Bruce Jenner is feeling the love. The former Olympian and Keeping Up With the Kardashians star received an outpouring of support following his history-making 20/20 special with Diane Sawyer on Friday, April 24. And some of those well wishes came from those who know him best — his family.

Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and more sent sweet messages to the star during the broadcast. Soon after, Kim Kardashian — who Jenner said was the "most accepting" of his gender transition — and Rob Kardashian joined in.

"Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter," Kim captioned an Instagram selfie with Jenner. "It might not always be easy but we support you no matter what! Your honesty has opened the doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life! #respect #hero #family."

Rob added via Twitter: "You have always been a role model to me and now more than ever, I look up to you. LOVE YOU."

Kim also shared her thoughts in an exclusive interview with the Today show, which airs on Monday, April 27. "I think there is still an adjustment and there's family therapy. And we're really close," she told Matt Lauer in a sneak peek. "We all really support him. Is it a hard adjustment? Yes."

During the two-hour sit-down, Jenner, 65, explained to the ABC News veteran that he was most worried about telling his 10 children and stepchildren about his transition from male to female. On camera, his older children — Brandon, Brody, Burt, and Casey — accepted him with open arms.

"Those are the only ones I'm concerned with. I can't let myself hurt them. How do I do this? How do I do this and not hurt my children?" Jenner told Sawyer. "I tried to explain to them that much of your upbringing was 'her' as much as it was the he-side."
