Caitlyn Jenner

Hi Folks! Let’s get right to the latest transgender entertainment news.

Caitlyn Jenner (69) and her trans girlfriend Sophia, want to start a family. In the last year Cait has been talking about having another child, even thought she has 10 already. But, as we can all identify with, she has never brought up a child in the role of mother. The couple who have been together, although not verified by either party, for a while, will hire a surrogate to carry their child. It’s not clear who would be the actual father but possibly a mix of the two with an egg of the surrogate cis woman. Jenner transitioned in 2015.
