Kim Kardashian wants to make it clear that Bruce Jenner has the support of his entire family.

After the Olympic gold medalist revealed to Diane Sawyer Friday night that he is transitioning from a man to a woman, his children and step-children continue to voice their love for a parent they call their "hero."

(At this time, Bruce Jenner has not chosen to publicly identify as a woman and so E! News will continue to refer to him as Bruce and use male pronouns, until he indicates otherwise.)

"I see reports that say this one doesn't support him and this one's over here and my mom feels this way and it's really so made up," Kim revealed to the Today show. "We all really support him."

She continued, "I think there still is an adjustment. There's family therapy and we're really close. Is it a hard adjustment? Yes."

Matt Lauer's sit down with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star airs in its entirety Monday morning. She is also expected to discuss brother Rob Kardashian and her hopes for a second pregnancy.

ABC's special two-hour 20/20 broadcast titled Bruce Jenner: The Interview was watched by close to 17 million viewers. More than 972,000 tweets were also sent out during the evening making it the most social Friday telecast of all time excluding sporting events.

Some of those messages on Twitter were courtesy of Bruce's family including step-daughter Kim. Mrs. Kanye West called herself a "#ProudDaughter" before telling her followers, "Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce."

After sharing his journey for the first time, Bruce admits he's now looking forward to the simple things in life. He also hopes his story will bring awareness to a cause so personal to him.

"Have an open mind and an open heart," he told Sawyer. "I'm not this bad person. I'm just doing what I have to do."

He added, "I'm actually really excited about the future, about what I could do...I feel like I'm going to be okay. 2015 is gonna be quite a ride."
