Caitlyn Jenner reveals she's undergone gender reassignment surgery – “I just want to have all the right parts”
Caitlyn Jenner has always been honest and open about her transition, which has been well-documented with her E! reality show and a number sit down interviews.
But the former Olympian never revealed whether she had undergone gender reassignment surgery – until now.
In her new memoir titled The Secrets of My Life, the 67-year-old says she underwent the surgery in January of this year.
Kris Jenner’s ex also makes it clear it will be the first and last time she addresses the subject.

“I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time,” she writes in an excerpt of her book obtained by Radar Online.
“The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful, but liberated.”
She adds: “I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics, almost two thirds of my life.”

Caitlyn says she finally decided to address it because so many people kept pressing her about it.
“You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”
While speaking about why she chose to eventually have the surgery, she writes: “So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis. It has no special gifts or use for me other than what I have said before, the ability to take a whiz in the woods.”
Caitlyn has also given another tell-all interview to Diane Sawyer – almost two years after she first spoke about being transgender.
In a teaser released from the upcoming interview, Caitlyn is asked if she ever had any doubts about whether she did the right thing.

“Have I made mistakes? Certainly,” she says in the promo clip.
She will also discuss whether she has any regrets from her journey.
Jenner’s family have struggled during the transition, with their lives affected by the huge change.
And in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that aired over the weekend, Caitlyn admitted she felt abandoned by her family after revealing her news.

“Day after day, month after month, nobody calls, nobody checks in. Just, ‘Hey how are you doing’,” she says.
“You can’t help but sit there and think, is it because I transitioned?
“They don’t like me anymore? I want to know what I did wrong, what I didn’t do wrong, what I did right, and move forward.”
