Khloé Kardashian was the first of the reality family to congratulate Caitlyn Jenner on her public debut.

The 30-year-old reality star was the first of her family to share her joy at Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce, making her debut as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair. Within minutes of releasing the image of the 65-year-old, Khloé reposted it on Instagram.

“We were given this life because you were strong enough to live it! I couldn't be prouder!!! Caitlyn, You are beautiful!!!(sic)” she wrote alongside it.

Bruce finally revealed his female identity for the first time Monday by posing for a photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Soon after Khloé, big sister Kim, 34, also shared the image and sent her well wishes to her stepfather.

“Caitlyn Jenner for Vanity Fair Annie Leibovitz! How beautiful! Be happy, be proud, live life YOUR way! (sic)” she wrote on Twitter before asking everyone to follow the former Olympian on the social networking site.

Caitlyn’s eldest daughter from her third marriage as Bruce to Kris Jenner, Kendall, also commented on her dad’s debut as a woman.

“Now that's a cover” the 19-year-old model wrote, “be free now pretty bird (sic)”.

Within an hour of the cover coming out, Caitlyn joined Twitter and spoke of her joy at finally being able to express who she really is.

“ 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 (sic)” she wrote.

Ex-wife Kris, stepdaughter Kourtney, stepson Rob and daughter Kylie are yet to comment on her revelation.
