Rob Kardashian Supports Caitlyn Jenner Just Like The Rest Of The Fam, Even Though He's Been MIA Lately
If you watched E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce special, you probably noticed that Rob Kardashian was the only member of the family missing when everyone else was sharing their support and favorite memories of growing up with the woman formerly known as Bruce Jenner. For the past couple of years, Rob's obviously been dealing with his own struggles, so it's not surprising that he didn't make an exception to let the cameras in for this. But don't worry — Rob's absence definitely doesn't mean he doesn't support Caitlyn Jenner 100 percent, especially now that she's officially revealed herself to the world. In fact, thanks to Kim, we now know that Rob Kardashian's reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover was adorable.
While talking to Access Hollywood on Monday, Kim told the cutest story about Rob seeing Caitlyn's cover photo for the first time, and there's a good chance it'll make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, too. According to Kim, this is what went down:
All the girls, we knew that Caitlyn was shooting this, but my brother had no idea. So I sent it on a mass text to everyone and my brother was on it, and he goes, "Kim, why are you sending me this? Who is this woman and why do I care?" And I was like, "Rob, that's Bruce! That's Caitlyn!" He was like, "Oh my god, she's beautiful!" And then he called her and they had a love fest, and it was so cute. But the moment was so funny.
How cute is that? It's good to hear that even though Rob's been mostly MIA for a while, he's still there for his family — especially Caitlyn — at a time when they really need him. This understandably hasn't been an easy adjustment for anyone in the family, so it's good to see they still band together when it counts the most. In fact, after the famed Diane Sawyer interview aired, Rob was supportive then, too.
My fingers are still crossed that we get Rob back on KUWTK soon to share in all the happy moments Caitlyn will have with her family now that she can be fully herself. I miss him!
