0924-caitlyn-jenner-getty-01She's official now ... Caitlyn Marie Jenner's name AND gender change was approved by a judge in L.A. Superior Court on Friday.

Caitlyn was not present, but her attorneys were there for the very brief hearing. The judge quickly gave his stamp of approval for the name change after asking if there were any objections. There were none. 

The judge didn't say it in court, but Caitlyn's request to legally change her gender was also approved. We're told judges typically do NOT mention gender changes on the record out of respect for the applicant.
