Kim Kardashian Talks Bruce Jenner: "I Support Him 100 Percent"

Kim Kardashian West spoke out for the first time since her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, revealed he is transitioning to life as a woman, and the reality star makes it clear he has her full support.

Kardashian said that in finally going public, Jenner has found "inner peace and just pure happiness."

"I don't know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren't yourself," she told NBC "Today's" Matt Lauer in an exclusive interview Monday. "As long as he is happy, and he wants to live his life, however he wants to live it, that just makes me happy. And I support him 100 percent."

Jenner revealed that he is transitioning into a woman in a candid interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer that aired Friday.

During the sit-down Jenner told Sawyer how Kim Kardashian had become "by far the most supportive" of his kids, and that her understanding was encouraged by her husband Kanye West.

"Bruce has always been really, really good at explaining everything to us," Kardashian told Lauer. "And these have been newer feelings — not newer feelings for him, but for us to digest... He's done a really good job at walking us through it."

Kardashian added that "there is still an adjustment, and there's family therapy, and we're really close. I see reports that say this one doesn't support him, and this one's over here, and my mom feels this way, and it's all really so made up. We all really support him. Is it a hard adjustment? Yes."

Calling the adjustment a "daily process," Kardashian stressed how important family is at this time.

"I love having so many siblings and such a supportive mom because, you know, each family member might be dealing with this in a different way," she said. "But we have each other to go through this experience with. And I'm really grateful for that."

Above all, Kardashian says she is "really happy" Jenner is living life the way he wants to live it. "And that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about."
