Caitlyn Jenner cried after changing her name

Caitlyn Jenner cried after she legally changed her name.

The 66-year-old reality TV star - who changed her name from Bruce after undergoing a gender reassignment earlier this year - has revealed the landmark moment reduced her to tears.

She shared: "Yesterday was significant, because my name and gender change came through. Holy crap.

"Here we are - honestly never knowing if this day would ever come. In some ways, it's a little sad. Bruce was a good guy, did a lot of good things, raised a tremendous family and wonderful kids. But I just couldn't play that game any longer."

Although Caitlyn has been hailed as an inspiration, she admitted it was tough to let go of her former self.

She told Out magazine: "I actually cried a little bit about it.

"I was on the golf course, off playing by myself. It was very exciting, but such a head trip."

Despite this, Caitlyn insists she's now comfortable in her own skin, having spent so long trying to hide her true self.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star said: "I feel like I have a place in life."
