So it turned out Kylie Jenner was pregnant. Who would’ve guessed it? Apparently, there have been rumors about it for the last few months, but they all flew straight over our heads! I wish… Yes, yes, we’ve been diligently keeping you updated on any news about the reality star’s pregnancy… No, scratch that. We’ve been keeping you updated on any new rumors about the pregnancy during all these long months. Although, we were beginning to lose faith that we would ever get to the bottom of what is fact and what is fiction! But the moment of truth came and went and now we’re left with no more Kylie-related mysteries to solve. Sad, innit?
But just because the 20-year-old beauty gave birth, it doesn’t mean that we’re done talking about her! On the contrary! And as is always the case with all of the Kardashian-Jenners (and lately with almost everyone who has achieved any level of fame), nothing that Kylie does can’t not be met with a lot of controversy. Oh, so what did she do? Did she go to the gym two days after her baby was born, like her sister Kim who incurred the wrath of her fans by posting this video? No, of course not, don’t be silly. Although, Kylie’s fans were also triggered by a video the new mom uploaded on YouTube. There’s something of a pattern there…
Kylie’s video was a tribute to her newborn daughter.
It documented the nine months of the pregnancy, including sweet messages to the baby from the makeup mogul’s friends and family. The video also offered a glimpse of the pajama party baby shower the expectant mother threw back in November, as well as Kylie and her rapper boyfriend Travis Scott looking all loved up and super excited about welcoming into the world a miniature version of themselves.
After months of radio silence from the star of the very successful reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the not-very-successful Life of Kylie, fans were practically starving for something that came directly from their idol and the montage titled To Our Daughter came right on cue to provide the much-needed sustenance. The 11-minute-long video is actually… ahem, *whispers* somewhat moving. Yeah, you heard me, and I won’t be repeating myself! You can watch it right here, and if your face gets wet for some reason, don’t forget to blame it on those damn ninjas cutting onions…

The official announcement
Kylie also wrote a lengthy post on her Instagram where she officially announced the arrival of the baby and explained why she led us on a merry chase for so long by neither confirming nor denying the rumors we were beginning to drown in. Here is the essay the TV personality shared with her 100 million Instagram followers (and if you notice that she isn’t exactly on friendly terms with capital letters, you might want to take into consideration that she probably had more important things on her mind, like her new baby, for example).
“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.”
So, did you manage to spot what it was that stirred people to start making negative comments? You might have missed it – it was shown in the video only for a few seconds. No, it wasn’t the fact that Kylie was tucking into some delicious-looking fast food (speaking of which, where are you, health buffs?). It was the wardrobe full of clothes for the little one. The $70,000 worth of designer clothes and shoes to be more precise. At least that’s what VT reports the total cost was. That’s a lot of money for outfits that will be outgrown in like a split second…
Here are some fans expressing their feelings about being out-fashioned by a 4-day-old.

Others were marveling at Kylie’s maturity and still, others saw the birth as a magnificent business opportunity.
Kylie Jenner had her baby at 20, she’s living & thriving. I’m 18 & barely just figuring out what clothes can go together in the wash machine 🙂🙃

I give Kris Jenner 2 weeks before she allows Kylie to announce her new line of baby clothes.
I can see it now:

Well, when you’re sitting on a multi-million dollar empire what are a few tens of thousands of dollars? A trifle! After all, don’t we all want the best of the best for our children? Of course, we do, but there are reasons imposed by reason. Here’s hoping Kylie will learn where exactly those lie and succeed in teaching the little tyke to appreciate everything she has.
