After months of speculation with no confirmation from the young star, Kylie Jenner has announced that she has given birth to a healthy baby girl.
The rumors that she was expecting began months ago, but the young reality tv star never confirmed the pregnancy publicly.
A few weeks ago, her sister Kim Kardashian West welcomed a new daughter via surrogate. There were a lot of people speculating that Jenner might have been the surrogate and that’s why she wasn’t speaking about her pregnancy.
Now, it is clear that that wasn’t the case at all.
She took to Instagram to tell her fans that her daughter was born on February 1st.
She made a long post to apologize for failing to confirm the rumors of her pregnancy. She stated that she knows her fans are used to being let in to every aspect of her life, and she loved that, but she wanted to enjoy her pregnancy on her own, without the world watching.
She continued that she had to be able to get ready for this life changing role surrounded by positivity and as stress free as possible. She wanted to have a healthy journey into motherhood.
Kylie stated that she knew the baby would feel every stress and big emotion so she felt it best to be very private about it for the sake of her baby and herself.
Continuing, she gave a little more naught as to how the last 9 months have gone. She told her fans that she felt pregnancy was an empowering, beautiful, life changing thing to go through and that she would miss carrying her baby.
The 20 year old also went on to thank her family and friends for helping keep her gestation and birth as private as it could be.
She gushed about the love and happiness that she feels for her child, and she thanked everyone for understanding.
Her post was well received and quickly garnered almost nine million hearts and half a million comments of well wishes and congratulations.
Travis Scott is the 25 year old rapper who fathered Kylie’s little girl. They have been together ever since she and long time boyfriend Tyga, broke up in May of 2016.
Normally, fans can count on Instagram posts almost daily from Kylie, but prior to this she hadn’t posted since Christmas Day.
She also shared a video on YouTube today called “To Our Daughter”. In it, she talks about having her baby on February 1st, weighing 8 pounds and 9 ounces.
The video starts off with footage of her mother, Kris Jenner in the delivery room when she was giving birth to Kylie.
Later in the video, Kris also speaks to the baby, telling her how lucky she is to have Kylie for her mother.
There are clips from friends and family speaking to the baby about how they found out about her impending arrival. They also spoke of Kylie being excited about becoming a Mom for the first time.
There is footage of her ultrasounds and her growing belly. There is footage of her arriving for the birth of her baby, and finally audio of the little girl being born. Her first cries are captured for the family and the world.
At the very end, you see Kylie and her baby in the hospital. She is looking down on her newborn girl and you can see the baby’s arm moving in the clip.
