The couple managed to keep their news under wraps while the 20-year-old carried their bundle of joy. "I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions," said the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Explaining why she chose to keep the experience private, Kylie said, "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."

Rumours first swirled in September 2017, when US sites TMZ and People broke the news. There were even reports that Kylie and her boyfriend Travis Scott were having a girl. A source told People: "They started telling friends a few weeks ago. The family has known for quite some time. She is really excited and so is Travis." Another insider told the publication: "Kylie was really surprised but is so happy. She wants to be a mum."

The Kardashian-Jenner clan were fiercely protective over Kylie – the youngest member of their family. Momager Kris Jennerrefused to confirm her daughter's pregnancy; it was widely expected that Kylie would debut her baby bump on the family's Christmas card, or on their reality TV show.

She reportedly held a pink-themed baby shower in November, inviting around 30 guests to her mansion in Hidden Hills – the lavish gated community that sits next to Calabasas and is home to fellow celebrities. Kylie held a pyjama-themed bash and had a marquee installed in her garden, where guests helped themselves to a waffle and omelette bar and two large sweet tables with cakes and desserts.
