Kylie Jenner posts first selfies to Instagram after hiring nanny to look after her baby
Kylie Jenner, being one of the most popular people on Instagram, confused many of her fans when she made the decision to take a step back from the spotlight back in September. Soon enough, the theory started going around that she was pregnant, which the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan made sure to avoid talking about in the following months.
Then, out of nowhere at the beginning of February, Kylie returned to let us all know that she'd been pregnant all along and had wanted to deal with it in private. She gave birth to a baby girl on February 1, she said in the announcement, and there was even a pregnancy journey video to show what she went through with boyfriend Travis Scott.
"I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. 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."
In the following weeks she revealed that the child had been named 'Stormi', proving many fans wrong despite all their intricate theorising on the subject. Kylie then posted an adorable shot of the newborn holding onto her thumb, which quickly became the most-liked photo on Instagram with nearly 17 million likes.
With her time away from the spotlight over, Kylie is back to her old Instagram ways. That means no more hiding baby bumps or posting throwback photos, but a return to the selfie. Posing in an Adidas tracksuit in her Aston Martin, the photo has already gained 5.7 million likes in the short time since it was published.
Despite the release of these photos, apparently she is finding motherhood pretty challenging. It had previously been reported that Kylie was determined not to hire outside help for her child, but now an insider has revealed she has changed her mind on the subject.
An inside source told Us Weekly that Kylie, finding being a new mother "overwhelming", has hired a baby nurse and is also relying heavily on mother Kris Jenner.
"Kris has been spending a lot of time at Kylie's house since she came home with Stormi," the insider said. "Kylie has been a natural at being a mother. However, it has been overwhelming, and Kylie has relied on Kris during these first days at home with Stormi."
For someone so used to being one of the most popular users on the photo-sharing website, Kylie seems right at home once again.
