Five years after Caitlyn Jenner's transition, daughters Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner have spoken out about how proud and supportive they are of their dad.

The 70-year-old's groundbreaking Vanity Fair cover was released in June 2015, debuting her new name and image after confirming she was a transgender woman. Something which, Kendall and Kylie say, made her their "hero".

"When my dad came out as transgender, our relationship grew," Kendall told People magazine. "She could finally be honest with me. Because of my dad’s bravery, I’ve learned to love what I love and not be ashamed of it."

Kendall continued, "She’s been my role model since before I can even remember, from sports growing up to now with her wisdom. She’s so brave and I aspire to be as brave as her one day.

"There are so many stories she tells about her life and I love to just sit there and listen. She has lived so many amazing lives in one lifetime. My favourite thing to learn from my dad is about my dad. Inspiring then and inspiring now."

Kylie shared that while she has always been proud of her father for everything from winning gold at the Olympics to getting her pilot's license, "watching her live out her true self has been the most inspiring of them all."

The sisters agreed, "She's our hero."
