FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Newtown High School graduate and Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner is reportedly transitioning into a woman, according to People magazine, Newsday reported .

An anonymous source said Jenner, 65, a former student at Sleepy Hollow High School and a Mount Kisco native, will soon be living life as a woman. The magazine did not specify where along the transgender spectrum -- from transvestism to surgical sex-reassignment -- he will fall.

Jenner has been making changes gradually, according to a source, so as to not shock his family. Jenner's family is allowing him to transition at his own pace, the story said.

Jenner won the gold medal in the decathlon in the 1976 Summer Olympic Games in Montreal. He has had a career in television, and married his third wife, Kris, in 1991. She filed for divorce in September.

His family includes fellow reality-TV stars and stepdaughters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, and stepson Rob Kardashian. Other family members are his son Burt, 36, and daughter Cassandra, 34, with first wife Chrystie Crownover; sons Brandon, 33, and Sam Brody, known as Brody, 31, with second wife Linda Thompson; and daughters Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 17, with Kris Jenner.

People could not reach Jenner for comment.

Kim Kardasian told "Entertainment Tonight" last week, "I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right," adding, "I feel like that's his journey to talk about."
