According to eonline.com, Kim (34) said in an exclusive interview with NBC's Today yesterday: "I'm really happy for him that he is living his 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."
She added: "I don't know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren't yourself. I know it's not something that you or I could really fully understand, but I don't even think we have to. 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 per cent."
Kim clarified that her family is completely behind him. "I think there is still an adjustment and there is family therapy. 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."
Apparently, Jenner said he should still be referred to by 'he' and 'him' until the transition is done. Kim admitted that Jenner's sex change desire evoked a lot of discussions within the family. "There were lots of family meetings. We still have them. Say what you want about us, we work out everything as a family, we have the best communication, and we are so in sync with each other," she remarked.
It can be recalled that the 65-year-old 1976 Olympics decathlon gold medal-winner went on record to say that he wants to have Kim's sister Khloe's 'natural' body when he is done with the sex change.
