Reality show “I am Cait” debuted on E! on Sunday, July 26. During the pilot episode, Caitlyn Jenner revealed her new identity to her loved ones, including her mother. What was her mother’s reaction regarding the enormous transformation?

According to TIME, Esther Jenner was the most emotional among the family members after her son’s first personal introduction as a woman.

On the show, Caitlyn, together with her parents, talked about the struggles of being a transgender. Her mother claimed that Cait “never confided” with her while facing her hardships being a gay.

But despite the difficulties, her mother wholeheartedly accepted their newly transformed daughter.

“I loved him with all my heart, and I certainly love her with all my heart,” she exclaimed.

Aside from her parents, Caitlyn’s relatives and loved ones were also present on the first episode.

In a report from USA Today, some of the highlights of the show included meeting her daughter, Kylie Jenner.

The source noted that this was the first time that the father and daughter saw each other after the tremendous change. Kylie went to her house as a surprise and Caitlyn was candidly shot wearing a “fluffy white robe”. The two shared the sweetest hug later.

Aside from that, Kim’s husband Kanye West gave props to his step father-in law.

“This is one of the strongest things that have happened in our existence as human beings,” he expressed.

Caitlyn also paid tribute to Kyler Prescott, who is a 14-year-old transgender who committed suicide. She visited her relatives, paid respect and extended friendship to Prescott’s Family.
