Caitlyn Jenner is waving the white flag! The former Olympian opened up about her greatest accomplishments in a new H&M campaign for the company’s Sport line, and she had some very kind words for ex-wife Kris Jenner.
Although the two have verbally sparred in the past since divorcing in 2014 — mainly about the athlete’s public transition and whether or not the momager, 60, knew her spouse was transgender beforehand — the I Am Cait star appears to have put those issues behind her.
“In the ’80s, I was really down in the dumps. I didn’t know which way my life was going,” said the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians regular. “I give a lot of credit to Kris for bringing me back to life.”
The LGBTQ activist also called her children her biggest accomplishment: “The greatest thing in my life I’ve ever done — barring the Games, barring anything — children.” The decathlete added, “My kids, by far, are my greatest accomplishment — better than a medal.” She did share, however, that her Olympic gold medals have been used for plenty of show-and-tells when her six kids — Burt, Brandon, Casey, Brody, Kendall and Kylie — were children.
In the H&M campaign video, Caitlyn also spoke about her long road to transitioning to a woman, which included telling her first wife, Chrystie Crownover, about her gender identity, and consciously making the decision to transition in the future.
The gold medalist famously announced she is a transgender woman in an April 2015 interview with Diane Sawyer, after which she introduced her new self in Vanity Fair‘s June 2015 issue. The iconic cover, which featured Caitlyn in a cream bustier, was shot by famed fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz.
The E! star recently made waves in the media when she spoke at the Republican National Convention and proclaimed, “It was easy to come out as trans. It was harder to come out as a Republican.”
