Caitlyn Jenner Joins Twitter-Upstages Kim Kardashian Pregnancy Announcement
Caitlyn Jenner has been busy. The morning after Kim Kardashian West announces that she is expecting husband Kayne West’s second child after a long struggle, Caitlyn Jenner announces her big reveal coming in the next issue of Vanity Fair. To add to the excitement she joined Twitter.
In her first Tweet she says:
“I’m so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can’t wait for you to get to know her/me.”
For a profile picture, Caitlyn is using the Vanity Fair cover, a gorgeous shot of her looking demurely at the camera while wearing a white corseted bodysuit. She looks positively radiant. In a teaser for the next Keeping Up With the Kardashians Kim tells the family that she has seen “Her” and that she’s beautiful. She wasn’t kidding.
If Kim feels Caitlyn upstaged her baby news she isn’t showing. She sent out her own Tweet urging her followers to follow Caitlyn and giving a shout out to the Vanity Fair cover. Along with the cover shot she wrote:
“Caitlyn Jenner for Vanity Fair Annie Leibovitz. How beautiful! Be happy, be proud, live life YOUR way!”
Caitlyn already has over 700,000 followers and has received support from many others in her family as well. Kylie sent out a hashtag in support on Instagram, while Kendall sent out a Tweet saying, “be free now pretty bird.”
Bruce Jenner’s transition to Caitlyn Jenner has been rumored for many months now with some tabloids mocking the transition. Jenner spoke with Diane Sawyer announcing the transition only referring to “Her” and not giving a name. His kids from his previous marriages spoke out offering support.
Next we saw the Kylie, Kendall, Khloe, Kourtney and Kim react to the news on a special Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce.” In a heartbreaking scene, Jenner talked about how hard it was to be honest after spending a lifetime covering up a secret of such great magnitude. The girls, generally supportive, feared the transition was happening too fast, even with Khloe on the latest episode saying she wanted to spend time with her step-father to get her last images before the transition.
While the family may have felt this was moving quickly, Caitlyn has waited her whole life to do this and has expressed how it cannot happen fast enough. Now we see the beautiful results in a fabulous shot by Annie Leibovitz and now Caitlyn Jenner joining Twitter. Caitlyn Jenner has made the world forget, at least temporarily, about Kim Kardashian West’s baby news though the family seems to be taking it in stride all offering messages of love and support.
