Kylie Jenner deletes all photos of baby Stormi from her social media
While it may seem that little baby Stormi entered this world years ago, it was actually only a matter of months. Such is the number of fanfare and articles that greeted her arrival, Stormi has become part of a global "family," with it feeling like we are all related to her in one way or another.
Despite her mother's best attempts, we'd all known about Stormi's presence long before she arrived. Kylie Jenner's absence from social media didn't have the impact that the young mother wanted. While she was trying to take a respite from the 24-hour news coverage that follows her every move, taking herself away from the limelight - where she was usually so active - only heightened the idea that she was expecting.
And, in February of this year, Stormi arrived and the world rejoiced. Kylie was back on social media, headlines were made and everything seemed at peace. At the time, Kylie - who we must remember is only 21 years old - apologised for wanting to experience pregnancy in private.
"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," she said.
"My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world," she said. "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."
However, while Kylie may have disappeared from Instagram during her pregnancy, it would be safe to say that she's been back to ruling the roost since Stormi's arrival. The mother-of-one has been regularly posting photos of her daughter to her social channels... until now.
Taking to her account to upload a candid selfie of her and her little one, fans quickly noticed that Kylie had cropped out her baby's face from the photo. After a few snarky criticisms from fans of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, Kylie responded, saying: "yeah i cut my baby out. I’m not sharing photos of my girl right now."
However, while she may have put an end to sharing photos of Stormi, the mom went even further and deleted all the previous photos of her daughter.
It's not known why Kylie has decided to remove photos of her daughter from her profile, but given that she has previously expressed an interest in having a quiet life, maybe she's trying to take some of the heat off of her young family?
