She explained: “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.”
While many have assumed the secrecy was part of a money-making TV or magazine deal, she insisted that’s not the case.
“There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned,” she wrote, saying her primary concern has always been the well-being of her baby. “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.”
“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 continued.
“My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing,” Jenner added. “I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst.”
