Jenner may have taken the world by storm when she surprised the world as the newly appointed version of herself, Caitlyn, on the cover of Vanity Fair — but Dave Coulier from Full House has seen her coming-out coming for almost a quarter of a century!
“Bruce Jenner, he was really good friends with my ex-wife,” Coulier told Rush of his first wife Jayne Modean. “I knew this 25 years ago.”
Coulier, who was married to Modean from 1990 to 1992, said the recent revelations about Caitlyn’s gender identity were far from shocking — at least for him. “I knew that information, but I never vocalized it to anybody other than close friends,” he continued. “It wasn’t a surprise to me.”
In fact, the comedian did a show with Jenner called Skating With Celebrities several years ago. “When I saw him, I saw that he had gone through a little bit of constructive surgery,” Coulier, 55, recalled. “And I thought, ‘Man, I wonder if he’s actually going to do this.'” The star further claimed that before Jenner chose the name Caitlyn, she had a different moniker in mind. “My ex-wife always told me Bruce wanted to be Nicky Jenner,” the Fuller House actor shared.
