Bruce Jenner has had a whirlwind past couple of years. He divorced his wife of over 20 years, Kris Jenner, relocated to a massive Malibu, California, mansion and celebrate his tenth season on his family’s hit reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

But when it was revealed this year that he had began his transition into a woman, the Olympian faced one the most buzzed about moments of his over 40 years in the spotlight.

His large family has been pretty strategic about commenting about the Olympian’s life and the details of his transition, but that hasn’t kept sources close to the Kardashian-Jenner crew from sharing how his children are reacting to the questions surrounding their father.

His stepdaughter Kim Kardashian voiced her support for Bruce ahead of his two-hour tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer on April 24, telling E! News that she would be watching the special with Bruce and the rest of the family. "We are going to watch the special together as a family with Bruce and that's pretty much all I will say about that today...I will let the special come out and speak for itself,” she said.

"As a family we always support everyone. I'm excited for everyone to see the special tonight...I'm going to rush out of here and meet up with Bruce and my mom and brothers and sisters and watch it tonight. Family first, no matter what,” she added.

According to a source speaking to RadarOnline.com, Bruce also has the support of his sons, Brody Jenner and Brandon Jenner. “Bruce has been wearing women’s clothes and lingerie at home almost full-time now, with sons Brandon and Brody visiting and not having any problem with their dad’s changing appearance,” the source said.

But according to reports, not everyone is cheering Bruce on, with a source speaking with RadarOnline.com revealing that Bruce’s stepdaughter Khloe Kardashian is actually siding with her mother Kris when it comes to her reported feud with her ex over his transition.

“Khloe has distanced herself from Bruce,” the source said. “When Bruce told Kris he was becoming a woman, it was kind of a slap in the face for her” the insider said. "And now she’s bonding with her mom."

And though his daughter, Kendall Jenner, has been extremely supportive of her father in the weeks leading up to his big interview -- going as far as to post a photo on Instagram of his massive billboard in Los Angeles, California -- his youngest child, Kylie Jenner, is reportedly still struggling with her father’s transition and hasn’t visited him.

“Kylie keeps promising to visit Bruce at his Malibu mansion, but she never shows,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “And most of the time, Kylie doesn’t even have the courtesy to call Bruce to say she isn’t coming!”

And a source added that his family's split feelings have left Bruce confused on how to appease everyone. “His ex-wife, Kris, and youngest daughter, Kylie have been openly opposed to it, and now he doesn’t know what the world will think. It’s been such a juggling act for Bruce to try and keep everyone happy,” the source said. Do you think Bruce is receiving the support from his family that he needs?
