"I feel like we hang out a lot more [and] there’s no secrets."

Kylie Jenner sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and spoke about getting comfortable with her parent Caitlyn Jenner's transition.

"It was the only thing I really bottled in," said Kylie, "I don’t bottle in a lot of things and I feel like my family was a little upset about that, but I got through it and now I almost I like it a lot better honestly."

"I like her better than Bruce," emphasized Kylie.

Kylie explained that she bonds with Caitlyn when they talk about makeup and clothes, but more importantly she no longer feels like there is a "huge secret in the family."

"I feel like there was always this big secret," said Kylie. "And I’ve honestly known about it for a really long time and we actually caught him dressing up as a girl when my sister and I were like 6 and 7 maybe. So we’ve known for a while that there was something, but it was never talked about."

She said she always felt there was something deeper going on when Caitlyn, then known as Bruce, would walk in and joke around with her girlfriends but now when they hang out, there's no secrets. "She’s really living her authentic true self. And I feel like that’s awesome and also I want to be someone from my generation to, like, be an example because I think that’s so awesome and I think that other girls and boys my age will maybe see that I’m so accepting and be accepting of other people too," said Kylie.

Kylie also talked to DeGeneres about the anti-bullying campaign she started on Instagram called "I Am More Than."

"I’ve been bullied my whole life whether it was about my peers or comments on Instagram or Twitter, whatever. And I never talked about my story really," said Kylie. "I feel like I’ve kind of accepted it because I realized that just comes with the territory."

She said when she was online she found peers who have overcome bullying and she wanted to use her platform to share their stories and inspire her followers.
