Caitlyn Jenner’s new memoir reveals she’s had sex reassignment surgery


It’s been two years since Caitlyn Jenner announced she was transitioning from male to female, and in her new memoir, the Olympian confirms that she has undergone sex reassignment surgery.

“The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated,” Jenner writes in The Secrets of My Life, out April 25.

In an exclusive except to Radar Online, the reality star says she wrote the book so people would stop focusing on her genitalia.

“I am telling you because I believe in candor,” she says. “So all of you can stop staring. You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”

Jenner had breast augmentation and facial feminization surgery in 2015; her final reassignment surgery was in January.
