Kylie Jenner Is Opening Up About Her Tough Post-Partum Experience

Kylie Jenner's second pregnancy was much unlike her first, which was shrouded in secrecy. This time around, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan confirmed that she was expecting her second child with partner Travis Scott in September 2021, per Seventeen. The happy couple — who are also parents to daughter Stormi — appeared in a sweet video posted to Instagram, which featured highlights from their journey, including a doctor's appointment and the moment they told momager Kris Jenner of their pregnancy. 

The Kylie Cosmetics founder confirmed that she and Scott had welcomed their baby boy on February 2, 2022, in another Instagram post that showed Stormi clutching his tiny hand. In an Instagram story, the baby boy's name was later revealed to be Wolf Webster (via Seventeen). According to People, the happy couple had previously chosen the name together, but Kylie wanted to ensure she truly loved it before announcing it to the world. Ever since Wolf made his debut on social media, the new mom has largely stayed out of the spotlight, per Elle. Judging by her latest revelation, it seems that Kylie has been finding the first few weeks of being a mother-of-two to be quite tough, which may explain her absence. 

Kylie Jenner wants other moms to feel less alone

In March 2022, Kylie Jenner opened up about her postpartum struggles on social media, admitting that it "has not been easy." Instead, "This experience for me personally has been a little harder than with my daughter," she shared on Instagram stories (via People). Acknowledging the difficulties of giving birth, Kylie also pointed to the fact that while everything might seem perfect on the surface, it's a tough transition (even for her). The reality star — whose new Hulu show "The Kardashians" premieres April 2022 — also revealed she was finding it tough to motivate herself to work out. Thankfully, "I'm here, and I'm feeling better. So you got this," she added. That said, the makeup mogul additionally noted in a follow-up Instagram story that "it's OK not to be OK." She went on to encourage other moms to be kinder to themselves, since it's hard enough to give birth without the added pressure of having to immediately bounce back.

Shortly after Kylie and Travis Scott welcomed Wolf, a source told E! News that they have been working hard to adjust to their new normal. "They had their routine down with Stormi, so they are now having to get back into the swing of things, like having to be up at all hours of the night and accommodating two kids at the same time," the insider shared. "They are adjusting, and Travis has been helping Kylie a lot."
