Much like the Calabasas version of Punxsutawney Phil, last weekend, Kylie Jenner emerged from her hidey-hole, looked around, and made a decision about the months to come. Unlike the world's most famous groundhog, however, the Lip Kit maven didn't see her shadow and, apparently, is ready for a springtime reawakening of her public presence. After nine long months of hiding from her fans and paparazzi alike, Jenner has reportedly made the decision to return to her rightful place in the spotlight, with her newborn daughter in tow.
"[Kylie] is relieved that her baby girl is here so she could share her 'secret.' She is looking forward to being out and about more," a source told People this week. "She wanted her pregnancy to be low-key, but she misses parts of her old life." The insider continued, "For now, she wants to rest and bond with her baby. But she is also excited about eventually getting back in shape and going on dates with Travis [Scott]. She says that she is ready to return to a more normal life." The source didn't elaborate, but it can safely be assumed that this "more normal life" will include more selfies, more outings in public places, and more impromptu Snapchat Q&As.
On Sunday, the 20-year-old simultaneously announced the birth of her daughter and explained her decision to retreat into the shadows for the duration of her pregnancy. "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 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," Jenner wrote in an Instagram post. "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."
