FINALLY, after months of speculation, 20-year-old Kylie Jenner revealed that she and boyfriend 25-year-old Travis Scott welcomed a baby girl on February 1st. They announced the news three days later and although we kind of expected this news (the social media silence and baggy t-shirts pretty much gave the game away) it was still a shock that she managed to invade making the announcement official for so long.
Last night on her Instagram, she wrote to fans, "I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all of 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."
Now she's reached parenthood - exactly what is going to happen during this next chapter of her life with Travis. We break it down to reasons why this baby girl is either going to live out the good life or in typical Kardashian fashion - have a life filled with drama.
20 WILL: The "For Our Daughter" Video Had The World In Tears
The 11-minute video Kylie and Travis edited together about their pregnancy journey was a real tear-jerker. The video opened with Kris Jenner giving birth to Kylie, then took us right through to testimonials from her BFF Jordyn and Kris, ending with loved ones gathered around Kylie on the maternity ward and a very anxious Travis sitting close by.
The intimate video really hits it's emotional peak when the baby girl's first cry can be heard.
The camera then cuts to Kylie holding her baby for the first time.
One fan wrote on Twitter, "I'm crying actual tears, watching this Kylie Jenner pregnancy story" and another said, "Ok say what you want about Kylie Jenner (because believe me I do) but that video that she made for her daughter is so freaking precious!" There was some serious feels going off in this video.
19 WON'T: She Still Has A Lot Of Growing Up To Do Herself
There are many concerns 20-year-old Kylie is too young to be a mother and even her own family aren't convinced she's ready. One source told People that Kris thinks Kylie is too young but the whole family "will all support and help her once the baby arrives." There were also several comments on Twitter about her age, one fan tweeted: "So you’re saying Kylie Jenner is pregnant when I was her age I’d cry over my quizzes and homework am I doing it wrong?" Others were shocked that she wasn't even legal drinking age.
Kylie turned 20 in August last year, so although this had begun as a teenage pregnancy she just narrowly missed being classed as a teen mom. She's also become the youngest in her family to give birth to their first child.
18 WILL: They Seem To Love Each Other Very Much
Kylie and Travis first went public when they appeared in intimate shots taken in a photo booth at Kendall's birthday party late 2016. Since then it's been quite the whirlwind romance and in the video "For Our Daughter", they appear to have mad love for each other. The video was cute as hell and they appeared unable to take their hands off each other - plus it gave the world a good look at just how much of a special bond these new parents share.
Kylie's BFF Jordyn told the camera like she was addressing their newborn, "She met your father and they just hit it off."
Although they both chose to keep most of their relationship private, they couldn't help share this video with the world. Within 12 hours online - the video hit 21 million views and still counting.
17 WON'T: They Are Still In The 'Honeymoon' Phase After Dating For Just 21 Months
Just weeks after Kylie split from her on-off boyfriend of four years, rapper Tyga, she was spotted at Coachella festival getting cozy with 25-year-old Travis in April 2016. A year earlier, Travis was dating Rihanna but it appeared she broke it off to hook up with Drake. When Travis tried to woo Kylie at the beginning, he sent her dozens of roses and she could be seen in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians receiving the gift.
They later confirmed their relationship Christmas that year and by July the following year, they were pregnant and had matching tattoos. No wonder Kylie and Travis always have their hands all over each other as they have been dating for just 21 months by the time they both reached the delivery room. A source told TMZ, "(Scott) is nothing like Tyga. He doesn't have any obvious financial issues. He doesn't go behind Kylie's back, but it's a very new relationship they are bringing a baby into."
16 WILL: They Have An Unbelievable Amount Of Cash To Spoil The Baby
When Kylie had her giant baby crib delivered last month, it was the size of a family car and took three men to carry it into her mansion. Well, when you have $50 million in the bank and that balance is still growing then it's okay to spoil your own children.
TMZ also reported that she had blown more than $70,000 during baby clothes spending spree and insider told the news site, "This is going to be the best-dressed kid you've ever seen."
Kylie could save some dollars by sharing baby goods with her sister Khloe who is due to give birth too. After Kylie announced her news, Khloe shared a photo of them both cradling their bumps and she wrote on Instagram: "My Sweet Kylie! What a magical ride it's been! I'll miss you bumping along with me."
15 WON'T: Travis Will Always Be Out Of Town
Succesful rapper Travis will still have to hit the road and make his millions performing which will leave Kylie holding the baby. On the flip side, Kylie previously admitted she's not one for partying and prefers to stay at home with her girlfriends. When she was seven months pregnant, she likely wasn't too happy to hear reports that Travis was spotted partying in the same Los Angeles nightclub with her sworn enemy - Blac Chyna.
Hollywood Life reported, "Travis rolled in with an entourage of buddies and they sat at a booth. They ordered bottle service all night and drank Grey Goose as well as champagne. They weren’t being hectic, it was a pretty chill vibe. Chyna was also at the club with her girls and they sat in a separate area. She was wearing a pretty outrageous dress, one that was skin tight and kind of transparent, especially around the chest area!" These late nights might cause problems now they both have a newborn to care for.
14 WILL: They Have A Huge Support Network Of Family And Friends
One thing that really stood out about the For Our Daughter video was how much love surrounded both Kylie and Travis. They have a huge network of family and friends which means their baby girl will always be showered with love.
Kris wrote on Twitter about the birth of her seventh grandchild, "God is SO good!! I am so excited and thrilled to welcome another precious baby girl to our beautiful, ever growing family. We are blessed beyond belief!"
During a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris appeared to confirm all three pregnancies - Kim's via surrogate, Khloe and Kylie - when she tearfully told her family at dinner, "When your babies have babies it’s magic. It’s the best. The kids bring such joy and it makes everything worth it."
13 WON'T: They Might Give Into Grandma Kris Exploiting Their Baby
When it comes to the fame game, nobody is more of a pro than momager Kris Jenner. It was likely herself that orchestrated Kylie's baby news just hours before the Super Bowl as she benefits directly through receiving a cut of Kylie's fortune. During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, she revealed, "Every time we renewed for another season. I would think to myself, ‘How can I take these fifteen minutes of fame and turn them into thirty?"
She also admitted her faith in the show being renewed was restored when "my children started having children." There's no doubt for the next season of KUWTK Kris will want Kylie's baby girl in the spotlight and the new parents might struggle to tell her no. Something we will just have to wait and witness.
12 WILL: Kylie Has Always Been Desperate To Be A Young Mom
Kylie has always had a special bond with the children in her family, she adorably appears on Snapchat alongside her nieces and nephews whenever they are goofing around. When she was dating Tyga, she took on a step-mother type of role with his young son King Cairo and even organized a Ferrari-themed birthday party for the little tot.
She previously spoke to Paper magazine about her desire to have children whilst she is young, explaining, "I don't want to start (having) a baby when I'm 30! I don't believe in after 30 - I don't know. I feel like 30 is too late."
Speaking of her sisters, she said, "They all wanted to have kids before (30). Kim was like, 'I better have two kids before 30.' She always said that." Well, this is one wish that has certainly come true for Kylie.
11 WON'T: Kylie Won't Be Able To Relate To Her Younger Fans Anymore
Kylie has made her millions through Kylie Cosmetics becoming a global success with her young audience and in just 18 months raked in $420 million. According to the business plans, if this growth continued then Kylie Cosmetics would be worth an estimated $1 billion by 2020. However, with Kylie's recent social media silence and also the arrival of the new baby it's unlikely she'll be able to connect with her young audience the same way - breastfeeding tutorials anyone?
According to one insider, "Kris is just trying to control what she can and make sure no one forgets Kylie is also a businesswoman. Kris doesn’t want to see the pregnancy affect how that is perceived." Speaking to People magazine, they added, "She wants to set Kylie Cosmetics up to sell." If Kylie does decide to take her momager's advice and sell then she could land quite the payday.
10 WILL: They Will Always Try To Shield Their Baby From The Press
Kylie went to great lengths to enjoy her pregnancy in private and shield her baby bump from the press. She was only spotted out in public very few times and she had everyone around her on lockdown so there would be no media leaks - or so she thought...
During KUWTK, Kris told the family that a member of Kylie's team had tried to snap a photo of the baby bump.
Kris said, "I really feel bad for Kylie because there's always somebody that's trying to exploit a certain situation. To have somebody in her own home trying to snap pictures they shouldn't be snapping is really, really stressful."
She continued, "You want to be able to trust the people that you're surrounded by, but we have to really be on alert at all time, and that's extremely upsetting when you feel like you can't be in your own bedroom or bathroom." We're sure both new parents will do everything to prevent this from happening ever again.
9 WON'T: Kylie Has Never Committed To Anything In Her Life
Likely because of her age, Kylie has struggled to commit to anything - ever. Sure, she dated Tyga for four years but it was very on-again-off-again as Kylie was unsure what she wanted. Speaking on her show Life of Kylie, she revealed, "I don’t want to look back in five years from now and feel like he took something from me when he’s really not that type of person." What she meant was settling down too young but then she fell pregnant with Travis just a year later.
Kylie enjoyed fame in the beginning and made a successful career out of it - then she changed her mind and decided the celeb life wasn't for her. She also swore after her first pooch Norman that she wouldn't take in any more dogs but now on her Snapchat, it looks like she has 100+. What does Kylie really want? We don't think she even knows the answer herself.
8 WILL: This Kid Will Live The Good Life In A Malibu Mansion
Kylie has always vowed that if she was ever to start a family of her own, then she would quit fame and move to a mansion in Malibu. She said it's the quiet life she desires and would even consider getting a few chickens. It's a life we couldn't imagine her living thanks to the high-maintenance public persona we've had crammed down our necks for the past few years, but that's not the 'real Kylie.'
She told Allure magazine, "I'm able to appreciate what true happiness is all about. A new car, that's not real happiness. That lasts a month. That's short-term happiness."
"People think that since we have a reality TV show and I show so much of my life that they know who I am. But on Snapchat I show people what I think they want to see. That's not me. It's a projected image, a brand. I'm not a different person. I just don't show all of me."
7 Won't: Are They Both Secretly In Love With Other People?
Kylie never really had a solid reason to break up with Tyga, as she revealed on Life of Kylie, "There was absolutely not one thing wrong with me and T. He and I will always, always have a bond. There was no crazy fight." During their good times together, the pair were inseparable and as the saying goes - you never forget your first love. When the first rumors about Kylie's pregnancy became a thing, Tyga revealed on Snapchat, "That's my baby" but he quickly deleted the post. So what exactly is still going on between these two?
Another shady fact about all this is that Travis was previously linked to Kendall. News Hip Hop revealed, "He’s been boasting that Kylie’s way better [behind closed doors] than Kendall but Kendall’s got more personality." Before Travis hooked up with Kylie, he would often be seen out partying in a large group with Kendall so this rumor couldn't be too far from the truth.
6 WILL: The Baby Will Be On A Strict And Healthy Vegan Diet
Kylie is going to kick off motherhood on the right food and make sure her baby gets all the right nutrients.
She will likely be listening to big sister Kourtney's advice as her kids calmed down once she switched to vegan side, revealing on her website, "I have noticed a great positive change in behavior with my children."
Kylie previously revealed on her Snapchat, "I'm trying this whole vegan thing."
If she decides to share her baby girl's diet on social media then she can expect to hear from the haters as she's already been called "detached from reality." Following the release of Life of Kylie an insider told Radar Online, "She didn't know how detached she was until she saw how people reacted to her show. She is not a happy person to begin with and all this show did was solidify that to her fans."
5 WON'T: Travis Has A Lot Of Legal Problems
Travis has got a long history of arrests and some of the charges are still pending. In 2015, he asked fans to jump over the barricades at Lollapalooza which could have put a lot of people in danger. That same year, it's reported he also got physical with a fan that tried to yank his chain.
Then in 2017, TMZ reported that he was arrested after inciting a riot at an Arkansas concert. According to police reports, he encouraged fans to rush the stage in a potentially very dangerous security breach. Then he was accused of encouraging an injured fan to jump from a third-floor balcony onto the stage. A former employee named Shane Morris also accused Travis of assault in a series of since-deleted tweets, however, no arrests were made or charges filed.
4 WILL: If They Both Split - Kylie Can Make It On Her Own
Kylie's father, Caitlyn Jenner believes the new parents won't be dancing together on their daughter's wedding day that's for sure. A source told Hollywood Life, "Caitlyn was really shocked and disappointed to learn that Kylie is pregnant. She thinks Kylie should have waited until she was in a long-term committed relationship."
"Caitlyn is concerned that Kylie and Travis really haven't been dating very long, and that a baby will put a big strain on their relationship."
If that is the case and it's predicted doom for this couple then it's safe to safe Kylie will be able to make it on her own. Although she is 20-years-old, she is a proven businesswoman who made $41 million in 2017 and featured at number 59 on Forbes highest-earners list — the youngest name on there. In short, she's got this.
3 WON'T: Terrible Decisions Will Be Made And Never Apologized For
Just like Travis and his string of arrests - Kylie also isn't a genius when it comes to making decisions. Over the years, she has come under fire for getting lip fillers at 16-years-old, encouraging her young fans to join in the Kylie Lip Challenge which ended in several injuries, tattooed her close friend Miles Richie (brother of Nicole and Sofia Richie) with her own initials and was accused of discriminating against those who are not able-bodied when she posed in a wheelchair for a photo shoot with Interview magazine.
Now Kylie is a mother, she will have to quickly realize that the decisions she makes doesn't just affect her - but also her family. It's going to be a lot of growing up to do and fast as the baby has already arrived.
2 WILL: The Baby Has Jordyn As The Best Godmother Ever
Jordyn Woods has been with Kylie since the very beginning and the two have a truly unbreakable bond with their 'ride or die' love for each other. On Life of Kylie, Jordyn said of her BFF, "I need to be the best me I can be. And you help me become the best me I can be." There's no doubt she will be the first in line for Godparent status.
According to Jordyn, she thinks Kylie will make a great mom. When quizzed during a red carpet appearance, she said, "I think everyone I’m friends with will make great parents."
"Kylie’s doing great. I honestly can’t speak to anyone else's situation except my own, but she’s doing really well."
Even though a Christening might be on the cards, it's unlikely that a wedding will take place. TMZ asked Kris if she would give Kylie and Travis her blessing for marriage and she loudly laughed right in the cameraman's face. Read from that what you will.
1 WON'T: They Will Always Be Scrutinized
No matter how good things are going - Kylie and Travis will always face the harsh scrutiny of not just the media but also the hoards of commenters online. When you're new parents, there are enough worries going on in your personal life without listening to all the trolls online too. Kylie confessed that in the past her fame has hurt relationships.
She told In Touch Weekly, "The hardest part about having a relationship for me is just that it's blasted all over the Internet. You have to hear about other people's opinions on who you're with. It's a lot. Most of the time, it's just not true. Like, you have no idea what I'm like in a relationship, or what kind of bond I have with somebody else. You cannot win the Internet. There's no winning. It's just unnecessary negativity. I feel like I'm in a relationship with the world sometimes."
