Los Angeles - Caitlyn Jenner's mother will still continue to call her Bruce.

Esther Jenner, 88, has revealed she will not be calling the 65-year-old former Olympian by her new name but did admit Caitlyn is "so much more at ease" since transitioning into a woman.

She told Access Hollywood: "She's beautiful! I was there last week, well actually, I got home a week and a half ago. And I met Caitlyn. She is ... so much more at ease.

"I still have to call him Bruce. His father and I named him that. It's going to be a struggle for me to get used to the change, but happily so ... I'm very happy for him - or her!"

Meanwhile, Esther also admitted, at one point, she thought Caitlyn had decided to undergo a gender transition to "make money".

She told Vanity Fair magazine: "I woke up one night and all I was thinking about is: Why is it necessary (for Caitlyn) to go through all these surgeries? Is this all about making money? And that was bothering me.

"He's lived a life the last 25 years - and I don't know if it was both he and Kris or mainly Kris - it seemed like their lifestyle was about money; that's why it came to my mind.''
