Everything We Know About Kylie Jenner’s Secret Pregnancy & Her New Baby Girl
Oh, baby! Kylie Jenner is officially a mom. After months of wondering if she was *actually* pregnant (but knowing deep down she was), the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan revealed why she kept her pregnancy journey so private — and announced she'd actually given birth several days ago.
For the last few months, everyone has been anxiously waiting for Kylie to confirm her pregnancy. News broke about Kylie expecting her first child back in September 2017. Kylie had been extremely open about her life with her fans online, but once the news of her bun in the oven was leaked online suddenly it was practically radio silence. She was noticeably absent from the public eye for nearly five months. All of her Instagram posts were clearly uploaded by her media team and were mostly throwback photos. But now the Queen of Instagram is back and she has a little princess to join her!
So, why all the secrecy? Kylie's older sister Khloé Kardashian revealed she was pregnant in December 2017 and everyone expected Kylie's reveal to come shortly after. But over a month passed since Khloé's reveal and Kylie was still as MIA as ever. She didn't appear in her family's annual Christmas card. While she was in the family's Calvin Klein ad, it was obvious she was covering her stomach in the photos.
In November, Kylie had a small, pink-filled baby shower with about 30 guests. When some paparazzi photos leaked, everyone assumed it meant she was having a girl and they were right. Kylie and Travis Scott‘s daughter was born on February 1st. The little one's name has yet to be confirmed and there are no photos or videos of her face yet. So, a few weeks ago, the rumors that circulated saying that Kylie had actually delivered her baby were wrong — and she still managed to give birth privately. Kylie's baby girl joins a growing brood of tiny Kardashian-Jenner children. Just days after her cousin Chicago West was born via surrogacy (Kim Kardashian & Kanye West‘s third baby), Kylie's little one came into the world as well.
The 20-year-old revealed on Instagram why she wanted to keep her pregnancy private, saying that preparing for bringing her daughter into the world was the most important thing to her and she needed to do so in the “most positive, stress free, and healthy way.” She didn't want her fans to think that she was trying to have a huge, profitable pregnancy reveal or an “aha moment” and apologized on Instagram for “keeping [everyone] in the dark.”
While Kylie didn't tell her fans about her pregnancy during the actual experience, Kylie released a video on Instagram that documented the past nine months, including interviews with friends and loved ones about the pregnancy. In under 12 hours, the 11-minute video got over 15 million views on YouTube. It opened with 20-year-old footage of Kris Jenner giving birth to Kylie and was intercut with Kylie's closest friends and family talking about how Kylie and Travis met, then how each of them found out that Kylie was pregnant.
The video shares some very private moments from Kylie's pregnancy, including the first moment when she first sees her baby girl on the sonogram and when she held her niece Chicago West, just a few days before she gave birth herself. (Yes, the first glimpse of Chicago is around 8:30!) Kylie's bestie Jordyn Woods is featured a lot in the video, praising her best friend for her strength through all this and promising Kylie's daughter that she is going to have the best mom. Watch until the end to catch a little glimpse of the newest Kardashian-Jenner!
Grandma Kris really brings out the waterworks — leaving basically every viewer at home just a bit teary-eyed. “You've got the best mom and you're so lucky,” Kris says. “This is such a blessing. It's going to be the most amazing journey. I can't wait to see you, meet you, kiss you love you, teach you things that maybe only I can teach you and your mom can teach you the things she can teach you. So, it definitely takes a village and I learned that along the way.”
Congrats Kylie, Travis, and the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan!
