“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum captioned a YouTube video in February 2018 documenting her road to motherhood. “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.”
The Kylie Cosmetics creator went on to call pregnancy “beautiful, empowering and life-changing,” writing, “I’m actually going to miss it. I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing. I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst!”
The makeup mogul and her on-again, off-again boyfriend sweetly celebrated Stormi’s 1st birthday the following year.
“ITS [sic] MY QUEEN ,MY HEART, MY AIR , MY EVERYTHING. STORMI’S BIRTHDAY TODAY,” the rapper wrote via Instagram in February 2019. “I LOVE U SO MUCH BABY. U THE SMARTEST AND LOVING BABY EVER. UR SPIRT KEEPS ME GOING EVERY DAY ME AND UR MOMMY LOVE U AND CANT WAIT TO SHARE MORE BEAUTIFUL DAYS WITH U. HAPPY BDAYY STORMIII LETS [sic] RAGE.”
Jenner added in a post of her own: “How did I get so lucky to have such a sweet, smart, happy baby? I just couldn’t have dreamt you up, Storm. I wish you could stay this little forever and I could protect that contagious smile and laugh of yours. I know you won’t remember much about the first year of your life but I pray that you’ll never forget to keep sharing your joy and laughter with the world. My love grows for you a thousand miles a minute. Every day with you is the best day of my life. Happy birthday to my angel on earth.”
In August, Us Weekly confirmed that the Kylie Baby creator has a second child on the way. She debuted her baby bump the following month, also showing her positive pregnancy test and ultrasound photos via Instagram.
“Stormi almost understands that she is going to be a big sister,” a source exclusively told Us in September. “She knows there is a baby in the belly!”
