Bruce Jenner has opened up to his family, telling them that he has known since the age of 5 that he was meant to be a female. 

A friend of the family has told TMZ that he has kept his “true self” inside since he was a child. Even during the ’76 Olympics when he was considered the greatest male athlete in the world, in his head he was a woman. 

However he has never expressed any of his female attributes in front of his children, TMZ was told he never wore female attire around the house. 

Bruce has not revealed what his new name will be to his family yet and he will apparently not reveal it during his interview with Diane Sawyer.
