An elusive Kylie Jenner, who has been missing from social media for weeks, returned to Instagram confirming pregnancy rumors and announcing the birth of her first child.
The 20-year-old reality star and makeup mogul posted a touching letter to fans on Instagram, detailing her reasons for wanting to keep her pregnancy out of the limelight.
“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” Kylie told her 102 million Instagram followers. “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.”
Breaking with the tradition of her reality television family who have documented their pregnancies before, Kylie told fans, “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.”
Kylie thanked friends and family for helping her keep “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,” Kylie revealed. “I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst!”
Big sister Khloe, who is expecting her first baby, shared a snapshot of her and Kylie showing off their baby bumps, captioning the adorable shot, “Congratulations My Sweet Kylie! What a magical ride it’s been! I’ll miss you bumping along with me. Never in a million years did I think we would do this together but it’s been that much more special because of it. God is so great!! He had his Plan all along! I love you little mama – love big mama.”
Kylie shared a YouTube video to her channel documenting her journey, labeling the video “To Our Daughter.”
