His daughter Kylie, 17, added: "Understandingly, this has been very hard for me. You will hear what I have to say when I'm ready to but this isn't about me. I'm so proud of you, Dad. You are so brave. My beautiful Hero."
Following the broadcast, Kylie tweeted: "Woke up still in awe... I've never been more proud of you, Dad!!!!!!"

KRIS APOLOGIZES. Meanwhile, Kris Humphries has apologized for a tweet he sent regarding Bruce's gender transition.

Subsequently, the basketball player, who was married to Kim Kardashian from 2011 until 2013, was subjected to a torrent of abuse from online users, many of whom accused him of being insensitive and ignorant.
However, Kris has since insisted that was never his intention and his original tweet was badly misinterpreted.
