When rumours first emerged about Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy in 2017, no one knew what to believe. For the next six months, ‘are they or aren’t they’ reports continued to make headlines about Jenner and her then-new boyfriend Travis Scott and blurry images of the Kylie Cosmetics founder were analysed for evidence of a bump.
After spending most of her life in the spotlight, and curating a mega online presence through Instagram, it was hard to imagine Jenner would opt to keep her pregnancy a secret. But it turns out, that’s exactly what she did, confirming the rumours only after giving birth to her daughter Stormi Webster with a home video showing her journey to motherhood.
Now, the same reports are repeating themselves. After a fan’s in-depth Tik Tok theory that Jenner is pregnant again, and again hiding it from the world, multiple publications confirmed the news over the weekend. Unsurprisingly, neither Jenner nor Scott have commented, but sources close to the couple say they are thrilled about the news and so too is their three-year-old toddler.
“Stormi is fully aware there is a baby coming and she is so excited,” a source close to Jenner told E! News. “She is always asking questions and wanting to touch Kylie’s stomach, it’s really cute.”
The source continued, “Kylie always wanted to give Stormi a sibling.”
Jenner has been “enjoying her pregnancy in private,” a source told People. “Kylie is a few months along. She has a cute bump. She is beyond excited. She has been wanting to give Stormi a sibling for a while. She loves being a mum.”
They added, “She is thrilled that she and Travis are pregnant again. She has been enjoying her pregnancy in private. She has only spent time with close friends and family.” Indeed, instead of throwing a wild birthday party as she usually does, Jenner’s 24th earlier this month was considerably more low-key. She swapped a superyacht (where she spent her 22nd) and Nobu (where she spent her 23rd) for brunch and a painting class.
Unlike previous years, Jenner kept the celebrations completely off social media, too, other than a series of photos of herself in a green dress which could have been taken months ago.
Another E! News source said Jenner and Scott, who got back together a few months ago, “are completely overjoyed and can’t wait to expand the family,” adding, “They love the family they’ve created and this news has them both extremely excited. Both of their families have been supportive and everyone is thrilled for them.”
Jenner has spoken publicly many times over the years about wanting to expand her family. “My friends all pressure me about it,” she told Harper’s Bazaar last year. “They love Stormi. I definitely feel pressure to give her a sibling, but there’s no plan.”
Jenner also reflected on her first private pregnancy with Stormi: “After I got pregnant, I spent so much time at home, I love it,” she said. “I love to lie in my bed and watch movies and forget about the world. Sometimes I take some time off, let the nannies take days off, and hang out at home with Stormi.”
In regards to Scott, Jenner said, “We have such a great relationship. We’re like best friends. We both love Stormi and want what’s best for her. We stay connected and coordinated. I think about [my parents] in situations with Stormi, what they would do. They were very hands-on with me, and I want the same for Stormi.”
