Caitlyn Jenner‘s grand reveal, formerly Bruce Jenner, on the 2015 July cover of Vanity Fair shocked the masses on Monday, and also caused some not to recognize him, like son Rob Kardashian. Unlike the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Rob was unaware that Caitlyn would reveal her new identity this way.
When the cover was released, Kim Kardashian sent Rob a text message with the photo of the VF cover attached. Rob responded: “Why are you sending me this? Who is this woman and why do I care?”
After learning the VF cover girl’s identity, Rob was no longer confused, but charmed. “Oh my god, she’s beautiful,” Rob replied to sister Kim.
According to Kim, this realization sparked a “love fest” between Caitlyn and Rob that occurred during a phone call shortly after the exchange of text messages among the Kardashian siblings. No longer clueless, it is clear that Rob is not only proud and supportive of Caitlyn’s new identity, but also impressed by her new look.
