For Caitlyn Jenner, saying goodbye to Bruce Jenner was an emotional experience.

Jenner opened up about her name and gender change in a new interview with Out. The magazine spoke to her back in September, the day after the paperwork for name and gender change came through.

“Here we are – honestly never knowing if this day would ever come. In some ways, it’s a little sad. Bruce was a good guy, did a lot of good things, raised a tremendous family and wonderful kids. But I just couldn’t play that game any longer,” Jenner said.

Jenner, 66, went to admit she got emotional when the change came through.

“I actually cried a little bit about it. I was on the golf course, off playing by myself. It was very exciting, but such a head trip,” said Jenner.

Out

is honoring Jenner as OUT100’s Newsmaker of the Year. It has been a busy year for the star, who made her debut as a woman in June on the cover of Vanity Fair.

She went on to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs, and star in her own E! docuseries I Am Cait,, which chronicles her journey as a transgender advocate and her life post-transition.
