Is Kylie Jenner keeping her pregnancy under wraps because she doesn't want people to make fun of her pregnant body?
According to a new report, the 20-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and lip kit entrepreneur is keeping her baby bump to herself in an effort to avoid the harsh criticism she could potentially receive from her fans and haters.
“Kylie is living in a self-imposed jail because she’s terrified of getting fat-shamed the way Kim [Kardashian, 37] was when she was pregnant with North [West, 4],” a source explained to Hollywood Life on Jan. 7.
When Kardashian was pregnant with her first child, she was thrust into the spotlight for allegedly overeating and gaining far more weight than what is typically normal for an expectant mother. She was then seen on the cover of magazines who suggested she couldn't stop eating while pregnant with her second child, son Saint West, 2.
Young Kylie's Pregnancy Scare
“Kylie was a teenager then,” the source noted, speaking of Kardashian’s first pregnancy, “and it made a huge impact on her. She’s got major anxiety about it and it’s not a case of her not loving being pregnant. It’s more of a phobia. She knows how harsh people are and she just feels too fragile right now to deal with any sort of body shaming that she’s sure will happen."
Although not much is known about Jenner's pregnancy, she and boyfriend Travis Scott are rumored to be expecting a baby girl sometime in the coming weeks.
As she reportedly awaits the birth of her first child, Jenner and her boyfriend have been targeted with a number of shocking rumors, including reports of a breakup and others that claim they will soon wed.
Jenner and Scott began their relationship in early 2017 after Jenner split from Tyga after a few years of dating. Then, just months later, Jenner began facing rumors of a pregnancy and as those rumors continued, the longtime reality star began to live her life away from the cameras and the prying eyes of the paparazzi.
