In previously unseen footage from the Bruce Jenner interview, in which the former Olympian addressed his transition into a woman, four of his six children — Burt, Cassandra, Brandon and Brody — open up about the father who "disappeared" from their lives for a time, as Cassandra refers to it.
"I'm looking forward to this next chapter," Cassandra "Casey," 34, tells Diane Sawyer, admitting that her relationship with Bruce is still "complex."

“We’re trying not to look back we’re just looking forward," adds Brandon, 33.
Bruce himself confesses that he was not the best parent when they needed him most. "The big formative years for them, I was really struggling with these issues [of gender identity]," Bruce shares, adding, "I didn't do a good job. And I apologized to my kids for that."

But once the 65-year-old came clean to his kids, they were much more willing to forgive. "In seeing him come out to me and explain his true self, I was more proud right then to carry the last name Jenner, and to be a part of the family, than at any time before," Brandon says.
Adds Burt, 36, "The one thing that I think that we have gained that means more to us than anything is the honesty."
