On Tuesday, Kylie – who has daughter Stormi, three, with Travis – drove fans wild as she finally revealed there’s another baby on the way with a cute video montage of intimate family moments.
Fans were treated to a behind-the-scenes look at the reality star’s life over the last few months, from uasounds at her doctor’s office to special moments with Travis, 30, when they first got the positive pregnancy test result.
Now the big news is confirmed, we take a look back at all the ways Kylie kept her baby news secret.
One of the biggest clues that Kylie gave fans last month was that she had a very low-key 24th birthday compared to previous years.
The billionaire makeup mogul got together with family and close friends for a brunch at home, followed by a painting class and a cocktail evening.
And all of the photos she shared online gave only a glimpse of treats and the cute decor, no guests, hinting that she was trying to conceal her baby bump.
Last year, despite it being mid-pandemic, Kylie celebrated her 23rd at Nobu with a bunch of friends.
In 2019 she partied on a yacht and shared dozens of photos for weeks after the event.

This time round, surprisingly, Kylie stayed home. And more surprisingly, none of Kylie’s inner circle shared photos of her or guests on her birthday.
One suspicious fan tweeted at the time: “Kylie Jenner is for sureee pregnant again. There’s no way it’s her birthday and I don’t see one photo with her friends,”
Kylie finally shared footage of her birthday party this week, as she looked blissfully happy celebrating with her family, Travis and Stormi as a birthday cake was brought out.
THE BIRTHDAY OUTFIT CLUE
For her birthday outfit, the beauty mogul shared a snap of herself in a skintight green knit crop top teamed with a matching midi-skirt.
In the snaps she shared on Instagram, Kylie posed in the tight outfit, showing off her flat stomach and holding a glass of champagne.
However, eagle-eyed fans spotted that her pastel pink manicure did not match the green-tipped manicure on her hands seen in a different photo from the same day.
The picture, posted by Kim, 40, showed a row of drinks, each tagged with Kylie’s nearest and dearest. Kylie could be seen tagged as she went to pick up one of the cocktail creations, showing off a different nail design.
Fans started to speculate that the green dress snaps were throwbacks and not taken on her birthday at all.

Fans of the Kylie Cosmetics mogul also noticed that her friends and family made several mentions of “baby” while paying tribute to the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
One internet sleuth tweeted: “Everyone mentioning ‘baby’ or ‘kid’ in their happy birthday posts… Kylie Jenner’s definitely pregnant.”
Indeed, Khloe Kardashian referred to Kylie as her “baby girl” and shared a photo of her pregnant with daughter Stormi, while Kim called her “Kylie baby”.
Kendall described Kylie as her “baby sister” in her Instagram Stories tribute and her best friend Stassie Karanikolaou said “twins 4 life” and “little babies”.
DITCHING THE DIET
In recent weeks Kylie was indulging in huge plates of food and enjoying plenty of baking.
Following her birthday celebrations the reality star shared snaps of a plate of fried calamari and fries topped with mayonnaise.
She also showed off a pasta dish, a pie with her name on the top and a rack of cookies.

NO BOOZE AT THE REUNION
Pregnancy rumors first emerged during the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, which aired in June.
Fans noticed that Kylie – who is known to love tequila – didn’t drink the shot she was given of sister Kendall’s 818 brand tequila.
At the filmed event Kylie turned her back on the camera to down the shot – but the glass was still full.
The reunion was filmed back in April which means the star might be at least five months pregnant.

SUSHI WITH NO FISH
Fans spotted that Kylie, who is a huge fan of sushi, shared some photos of her favorite lunch but with one big difference – the rolls appeared to have no raw fish, only avocado and cucumber.
Pregnant women are advised to avoid raw fish, as well as alcohol.

SWEATERS & THROWBACKS
Despite it being mid-summer, Kylie recently shared some photos of her wearing baggy sweaters and sweatpants.
She traded in her usual tight dresses for a matching white sweat set of a baggy top and loose-fitting joggers.
In other selfies the mom-of-one shared, she could be seen flashing her flat tummy, but once again, internet sleuths spotted her sporting the same french manicure from over 15 weeks ago.

“I heard a theory that she already pre-took all her pictures and has planned the posting of them all,” the web detective said.
Another added: “I also think it was suspicious she didn’t go to Miami for Travis’ Rolling Loud which you know she would normally do.”
And a third wrote: “Omg I was wondering why she hasn’t posted new nails in a while.”
THE TRAVIS REUNION
In June Kylie made a point of showing off her romance with the Sicko Mode rapper, which surprised fans as the on-off couple are usually so private.
The couple split in October 2019, but made it very clear that things are back on, just around the time baby number two pregnancy rumors began.
They took a trip to New York City together and posed for multiple cosy snaps on social media together, along with Stormi, three.
It was the last time the star has been photographed in public.
Fans have also seen that Kylie has been very quiet on YouTube, posting only one video over the last five months.
Kylie became pregnant with her first child Stormi in 2017 and gave birth to the tot in February 2018.
The reality star managed to keep her pregnancy a secret for the whole nine months and shocked fans with her baby announcement.
She said at the time: “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.”
