You can lay all your fan theories to rest, because Kylie Jenner is officially a mom! The long-awaited pregnancy reveal from Jenner came in the form of a birth announcement (!!!) on Instagram that revealed the reality star had given birth to her first child with rapper Travis Scott on February 1.
“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” wrote Jenner, addressing why she kept her pregnancy a secret. “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.”
Fans speculated for months about whether the lip kit queen’s pregnancy was a ruse or the real deal, but it turns out she just wanted to make this “role of a lifetime” stress-free. “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 wrote. “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," Jenner continued. "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.”
It might take the public a minute to get over the shock of it all, but lucky for us, Jenner documented her journey to motherhood, compiling the footage into an 11-minute-long video.
The short film, titled "To Our Daughter," begins with footage of Kris Jenner giving birth to baby Kylie 20 years ago. Jordyn Woods, Jenner’s BFF, then takes over, addressing the newest addition to the Kardashian/Jenner dynasty and recounting the love story between her parents, Jenner and Travis Scott.
The montage goes on to include never-before-seen photos of Jenner's baby bump, that secret baby shower, doctor's appointments, a joint pregnant shoot with Kylie's pregnant big sister, Khloe Kardashian, and sweet moments shared between the new parents.
Noting her friend's longtime desire to be a mom, Woods remarks, "When you are 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," continued Woods. "And that was you.”
New dad Travis Scott also shared his excitement over his newly arrived little one, tweeting his daughter's birthday.
Here is a big congratulations to the happy, first-time mom!
