Kylie Jenner gave birth to a baby girl Feb. 1.
After nearly five months of navigating the rumor mill and dissecting every photo, Kylie Jenner finally not only confirmed her pregnancy but revealed she gave birth.
“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” Kylie posted in an Instagram statement on Sunday. “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.
“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. 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.”
In a video posted to Youtube titled “To Our Daughter,” Kylie gave us a glimpse into the past nine months of her life, including doctors appointments, the baby shower and the birth. Here are some of the best moments from the big reveal:
We see footage of Kylie’s own birth
The video opens with Kylie in the deliver– wait, no, that’s… Kris Jenner.
“We’re waiting for you, Kylie,” says an off-screen Bruce Jenner, holding the camera toward his wife. Intercut with black screens, Kris delivers Kylie. We hear baby Ky’s cries and see Kris holding her with tears in her eyes.
The scene was something fans did not expect to see, but it gave the video an emotional crux right away and ensured that we would be tearing up for the entire 11-minute video.
Kylie’s best friends reveal how they learned the big news
“Whatever your name is going to be,” Kylie’s best friend Jordyn Woods recalls to the camera. “This is how I found out about you.”
The video features Woods and other friends of Kylie revealing how they found out she was pregnant and how they know Kylie is going to be a great mom.
“Your mother and I were living our lives, having fun,” Woods said. “She met your father, and they just hit it off. Chemistry. One day I was in your mom’s bathroom with her, and she took a little test…then she passed it to me after, like, ‘surprise.'”
Ultrasounds, heartbeats, and baby bumps
We see Kylie’s ultrasound at 15 weeks with boyfriend Travis Scott by her side, we find out the baby is a girl and we see Kylie and Kris hearing the heartbeat for the first time. And we see lots and lots of baby bumps.
Before her pregnancy, Kylie was known to always be posting selfies to her Instagram and Snapchat. Being pregnant didn’t stop the selfie queen, but they have all just been unreleased — until now.
The first footage of Chicago West is revealed
Who would have thought we’d get our first glimpse of baby Chicago not through Kim’s social feed, but from Kylie’s own baby announcement? In the video, we see Kim handing the newborn to Kylie. The camera zooms in on the baby girl as Kylie asks, “Did you figure out the name?” Kim answers, “I think we’re going to go with Chicago.”
We see Kylie, Travis Scott and her family in the delivery room
Birth videos serve as bookends, with the video ending in a peek into the delivery room. Kylie is surrounded by a very anxious looking Travis Scott, Khloe, Kris and even Kendall Facetimed in. Though the birth itself is not shown, we hear the baby’s first cries and see a blurry close-up of her in Kylie’s arms.
