Cape Town – Cassandra Marino, the eldest daughter of Caitlyn Jenner has spoken out about the relationship she had with her biological father and the new relationship she has formed with Caitlyn Jenner.

Bruce made it no secret that he was not the best parent to his children while they were growing up, but has admitted to attempting to mend the broken bonds since transforming to Caitlyn Jenner.

Now, the daughter Bruce Jenner reportedly wanted to abort has revealed her opinion about Caitlyn.

Casey – whose mother is Bruce Jenner’s first wife, Chrystie Scott –  told PEOPLE magazine: "My relationship with Caitlyn is much better than with Bruce, but we still have a lot of work to do.

"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."

The 34-year-old goes on to explain to PEOPLE how Caitlyn’s story has affected so many people around her in a positive way, which in turn has had a positive effect on her, she said: "She's happier and more appreciative of her family.

"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."

This comes shortly after Caitlyn Jenner revealed her true identity to the world on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine and now that she is confidently living the life she’s always wanted, her relationship with all her kids is on the mend as well.
