On February 4, Kylie Jenner, 20, took to Instagram to announce that she'd given birth to her first child, a daughter, with boyfriend Travis Scott, on February 1.
Fans, family and friends were thrilled, but perhaps there was no one prouder than Kylie's mom, new grandma Kris Jenner, 63.
"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!" Kris captioned her post. The video Kris shared was the same teaser that Kylie also posted moments earlier on her own Instagram feed.
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! #repost @kyliejenner thank you @wttyler for putting this together. here's a little glimpse of the last 9 months. the link is in my bio ♥️
The clip Kris referenced was captioned by Kylie, "Thank you @wttyler for putting this together. Here's a little glimpse of the last 9 months. The link is in my bio.
It leads to an 11-1/2-minute YouTube video directed by pal Tyler Ross that shows Kylie's pregnancy journey. It's significant since the reality star and beauty mogul never even publicly confirmed her pregnancy, let alone shared any images of her baby bump—but it's all there now!
The video, titled "To Our Daughter," begins with a scene of Kris giving birth to Kylie in 1997 and ends with Kylie giving birth to her own baby girl. It's chock-full of intimate and personal moments and images—and shows, at its conclusion, a first glimpse of Kylie cuddling her newborn baby.
It also includes footage of Kylie holding sister Kim Kardashian West's newborn daughter Chicago West—who arrived a little more than two weeks ago (right around the 8:28 mark)—as well as Kylie kissing and traveling with Travis, getting ultrasounds during OB-GYN appointments, celebrating at her pajama-themed baby shower, ordering double cheeseburgers in the drive-thru line, showing off her bare baby bump, hosting holiday meals and much more.
It also reveals that her baby girl arrived at 4:43 p.m. on February 1, weighing 8 pounds, 9 ounces, and that Travis, her mom and her sister Khloe, 33, were in her hospital room as she labored, with sister Kendall, 22, there via iPhone FaceTime.
Big sister Kim, 37, soon weighed in on the happy news online too, retweeting Kylie's posts and adding a baby-face emoji sandwiched between two hearts.
Clearly, just like during Kylie's pregnancy, it appears her family is staying mum and letting Kylie call all the shots on what she wants to share!
Kylie first revealed the happy news that she'd given birth with an Instagram image of a lengthy personal message to her fans that she captioned with a simple black heart. Though she mentioned her friends and family, there was no reference to her daughter's rapper father, 25.
The post read, "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."
She continued, "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."
She concluded, "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."
The name Kim Kardashian is synonymous with style. Mom to baby North and wife of recording superstar Kanye West, Kardashian manages to dominate reality TV, the business world and social media with apparent ease. While some celebrities drastically alter their styles after becoming mothers, Kardashian has stayed consistent. Her secret weapon is knowing what works for her and sticking to it — even with a diaper bag in tow.
