Updated February 2, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. EST: Apparently, our favorite mommy-blogger-to-be-who-is-not-currently-on-social-media is one step ahead of us as usual. A source tells People that reportedly pregnant Kylie Jenner has already landed on the perfect name for her reported daughter (yep, it’s — reportedly — a girl!). Although Jenner “has a baby name” already selected, the source notes that she “is not selling baby pictures.” So don’t get any ideas!
Kylie, can you come out of hiding, please? If only for the purely selfish reason that we are so darn tired of typing “reportedly” 15 times in a row?
Original story, published Jan. 23, 2018: Kylie Jenner still refuses to confirm or deny her pregnancy — and she’s gone virtually dark on social media. Are you starting to stress? We’re starting to stress. It’s hard to keep going when all we have to sustain us is a Christmas post on Jenner’s Instagram feed — with no belly in sight.
Still, the internet has decided that Jenner is expecting her beau Travis Scott’s baby any day now. And there are “reports” (rumors) Jenner has a plan to rebrand herself when her baby arrives — as her usual social media-centric self, but now with motherhood as the focus.
“As soon as the baby is born, she will make an announcement and introduce the baby to her fans. She will also address the fact that she went ‘dark’ on social media and in the public,” one of those weird can’t-be-a-real-friend “sources” told Entertainment Tonight. “She will release a photo, and yes, she will acknowledge the baby. She’s excited to continue to be her authentic self, and that will soon mean being a mother and sharing that with her fans.”
Yep, Jenner’s “authentic self” will be sharing motherhood with her fans — which W Magazine is convinced means the impending debut of Kylie Jenner, mommy blogger extraordinaire.
Because at some point, Jenner is “definitely not going to deny that she’s had a baby or continue to evade questions about it all,” the ET source assures us. Well, it is pretty tough to deny you have a baby when you’re, you know, carrying around an actual live baby all the time. Thanks, source.
So where’s Jenner been? And how does she expect us to do our own lip liner? Well, the same source says Jenner is “living her best life.” Okey-doke. “She has really enjoyed this time away from the spotlight. It’s the first time she can remember in her entire life not being followed by cameras and she’s just trying to enjoy this privacy.”
Although the internet was in an uproar when news originally got out about all the Kardashian-Jenner babies on the way (Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s surrogate delivered Chicago West on Jan. 15, and both Khloé Kardashian and Jenner are reportedly due soon), Jenner’s closest family and friends weren’t surprised at all Jenner was on board this particular — crowded — baby train.
“No one in Kylie’s life was shocked when she got pregnant,” a source close to Kylie told Us Weekly. “Everyone knew she always wanted to be a mom and that was one of her goals in life.” This source also confirmed Jenner’s staying busy at home with fittings and photo shoots — and even plans to have her baby there.
Kylie, we appreciate the fact that you need your privacy right now, and we have no doubt you’ll be a major influencer in the mommy blog world. But girl, send up a flare. Or release more instructional lip-lining videos. We’re lost without you.
