Caitlyn Jenner is now officially Caitlyn Marie Jenner, female. E! News has confirmed that the I Am Cait star has had her name change and gender change approved by a judge on all legal documents, and will be issued a new birth certificate that reflects both. 

According to the documents, Caitlyn requested that her name change from William Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Marie Jenner. She listed the reason as "to better match my identity." 

In an episode of her reality show, the star explains the decision for the change: "After hearing all the struggles people go through because they don't have the proper documentation, I realized that I should be a little bit more aggressive in dealing with this issue of my identity," Caitlyn says. "I think it's time to get that process started."

Done and done.
