Bruce Jenner's First Wife Chrystie Scott on His 20/20 Interview: 'I Think It Was Cathartic for Him'

Bruce Jenner's first wife, Chrystie Scott, has revealed the moment he opened up to her about his gender identity – calling it a "shock."

Scott, the mother of Jenner's two oldest children, was the first person the Olympic champion confided in, he admitted in his 20/20 interview on Friday night.

In the interview, Jenner told Diane Sawyer, "For all intents and purposes, I am a woman." In the days following the interview, which drew nearly 17 million viewers to ABC, Jenner's famous family members have spoken candidly with the media regarding his transition.

On Monday, Scott – who was married to Jenner from 1972 to 1981 – opened up to George Stephanopoulos during Good Morning America's 7 a.m. hour: "I can't remember the exact words because it was such a shock to me, but he opened up his heart and confessed, and he had to share this deep, dark secret," Scott told Stephanopoulos about her ex-husband's confession from their first year of marriage.

"He told me he wanted to be a woman, and understandably, I didn't know what to say."
