Earlier in the day, Kylie, 17, posted a vintage photo of her father.
After months of speculation over whether it would actually happen, E! announced Friday that it will air a docuseries in July that chronicles Bruce Jenner's transition from male to female.
Before Jenner's interview with Diane Sawyer had finished airing on the East Coast, E! announced that it will air an eight-part series about Jenner, 65, seeking out "his new normal."
Though she stayed quiet for years after catching him wearing a dress around the house, Kim Kardashian West has been the "most accepting" of Bruce Jenner's transition, the Olympian says.
Kardashian West, 34, came around after husband Kanye West told her a story that she later repeated to her stepdad, he told Diane Sawyer during 20/20 on Friday.
"He says to Kim, 'Look it, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful daughter in the world, and I have that," Jenner, 65, said of the rapper. " 'But I'm nothing if I can't be me. If I can't be true to myself, it doesn't mean anything."
Bruce Jenner's decision to discuss his transition on national TV has inspired one 14-year-old teen who's about to launch a series of her own.
Jazz Jennings, a transgender teen girl who will star with her family this summer on TLC's All That Jazz, posted words of support for Jenner, who told Diane Sawyer in a televised interview Friday that God gave him "the soul of a female."
As Bruce Jenner's much-anticipated interview with Diane Sawyer premiered Friday, GLAAD released a statement supporting the former Olympian.
"Today, millions of people learned that someone they know is transgender," said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. "By sharing this story, Bruce Jenner has shined a light on what it means to be transgender and live authentically in the face of unimaginable public scrutiny. Though Jenner's journey is one that is deeply personal, it is also one that will impact and inspire countless people around the world."
Bruce Jenner has officially told the world he has the soul of a woman – but when his secret first threatened to come out, he considered killing himself.
In Friday's 20/20 special with Diane Sawyer, Jenner, 65, said he was in a dark place after paparazzi caught him going to a plastic surgeon for a tracheal shave last year.
"That night, I thought, 'It's over.' I was in this walking up and down this hall back and forth all night long. Heart pounding," he told Sawyer. "I thought, 'Wouldn't the easiest thing to do right now is go in the other room, get a gun. Pain is over. Done. Go to a better place.'
Kim Kardashian gets personal about her brother, Rob Kardashian, in an interview with Today's Matt Lauer airing Monday.
Growing up in Tarrytown, New York, a young Bruce Jenner felt different.
Bruce Jenner addressed speculation that he chose to share his life-changing choice to transition from male to female with ABC's Diane Sawyer for publicity reasons during his sit-down interview with the host Friday evening.
"Yeah right," he told the ABC journalist. "Do you have any idea what I've been going through my whole life? And people think I’m doing this for publicity."
But because he has been in the spotlight and on reality TV for many years, the former Olympian understands fan skepticism.
