Caitlyn Jenner's family members reacted to her debut as a woman on Vanity Fair's July 2015 cover on Monday, June 1. Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner immediately took to their social media accounts to applaud Caitlyn (formerly Bruce Jenner) for her brave photo shoot, followed by reactions from pregnant again Kim Kardashian, youngest family member Kylie Jenner, and hours later, Kourtney Kardashian.

"We were given this life because you were strong enough to live it!" Khloe, 30, wrote on Instagram alongside the gorgeous Annie Leibovitz-shot cover. "I couldn't be prouder!!! Caitlyn, You are beautiful!!!"
Caitlyn's supermodel daughter Kendall regrammed Vanity Fair's behind-the-scenes video from the shoot. "Now that's a cover," the runway model wrote alongside the clip, which featured Caitlyn posing for legendary photog Leibovitz in a dramatic, cleavage-baring, floor-length gown.
The full first video released by Vanity Fair showed Caitlyn in a number of glamorous looks including a tiny bodysuit and a stunning sequined number. "Caitlyn doesn't have any secrets," she says in the video. "[As] soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I'm free."
Kendall, 19, responded to that specific line on Monday.

Kourtney also shared an inside snapshot of Caitlyn at the wheel of a sports car, looking sleek in a bright-red, form-fitting dress. "Get the Porsche out the damn garage," Kris Jenner's eldest daughter wrote on Instagram. "#Caitlyn."
Like her big sisters, Caitlyn's youngest child Kylie was equally supportive and proud of her big reveal. "My angel on earth!" the teen wrote on Instagram, alongside the VF cover. "#caitlyn."
Caitlyn's ex Linda Thompson also took to social media to share her thoughts about the cover. "This changed my life forever...but it is so not about me," the former Olympian's second wife wrote on Instagram. "It's been an amazing journey & transition...challenging to understand & accept at times...but I am grateful for so many kind, intelligent, evolved hearts who have risen to that challenge...life is a complex, variant, beautiful gift to be lived authentically by each of us."
Thompson's pregnant daughter-in-law Leah Jenner also tweeted the cover on Monday.
Brandon Jenner's wife also followed up with a sweet message on Instagram that evening. "You're finally free, Cait," Leah wrote alongside a photo of Caitlyn in her gown. "#courageouswoman I love you."
No reaction was more pressing than Caitlyn's herself. The Vanity Fair cover girl joined Twitter and Facebook on Monday following her reveal.
I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me.— Caitlyn Jenner (@Caitlyn_Jenner) June 1, 2015
Meanwhile, Kim urged her 32.2 million-plus fans on Twitter to follow Caitlyn on social media.
Everyone please follow @Caitlyn_Jenner on twitter! xoxo— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 1, 2015
Kanye West and his wife were eating at NYC hotspot ABC Kitchen with Simon Huck and Jonathan Cheban on Monday around the time the cover was revealed. An observer tells Us Weekly that Nori's pregnant again mom was drinking tea with honey.
"She was laughing on the phone at one point," the insider tells Us. "Then, she looked like she was having a stern convo with Kanye."
