While praising the Jewish community’s commitment to family, Caitlyn said she considers herself “very blessed…[to] have a very large family.” She then turned to the network’s founder Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and said, “Rabbi, I am impressed, nine children, [your wife Debbie] did all of them!”
“I have 10 but it took me three women,” Caitlyn joked. Caitlyn has six biological children, including her two daughters with Kris Jenner, Kendall and Kylie.
It seems the other four kids are Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob. Since Caitlyn published her book I Am Cait, in which she claimed Kris knew about her transgender identity during their marriage, her relationship with Kris’ kids have been very estranged.
Kim told Ellen DeGeneres that she’d “always love” Cait for helping raise her, but said on an episode of KUWTK that Cait talking about her dad Robert Kardashian in her book was a step too far. “If you talk about my dad, I will cut you,” she said.
Khloe meanwhile admitted that her upcoming child, who’s due any minute, wouldn’t bring her back together with her once-stepdad. “No, I don’t think that affects anything with Caitlyn,” Khloe said on the morning show Lorraine. “[Things are] just as they are.”
Are you surprised Caitlyn still considers the Kardashians her kids? Sound off in the comments below.
