My, my, today has been quite eventful, hasn’t it? The Super Bowl LII (that’s “52,” for those who didn’t take Latin in high school) is upon us, sure, but one of the most talked-about events of the month, if not the year so far, is that Kylie Jenner gave birth to a baby girl. But that story wasn’t buzzy enough for the Kardashian-Jenner bunch — they picked today as the perfect day to drop photos of Jenner pregnant alongside 33-year-old Khloé Kardashian, who has experienced a pregnancy almost as buzzed-about as Kylie’s, and to post the first photo of Chicago West, the newborn daughter of Kim Kardashian who definitely had a pregnancy as highly discussed as Kylie’s.
Jenner, 20, has been notoriously out of sight with regard to the press since her pregnancy was initially announced in September. Given the family’s almost trademark ability to wait until they’re 100 percent ready to release personal news to the press, this should come as no surprise, but Jenner’s lengths to avoid public appearances — no matter how expected — have been noted by fans and the media alike. (Remember how literally everyone, our editors included, expected Jenner to appear on the Kardashian-Jenner Christmas card in December, only to be completely disappointed and stumped?)
There’s nothing wrong with wanting your space, particularly while pregnant, but it nevertheless took many folks by surprise. By the time January rolled around, it was borderline shocking to see reports that Jenner had been seen out at all. And this, of course, brings us to our main event: the photo Kardashian posted of the sisters pregnant and standing side by side.

Kardashian captioned the photo on her Instagram with a sweet, sisterly message to Jenner: “Congratulations My Sweet Kylie! What a magical ride it’s been! I’ll miss you bumping along with me. Never in a million years did I think we would do this together but it’s been that much more special because of it. God is so great!! He had His plan all along! I love you little mama love big mama.”
And that’s not the last thing the sisters had to offer the news cycle today: As we noted in our earlier article regarding Jenner’s announcement, the new mom also posted this video titled “To Our Daughter” that featured a glimpse at Chicago West being placed into her aunt Kylie’s arms by Kim. Just watch it — it’s actually really adorable. Here’s a sneak peek from Jenner’s Instagram, or go to YouTube to see it in full.

So, now that we know Jenner has given birth and probably dropped tens of thousands of dollars on the kid already, perhaps the conspiracy theories surrounding her pregnancy will finally cease — I mean, maybe. I’m going to just assume that those will never go away with regard to this family, but…maybe.
