Caitlyn Jenner, who was once known as Bruce Jenner, is the father of famous celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner and step-father of the Kardashians like Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, etc. 

She also has other children from her previous marriages besides her famous children. Here is a look at Caitlyn’s previous marriages and her relationship with her children. 

Caitlyn Jenner has six biological children 

Caitlyn was married twice before she married Kris, mother of the popular Kardashians, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner. The Olympic champion was married to actress Chrystie Scott from 1972 to 1981. 

Together, the pair had two kids, son Burt and daughter Cassandra Marino, aka Casey. After separating from Scott, Caitlyn married actress Linda Thompson on January 5, 1981, in Hawaii.

While married, Caitlyn and Thompson welcomed two kids, Brandon and Brody. The now-former couple later separated and ultimately divorced by February 1986.

Their boys eventually participated in two reality shows; Brandon in The Princes of Malibu and Brody appeared on The Hills.

Finally, she began dating Kris Kardashian, and after five months of dating, the love birds married on April 21, 1991. Kendall and Kylie are their two kids. 

Caitlyn Jenner disappeared from her children’s lives 

Jenner now has a close relationship with her six biological children, but this was not always the case.

Marino, her eldest daughter, stated in previously unseen footage from her explosive 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer that her father “disappeared” from their life when they were little.

But Jenner is the first to acknowledge her own faults as a parent. Jenner said in her 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer — where she initially came out as transgender — that she was “truly suffering” with her gender identification throughout the “major, formative years” of Burt, Brandon, Brody, and Cassandra.

“Yes. The big formative years for them, I was really struggling with these issues,” she told Sawyer, adding that she “didn’t do a good job. And I apologized for that.”

However, now that Caitlyn is living a simpler life, especially after coming out publicly as a transgender person in July 2015, she was determined to restore her connections with her children, albeit it will be a long and challenging journey.

Cassandra Marino says Caitlyn Jenner is more involved after coming out 

“My relationship with Caitlyn is much better than with Bruce, but we still have a lot of work to do,” Marino told PEOPLE. “We didn’t talk for years, and now we see each other every couple of weeks and talk on the phone, which I am grateful for.”

“She’s happier and more appreciative of her family. She is trying harder and there is a softness to Caitlyn that is new to me. I think part of that is that when someone is happier, they are just nicer,” added the eldest daughter. 

Marino was a part of the “girls’ night” that Caitlyn now regularly hosts, where she first met her father after years of not talking to each other. 

“I feel so honored to be invited to such an intimate gathering after all these years,” she tells PEOPLE. “I am pleased with how beautiful and comfortable she seems every time I see her. She seems to be having a lot of fun with it!”

Cassandra Marino is very private and reserved 

Marino is the most private and reserved of the Jenner children, unlike her sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who rose to fame through the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Marino was born in Malibu on June 10, 1980, and grew up in Los Angeles, California. She has three children with her husband, Michael Marino: girls Francesca and Isabella and a boy Luke. Unlike most of her siblings, Marino keeps her family out of the spotlight.
