Caitlyn also made sure to thank her family who were in the audience.

She said: “Here comes the tough part. I’d like to thank my family. The biggest fear I’ve always had of coming out is I never wanted to hurt anyone else, most of all my family and my kids.

“I always wanted my children to be so proud of their dad, for what he was able to accomplish in his life. You guys have given so much back to me, you’ve given me so much support, I am so so grateful to have all of you in my life.”
