Kylie Jenner pulled off the greatest feat of all time. Kylie managed to stay off social media and away from paparazzi for a whole nine months. Her friends and family kept her secret to the very end. On the 4th of February (during Super Bowl Sunday) she announced to the world that she had given birth to a healthy baby girl. She released a YouTube video which documented her whole pregnancy, including an elaborate baby shower with her closest friends and family. Kylie posted the following statement on instagram and twitter;
‘I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions…My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing. I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst! Thank you for understanding’.
Later she posted a photo of her baby, on Wednesday the 7th of February, announcing to the world the babies name; Stormi Webster. This post is now the most liked photo on instagram, with over 16 million likes at the time of writing. This photo has beaten Beyonce’s record of a photo with the most likes, as Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement last year had over 11 million likes.
The Kardashians are going through a period of baby fever at the moment. Kylie’s sister Kim had her baby, Chicago West, on January 15th, while their sister Khloe is currently pregnant. The Kardashian-Jenner clan seems to be ever growing. Confused? Here’s a list to help you keep track. Kris Jenner now has a total of eight grandchildren, with another one on the way. Kourtney Kardashian, the eldest sister, has three children with ex-partner Scott Disick, including Mason Dash Disick, Penelope Scotland Disick and Reign Aston Disick. Kim and Kanye West also have three children; North West, Saint West and Chicago West. Rob Kardashian has one child with ex-fiance Blac Chyna; a girl, Dream Renée Kardashian. Now Kylie and boyfriend Travis Scott have Stormi Webster, and Khloe’s due to give birth in late April, with partner Tristan Thompson the father. Kendall Jenner is the now the only one in the family to have not announced a pregnancy or birth of a child.
Speculation surrounding Kylie’s pregnancy began in September as she moved out of the spotlight. Photos of the star began to pop up “proving” she was pregnant as she dressed in loose clothing, which was unlike her usual style. By December she was not photographed for the family’s annual Christmas card, further “proof” something was up. Her boyfriend, Travis Scott, sent twitter into meltdown earlier on in the year; he posted a snapchat with the caption ‘make it home to ya one way or another’. Fans were convinced that Kylie had gone into labour. Conspiracy theories began to grow. One stated that Kylie was actually the surrogate for Kim’s baby, while another argued that Khloe was not actually pregnant, and Kylie was going to give Khloe her baby and pretend she was never pregnant.
