Caitlyn Jenner turns 66 today, just months after her gender transition

Caitlyn Jenner is celebrating her birthday today and it’s a particularly momentous day, given that it’s her first one since transitioning as a woman.

The reality star – formerly known as Bruce – has turned 66 years old just months after revealing her female identity to the world so it’s only right that she should celebrate in a special way.

To mark the occasion, Caitlyn enjoyed an early family get-together yesterday which was attended by the likes of daughter Kylie Jenner and stepdaughters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian.

Is Caitlyn Jenner going on I’m A Celebrity?

The clan dined out at The Villa in Woodland Hills, California and all seemed to be in high spirits, according to an eyewitness.

‘Kourtney, Kim and Penelope [Disick] arrived together and Kylie arrived on her own,’ the source tells ET.

‘[Everyone] seemed very upbeat and ready to have a birthday lunch a day early.’

Despite regularly being followed by cameras for their fly-on-the-wall TV shows, it sounds like this particularly special meal was more of an intimate occasion.

‘The staff really tried to give them their privacy,’ another source claims.

It might have been a private celebration but Caitlyn’s youngest daughter Kylie, 18, couldn’t resist posting an adorable selfie with the birthday girl on Instagram along with a moving message.

‘Early birthday lunch with @caitlynjenner,’ Kylie wrote about the snap.

‘Happy birthday dad what an amazing year for you.’

Awww! It’s lovely to see how supportive Kylie is of Caitlyn Jenner as she celebrates her special day.

Caitlyn has been toasting her birthday in other ways too. Last night she hit the red carpet in Los Angeles for the Logo TV launch of their web series Beautiful As I Want To Be and looked fantastic in a classy black dress.

She’s also received lots of sweet messages from fans on Twitter wishing her a wonderful day. Many happy returns, Caitlyn Jenner!
