After almost a year of speculation, Kylie finally confirmed it: No, not her pregnancy. Rather, she jumped straight into announcing the birth of her baby.
A few hours ago, the Keeping up With the Kardashians star posted a statement through her social media platforms, confirming that she gave birth to her daughter on February 1, 2018.
In the post, the 20-year-old explained that she decided to keep her pregnancy is secret so that she could have a stress-free journey, and dismissed rumours of any “big paid reveal”.
“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 motion, so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”
She later followed up with a super sweet video tribute to her daughter, which also documented her pregnancy.
The video showed her friends revealing how they found out about her pregnancy, as well as her visits to the gynae. At one point, Kylie was also spotted holding Chicago West, making this Chi’s first official appearance in public!
For months, it was rumoured that Kylie was Kim’s surrogate, although Kim subtly refuted the rumours in a recent post.
Kim and some of the Kardashians/Jenner posted congratulatory messages to Kylie on Twitter.

Khloe also posted a never-seen-before photo of her and Kylie sporting baby bumps on her Instagram page.
The baby’s father, rapper Travis Scott, announced the birth of his daughter in his own style.
New rager in town. !!!

Kylie has yet to reveal the name of her baby, which makes us wonder if she’ll follow in Kim’s footsteps to give the baby a unique name.
