Reality star Caitlyn Jenner had her 36B breasts removed after falling in love with Kris Jenner in 1990.

The 66-year-old transgender role model has revealed she started transitioning from her former self, Bruce, in the late 1980s, growing breasts up to a size 36B, but she halted her plans when she met future wife Kris.

"I actually had my boobs removed, I never told anyone that," the former Olympian said during a pre-taped interview for the 2016 MAKERS Conference. "I started on hormones. I was a good 36B. I loved them. I thought, 'This was fabulous'. My mission at that point was to transition before I was 40. Got to 39... I just couldn't go any further."

Bruce and Kris, 60, met in late 1990 and the couple wed just five months later in April, 1991, with the star locking dreams of transitioning away to commit wholeheartedly to married life.

"We hit it off from day one," Caitlyn continued. "I was very honest with her. I had to be, I was a 36B. Everything's really heading in the right direction, and I made this decision to move on with my life, Kris and I together with this family."

The couple went on to have two children together, Kendall, 20, and Kylie, 18, and Caitlyn explained what kind of agreement she had with Kris about indulging in her female side.

"The rules with Kris and I were, 'Don't dress up, certainly around the house. If you really need to do that, when you're on the road, take stuff and do that,'" she added.

Bruce and Kris announced their split in October, 2013, and their divorce was finalised in December, 2014.

Caitlyn revealed her new identity to the public on the cover of Vanity Fair in June, 2015.
