Bruce Jenner had an urge from a young age to dress in women’s clothing, the reality star revealed to Diane Sawyer during his emotional 20/20 interview on Friday, April 24.

The former Olympic gold medalist, who admitted he began the transition from male to female 30 years ago, said he first tried on his “mom or sister’s” dress when he was just 8 or 9 years old.

“[I don’t remember the exact dress] because I put it on and then I marked the closet so when I put it back, I could put it all back in the exact same spot so I wouldn’t get caught,” Jenner admitted, adding, “At that time I didn’t know why I was doing it besides it just made me feel good.”
