Caitlyn Jenner has a new memoir dropping April 25, and she makes a big announcement in it, People has confirmed: She underwent gender reassignment surgery in January, meaning her physical transformation from male to female is more or less complete. "The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated," Jenner writes in The Secrets of My Life, per Radar. She had indicated back in 2016 during an I Am Cait episode that she wasn't sure when or if she'd undergo the procedure, which for a person born male means removing the penis and creating a vagina.

She apparently decided to go for it, however, and to tell her fans in the interest of "candor"—and so everyone would quit bugging her about whether she'd had it done or not. "So all of you can stop staring," she writes. "You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it." She also adds, in typical Caitlyn style: "I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time." (So yeah, that "sex change regret" story obviously didn't pan out.)
