“When my dad came out as transgender, our relationship grew,” Kendall, 24, told People. “She could finally be honest with me. We could talk about deep emotions she was feeling through that time. Growing up my dad was not usually one to talk about her feelings so that was a big step for us.”

The top model told the publication she’s been a “daddy’s girl my whole life” and now, “our relationship grows every day.”

“I used to watch old Olympic videos of my dad and wish I could be a part of those spectacular moments with her,” she said.

She continued: “There are so many stories she tells about her life and I love to just sit there and listen. She has lived so many amazing lives in one lifetime. My favorite thing to learn from my dad is about my dad. Inspiring then and inspiring now.”

Watching her dad step out publicly five years ago, to cover Vanity Fair as Caitlyn for the first time, gave Kendall more confidence, she says.

“Because of my dad’s bravery, I’ve learned to love what I love and not be ashamed of it,” she told People.

She added: “She’s been my role model since before I can even remember, from sports growing up to now with her wisdom. She’s so brave and I aspire to be as brave as her one day.”

Her youngest sister Kylie, 22, also found inspiration in her dad’s coming out.

“My dad has always been an inspiration to me, from winning the gold medal at the Olympics to getting her pilot’s license,” the cosmetics mogul says. “However, watching her live out her true self has been the most inspiring of them all.”

The sisters agree, “She’s our hero.”

Caitlyn revealed that she told her children one by one of her plans to transition over five years ago.

“Honestly, if one of them had had a problem, I wouldn’t have done it,” Caitlyn, 70, told People in this week’s issue.

Caitlyn says that leaving her life as Bruce behind was emotional.

She explained that when she picked up her new driver’s license in July 2015, “it was so emotional.”

“There I was. Caitlyn Marie Jenner. But then, I wondered, did Bruce deserve to be thrown away like this? He did a lot of good things. He raised 10 kids. But I wasn’t turning around.”

Caitlyn has six children, Kendall and Kylie from her marriage to Kris Jenner. She has son Burt and daughter Casey from her first marriage, to Chrystie Scott. Sons Brandon and Brody came from his marriage to actress Linda Thompson.
