Putting an end to months of rumours about his sexuality and gender status, Bruce Jenner came out as a woman on Diane Sawyer's show "20/20", which was aired on 24 April. Fellow-celebrities including actors, athletes and reality stars have been pouring in love and support for the former US track and field athlete.

His famous family has also been showering Jenner with love and applauding his bravery. In fact Kim Kardashian has been the most supportive of all, thanks to hubby Kanye West. Apparently the rapper sat his wife down and told Kim, "Look, 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... But I'm nothing if I can't be me. If I can't be true to myself, it doesn't mean anything."

Following this heart-to-heart with her husband, Kim has whole-heartedly accepted Jenner's identity. She has since then posted two selfies with her step-father with the comments, "It might not always be easy but we support you no matter what! Your honesty has opened the doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life! ‪#‎respect ‪#‎hero ‪#‎family... Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. ‪#‎ProudDaughter".

Bruce further added during his Diane Sawyer interview that Kim has also been very enthusiastic about turning her step-father into a fashionista. "You're representing the family... You gotta look really good," Jenner says Kim told him.

Kim's mother and his wife for over two decades, Kris has also showed immense love for him. She tweeted, "Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero."

Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian also said, "Just finished watching the #BruceJennerInterview with the family. Bruzer, I'm soooo proud of you! Dads really are heros ❤️" and "Couldn't be a more proud daughter. With courage and bravery, let's change the world. I am honored to stand by Bruce's side and support him" respectively.

Kylie Jenner, Bruce's daughter with Kim tweeted, "Woke up still in awe... I've never been more proud of you, Dad!!!!!!" and her sister Kendall posted, "so very proud of you, my hero." She also posted a photo of a writing exercise form she filled in 5th grade, wherein she wrote that if she could be anybody she would be her dad. She captioned the touching photo by saying that nothing has changed for her.

Bruce's former son-in-law Lamar Odom, who married to Khloe is also very supportive and a very strong presence in his life, reports Design and Trend. "Lamar sees Bruce as a 'father figure' and respects all the advice and wisdom Bruce has given him over the years. He admires Bruce and he thinks that if it's his life's quest to be a woman, then by all means, he should do it. Lamar's incredibly supportive of Bruce and his transition. It takes a big man to live in his truth and Lamar thinks Bruce will be very happy with his new life," the website quoted a source as saying.

However, Bruce's other ex-son-in-law and Kim's husband before Kanye, Kris Humphries, made the headlines after tweeting this insensitive post: "Man, I'm glad I got out when I did. #Gottadoyou". Following media backlash Humphries has made a half-ass apology for the same. He posted, "I have and always will support Bruce hence #Gottadoyou. Now recognize I was too vague and sincerely apologize for the way this came across...#FullySupportBruce".

Bruce Jenner's journey and the story of how he came to terms with his chosen gender will be revealed in an untitled documentary series that will run for eight weeks starting 26 July on ABC.
