While Caitlyn Jenner is basking in the glow of her new life, the 65-year-old Keeping up with the Kardashians reality superstar has grown more distant from two of her biggest fans – her teenage daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Both daughters showed their support at the ESPY Awards on Wednesday, but the insider says that their tears in the audience were hiding a deeper pain.
"Even though Caitlyn told them that their father is not going anywhere, they cannot help but feel that they are without a dad right now," an insider told Radar.
Kendall opened up about her fears in a recent episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians: About Bruce, when she said, "I just don't like when people say Bruce is gonna be gone."
"I'm not going anywhere," Caitlyn, who was still presenting herself as Bruce at the time, assured her daughter.
But now, the source said, "Caitlyn is definitely their mother right now and, in a sad way, is more of a mom than Kris ever was to them."
"She is embracing her femininity, which is great, but Kendall and Kylie cannot look at her as their father any more."
"They miss having their dad and they are still in such a state of total confusion over the transition," the insider tells Radar.
"Obviously they support Caitlyn, but they are also missing the role that Bruce played in their lives."
