Whether you ‘Keep up with the Kardashians’ or not, you probably have heard the internet-breaking news that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott had a baby on February 1st. Although many have already suspected this and rumors of her pregnancy have been flying since last fall, Kylie has officially released the news about the birth of her child.
She posted on February 4th with a statement on her social media accounts along with a video that documented her pregnancy journey. In this statement, she apologized for keeping her fans in the dark and explained her reasoning behind keeping it a secret. Kylie has enjoyed these quiet past months and she said, “Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life changing experience I’ve had in my entire life." (Read her full statement below.)
Although she belongs one of the most famous and social-media savvy families of our generation, Kylie wanting to stay out of the spotlight during pregnancy is not surprising. In various past interviews, she stated that she didn’t like fame as much as the world thought she should have, and how she wished her relationships and other aspects of her life were kept more private. Kylie has been in the public eye since she was 9 years old, so it is completely understandable for her to need privacy in her life. She said in her statement that she wanted to avoid stress because she knew it would have a negative influence on how her baby felt. She surrounded herself with her close friends and family members who supported and loved her, not strangers who would scrutinize her.
Kylie’s decision to keep her pregnancy under wraps and to keep her unborn child in a stress-free environment shows the young celebrity’s maturity. Even if you are not the biggest fan of the Kardashian and Jenner family, you have to give props to Kylie for making this decision to stay out of the spotlight. She wants to be the best mother she can to her daughter and I personally believe she is off to a good start. Do you agree with her decision to stay out of the spotlight? Has this news changed your view of Kylie Jenner? Any name predictions for the baby? Leave comments and opinions below
