Brandon Jenner is ‘super proud’ of Caitlyn: ‘I believe that all the colors that we are born with are natural’

Caitlyn Jenner may be a controversial figure because of her conservative politics but I hope the backlash doesn’t negatively impact her very talented and sensitive son Brandon Jenner.

Brandon made an excellent impression during last year’s Diane Sawyer interview with his father.

He’s a musician whose new album, Burning Ground, came out earlier this month.

Brandon is a new father and was asked by how he and his wife, Leah, are going to talk to daughter Eva about Caitlyn’s transition one day.

Here’s what he had to say:

‘I’m super, super proud of Caitlyn, and I know that she will be one day, too. At this age, she knows Caitlyn as “Boom Boom.” When she sees Caitlyn, she goes, “Boom Boom!” and jumps up and gives her a big hug and a kiss. Eva sees Boom Boom as a family member. It makes me very happy, but it feels very natural.

‘My dad, Caitlyn, is in a much better place now. I feel like I’m really able to connect with this person. For most of my life, I think there was always something missing a little bit; we were not spending a lot of time together, and when we did spend time, maybe not getting to know exactly who the person was. I feel like Caitlyn is very fulfilled, I’m very fulfilled in the relationship, and Eva is just stoked to have another grandparent. That’s really it — that’s as simple as it is.

‘As it should be! I believe that all the colors that we are born with are natural. There’s nothing unnatural about every color of individual out there, whether it’s orientation, identity, sexuality, whatever it is, these are all natural occurrences. If we embrace it as such, then all the rest of the stuff fits together perfectly because it is natural. And the relationship that Eva and my dad have and the relationship that Caitlyn and I have is awesome and better than it’s ever been.’
