Kylie Jenner Is Reportedly "Very Self-Conscious" of Her Changing Body During Pregnancy
That might be the reason she's been staying out of the spotlight.
Multiple sources confirmed Kylie Jenner's pregnancy with rapper Travis Scott nearly two months ago, but the makeup mogul has more or less stayed out of the spotlight since. (Related: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Hire a Surrogate for Their Third Baby)
While the young couple is reportedly elated to start a family together, a source told People that Kylie will continue to lie low and stay close to her friends and sisters. "She wants to reveal things on her own terms but she's, of course, having fun teasing everyone," the source said. (See: The hints Kylie has been leaving on social media: the stream of pink Snapchats and the giant diamond ring she flashed while leaving Kim's baby shower, giving rise to engagement rumors.) "She knows all the attention is on her and her baby bump," the source continued. "But she won't share until she wants to."
But like a lot of new moms, Kylie has also been struggling with body image. "Her body is changing and she's very self-conscious about it," the source told People.
Learning to accept your changing body during pregnancy is one thing, but doing it while being in the spotlight is a challenge of its own. Fitness influencer Emily Skye, for instance, had to stand up for herself after haters thought they knew what was best for her pregnancy. So it's totally understandable that Kylie is avoiding the public eye as she gets accustomed to her body on her own. (Related: What It's Like to Have an Eating Disorder During Pregnancy)
The reality star has yet to confirm the pregnancy herself, but Kylie is said to be expecting a baby girl in February.
