Kylie Jenner fans have spent endless hours over the last year wondering whether or not the much-loved celebrity was preparing for motherhood. Speculation flooded news outlets the world over, while snaps of a suspicious-looking “bump” traveled rapidly across social media. But despite the intense curiosity, the reality star managed to keep details of her pregnancy away from the world… until now!
Six weeks after giving birth to a beautiful baby girl, the 20-year-old model finally appeared on social media to put fans out of their misery. On February 4, 2018, Jenner confirmed that she had been pregnant by announcing the birth of her daughter via Instagram and YouTube. She revealed the baby was called Stormi Webster, and she openly shared her happiness about the new arrival.
After nine months of relative silence, adoring Jenner fans were thrilled to hear from her and reveled in her good news. And they were only too happy to take to social media to ask her all about it. Meanwhile, one admission from the TV star left many of her followers speechless, as Jenner revealed a most unusual pregnancy craving.
Opening with a heartfelt message on Instagram, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star apologized to her online audience for not confirming her pregnancy sooner. “I’m sorry for keeping you all in the dark through assumptions,” she wrote. “My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world… my beautiful baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing.”
Then came the tirade of questions on Twitter. How was the pregnancy? Who did you tell first? How is Travis taking to life as a daddy? And of course, the one thing every new mom is asked: did you have any strange cravings during your pregnancy? This last one was a question even Jenner could no longer avoid answering.
Twitter user KingVivs was the first to quiz the model about her recent eating habits. “What is your number 1 craving when you were pregnant?” tweeted the fan. And it seems KingVivs had touched a nerve as other fans were desperate to know the answer too. “OMG THAT WAS MY QUESTION,” gushed another Jenner devotee.
The first-time mom was happy to reveal she had adored one particular foodstuff when she was carrying Stormi: Kellogg’s Eggo waffles. Despite not normally eating the breakfast snack, she loved it. “Eggos!!!” Jenner wrote. “I never liked them before I was pregnant and haven’t had one since I had her. So strange! Lol”
But not all Twitter fans were convinced, and some called the celebrity out on another dish she’d been seen indulging in. “Giiiiiirl…don’t lie we know it was in-n-out,” teased one. And the reality star did not deny it, despite being advised by doctors to steer clear of the popular fast food chain. “Lmao and in n out!! Donuts too,” Jenner sheepishly admitted.
Moreover, her craving for the forbidden junk food was further confirmed in a YouTube video released shortly after Jenner reconnected with her fans. The footage documents the highlights of her pregnancy and exposes her not-so-secret lust for In-N-Out hamburgers.
The video shows Jenner at one of her antenatal appointments with her doctor, during which she waxes lyrical about the fatty fast food. However, her doctor does not appear willing to play along. “Never eat In-N-Out,” the consultant immediately advises. She even warns Jenner that she needs to start exercising if she continues with her questionable eating habits.
But the cheeky celeb seems unconvinced, as the video later shows her paying a visit to In-N-Out with close friend Jordyn Woods. The two girls appear in good spirits and seem excited about ordering from the drive-through. Jenner, though, can’t decide on what fries to choose and there follows a hilarious exchange about whether she should have cheese fries or not.
The scene concludes with a pregnant Jenner asking her pals, “Who got cheese fries?” as she appears to be in conflict with her cravings. Later on in the video, footage shows Jenner choosing lunch at a family get-together. Again, her lust for burgers is in evidence as she piles up her plate with not one but two of the beefy delights. “One for me and one for the baby,” she giggles.
The model also decides on two different kinds of fries, some macaroni cheese, green vegetables and one pork rib. Jenner looks happy with her decision as she potters off to join her family to eat her tasty meal. From the video it appears clear that the model is enjoying being pregnant, with the chance to eat for two seemingly proving particularly attractive.
The exclusive YouTube video is simply titled “To Our Daughter” and starts with footage of Jenner’s own birth on August 10, 1997. It continues with clips of her attending various appointments and scans. Tender moments between Jenner and Stormi’s father Travis Scott are also captured on the film, which has been viewed an astonishing 67 million times.
The 11-minute video ends with Jenner and Scott in the delivery suite as the words “To our daughter, February 1 2018, 8lbs 9oz, 4:43pm” appear on screen. The simple yet intimate film mirrors Jenner’s desire to prepare for motherhood in her own private way. By her own admission, Jenner’s main goal was to keep the experience as relaxed as possible and to avoid any negativity that might impact the health of her baby.
Moreover, Jenner was sure her fans would understand her way of thinking. She thanked them for being supportive of her decision not to reveal all the details of her pregnancy until after the birth. “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 wrote on Instagram.
“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,” she continued. Jenner did admit, however, that she was desperate to share her news with her fans. “I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing,” she gushed. “Thank you for understanding.”
Meanwhile, it appears that little Stormi is already best friends with Chicago, the third daughter of Jenner’s sister Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West. And Twitter users continue to express their excitement at the new arrivals in the Kardashian and Jenner households. Users have been speculating about how the babies will develop over the next few months, how Chicago will sound when she starts talking, and what outfits Stormi will wear.
What’s more, the young mom is thriving in her new role, although she does admit she’s missing pregnancy. But even though her cravings may have faded, Jenner still knows what she wants in the way of food. Indeed, she owned up to tucking into one of her favorite items as soon as she left the hospital.
When asked by a fan what the first thing she ate was after giving birth, Jenner was very candid. “The bread from Craig’s!” she revealed. “I had it waiting for me.” Dubbed the “hottest restaurant in West Hollywood,” Craig’s is a celebrated hangout in LA and a hotspot for celebrities living in the surrounding areas. And it’s obviously popular with the Jenner/Kardashian family too!
