Since word of the 20-year-old lip maven’s pregnancy leaked in September, Snap-happy Jenner has gone underground, deciding not to confirm she and boyfriend Travis Scott are expecting a girl. “She’s very happy about the pregnancy but she doesn’t want to share this with the world,” explains the insider.

The Kylie Cosmetics entrepreneur has earned the right, says the source. “She spent her adolescent life on television and has been famous for over 10 years now. If this is the first thing she wants to keep to herself, she should be allowed that.” Besides, notes the source, “She’s worked hard enough to do whatever she wants.”

And when Jenner sets her mind to something, she sticks to it! “If you knew Kylie — she can be very stubborn. When she makes her decisions, she sticks by them. This is a decision she made early on in her pregnancy and she’s sticking by it,” explains the source. Meanwhile, she and 25-year-old Houston-based rapper Scott, whom Jenner began dating in April 2016, are still enjoying their relationship, adds the source. “They’re very low-key.” Up until recently, she was hopping private planes to see him most weekends.
