Secrets, secrets are no fun! In a new cover story for Wonderland magazine, Kylie Jenner revealed that she has known her whole life that her dad, Caitlyn Jenner, was transgender. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians beauty also opened up about how she once felt deceived by her father’s failure to come out as trans.

“I mean, obviously I knew about it my whole life, but it was never admitted to and then it was all said and done,” the E! personality, 18, explained. “I honestly just wanted to not be lied to. I just wanted honesty and no secrets.”

While Kylie wishes Caitlyn (né Bruce) would have introduced herself much sooner, the Snapchat-obsessed teen is glad that the I Am Cait star is finally able to be true to herself.

“I’m OK with everything, as long as everyone’s honest,” she said. “I want to encourage people to live their life, you know?”

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in November, Kylie admitted that she actually gets along much better with Caitlyn than she ever did with Bruce.

“I like her better than Bruce,” she confessed. “Because we talk about makeup and clothes and we bond a lot more.”

While they have a lot more in common now, Kylie was quick to clarify that her new relationship with her dad runs much deeper.

“But not only that, I feel like there’s not a huge secret in the family,” she added. “I feel like there was always this big secret … Now … I feel like we hang out a lot more and there’s no secrets. She’s really living her authentic true self.”
