This Independence Day was a special one for Caitlyn Jenner.

It was the first time the 65-year-old Olympian and reality star celebrated the Fourth of July holiday after transitioning to become a transgender woman. She made her transition earlier this year and revealed her female name on June 1 in a Vanity Fair cover story.

(In E! News stories published before the magazine's reveal, Caitlyn was referred to as Bruce Jenner and  male pronouns were used.)

"Happy 4th of July!" she wrote on July 4 on Instagram, alongside a photo of an American flag. "Proud to be an American...where at least I am free to be me."

Caitlyn had undergone plastic surgery to appear more feminine during her transition. Weeks after revealing her name and new look, she has been spotted wearing several chic outfits. Last week, she donned a navy cleavage-baring lace dress while out and about in New York City, where she and a gal pal attended a Broadway play.

Caitlyn Jenner's docu-series I Am Cait premieres July 26 at 8 p.m. on E!
