For the past few months, Kylie Jenner and the Kardashian family have been doing a very good job of keeping the world very interested.
Back in September last year, there was speculation that the reality television star was pregnant with her first child.
Kylie Jenner, however, chose to drop out of the spotlight entirely, neither confirming nor denying The rumors.
Kylie Jenner sent shock waves around the internet when she revealed on Sunday that she had given birth to her daughter on February 1.
And we can categorically tell you that the news was worth the wait.
Effectively drawing attention away from Superbowl Sunday, the star announced that she and boyfriend Travis Scott welcomed the new bundle of joy.
In the social media statement, the makeup mogul wrote,
‘My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing.’
Kylie Jenner also released an eleven-minute video which detailed her pregnancy journey on YouTube.
At the time, the twenty-year-old and Travis Scott had not yet revealed the name of her baby instead ending the video with the words,
‘To our daughter. February 1, 2018. 8lbs, 9oz. 4:43 pm.’
The reality star delivered her first child at the same hospital where Kim, Kourtney, and Rob welcomed their children: Cedars-Sinai in LA.
Well, a few days later, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott connived to break the internet once again after revealing the name of their baby.
Kylie Jenner posted a picture of herself and baby Stormi with the picture going on to become the most liked picture on Instagram.
That effectively takes the crown away from Beyonce and her adorable twins Sir and Rumi Carter.
On Tuesday, she announced her baby girl’s name alongside her very first photo with a caption that simply read, ‘stormi webster’ with a baby angel emoji.
Within the space of twenty-four hours, the reality television star and her baby received 14.1 million likes as well as 536K comments.
This number completely eclipsed Beyoncé and her twins who received 10.3 million likes and 317K comments.
Kylie’s mom Kris Jenner who also doubles as her manager took to Instagram to congratulate her daughter on the achievement.
In a since-deleted post, Kris Jenner wrote,
‘Wow, Kylie!! How incredible, this is the most-liked picture in the history of Instagram!! Thank you, everyone for the outpouring of love for our precious Stormi! #blessed #stormi #proudmama #love’.
It’s not clear how Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend came about the name Stormi but a source close to the family says it has been decided on for a while now.
In the same vein, Kylie has since apologized for keeping everyone in the dark concerning her pregnancy.
“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 emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”
Congratulations to Kylie and Travis!
