The world was introduced to Caitlyn Jenner just days ago, but now we can all get a closer glimpse into her daily life.
E! has announced an eight-part, one-hour documentary series titled I Am Cait, which will illustrate the star living her life as a transgender woman and telling her intimate story as she seeks out her “new normal,” according to the press release.
Living for the first time as the person she feels she was born to be, the series will also explore what Cait’s transition means for all of the people in her life and how those relationships are affected.
(With the release of her Vanity Fair cover, Caitlyn has chosen to publicly identify as a woman and E! News will refer to her using female pronouns. In stories published prior to this date, Caitlyn was referred to as Bruce and male pronouns were used.)
I Am Cait will premiere on Sunday, July 26, at 9 p.m., but you can get your first sneak peek right now!
Today shared the first promo for the docu-series this morning, and in the 60-second clip, we see Caitlyn grooming herself by applying lip gloss and face powder as she prepares for the day. (Side note: Caitlyn’s makeup skills are on point.)
Jenner says she didn’t realize the “pressure women are under about their appearance” until recently, but got herself together and went out into the public. “We’re out into the world,” she says. “It’s so great out there.”
The world met the woman formerly known as Bruce Jenner Monday after Caitlyn made her debut on Vanity Fair‘s cover. The 22-page cover story also included an in-depth and candid interview that touched on a number of topics, including Caitlyn’s decision on genital surgery, her regrets in parenthood and past marriages, the photo shoot for the mag and much more.
But now that the big reveal is all done and over with, Caitlyn is looking forward to the next chapters of her life.
“I’m just going to go live life. I’m going to go enjoy life. I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul,” she reveals. “[Up] to this point I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear, you know, sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap, and I didn’t want them to see if my fingernails were polished or, you know, on and on and on. It was just hell.”
“To be able to wake up in the morning, be yourself, get dressed, get ready to go out, and just be like a normal person—that’s a wonderful feeling to go through life,” she told Vanity Fair. “I’ve never been able to do that; it’s always been confusion, it’s always been, you know, I’ve got one side [with] boy clothes, the other side’s women’s clothes. It’s like I cleaned the whole closet out—the boys stuff is gone.”
Don’t forget to tune in to the premiere of I Am Cait on Sunday, July 26, at 9 p.m., only on E!
