Jingle all the way — with the Jenners! Caitlyn Jenner celebrated Christmas a bit early with her second ex-wife, Linda Thompson, and their sons, Brody and Brandon, on Tuesday, December 15.
Thompson, 65, shared a sweet photo of the foursome via Instagram. “Christmas is a beautiful time of year to celebrate family. We are all unique creations of life worthy of acceptance & love,” she wrote. “I’m grateful my sons @brodyjenner & @brandontjenner absorbed that teaching. They are my heart.”
She continued: “@caitlynjenner I’m happy you were at Brody’s & @kaitlynn_carter ‘s Christmas party tonight. Good times! All love..”
The family was all smiles for the snapshot. The Olympic gold medalist, 66, wore a tight red skirt and black top. Brody, 32, topped his casual look with a holiday bulb necklace, and new dad Brandon, 34, wore a button-down shirt. Caitlyn and Thompson even coordinated in leopard-print belts.
Caitlyn and the former actress were married from 1981 to 1986. Back in September, Thompson opened up about Caitlyn’s gender transition while attending the Matthew Silverman Memorial Foundation’s Light Up the Night White Party in Beverly Hills. (Caitlyn told Thompson about her truth 30 years ago.)
“I can’t say that it’s not a little surreal for all of us. I think it’s fascinating,” Thompson, who also famously romanced Elvis Presley, told Us Weekly at the time. “We continue to be friendly. We’re not close friends, we don’t hang out. But, of course, Caitlyn is invited every time there is a family function. She has shown up a few times. It’s really kind of wonderful to see how all the kids have embraced her as a parent. She’s still a parent. She’s still a father.”
She added: “I have to be honest and say it’s strange for me to see this beautiful woman, and look in her eyes, and think, ‘That’s the father of my children.’ That being said, I’m totally supportive of her and always have been.”
Caitlyn also has the support of Brody’s girlfriend, Kaitlynn Carter. The model opened up to Us about spending Thanksgiving with Caitlyn while attending a Foray Collective event earlier this month. “She was just at the house for Thanksgiving, so we see her a good amount. We’re not hanging out every day or anything, but everything is good,” she said. “We talk, we text.… She checks in a lot, which is really nice, I think.”
