It is no secret anymore that Kylie Jenner is now a mother to a baby girl. Jenner gave birth to her baby on February 1st 2018 but decided to reveal it to the world on February 4th. The question everyone wants to know is why was it such a big secret for Jenner’s entire pregnancy that she was going to have a baby? And, why is her pregnancy more popular than Khloe Kardashian’s and other celebrities?
The rumor of Jenner being pregnant has been flowing around since the beginning of 2017, but the family and people who knew kept the secret in and no one knew for sure whether it was true or not. Khloe Kardashian, Jenner’s sister, went on an interview with Ellen DeGeneres January 4th to talk about her pregnancy and marriage plans. While in her interview, DeGeneres took the opportunity to get the truth out about Jenner’s pregnancy, but Kardashian did not let go of the secret.
The day of the reveal, Jenner posted a YouTube video, “To Our Daughter”, that her friends and family made throughout her pregnancy. This video instantly went viral and has more than 58 million views. Although she announced she had her baby, the name was still not released until a little after everything else was announced. She named her little girl Stormi Webster.
To hear Jenner’s news, most people were shocked and happy for the family. Since she chose to go on her nine-month journey without her fans, Jenner wanted to make sure her fans knew why she did it with this message on her twitter and Instagram:
“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.
Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life changing experience I’ve had in my entire life and I’m actually going to miss it. I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. 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.”
This proves that not every celebrity wants their entire life to be public and should be able to hide certain things from the press. The Kardashian and Jenner family finally can correct all the rumors and live their lives as they did before with a new baby running around.
