Many people believe Kylie Jenner doesn’t get the kind of credit that she deserves. That’s because all her critics see is a member of the Kardashian family who does what she’s expected to... be a reality television star and social media celebrity. But can anyone really blame her? It’s the world that she was born into, and the only world that she really knows.
With that being said, Kylie is a little different than her siblings. For one, she doesn’t talk about all of her dirty laundry in public. She keeps quiet. She values her privacy. And second, she’s a different kind of mother. Sure, all of her fans were shocked after reports indicated that she was pregnant with her first child last year. But Kylie managed to turn around what could have been a difficult situation and made the best out of it. Unlike the rest of her family, there’s no drama. At least, not any that people know of.
We’ve got 20 reasons why Kylie Jenner should get more credit that she gets from her fans and her critics, at least when it comes to her role as a mom. Let us know what you think!
20 She Doesn’t Flaunt Her Baby On Social Media Everyday
For a lot of fans and social media followers, Kylie Jenner’s Instagram account looks more like a fashion book than anything else. And while she does show off photos of her daughter Stormi here and there (after all, you need to give your audience what they want) she doesn’t do it in a very obnoxious way. Kylie is very selective about the photos she allows the public to see and doesn’t post them on a regular basis. As a matter of fact, she rarely shows her baby’s face in the pics, too. She knows how trolls operate, and she doesn’t want them to get the best of her or her daughter.
19 She kept her Pregnancy very private
“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,” she said, according to People. “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.”
18 She’s More Mature Than People Give Her Credit For
Now, this can be up for debate, but Kylie is actually much more mature than people give her credit for. She’s not the kind of person to make decisions without thinking about it several times over. Kylie said on Instagram back in February, “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.”
17 She Protects Her Daughter
Kylie Jenner has been doing what she does long enough to know how to play the celebrity game right. That’s why she’s determined to protect her daughter, her life, and her image. But that doesn’t mean she’s going to shield her away altogether. She knows Stormi will inevitably grow up different. As far as how she came up with Stormi’s name, Kylie said, “I really don’t know how we thought of Storm. Her dad insisted it was him, but I feel like it was me. And that kind of just stuck with us. And then I didn’t really like just Storm—I didn’t feel like that was her name. So then it became Stormi. And it just stuck. I feel like there were a lot of other names that I might have even liked better, to be honest, but I feel like Stormi picked her own name, like it was just her name.”
16 She’s Not Rushing Into Marriage
While some people think that Kylie Jenner might have rushed things when it came to her pregnancy and motherhood (which is something no one will never know), there’s one thing that at least everyone can agree on: she’s not rushing into marriage. Some people think that by now there would have been a huge rock on Kylie’s finger from her baby daddy, Travis Scott. But that hasn’t happened. Now, what’s in store for their future remains to be seen. Anything can happen. Kylie can easily get married in secret and no one would know anything about it, including her family.
15 She Protects Her Assets
With that being said, one of the reasons why Kylie Jenner is in no rush to make any hasty decisions is because she has so much at stake. She has to protect her assets in more ways than one, if you catch our drift. Plus, her mother is Kris Jenner. She’s known as one of the most successful if not also a shrew and ruthless businesswomen in the entertainment world. She’s not going to let anyone touch empire or think they can have a piece of her cake and eat it, too. At least, not on her watch. There won’t be a wedding without Kris’ approval.
14 She Is Aware That What She Does Is Part Of Her Business
At this point, Kylie Jenner knows that she has two options in her life right now. She can continue doing what she’s doing or she could quit being a celebrity and a television star, cold turkey. But she knows that she’s too young for the latter. She’s got so many years ahead of her, and that’s why she’s aware that what she’s doing now is all part of the business of being a celebrity. That’s why she gives her fans a small glimpse of her life as a mother, but not too much. She’s much more protective of her personal life than ever before.
13 Stormi Is Not Becoming Another North (Publicity Wise)
After Kim Kardashian gave birth to her daughter North West, there was no doubt that the little girl became the new star of the Kardashian family. Everyone wanted a little glimpse of North. But when it comes to Stormi, she just doesn’t get the same publicity that her cousin has. That’s because Kylie has managed to shield her away from the spotlight and is very selective about what she shares and doesn’t share with the public and her fans. Some people would even go as far as saying that she’s adopted an anti-Kim Kardashian approach when it comes to her family and the media.
12 She Wants To Raise Her Baby Outside The Celebrity World
Right now Kylie’s raising her little family inside her multi-million dollar mansion in Calabasas, California. But this might not be the same place she will be ten years from now. She’s got much smaller plans for her, her daughter, and Travis Scott. She wants to move as far away from the spotlight as she can. “I would love to have a family and build a home with a farm in Malibu Canyon and just have my kids and throw away my phone,” she confessed to Elle UK in 2015. “Just really, like, live my life and not do this anymore.”
11 She Doesn’t Talk About Motherhood
Unlike so many other celebrity moms in the entertainment business, Kylie doesn’t use every single interview as an opportunity to talk about motherhood. But when she does, she’s very careful with her words. Although Kylie did have this to say to E! News, “Everyone says you change completely when you become a mom, but I really feel the same, just better. So I don’t know what really has completely changed my world, besides her, of course. But I feel like it’s only gotten better. You’re less selfish—and I actually enjoy changing diapers. It’s really satisfying. To make her clean again. And I don’t know, the whole thing is really… it’s like such an amazing experience.”
10 She’s More Confident
Kylie Jenner has always been a very confident woman but now that she’s a mother, that confidence is shining in more ways than one. Kylie told Vogue Australia, “I feel like having a daughter, and thinking about beauty in the future, has definitely changed me, and I feel like it has made me love myself more and accept everything about me. Even my ears, I always felt like they stuck out too far, and she [Stormi] has the same ears as me and so now I love my ears. It’s just having a different outlook on life so I can pass that on to her."
9 She’s Not Partying Like She Used To
She’s done a great job of proving her critics wrong, at least when it comes to her maturity. When Kylie got pregnant, a lot of people made the assumption that she would be the kind of person who would continue partying it up in Hollywood every weekend. But that hasn’t been the case at all. While she does have certain obligations to attend certain events, she only does it for the paycheck. Otherwise, Kylie spends every free moment she has at home with her baby girl and her baby daddy. She’s realized that they are the two most important people in her life.
8 She Doesn’t Parent Like Her Sisters
By now, everyone has realized that the Kardashian and Jenner sisters raise their families very differently. Kourtney is very organic. Kim insists that her children are homeschooled and Khloe is the one who is most hands-on. But when it comes to Kylie, she doesn’t parent like her sisters and she probably doesn’t take much advice from them, either. Kylie does things her way, regardless of what anyone has to say about it. With that being said, as a mom, she knows it’s a learning process, every step of the way, and she’s most definitely not afraid to admit that either.
7 She Has A Game Plan For Her Future
Say what you will about Kylie Jenner, but she does think about her future and she most certainly has a game plan for it. She’s not someone who lives on a day-to-day basis. For years she’s been dreaming about a family of her own, and how she plans on raising her children, too. You can’t say that about a lot of girls her age or status for that matter. According to Romper, Kylie has said, “When I look to the far future and decide to have kids, I need to have a million girls. Ten years from now—in 2025—I hope I have a kid.”
6 She Doesn’t Want To Be A Long-Term Celebrity
Kylie has made it no secret that what she’s doing now is only on a short-term basis. Being a reality television star and social media celebrity is not something that she wants to do or be for the rest of her life. She wants to focus on raising a family instead and she doesn’t want to do it when it’s too late and that’s why she’s already thinking about the future. “I feel like 30's too late [for a kid],” the social media stunner told Caitlyn Jenner in a January 2016 KUWTK episode. “Every psychic said I'm only gonna have two kids.”
5 She’s Focused On Health Now
While there’s no doubt that Kylie’s appearance has always been very important for her, she’s now focusing on something else: her health. She wants to be fit and she wants to eat right, too. Kylie said in her podcast, “I’m finding I have to change my style a little because nothing in my closet fits me from before…[I’ve] planned my first workout on Monday. I really want to get my core back. I feel like I have fake abs now, it’s just like, genetics. But I want real abs. I know I can have a super fit body. And just for my health — I want to do this. I want to feel good.”
4 She wants Stormi to have A Normal Childhood
If there is one thing that Kylie Jenner wants for her daughter Stormi, it’s to make sure that her daughter will not only grow up happy, healthy, and safe, but have something she never had while growing up: a normal childhood. She sees what the celebrity life is all about and the pros and cons of it. As much as her celebrity status has afforded her the lifestyle that she has now, it’s not all peaches and roses. She doesn’t want Stormi to be bullied or slammed in the same way that she has been treated by everyone in the media and gossip blogs.
3 She Doesn’t Act Like A Teen Mom
A lot of people assumed that just because Kylie is such a younger mother, she would act like a teen mom. But that hasn’t been the case at all. Kylie told Vogue Australia, “I don’t think my life has changed since becoming a mum: I think the way I look at life has changed since becoming a mum. I think more of the future. I used to live each day as it came, and now I look at the future more. I actually feel like I love myself more after I had Stormi. And I’m trying to be … I mean, I’m already a positive person, but just having fun, being positive.”
2 Her Inner Circle Keeps Quiet
You’d think by now that someone from Kylie Jenner’s inner circle would have something to say about what goes on behind closed doors at both the Jenner and Kardashian households. But so far, that hasn’t happened. In fact, it seems as though Kris Jenner has done a very good job at making sure that their daughters’ friends and inner circles keep quiet about their day-to-day affairs. Even if something does happen behind the scenes, the public doesn’t know about it. The family’s bubble is protected, and from within most likely. Kylie can rest easy knowing her friends won’t rat her out.
1 There’s No Baby Daddy Drama
Last but not least, there’s no baby daddy drama coming from Kylie Jenner or anyone in her camp. Sure, there were rumors that Stormi looked a little too much like Kylie’s bodyguard, Tim Chung, which he vehemently denied. And there were even rumors suggesting that the baby looked a little like Kylie’s ex, Tyga. Of course, people will say what they want to say but for now, it seems as though Kylie and baby daddy Travis Scott are rock solid. But watch this space. Anything can happen at any time! We have a feeling that there’s so much more to come from Kylie and Stormi.
