Kylie Jenner may be only 18, but she's got a mature head on her shoulders — particularly when it comes to accepting her father's transition from Bruce to Caitlyn earlier this year.

Turns out the pair have a lot in common now that Caitlyn is "living her authentic true self," as Kylie told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview airing Monday. And surprise: The teen likes Catilyn "better than Bruce."

"I feel like we hang out a lot more [and] there’s no secrets," Kylie said. "She’s really living her authentic true self. And I feel like that’s awesome and also I want to be someone from my generation to like, be an example because I think that’s so awesome and I think that other girls and boys my age will maybe see that I’m so accepting and be accepting of other people too."

And she shared that feeling of acceptance with the world over the Thanksgiving holiday, posting this family Instagram portrait, writing that she's "thankful for my blended family."
