Kylie Jenner’s Road to Motherhood
I must say that this reveal did not come to a shock to me. I mean come on all the signs were there. How can the queen of Instagram possibly hold off that long without posting a selfie? You get my drift. But on a serious level I give the utmost respect to Kylie for the way she has handled herself during the past nine months. Pregnancy is, after all, an extremely personal and private experience that every woman has the right to spend with close friends and family. When one is faced with exposure at Kardashian level, well, it leaves little time to oneself. I can only assume that the idea of becoming a mother was an anxious and daunting prospect for Kylie as indeed it is for most women. This stress can only exacerbated by the likes of paparazzi and screaming fans.
At last the rumours were put to bed on February 4th as Kylie put up a post on Instagram stating that she was with child. Along with it a link to an 11 minute YouTube video namely: To Our Daughter. After clicking on it, what I witnessed can only be described as the most heartfelt love letter I’ve ever seen. I was almost moved to tears as I was taken on Kylie’s journey through her version of events. The first thirty-seconds were a home video of Kylie’s own beautiful birth and a teary eyed Kris holding her in her arms for the first time. Jordyn Woods (best friend pictured above) then opens up about she found out about the pregnancy. She is speaking directly to Stormi in the video: “Your mom and I were just living our lives then she met your father and they just hit it off-chemistry. One day, I was in your mom’s bathroom with her and she took a little test…”
As we see her glow with excitement through her baby shower and fight her cravings for cheese fries at a drive-thru, I get a real sense of maturity from Kylie that previously I had not seen. Also featured on the video is the expectant father and rapper, 25 year old Travis Scott, hugging his girlfriend during her ultrasound. Kylie is then viewed eating even more food at a thanksgiving dinner with Scott’s family. Boy she sure was eating for two.
The video quickly went viral and was viewed almost 24 million times in 24 hours. Now almost two weeks on the video contains almost 57 million views. Wow. No wonder she wanted to keep her pregnancy private. Many stars publicly congratulated the new mom and tweeted some truly beautiful messages. Before the news had been officially revealed, not everyone was fooled by Kylie’s disappearing act from the family Christmas card. Ellen DeGeneres for example stated in an interview with Khloe Kardashian on her show “Kylie is definitely pregnant I can see it in her eyes”. Wow Ellen, you have a gift. Either that or Khloe is jut a very bad liar. I’ll let you decide.
If you’ve not been paying attention to the latest news about Khloe’s pregrancy then I’ll tell you that her baby is due in April 2018 and it is not known yet whether it shall be a boy or a girl but we are all going crazy to find out!
