Caitlyn Jenner, Family, Father's Day


It's going to be a family affair for Caitlyn Jenner at the ESPY Awards tomorrow, E! News can confirm.

Not only will the Olympic athlete be honored with the prestigious Arthur Ashe Courage Award, but she'll be joined by her children and stepchildren for the once-in-a-lifetime event.

Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian are all expected to attend Wednesday evening's affair along with Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

And that's not all…all of the Jenner children will be making an appearance to support the reality star as well including Brody Jenner, host of E!'s Sex With Brody", Burt and Brandon Jenner and Cassandra Marino.

Upon learning that she was going to be this year's pick for the top honor, she released the following statement last month:

"In the past few months, the overwhelming outpouring of support from all over the world for my journey has been incredible," she shared.

"However, being honored with this award, which is named after one of my heroes, is truly special. For the first time this July, I will be able to stand as my true self in front of my peers."

Past recipients of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, which is presented to those whose contributions reach above and beyond just the sports world, include Michael Sam, the NFL league's first openly gay playerGood Morning America's Robin Roberts and former women's college basketball coach Pat Summitt.

Despite recent criticism, ESPYs producer Maura Mandt spoke out in defense of choosing Caitlyn Jenner telling Sports Illustrated, "I think Caitlyn's decision to publicly come out as a transgender woman and live as Caitlyn Jenner displayed enormous courage and self-acceptance.

"Bruce Jenner could have easily gone off into the sunset as this American hero and never have dealt with this publicly. Doing so took enormous courage."

Watch Caitlyn's new series I Am Cait when it premieres July 26 at 8 p.m., only on E! and make sure to catch Sex with Brody, Friday at 10:30 p.m. too!
