Click through RadarOnline.com's gallery to find out what's fact and what's fiction in Bruce Jenner's incredible transformation from male to female.
EXCLUSIVE: Bruce Jenner takes his new trailer for a service while still wearing his wedding ring
FACT: Bruce Jenner is not gay. “It is quite complicated,” an insider told RadarOnline.com. “A lot of people think that his transformation has to do with the fact that he wants to have sex with men. If that was why he was doing this, then he would just come out as a gay man.” But “Bruce is not gay,” the source revealed. “He did not have sex with men while he was with Kris Jenner, and he does not have sex with men now.”

Fiction: So Jenner must be a lesbian then. Nope! "Bruce is not going through this transition to be a lesbian, either," insisted the source. Indeed, the 65-year-old former Olympian has fathered six biological children – Kendall, 19, Kylie, 17, Brody, 31, Brandon, 33, Casey, 34, and Burt, 36 — with women. "Bruce obviously has loved to be with women in the past," the source says. "But sex is the farthest thing from Bruce's mind right now."
FICTION: Jenner is miserable now that his secret is finally coming out. Actually, it's quite the contrary—at least according to his stepdaughter, Kim Kardashian. She recently told Entertainment Tonight that he was the "happiest" she has ever seen him.
FICTION: Nobody in the Kardashian-Jenner family has officially confirmed Jenner's transitioning into a woman. Jenner's 88-year-old mom, Esther Jenner, told RadarOnline.com exclusively, "I just learned about his transition…Bruce filled me in, and we had a very long, long, long talk about it."

He has been in counseling as required by the surgeon, and his doctor believes Bruce is psychologically prepared to become a woman."

"Scott thinks it is going to be a little weird to have to explain to the kids what is going on," a family source told RadarOnline.com of Mason, 5, Penelope, 2, and newborn son, Reign. "They are too young to understand," the source said. "As of right now, Bruce is ‘Pop-Pop' to Mason and they do not know how they are going to tell him that Bruce is going to look like a grandma."

If he can help one other person by doing this, well that would be awesome."
