Although she initially struggled with keeping it a secret, Kylie Jenner said she likes Caitlyn Jenner better than Bruce.

During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that airs Monday, the 18-year-old said her relationship with her dad is better now.

“I like her better than Bruce,” Jenner said. “We talk about makeup and clothes. We bond a lot more, but not only that. I feel like there’s not a huge secret in the family. I feel like there was always this big secret.” (RELATED: Caitlyn Jenner Named ‘Woman Of The Year)

“And I’ve honestly known about it for a really long time and we actually caught him dressing up as a girl,” Jenner added.

“When my sister and I were like 6 and 7 maybe. So we’ve known for a while that there was something, but it was never talked about.” (RELATED: Kylie Jenner On Bruce’s Transition: ‘I Feel Like I Go Through These Times Where I Hate My Life’)

Jenner said she struggled with her father’s transition at first.

“It was the only thing I really bottled in. I don’t bottle in a lot of things and I feel like my family was a little upset about that, but I got through it.” (PHOTOS: Kylie Jenner Looks Unrecognizable Without Makeup)
