After months of speculation, Kylie Jenner announced to her followers on Twitter and Instagram that she gave birth to a baby girl on February 1.
She and her boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott, have kept the pregnancy private, and while it was all but confirmed, today's announcement is the only official comment Jenner has made. "I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions," the announcement begins. "I understand you're used to me bringing along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world," Jenner continued. While many people, celebrity or not, choose to be very open and public about when they are expecting a child, everyone is entitled to choosing how they want and if they want to tell people. "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," she explained. Jenner went on to mention that it was never intended as a publicity stunt with the intent of a "big paid reveal."
"I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could," Jenner shared.
To accompany the big announcement on Twitter and Instagram, Jenner posted a video to YouTube celebrating the birth of her daughter. It includes messages from her close friends and family about how they found out Jenner was expecting.
"When you're 20-years-old, you're just figuring out your life. You don't know what you want. You're an indecisive teenager and you're just becoming a young adult. There was one thing that your mom knew for sure, and that was you," Jenner's friend, the model Jordyn Woods, says to the camera in a message meant for her the baby girl.
"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," wrote Jenner. "I've never felt love and happiness like this, I could burst! Thank you for understanding."
Jenner and Scott have not yet revealed their baby's name.
