Father's Day was the day we honored our dads for, well, being awesome dads. Many famous fathers received public tributes and in one particularly high-profile situation, it was especially touching. Khloe Kardashian's Father's Day message to Caitlyn Jenner was incredibly heartwarming.
It was Jenner's first Father's Day since she announced her public transition and introduced Caitlyn to the world. Khloe posted a photo on Instagram of her two fathers — Robert Kardashian, her biological father who died in 2003, and Jenner, her stepfather, before her transition. The caption read, "Thank you Lord for blessing me with not one phenomenal father but I was lucky enough to have two. 💙💙💙 Happy Father's Day!!!"
Jenner's biological daughters Kylie and Kendall also posted throwback pictures on Instagram wishing Jenner a happy Father's Day.
"Happy Father's Day my little light of sunshine," 17-year-old Kylie wrote, then adding what appeared to be a quote from Jenner herself. "'You can still call me dad, Kylie. No matter what I'm always going to be your father. That's never going to change.'"
Kendall's Instagram photo called Jenner a "hero" and added a poignant message that read, "Just because your appearance is different now doesn't mean you were any less of a father to me my entire life."
Jenner also reportedly spent Father's Day with all her children at her Malibu home.
Jenner made national headlines when she introduced her new self on the cover of Vanity Fair earlier this month. Some LGBT activists have lauded her very public transition for raising the visibility of transgender people, one of the communities most discriminated against in the country.
However, her family's open acceptance — and particularly her children, as evidenced in their Father's Day posts — has, to a degree, helped propel the acceptance of transgender people at large.
