It's official. Judge grants Caitlyn Jenner's request to legally change name and gender.
Caitlyn Jenner can now get government documents under her new identity. According to The Hollywood Reporter
, a judge has approved Caitlyn Jenner's request to make her name and gender change official. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg approved Jenner's petition to legally change her name and gender during a hearing Friday in Santa Monica, California.
The 65-year-old Olympic gold medalist, who was born a man and named William Bruce Jenner, didn't attend the court hearing. The approval now means she can get government documents, such as a driver's license and Social Security card, under new identity.
Caitlyn Jenner has publicly transitioned to a woman in recent months after revealing her intentions to journalist Diane Sawyer in a major interview and TV special. Some details that accompanied her petition for a name and gender were redacted after Jenner claimed privacy concerns and threats she says she has received during her transition.
