Brody Jenner is breaking transition.
The reality star, who welcomed daughter Honey Raye Jenner on July 29 with fiancée Tia Blanco, recently opened up about how his own complicated childhood relationship with dad Caitlyn Jenner shaped his own parenthood journey.
“I think that what I’m most excited about is doing things differently than my father did,” Brody shared in his Aug. 10 YouTube video, adding that Caitlyn “wasn’t really around for me growing up.”
In fact, that relationship with his dad has influenced the way The Hills alum wants to be with his kids, noting that he sees himself, “just doing the exact opposite, being the absolute best father I could possibly be and getting ready for the journey and just so very excited.”
However, despite rocky times in their relationship Brody and Caitlyn remain on good terms as the Olympic gold medalist—who shares Brody and son Brandon with ex-wife Linda Thompson—was among those celebrating Brody and Tia at their baby shower earlier this year.
