Kim Kardashian on Bruce Jenner: 'Is it a hard adjustment? Yes'

Kim Kardashian is happy about Bruce Jenner's 'inner peace and just pure happiness' in his gender transition

Bruce Jenner said in his interview with Diane Sawyer that "Kimberly" had been "by far the most accepting" of his kids and stepkids regarding his transition from male to female, as well as "the easiest to talk to." Now Kim Kardashian is the first family member to speak out on TV, post-interview, about how proud she is of her stepdad -- and how the reality-TV family is still adjusting to its new normal.

"Say what you want about us, we work out everything as a family, and we have the best communication, and we are so in sync with each other," Mrs. Kanye West told Matt Lauer in a taped segment for the Monday "Today" show.

"I love having so many siblings and such a supportive mom because each family member might be dealing with this in a different way. But we have each other to go through this experience with, and I'm really grateful for that."

She's happy that Jenner has found "inner peace and just pure happiness," and she thinks he's up to the challenges that a newly hot spotlight will bring.  There have been many, many family meetings, she said, and Jenner has done a "really good job" of walking everyone through the situation. There's also family therapy.

"I see reports that this one doesn't support it and this one's over here and my mom feels this way and it's all really so made up," Kardashian said. "We all really support him.

"Is it a hard adjustment? Yes."

All the children from "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" spoke out on social media on Friday night after Jenner's interview aired.

"You have always been a role model to me and now more than ever, I look up to you. LOVE YOU!!," Rob Kardashian tweeted. Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner were similarly supportive, as was Jenner's ex-wife Kris Jenner.

And, of course, there were the messages from Kim.

"Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter," she tweeted, along with photos of herself and her stepdad. "Your honesty has opened the doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life! #respect #hero #family."
