Kardashians' Bittersweet Father's Day Sentiments Show They Really Do Appreciate Bruce Jenner

Bruce JennerBruce Jenner doesn't seem to get a whole lot of respect in the Kardashian family when it comes to a lot of things. In fact, on one recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kris Jenner didn't even know he was gone when he left their house for a couple of days. One thing, however, is perfectly clear: His children -- both biological and the Kardashians that he has treated like his own over the years -- have the utmost respect for him as a father, even if they don't always show it.

Today, on Father's Day, however, they voiced those sentiments loud and clear. Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe all offered heartfelt messages of love for him on their individual blogs to wish Jenner a Happy Father's Day. Kim wrote: "Thank you Bruce for always being there for me! I love you more than you know."


Kourtney and Khloe wrote similar sentiments, calling him their "second dad" and telling him how much they love him. All of their messages, however, were bittersweet, and also filled with sorrow and longing for their biological father, Robert Kardashian, who passed away in 2003. Khloe wrote:

Happy Father’s day to all of the dads out there. This holiday is always bittersweet for me, but I’ve been fortunate enough to have two wonderful fathers in my life and I am eternally grateful for that. I wouldn’t be who I am today without both of them. I love you daddy. I love you Bruce.

Kourtney echoed similar feelings, and also took time to express gratitude to her baby daddy, Scott Disick. "The light and love that he has for Mason makes my heart melt. It is a pleasure to watch his growth as he takes this journey as a father."

I typically feel a bit sorry for Bruce who seemingly gets bulldozed by the powerful women in his life, and even dismissed by Rob occasionally. But as dorky as he can be, he truly seems to love them and to keep the family grounded in many ways. These heartfelt wishes are sweet reminders that they really do recognize this and appreciate him and all he does for them, even if they don't always show it.

Do you think Bruce Jenner gets the respect he deserves from the Kardashians?
