Kylie Jenner Wanted a Baby but Her Family Thinks She Is ‘Very Naive’ and ‘Too Young’ to Start a Family: Source

Posted on

Kylie Jenner may be “so happy” to be pregnant with her first child, but some members of the KarJenner clan have expressed concern about the makeup mogul, who only just turned 20 in August, becoming a mother.

“Kylie is very naive,” the insider says, recounting the family’s worries. “Spending time with other people’s kids is obviously completely different than being a mom 24/7. Kylie of course has no idea about all the hard work and sleepless nights.”

The source explains the doubts felt by Jenner’s family were first raised when she was dating on-again, off-again boyfriend Tyga, from whom she split in April.

“With Tyga, whenever things were good, Kylie said she wanted a baby,” says the source. “Between spending lots of time with her nieces and nephews, and being around Tyga’s son [4-year-old King Cairo], she claimed she was ready. Her family would beg her to protect herself. They were very concerned.”

“They still think Kylie is too young to have a baby,” the insider says.

Another source told PEOPLE that Kris Jenner was “shocked” by her youngest daughter’s baby news but that she ultimately wants what is best for her.

“It definitely took some getting used to,” the source said. “But Kylie has always been very headstrong, she’s always wanted to do her own thing despite what Kris says. Of course Kris just wants the best for her daughter and loves and supports her no matter what.”

On Friday, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE the news that Kylie, 20, is expecting a girl in February with her new boyfriend Travis Scott, 25.

“They started telling friends a few weeks ago,” a source said of the Life of Kylie star and her rapper boyfriend. “The family has known for quite some time. She is really excited and so is Travis.”

Another source close to the family told PEOPLE: “It is an unexpected but completely amazing turn of events that she could not be more excited or thrilled about.”

“Everyone is overjoyed for her,” the source said. “This is the happiest she’s ever been.”

Another insider said Scott began telling friends about the pregnancy in July. “He was so excited he couldn’t keep it in,” says the insider. “He’s been so affectionate and protective of Kylie since they found out. He can’t wait to be a dad.”

The insider added Kylie was worried people would find out she was pregnant before she was ready to share the news, so she “started posting old photos of herself on social media” that flaunted her flat stomach.
