Kylie Jenner kept her pregnancy private, but on Sunday she shared the news of her baby’s birth with the world: It’s a girl!
The reality TV star made the big announcement on social media Sunday, saying she gave birth on Thursday, Feb. 1 to a “beautiful and healthy baby girl.”
“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,” she told her millions of followers on Instagram.
“I’ve never felt love and happiness like this,” she added.

She wrote a lengthy post on Instagram, saying: “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 went on to add: “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.”
This is Jenner’s first child.
Jenner, 20, has not publicly identified the baby’s father.
She is known to be in a relationship with rapper Travis Scott.
A makeup mogul and reality star, Jenner has kept her pregnancy under wraps throughout, refraining from acknowledging it publicly or posting about it on social media, a unique move for a member of one of the internet’s most social-friendly families.
Sources close to the family confirmed she was expecting to CNN in September.
“My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world,” Jenner said on Sunday. “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 recently revealed the baby’s name: Stormi Webster.
Jenner followed the Tweet with a video published to her YouTube channel showing intimate details of her life over the last last nine months.

There was a little bonus near the end of the video.
Fans of the Kardashian-Jenner clan got another surprise when they caught a glimpse of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, Chicago West, in the clip. The moment comes at about the 8:26 mark, when Kardashian West can be seen handing off the tiny infant to her younger sister to hold.
Kardashian and West recently welcomed their third child via gestational carrier.
