Some four months after giving birth to baby Stormi, fervent fan of publicity, Kylie Jenner has abruptly stopped sharing photos of her young daughter from Instagram, also deleting old photos in which she shared her face.
In a photo shared on the platform on Sunday, Jenner posed with her daughter, cropping the photo in such a way that only her tiny eye was visible to followers.
“I spy with my little eye…” she wrote.
After few followers asked Jenner why she removed her daughter from the photo, Jenner wrote:
“Yeah I cut my baby out. I’m not sharing photos of my girl right now.”
While the reality star and mum-of-one has left a handful of photos of her daughter remaining on her account, none show her face.
So, naturally, her fans began to question the curious timing of the decisive privacy measures. Why, after four months, did she decide to stop sharing for a little while?
Jenner is well known for the occasional decision to pull back on sharing her life with the world, most notably when she fell pregnant.
In February, she announced the birth of her daughter after refusing to confirm speculation for many months of her pregnancy.
“I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys [sic]. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.
“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.”
Of course, this still doesn’t explain why not sharing photos of Stormi wasn’t a consistent decision rather than a sudden one.
Some have speculated Jenner may be growing tired of the incessant comparisons between her daughter and her bodyguard, with many (falsely) speculating that he may be the father of her child.
Regardless of her motives, perhaps you can’t blame a 20-year-old mother-of-one with a remarkable following to choose to pull back from the limelight every so often.
