Caitlyn Jenner is one proud grandparent.

The I Am Cait star took to Instagram Sunday to share an adorable photo of herself hanging out with her eldest son Burt and his newborn baby boy — and to reveal the new addition to the family has been named Bodhi Burton!

“So excited for @bjenner and Valerie,” Caitlyn, 66, captioned the sweet shot on Instagram. “They named their adorable first child Bodhi. The first Jenner boy!! The name moves on :).”

Burt, 37, welcomed Bodhi with his longtime girlfriend Valerie Pitalo on Wednesday, and in the days since, the happy couple has shared a slew of adorable pictures of their son.

“My guys,” Pitalo captioned a picture of Burt looking down at Bodhi. “Welcome to the world Bodhi Burton Jenner. Born July 6th, 2016. 9 lbs. 4 oz. 21 1/4 inches long.”

Pitalo also shared another picture of Bodhi asleep, joking about his adorable — and impressively large — feet.

“Biggest baby feet I’ve ever seen,” she wrote. “#Bigfoot #heavyweightchamp #chunkymonkey.”

On Sunday, Burt shared yet another adorable shot of himself cuddling up to his first child.

“Past few days have been extremely gratifying,” he wrote, adding: “#IpromiseNoMoreBabyPics.”

Past few days have been extremely gratifying 🙂 #IpromiseNoMoreBabyPics

Burt is Caitlyn’s first child with his first ex-wife Chrystie Scott, whom Caitlyn (at the time known as Bruce) was married to from 1972-81.

Bodhi is Caitlyn’s first grandson, though the former Olympian is also a grandparent to son Brandon Jenner‘s daughter Eva James, 11 months, with wife Leah, as well as daughter Cassandra Jenner Marino‘s daughters Francesca, 6, and Isabella, 4, with husband Michael Marino.

And before too long, Bodhi will have another boy to play with: Cassandra is expecting her third child, a son, with Marino in October.

So Bruce has 6 kids? 2 with each ex-wife?

Meet your grandfather who doubles as your grandmother.

Ew man hands!!

This comment is a tangled mess, coming from the transgender queen Caitlyn!

– What’s to say that Bodhi will have a child when he grows up?
– And if Bodhi decides to, why can’t the child take on the mother’s last name?
– Further, what’s to say that Bodhi won’t be transgender and then the “male” figures name would traditionally ? (Not wishing this on the innocent little baby)

Though, to be fair, Caitlyn probably wishing that baby Bodhi will growing up in a traditional way and happy to be a male. Can’t blame Caitlyn for that… we always wish for our future generations to do better than ourselves.

Let’s hope the boy stays a boy…

Wow, Caitlyn has some enormous hands. They’re larger than the baby.

Why the judgement? Is it enjoyable? How do you like being judged on appearance alone?

Gender is fluid; having that genitalia does not mean that one is a “boy.” Grandparent Cait should know.

The baby is adorable!

The use of “grandparent” is so politically correct. Applause to whomever pulled off writing this article. Trying to figure the proper name when they seem to no longer apply…good on ya. That had to have been a difficult task!

So Bruce Jenner welcomed his first grandson! Cute baby!

I think it’s sad for the innocent kids growing up in this circus. Get help Bruce, you are a sweet man who needs help.

Still can’t believe Bruce Jenner is a cross dresser

Just My Opinion on

I already feel bad for the little guy. He has a sicko for a grandfather whose hobbies include being obnoxious and making a fool of himself on a daily basis.

Teffie on

Do people really care about a boy being born to ‘carry on the family name’ anymore??
I haven’t heard a sentiment like that for years.. seems antiquated and outdated..

Lala on

Would you stop embarrassing your magazine by referring to that cross dresser as a she. HE isn’t! I’m so flipping tired of magazines running with this crap. Plus – did you take a look at that photo, he is even making his cross dresser persona gross. Ugly as sin!

Poor child

Boy? Don’t be so quick to judge, it’s sexist. The baby might choose to be a girl some day.

Liz on

Yeah! Bruce is a grandmother!!!

JoeShawler on

Bad new people…. Caitlyn Jenner is NOT a SHE!!! Caitlyn Jenner is a man with boobs. No matter how many hormone injects he has had… Bruce Jenner is a MAN. They did not change his DNA.

awww, how cute! my dog’s name is Bodhi 🙂

So will Bruce be called GRANDMA or GRANDPA?

Dickus Rubbus on

Oh man! He’s getting “tranny” all over that baby!

Such nasty, vile comments about Caitlyn undoubtedly from nasty, vile individuals.

Jenner/Caitlyn resembles a Kymoto dragon.

Congrats on the baby. All one can wish for is a healthy baby with 5 fingers and 5 toes. Joyous day for all.

Her? Check the X and Y chromosomes, it is still a HE! Lipstick on a pig is still a pig!

Poor baby, I hope his dad keeps him away from that trashy family. Sick bunch. Children don’t have a chance anymore…
