Kellie Maloney has revealed the close bond she shares with her daughters as they continue to offer her huge support.
The boxing promoter – formerly Frank – has had backing from her family throughout her transition, and her daughters have now gone on to offer support to other families – including Caitlyn Jenner’s.
Appearing on Lorraine alongside her two daughters Sophie and Libby, Kellie revealed her daughters still call her Dad and they recently celebrated Father’s Day together.
Of their close bond, Sophie said: “We are closer in a different kind of way, we’re more friends now than we ever were before… definitely closer.”
Libby added: “Less strict and you can get away with more! It’s more relaxed and more friendship like.”
Kellie then went on: “Others that I’ve met, some are still struggling with their children… and Libby and Sophie have been very helpful and they’ve done speeches and talked to others and they go to my support group as well.”
The former CBB star went on to reveal how she felt after reaching out to Caitlyn Jenner – formerly Bruce – recently.
She told Lorraine: “I live is a goldfish bowl – she actually lives in an aquarium, you know! So I just thought if I could give her some advice on how to deal with it – not that she needs it – but if she knows there’s other people out there and [needs] any help then we’re there… the girls [Sophie and Libby] also sent letters to her daughters…”
Kellie added, “Most of us, all we want to be is treated as human being like everyone else – we don’t want to be labelled, we just want to get on with our life and enjoy life. I’ve really found myself now and I’m much more happier and contented…
“I enjoy the girls’ company – not that I didn’t enjoy it before – but it’s a lot more easier now… and I think we are a lot more closer now.”
Speaking about her new autobiography, Kellie said: “It was better than any sort of counselling I had or therapy – it was the final piece I had to do and be very truthful.
