Bruce Jenner's evolving appearance has been the source of speculation for more than a year, and now Peoplereports that the former Olympian "will soon be living life as a female."

"Bruce is transitioning to a woman," a source close to the Jenner family confirms to the magazine. "He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he's doing. He's in such a great space. That's why it's the perfect time to do something like this."

Another insider adds that Jenner will document his transition for a docu-series to be released later this year, a claimed backed up by Us Weekly andVariety's similar reports. "It will air when he is ready to be open about his transition," the source says. "But he's acting more and more confident and seems very happy."

Out and proud celebrities

Since splitting with his wife of 23 years, Kris Jenner, in 2013, the reality star has grown out his hair, has been spotted with painted nails and wearing lip gloss and underwent surgery to pare down his Adam's apple. According to the source, Jenner decided to transition slowly in part to help his family adjust to the change. However, "not everyone is 100 percent on board," one insider says. "Different people have different reactions. But everybody loves him."

It does seem that whatever Jenner is going through, his stepdaughter Kim Kardashian gives him her full support. When asked about Jenner on ET, Kardashian simply made it clear that it was Jenner's life and he was the only one with a right to discuss it. "I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right," Kardashian said.

In addition to Kim, Jenner has three other stepchildren, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian. He also has six children of his own, Kendall and Kylie, with Kris Jenner, Brody and Brandon, with ex-wife Linda Thompson, and Cassandra and Burt, with ex-wife Chrystie Crownover.
