"There's bigger things than that!!! Spread love! We are all battling something."

Kylie also said: "Woke up still in awe... I've never been more proud of you, Dad!!!!!!"

Bruce confirmed rumours of his gender transition on Friday evening, telling Diane Sawyer: "For all intents and purposes, I'm a woman.

"People look at me differently. They see you as this macho male, but my heart and my soul and everything that I do in life - it is part of me.

"That female side is part of me. That's who I am."

The Olympic gold medal winner's four eldest children - Burt, Cassandra, Brandon and Brody - all appeared on the show to support him, while Kylie and Kendall sent a statement saying they loved and supported their father.
