Kylie Jenner announces the birth of a daughter with an epic video

There is a new addition to the Kardashian-Jenner clan. On Sunday, Kylie Jenner declared she is now a mom.

After months of speculation and being absent from the spotlight, Kylie Jenner has put the pregnancy rumors to rest. She finally announced that she gave birth to a “beautiful and healthy” daughter and apologized to fans for keeping it a secret. The 20-year-old welcomed her girl Thursday, Feb. 1.

The little one weighed in at 8 pounds 9 ounces and arrived at 4:43 p.m. local time. The new arrival is the first child for Jenner and her boyfriend, Travis Scott.

“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” the new mom said on Instagram. “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.”

She continued: “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,” she said. “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! Thank you for understanding.”

TMZ reports Jenner delivered her firstborn at Cedars-Sinai in L.A., the same hospital where sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian gave birth, as well as where her brother Rob’s daughter, Dream, was born.

Jenner also shared a message and an 11-minute video of her pregnancy journey with boyfriend Scott. She titled the emotional video, “To our Daughter.” There is a short glimpse of the baby girl, as well as Chicago West, and Jenner in the delivery room.

Her fans could not contain the excitement; a commenter wrote, “I am way too invested in this and genuinely over the moon for them.” Another commenter added: “I’m crying, I’m so so proud and happy for you. You’re going to be an amazing mom.”

Congratulation to the new parents!
