Brody Jenner has been making headlines lately for his recent breakup wife Kaitlyn Carter and then again when he broke things off with his short-term girlfriend, Josie Canseco.

Being that Jenner has been going through a tough time lately with his personal life, many fans are wondering if his dad has been there to help him through this difficult time in his life.

So, do Brody Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner get along and do they spend much time together since Bruce has transitioned into Caitlyn? Here is what we know about Brody Jenner’s relationship with her.

On a recent episode of The Hills: New Beginnings, Jenner opened up about how he and his dad had never really had a close relationship when he was younger. This was largely due to the fact that his dad was never around.

Jenner said that he had a bond with his dad when he was younger, but once his dad married Kris Jenner, he hardly ever saw his dad at all.

“I didn’t really grow up with my dad,” Jenner said. “When I was really little, we got to spend a little bit of time. When he started, you know, obviously the family with the Kardashian and that, I didn’t really see much of him.”

Brody was only about two years old when his parents got a divorce. Even though his parents weren’t not together throughout the majority of his life, Brody insulated that Caitlyn marrying into the Kardashian family is what made her decide to not see her kids anymore.

Caitlyn Jenner has missed many of Brody’s special moments throughout his life

On his reality show, Brody had also said that throughout his life, Caitlyn haad missed many important events, like his high school graduation. Another important event that Caitlyn was not apart of was Brody’s wedding to long-time girlfriend Kaitlyn Carter. 

Because Caitlyn was not around much when Jenner was dating (and marrying) Kaitlyn Carter, many fans think that when Caitlyn Jenner decided to transition, she did not realize that her son had a girlfriend with the same name. Whether Caitlyn Jenner knew his girlfriend or not, it was still obviously very weird for Brody to have a dad with the same name as his significant other.

“I had been dating Kaitlyn Carter for four-and-half years and my dad came out and said that he wanted to be called Caitlyn,” Jenner said. He then added: “Two Caitlyns.”

Do Brody Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner get along?

Jenner admitted that he doesn’t really know Caitlyn very well. When he got older, he and Bruce were starting to form a relationship, but then Bruce became Caitlyn and he felt that he never really got the chance to know Bruce Jenner.

Although Jenner didn’t really get a chance to know Bruce, he says that he fully supports his dad’s decision to transition into Caitlyn.

“Caitlyn is a totally different person from Bruce,” he said. “It’s her true self, but Bruce was always holding a lot back and being somebody totally different.”

Jenner never really said that he does not get along with Caitlyn. Only that the two never really had a chance to get to know each other.

Now that his dad has fully transitioned into a woman and is finally able to be her true self, there may be a possibility that the two will have a chance to get to know each other better and build a strong relationship.
