WATCH: Kim Kardashian On First Learning About Caitlyn Jenner Over 10 Years Ago

And how Oprah helped her come to grips with the truth about Cait. 

I never thought I'd say this, short of being held at gunpoint, but Kim Kardashian-West is kinda great. The expectant mother recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and shared her thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner and recounted accidentally catching the former Olympian in women's clothing when she was 21.

"I just ran in and I was shaking and crying and I packed a bag so quick, ran out the front door and called Kourtney and I said, 'You have no idea what I just walked in on with Bruce.'" Kim then went to Kourtney's and spent the weekend turning to a higher power: Oprah. They Googled old episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show and learned what it meant to be transgender, even though she admitted that not even Caitlyn knew what that meant at the time.

As for Caitlyn's oft-discussed love life, Kim is just on board with whatever decisions Caitlyn makes that make her happy:

"Everyone in life just deserves--no matter if we don't understand it, no matter if people think it's this crazy concept, it's not really for us to judge. If that's how Caitlyn wants to live her life then I support it, I'm so happy for her and I'll try to do whatever I can to try to make it an easy transition for the other family members."

Granted, I've never been one to keep up with the Kardashians--though I do admire Khloe's moxie--but seeing the way they, as a family, and particularly Mrs. West, have handled Caitlyn Jenner's very public transition gives me a newfound respect for them. After all, Kim K is one of the most influential people in the world and what she says and does carries weight with a lot of people. So good for her.

And good for Kanye West for knowing how to dress pregnant women. Really looking forward to that Yeezus maternity line, though. But in the meantime, check out Kim on Caitlyn on Ellen:
