Transcript for Caitlyn Jenner opens up about her relationship with her kids
Caitlyn Jenner opening up this morning on what it's like to live as a woman two years after her intimate interview with ABC's Diane sawyer. In their latest one-on-one talk the form he olympic champ revealing how her priority now is her family. Cute little kid. Looks just like me, doesn't he? Reporter: Home movies of a high spirited high energy dream dad. Wave good-bye to mommy. Good-bye. Reporter: The athlete effortlessly lifting his children in the air. Come on. Get on your bike. Let's go for it. Reporter: This picture is still her favorite. Jenner children, Kardashian stepchildren all together. I'm so glad it's in my memory bank. Reporter: But there is always a story that pictures don't tell. Like how a dream dad was wrestling with gender falling into a depression. I just kind of dropped out of society and also I dropped out as a parent. Reporter: But at the time of the announcement two years ago Jenner's four older children sent word they wanted to be supportive to go on camera to say the past is past and they're happy to see their dad suffering gone. I just told him how proud I was of him and how inspired I was. The first thing I thought was, oh, finally makes sense. Yeah. They still calling you dad. Yeah, still calls me dad. Two years ago -- Kids -- Reporter: When life held out the possibility that Caitlyn Jenner could now be present every day in a way that Bruce was not. Some I have remained very close to and a couple of them I'm a little more distant. I have to admit I'll sit here and wonder, is it because of me transitioning or because their life is so busy that they don't call all the time. Nobody calls dad much. I'm mostly reaching out to them. Obviously the Jenner side calls more. But they all have their own lives. Reporter: And Caitlyn Jenner says she has a lesson for every parent and an irony. Your children can accept if you change your gender. But they'll never forget all the times dad wasn't there. There's no excuse for not being a good parent. No matter how many problems that you have. No excuse for that. Reporter: The Jenner children have sent word they prefer to stay private. Instead giving us a statement. We love our father and have deep admiration for her bravery. Every family has unique milestones but we can honestly say Caitlyn's gender transition has brought our family closer. At the end of the day that's what it's all about. Your family. Caitlyn will be live Monday to discuss all of this as well as her new book "The secrets of my life." That's Monday on "Gma."
