"She's beautiful!" the 88-year-old Jenner matriarch told Access Hollywood's Stephanie Bauer exclusively on Monday after the cover was revealed.
Esther explained that she met Caitlyn prior to the magazine's July issue debut.
"I was there last week, well actually, I got home a week and a half ago. And I met Caitlyn. She is… so much more at ease," Esther said of her child.
As for how she'll refer to Caitlyn, Esther will be sticking to what she's used to, at least for now.
"I still have to call him Bruce. His father and I named him that," she explained. "It's going to be a struggle for me to get used to the change, but happily so… I'm very happy for him – or her!"
When asked if Caitlyn reminded Esther of anyone famous, she said Caitlyn resembles another member of the Jenner family.
"You know who she reminds me of, my granddaughter Samantha. There is a lot of Sam!" she said, explaining that Samantha is Caitlyn's niece.
On Monday, Bruce Tweeted, "I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me."
