  • Caitlyn Jenner shared a new video on Saturday with her youngest daughter, Kylie Jenner.
  • As Kylie did Caitlyn's makeup, she asked her to explain why she still prefers being called "dad."
  • Caitlyn said it was "one of the best decisions I made" during her transition.

Caitlyn Jenner and her youngest daughter, Kylie Jenner, discussed makeup and pronouns in a new video together.

As Kylie did Caitlyn's makeup, the 23-year-old mogul asked her to explain why she still feels comfortable being called "dad."

"So, I wanted to ask you," Kylie said. "I know, like, sometimes people get really confused when Kendall and I still call you 'dad.' I know we had a talk a few years ago, and you were OK with us still calling you 'dad.' How do you feel about that now?"

"I feel it was one of the best decisions I made, and sometimes this community can be pretty tough, especially when it comes to pronouns," Caitlyn replied. "Everybody's got an opinion and on and on and on. "

"But I really felt from the beginning that I gotta do it, kind of, my way that works for me," she continued. "And I think everybody out there has got to do it their way, which works for them."


Caitlyn publicly came out as a transgender woman in 2015, four months after she finalized her divorce from Kris Jenner, Kylie and Kendall Jenner's mom.

"Some people say, 'Oh, you're the mother.' [I say,] 'No I'm not. I'm the dad, I've been the dad the whole way. I will be their father until the day they die, or I die,'" Caitlyn said.

"You always say, 'My dad, she.' And that's tough, to kind of change the pronouns of it right in the middle," she continued. "You guys are so good - and every time I hear it, I go, 'Yeah, my girls. They're on it.'"

In January, Caitlyn revealed that she's "closer" with Kylie than with 25-year-old Kendall.

"I get along very well with the two of them, but Kylie and I just seem to be closer most of the time," she said on Dear Media's The Skinny Confidential Him & Her podcast.


"Kendall's off kind of doing her thing, and Kylie, like, I had dinner last night at Kylie's house," Caitlyn said. "And so from that standpoint, we're a lot closer. Kendall's not that - she's always very kind of a little bit more secretive. We're still very close, but it's kind of harder to figure out, where Kylie's more of an open book."
