Kanye West meets Caitlyn Jenner on 'I Am Cait'

I Am Cait premiered on E! on Sunday night, and in between Caitlyn Jenner’s first meetings with her children, Kanye West made a sweet appearance while visiting Jenner’s home with Kim Kardashian West.

“Kanye and I have never really been very close,” Jenner says. “But I love his open-mindedness and I love how he’s helped Kim come to grips with what’s going on.” During her interview with Diane Sawyer, Jenner revealed that Kim was the first of her children to find out about her transition. She said that Kim told her, “You know what really turned me around thinking about this? Kanye.”

According to Jenner, West told her, “Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me; if I can’t be true to myself, they don’t mean anything.”

He affirmed those sentiments in Sunday’s premiere. “You couldn’t have been up against more,” West says in the I Am Cait clip. “Your daughter’s a supermodel. You’re a celebrity at every type of thing and it was still like, ‘F-ck everyone, this is who I am.'”

Kim chimed in: “This is just the beginning.” Watch the clip.
