Kylie Jenner kept details of her pregnancy secret from her fans and rarely went on social media while rumors circulated. She never confirmed or denied a pregnancy and left many guessing as to her current status. When she suddenly shared a photo and YouTube video that not only verified she gave birth but contained details from the previous nine months, the response was sensational. Many think that because Kylie Jenner kept the pregnancy secret more people were drawn to see the new photo of Stormi.

Kylie Jenner has only released one photo of Stormi and hasn’t spoken publicly about the tremendous response the photo received.
Stormi Webster was born on February 1, 2018, but many of the details surrounding her birth and home life continue to remain private. Kylie did write fans a note several days following the birth to apologize and explain for keeping details of her pregnancy private.
Though she opened up in the video announcement and shared the photo of Stormi, the baby’s face remains obscured from view. Kylie and Stormi’s father, Travis Scott, continue to take extra steps to protect their newborn daughter’s privacy.
The first photo or photos of a famous celebrity’s baby can often be sold for hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars. It’s unclear whether Kylie plans to sell the first clear photos of Stormi, but if so, she hasn’t hurt demand due to the fact it is difficult to see the baby’s face in the viral Instagram post.
Kylie stated that she was aware that Stormi would be impacted by any stress she experienced, therefore she chose to stay away from social media and keep the pregnancy private.
