce with mini Kim, Khloe and Kourtney in little white dresses.
Family pool days. Trips to the seaside. The births of two new little reality starlets, Kendall and Kylie.
By all appearances, theirs was a happy family life and Bruce Jenner was a doting dad to both his step-children and his natural kids. No-one disputes what a great father Bruce has been.
Here are our five most touching moments from About Bruce.
1. Kendall & Kylie admit they thought Bruce was hiding an affair.
Bruce Jenner’s two youngest kids, Kylie and Kendall, thought their father was having an affair when they were younger, but were too afraid to say anything.
“I remember being a kid and not knowing what was going on. We’d find things like make-up or lipstick and we thought he was having an affair at one point, and we didn’t know what to do. We didn’t want our family to break up so we didn’t tell anybody,” said Kendall.
2. Khloe ends up on Team Bruce.
Khloe Kardashian confronted her stepdad, asking him, “Is Bruce going to be gone within the next four to five months?” to which he replied in the affirmative. This was news to all the family and the pair had an argument that was eventually resolved.
“Sometimes because of my love for you and my feelings for you, I don’t want to hurt you and so I apologize for not being as honest as I should be,” Jenner told her.
