Bruce Jenner's journey may have first "shocked" mom Esther Jenner, but in a recent interview she gave to the Associated Press, the matriarch says that she and her entire family has been supportive of Bruce's journey!

In the recent interview, Bruce also told Esther that this doesn't mean that the 65-year-old is suddenly a different person:

"He said, 'Mom, I'm still the same person.' He said, 'I'm still going to race cars, I'm still going to fly airplanes and I'm going to get my helicopter license.'"

Esther also opened up about the fact that Bruce's transition was a surprise to her but that she's "at peace" with his decision:

"When I first learned about it, yes, of course it was a surprise… The family is close and very supportive of Bruce and we're supportive of each other… It was a shock. It's hard to wrap your mind around it… He said, 'I want to be honest about my identity and I know this is coming out in the press.' He started by saying, 'We need to have a long, serious talk.' I am at peace with what he is and what he's doing."

Just like Esther, we wish Bruce nothing but the absolute best in his journey. This must take so much courage.
