Brody Jenner says his father is “happier than ever” after transitioning into Caitlyn Jenner from his former identity of Bruce.

The 65-year-old reality star and Olympic athlete transitioned from her former male identity earlier this year.

And while Brody admits that embracing his parent’s change in life has been difficult, he is thrilled with Caitlyn’s new positive outlook.

"Dad is doing great. Happier than ever," Brody said during an interview with Access Hollywood on Friday.

"Bruce was harbouring a lot of secrets, and I think that now Caitlyn is a much happier person and a much freer person. Life really is so short and you have to live it the way you wanna live it, and not worry about acceptance. It's so short, and it’s a gift and you gotta embrace who you really are.

"I'm not going to say it's the easiest thing in the world. It hasn’t been the easiest thing in the world. But it's not about me. It really isn't. It's about Caitlyn and about her being free and being who she really is."

Revealing he alternates between calling Cailtyn ‘Dad’ or by her new feminine moniker, Brody insisted that Bruce’s transition isn’t considered to be “a big deal” by his family.

"The whole family is very supportive,” he said.

Brody was also asked about his comments regarding step-sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé, after he said how his father’s divorce from Kris Jenner had changed his relationships with his siblings.

"I said, 'Well, technically they're not my sisters anymore,' but I was just stating a fact," he said. "I grew up with them. I love my sisters, I still consider them my sisters."
