Bruce Jenner: Esquire's 2012 "Father of the Year"

Bruce Jenner

   Former U.S. track and field athlete, William Bruce Jenner, was named as this years "Father of the Year" by Esquire magazine. For its June 2012 issue, the magazine gives us a glimpse of Jenner's life as a father, he's triumphs and trials he has encountered before becoming the now infamous patriarch of the Kardashians.

   "I'm done with competition," admits the man who won the gold medal for decathlon in the 1976 Montreal games. Instead, the 62-year-old is contented with his tasks which includes doing school runs, babysitting Kourtney's son Mason, and playing with his prized Goblin 700 remote-control helicopter in the backyard. "Going through what I went through, being that obsessed, is not what I would consider a good, well-rounded life," says Jenner.

   As tough as he was on the track, Jenner is a big softie on the inside, according to his famous stepdaughters. "He's just such a good person with such a good heart," says Khloe, while Kim adds, "He's such a strong man." But it wasn't exactly a dream "Brady Bunch" scenario when Jenner married Kris, who was formerly wed to famed O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian, in 1990 after just seven months of dating. Kourtney, the oldest of Kris' kids with the late Kardashian, was 12 at the time and she admits she resented him. "But he didn't give up on me," she tells Esquire. "He never gave up."
