Kathie Lee Gifford, Bruce Jenner bff, 'I Never Saw This Coming'

Kathie Lee Gifford, a close friend of Bruce Jenner, became the latest person in his circle to express support for his transition to womanhood on Monday's "Today" show.

"I never saw this coming, I've got to tell you," she explained to co-host Hoda Kotb.

In speaking about Jenner's ex-wife, Kris, Gifford said, "It would have shocked me as much if [my husband] Frank had told me [the same thing]."

Gifford, who is the godmother of the couple's children, Kylie and Kendall, said that both Bruce and Kris need support now that Bruce came out as transgender.

"[She's] trying to be a good friend to him — or her — now," Gifford said. "Trying to still be a great parent, and it's complicated in ways that we cannot even comprehend."

Gifford said that Bruce came out to her in private roughly a week before his revelatory interview with Diane Sawyer was broadcast on Friday. He had also come out to his family in recent months.

On the night his big interview aired, Kris tweeted a message of strong support for her ex-husband.



On Monday, Bruce's stepdaughter Kim Kardashian West said in an interview with Matt Lauer that the entire Kardashian family is supportive of Bruce, and that they are all talking and adjusting at their own pace.

"I'm really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it," she said. "And that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about."
