On Friday, ABC aired a two-hour interview with Bruce Jenner in which the reality star and former Olympian came out as transgender. Jenner spoke with Sawyer about telling all 10 children — biological and step — that he has from three different marriages to Chrystie Scott, Linda Thompson, and Kris Jenner.

Burt, Casey (Jenner's children with Scott), Brandon, and Brody (Jenner's children with Thompson) spoke with Sawyer about learning their dad was transitioning. "I feel like I'm getting an upgraded version of my dad... you know, of a parent," Brandon told Sawyer. "I'm just honored and more proud than ever to be a part of the family," he added to his dad.

Though no one from the Kardashian/Jenner clan had spoken publicly about Jenner's transition before the interview aired, Kim Kardashian told reporters at Variety's Power of Women luncheon on April 23 that the whole family was planning on watching the interview together. And throughout the interview, many of Jenner's children took to social media to stand behind their dad.

Brandon, Jenner's third eldest child and the first child Jenner came out to, posted a simple but beautiful note:

Kourtney, Jenner's stepdaughter and the oldest in the Kardashian clan, was filled with pride:

Couldn't be a more proud daughter. With courage and bravery, let's change the world. I am honored to stand by Bruce's side and support him.

As was Kim, Jenner's stepdaughter and the second eldest Kardashian:

Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter

Your honesty has opened the doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life! #respect #hero #family

And Khloé, Jenner's stepdaughter and the third eldest Kardashian:

Just finished watching the #BruceJennerInterview with the family. Bruzer, I'm soooo proud of you! Dads really are heros ❤️

And Jenner's stepson Rob, who said he looks up to Jenner even more these days:

You have always been a role model to me and now more than ever, I look up to you. LOVE YOU‼️‼️👐👐

Kendall, Jenner's second youngest child, reiterated her unconditional love:

And Kylie, Jenner's youngest child, also called her dad her "hero":

Understandingly, this has been very hard for me. You will hear what I have to say when I'm ready to but...

..this isn't about me. I'm so proud of you, Dad. You are so brave. My beautiful Hero.

And though ABC said Kris Jenner had no comment for the interview — which she disputed on Twitter — she also shared a message for her ex-husband:

Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero.
