As a pop culture-obsessed society, we're pretty used to being bombarded with news and images of the Kardashians and Jenners all of the time. Often it's the family members themselves who are offering up peeks into their private lives via social media and their reality shows, but then you also have the prying lenses of the paparazzi ready to catch their every move. It appears that Kylie Jenner is beginning to have a change of heart in regards to posting her private life for the world to see, well, at least when it involves her daughter Stormi.
Recently the new mama scrubbed her Instagram account clean of all photos that clearly show the little girl's face. A few images still remain of Kylie holding her daughter, but in those Stormi's face is obstructed in some way.
Why is Kylie suddenly shielding her daughter from the masses? No one is quite sure. BuzzFeed became aware of the situation when it caught their attention that the makeup mogul appeared to have cropped Stormi out of an Instagram selfie. Fans also noticed and began asking questions.
Kylie responding by admitting that, yes, she did cut her daughter out of the photo and she won't be posting any pictures of her any time in the near future.
Many of the comments support the reality star's decision to keep Stormi's face out of the spotlight.
"Some things should remain personal," wrote one fan. "Life can't always be a public display. Good job Kylie."
Back in 2015, Kylie did tell Elle UK that she would quit social media once she started a family of her own, which she anticipated doing at an early age. Fortunately for her fans, she seemed to backtrack on that plan after giving birth to Stormi, despite remaining very private about her pregnancy.
"Once I have a kid I'm not going to be on Instagram," she said. "You know, I'll probably delete my Instagram and just… I don't know, live life."
At that time she toyed around with the idea of becoming a bit of a recluse, building a farm in Malibu Canyon where she could live a quiet, peaceful life. For now, however, she continues to build her Kylie Cosmetics empire and share behind-the-scenes photos of her daily happenings...only without Stormi.
