Caitlyn Jenner hasn't particularly had it easy since she announced her transition from male to female. The former Olympian, and stepfather of the Kardashian clan, has had rifts between herself and her former wife and stepdaughters since she decided to transition and be who she really is. Formerly known as Bruce Jenner, Caitlyn has faced an uphill battle with her family, who she admits doesn't come around to see her very often. Khloe Kardashian, her stepdaughter whom she was once very close to, admittedly no longer sees her stepfather as regularly due to the fact that Caitlyn has had some choice words about her father, the late Robert Kardashian.

Still, Caitlyn persists in setting an example by being who she truly is and not letting anyone dull her shine.

The one thing she has always wanted to do

Caitlyn Jenner has admitted that she has had gender identity issues for many, many years. She stated in her recent memoir that she was actually confused about her gender long before she tied the knot to famous momager Kris Jenner, and stating that her marriage to her previous wife broke down due to these issues. Kris has denied this was the case, however Caitlyn sticks to her story.

Caitlyn asserted that she finally felt free in a recent Instagram post, in which she was pictured on the beach in a one piece bathing suit. The father of mega celebrities Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner said that at this moment in time, she finally felt like who she truly is, something she had been waiting a long while to feel.

She said she had always wanted to stroll on the beach in a woman's bathing suit, but has been unable to do so in the past.

Caitlyn gets candid about gender reassignment surgery

While gender reassignment surgery is typically something that is very personal for most transgender individuals, Caitlyn opened up about it in her most recent memoir.

She was able to undergo the surgery relatively quickly compared to many trans people, mostly due to her connections and wealth. However, she has stated in her memoir that while the reassignment surgery has given her a new lease on life in her golden years, it doesn't define who she is as a person in any way. Instead, she believes that what is in people's hearts define them.

Caitlyn may be a grandmother again, as the former Olympian's mega famous daughter, Kylie Jenner, is reportedly pregnant with her first baby with her rapper boyfriend, Travis Scott.
