Kylie Jenner 'Didn't Want Her Pregnancy to Be a Circus': She's 'Very Private'

"She clearly made a conscious decision to step away from the spotlight," a source tells PEOPLE of mom-to-be Kylie Jenner, who's due in February

As Kylie Jenner prepares to welcome her first child, she’s continuing to keep a low profile.

“She clearly made a conscious decision to step away from the spotlight. Kylie didn’t want her pregnancy to be a circus,” a source tells PEOPLE of the 20-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.

“She is actually very private about certain aspects of her personal life, and staying low key has given her time to really prepare for what’s coming,” adds the insider.

Kylie’s daughter on the way, due in February, is the first child for the star and boyfriend Travis Scott. Multiple sources first confirmed the news to PEOPLE in September.

FROM COINAGE: The Lavish Lifestyle of the Kardashian Kids

Kylie and the rest of the KarJenner brood have stayed completely mum on her pregnancy, dodging questions from fans and fellow celebs like Ellen DeGeneres.

And though the expectant star didn’t pose alongside the rest of her famous family for their 2017 Christmas card, she did make an appearance at mom Kris Jenner‘s annual Christmas Eve party.

On Monday, Calvin Klein unveiled an ad featuring Kylie and all four of her sisters — Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian and fellow mom-to-be Khloé Kardashian — posing for the campaign. Kylie conceals her baby bump underneath a red-and-white quilt, as the rest of her sisters lie on top of it.
