Kylie Jenner Opens Up About Postpartum: 'It's OK To Not Be OK'
Kylie Jenner told fellow moms who recently gave birth that “it’s OK to not be OK.” She opened up about the challenges and struggles of motherhood, especially postpartum.
OK magazine said that the reality star, who welcomed her second child in February, took her thoughts to Instagram on Tuesday. After posting a story, showing her fans her workout, she shared a message on the same feature of the platform, telling her followers that “postpartum has not been easy.”
Jenner, then, described it as “crazy,” adding that it is not easy for her “mentally, physically, [and] spiritually.” She did not even think she would make it to her workout that day, although she did, and she was “feeling better” afterward.
The 24-year-old celebrity, later on, revealed that she “was putting some pressure” on herself. But, she would keep on reminding herself that she “made a whole human, a beautiful baby boy.”
Kylie Jenner, in the end, urged other mothers who are experiencing the same thing to “stop putting pressure” on themselves “to be back, not even physically, just mentally, after birth.” She consequently ended her message by saying that she was “just sending some love.”
People recalled that Kylie Jenner welcomed her second child with Travis Scott a day after the 4th birthday of their first-born daughter. She shared the news with her fans and followers on social media upon posting a black and white photo of her infant’s hand.
The publication said that a rep for the reality star confirmed the birth of her baby at the time, noting that the pair had a boy.
After posting the image on media platforms, Jenner’s family members and friends congratulated her in the comment sections. Travis Scott, also, reportedly reacted to the posts and left a series of heart emojis.
Fans and followers first learned about the second pregnancy in September. The confirmation came after netizens had theories and speculations that Kylie Jenner might announce it at the 2021 Met Gala.
Seventeen stated that the Kylie Cosmetics founder posted a heartfelt video on Instagram, showing her baby bump multiple times. The material, which, also, features the "SICKO MODE" artist and their daughter, reportedly immediately amassed over 100 million views.
The reality star had her first child with Travis Scott in 2018. They welcomed their first-born daughter nearly a year after they publicized their romance.
In October 2019, the celebrity couple took a break from their relationship. But, reports pointed out that they have remained on good terms, co-parenting their first child together.
