Jenner daughter ‘ proud of my dad’
CAITLYN Jenner ( below) stole the show at yesterday’s ESPY Awards, giving an inspiring speech that left her daughters in tears and the crowd on their feet.
In a beautiful figure- hugging dress, the 65- year- old received a standing ovation from some of the world’s biggest sporting stars, including Australian surfer Stephanie Gilmore ( left) , as she accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
Jenner, who was the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion, said it was an honour but it also called for responsibility to help transgender people.
“For the people wondering what this is all about, whether it’s about courage or controversy or publicity, I’ll tell you what it’s all about: It’s about what happens from here,” she said.
All of Jenner’s biological children attended the presentation, as well as her Kardashian stepdaughters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe.
Her speech left her youngest daughters, Kendall and Kylie, reaching for the tissues, with Kylie ( 17) tweeting she was “so proud of my dad”.
Gilmore was also left impressed by Jenner, later tweeting she is “an incredible human”.
