Jenner also opened up a new official Twitter handle under her new name and officially introduced herself to the world.
I’m so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can’t wait for you to get to know her/me.

Jenner, who became a TV star on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” as the then-husband of Kris Jenner and step-father of Kardashian sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, shared back in April that she was a woman and had been going through the lengthy and arduous process of making the transition from previously being a man.
In 1976, Jenner won the Gold medal for the United States at the Olympic Games in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, setting what was then the world record with 8,616 points. Jenner was later named the Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year.
It has been a rather turbulent year for Jenner, who finalized a divorce from Kris Jenner in December 2014 and was involved in a car crash in Malibu, California that resulted in one death and eight injuries in February 2015.
