After years of estrangement, Brody Jenner and his father Caitlyn Jenner are reconnecting while filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians with the episodes airing just in time for Father’s Day! We all know that Caitlyn is a stepfather for the Kardashian kids, and has two children with Kris Jenner, but how many children does Olympian formerly known as Bruce Jenner have?
Short answer is 10 children, including six biological children.
Caitlyn was married to Chrystie Crownover from December 15, 1972 to January 2, 1981 during the height of her athletic career, and had two children with her: Burton William “Burt” Jenner (born September 6, 1978) was named after Caitlyn’s younger brother Burt who died in car accident. Burt was followed by Cassandra Lynn “Casey” Jenner on June 10, 1980.
She has two sons, Brandon Thompson Jenner (June 4, 1981) and Sam Brody Jenner (August 21, 1983,) born to ex-wife Linda Thompson, who he was married to from 1981 to 1985.
Caitlyn married Kris Kardashian (nee Houghton) April 21, 1991, and became stepfather to her children Kourtney Mary Kardashian (April 18, 1979,) Kimberly Noel Kardashian (October 21, 1980,) Khloé Alexandra Kardashian (June 27, 1984,) and Robert Arthur Kardashian Jr. (March 17, 1987.) The Kardashian children lost their father Robert Kardashian to esophageal cancer in 2003, and Caitlyn has been a supportive and loving stepfather to them. She also has two girls with wife Kris: Kendall Nicole Jenner (November 3, 1995) and Kylie Kristen Jenner (August 10, 1997.)
Caitlyn also has five grandchildren: Daughter Casey has two daughters, Francesca and Isabella; Kourtney Kardashian has Mason Dash Disick and daughter Penelope Scotland Disick; and Kim Kardashian just gave birth to daughter North West on June 15, 2013.
As for Brody, he bonds with dad Caitlyn on tonight’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians by playing some paintball, and supporting Caitlyn’s desire to bring a gun in the house despite Kris’ protesting.
So now it’s time to really get to know my dad, and I will give him a second chance.”
“Right now I’m trying to build a relationship with my father,” Brody says. “This is the first time in my life I’ve ever started to have a relationship with him — and it feels good.”
[NOTE – We updated this post after Caitlyn Jenner announced publicly that she identifies as a woman. We switched out Bruce for Caitlyn and went with female pronouns instead of male, but we decided to leave in the male terms such as dad, father, and grandfather.]
