Caitlyn Jenner posted a sweet pic showing her cradling her seventh grandchild after her eldest son, Burt Jenner, welcomed the baby boy with his girlfriend, Valerie Pitalo.
“Welcome to the world William Behr Jenner,” the Olympic champion, 69, captioned two sweet pics with the newborn. “Congratulations @burtonjenner and @valeriepitalo !! Love you guys.”
Burt, 40, who Caitlyn shares with first wife Chrystie Crownover, confirmed his son’s arrival with an Instagram video on February 10. The race car driver already has a 2-year-old son, Bodhi, with Pitalo.
The baby’s name could be a tribute to Caitlyn, who changed her name when she came out as transgender in 2015. Her birth name was William Bruce Jenner.
In addition to Burt and Pitalo’s two sons, Caitlyn — who shares six kids with three ex-wives including Kris Jenner — is also a grandparent to daughter Cassandra Marino’s three children. Burt’s younger sister and her husband, Michael Marino, are the parents of Francesca, 10, Isabella, 7, and Luke, 2.
The I Am Cait alum also has a 3-year-old granddaughter named Eva James with son Brandon Jenner (whose mom is Caitlyn’s second wife, Linda Thompson) and his estranged wife, Leah. Caitlyn’s next-youngest grandchild is Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s 12-month-old daughter, Stormi.
While Caitlyn’s relationship with her stepchildren with Kris — Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian — may be fractured, her biological children have remained close to their parent since her transition. She shared a photo on Instagram over Thanksgiving that showed her with the Jenner clan and girlfriend Sophia Hutchins at Cassandra’s new home.
“My life revolves around my kids. And they’ll be in my life until the day I die,” she told Diane Sawyer in 2017.
The former reality star revealed that granddaughter Eva calls her “boom-boom.”
“She loves that name,” Caitlyn admitted with a laugh. “Actually it’s kind of fun because the grandkids will never know my former life. They only know me.”
