Ahead of yesterday’s Super Bowl game, Keeping up with the Kardashians star Kylie Jenner announced the arrival of her daughter. Kylie gave birth to her baby girl with Travis Scott on February 1st and shared a heartfelt message to her fans explaining why she kept her pregnancy a secret (and it wasn’t because she was Kim‘s surrogate as some speculated). She also shared a video of her pregnancy journey, featuring her close friends sharing their thoughts along the way. After watching the video, former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo decided to weigh in with her two cents on a twenty year having a baby.
Kylie’s message to fans on Instagram was posted yesterday afternoon. She shared, “I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. 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.”
She then gushed, “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. 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.”
After watching the video (see it below), Dina Manzo congratulated Kylie on the birth of her daughter, but cautioned others in the same note. Dina Tweeted out: “Congrats Kylie on your baby girl…but maybe think about putting out a “don’t try this at home” kinda thing for your very young fans that look up to you. Having a baby at 20 is not all silk PJ’s & flower walls~Most kids don’t have the $ and support you’re fortunate enough to have.”
Do you think Dina needed to add that bit of advice in there? It’s not as if Kylie was glorifying teen pregnancy. Should Dina have minded her own business? Or was it wise to speak out and hope that other young girls didn’t get the wrong idea about having babies at a young age when you’re not as rich as the KarJenners?
