Caitlyn Jenner was anxious she was too "masculine" to ever get away with unveiling herself as Caitlyn and has credited her inner female for winning her gold medal in the 1976 Olympic games. "The initial shock of it was tough, but that's what parents go through and I understand that".

- comes as she believes there's too much "drama" within the family which could interfere with the release of her new memoir "Secrets of My Life". "It's a process", said Jenner, 67.

Caitlyn said she has spoke to him about her concerns in the past, adding: "I will have more conversation with him about it in the future".

The transgender reality star explained that she doesn't want to discuss the operation out of "respect", but when King pressed further, she made a surprising admission.

Caitlyn said: "I love Kimberly, I think she's a wonderful person".

Although Caitlyn claims Kris always knew she wanted to be a woman, something Kris denies, the former Olympian admitted she may not have been entirely honest with Kris. She noted that "Even parents who are huge Donald Trump supporters are unlikely to name their child Donald", a name which dropped 45% in popularity a year ago. According to the Social Security Administration's annual list of the most popular baby names, the four names out dropped off were all variations of Caitlin Jenner's name including Caitlin, Caitlyn, Katelynn, and Kaitlynn.

'Even parents who are huge Donald Trump supporters are unlikely to name their child Donald, ' Wattenberg said. "Now it is suddenly controversial".

"I don't know", Jenner replied.

Neither of these names is among the most popular, but they jumped more spots than any other names.

Babynamewizard.com founder Laura Wattenberg doesn't completely blame transphobia for the name's increasing unpopularity.

When King suggested his assumption that the surgery "would be tough", she answered, "It's not as bad as you think".
