If you have a secret to share, Kyle Richards is your woman. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star kept Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy for nine months. And no, she wasn’t asked to sign an NDA.

“Friends just don’t do that kind of thing,” Richards, 49, revealed during a Tuesday, February 6, appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “It was a given thing.” 

“But how were you to know that she was keeping the pregnancy secret?” asked Cohen, to which Richards replied: “Because the whole world knew! And obviously, as their friend, it’s just a given. Don’t talk about those things.”

When a caller phoned in to ask Richards about Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas Eve party, where Kylie was visibly with child, Richards rolled her eyes. “People think I’m the Kardashians’ flipping’ doula!” she quipped. “People ask about Khloe’s, Kim’s and Kylie’s pregnancies like I’m their doula. You know what? Sorry about your luck.”

The Life of Kylie star, 20, made headlines on Super Bowl Sunday when she finally confirmed her pregnancy and announced that she and boyfriend Travis Scott welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Stormi. 

“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark though 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,” Jenner tweeted at the time. “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 … 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.”

The Lip Kit creator and 25-year-old Scott have been dating since April 2017. Us Weekly confirmed her pregnancy in September 2017.
