Caitlyn Jenner has opened up for the first time about her gender reassignment surgery in her new memoir, The Secrets of My Life.
The surgery comes nearly two years after she announced to the public that she would be transitioning from male to female.
According to Radar Online, Caitlyn states in her new book, The Secrets of My Life, that she underwent gender reassignment surgery back in January this year because she was “tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time."
The book hits stores on April 25th.
The 67-year-old revealed that this will be the one and only time she will talk abut her surgery… she also received over $4million to write the book! NICE!
She writes in the book, "The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated… I just want to have all the right parts. So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis. It has no special gifts or use for me other [than]what I have said before, the ability to take a whiz in the woods.”
“I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time.”
The procedure involves the penis and testicles to be removed, then doctors use the remaining skin to be surgically repaired, which is used to create the vagina and clitoris.
Caitlyn also writes that she decided to tell this part of her story after she was often stopped by people on the street asking about her body parts.
Caitlyn adds, “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."
"I am going to live authentically for the first time in my life. I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics, almost two thirds of my life."
We are so happy that she is happy!
