Kanye West Has Some Words For Caitlyn Jenner

After many months of promo images, media hype and one killer ESPY Awards speech, the wait is over for Caitlyn Jenner’s docuseries, I Am Cait. Touted as ‘less Keeping Up With the Kardashians and more Sundance documentary,’ the show’s first episode made a big emotional splash this Sunday night.

Aside from being Cait’s introductory episode to the world, the premiere’s first moments focused on some more intimate introductions — to the members of Cait’s family.

Like a debutante making her first appearances in society, Caitlyn reveals her most truthful self to some of the people she cares about most: her mother Esther and sisters Pam and Lisa, Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and of course Kimmy’s husband Kanye West.

While each introduction has its own set of emotional hurdles, perhaps the most surprising introduction was to Mr. West.

“Kanye and I have never really been very close,” Caitlyn admits, “But I love his open mindedness. And I love how he’s helped Kim come to grips with what’s going on.”

Kanye greets Caitlyn with an ear-to-ear smile, a look that we’re not used to seeing very often, and didn’t wait too long before throwing in some adoration for the transgender celebrity.

“This is one of the strongest things that have happened in our existence as human beings,” says the rapper. “You couldn’t have been up against more,” referring to Caitlyn and her family’s high celebrity status.

Caitlyn graciously accepts the compliment.

“This is just the beginning,” Kim adds before the focus moves on to her second pregnancy.
