After keeping her entire pregnancy private, reality television star Kylie Jenner has welcomed a healthy baby girl with boyfriend Travis Scott last week.
After revealing the birth of her first baby, the cosmetics mogul and celebrity apologized to her fans for keeping them in the dark regarding her pregnancy. “I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” she wrote on an Instagram post. “I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys.”
Jenner’s boyfriend, Houston-based rapper Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster Jr., also celebrated the arrival of their daughter, posting the date of her birth on his Twitter account. He also said that there is a “new rager in town.”
Jenner also posted a video on YouTube titled “To Our Daughter,” showing a montage of footage captured over the course of her pregnancy. The couple has not yet decided on a name for their newborn daughter.
Jenner’s pregnancy was rumored back in September, but neither she nor Scott confirmed it until the baby has been born. She also made it a point to conceal her baby bump whenever she would be making a public appearance.
Explaining why she chose to remain mum on her pregnancy, sources close to the 20-year-old celebrity said she did not want to be judged by people for being pregnant at a young age. “She really wasn’t ready for the pregnancy news to come out,” said a source. “She knew it was inevitable, but she knew she would be judged for being so young.”
The source also added that Jenner was very sensitive and is obsessed with her public image. “When she started gaining weight, that’s when she really started going under the radar,” said the source. “She didn’t want the public scrutiny and didn’t think it would be healthy for her or the baby.”
