Reality TV star Kylie Jenner, youngest of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” adult siblings, announced Sunday she had given birth to a daughter three days earlier.

“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” Jenner, 20, posted on her social media accounts after having largely kept her pregnancy private. “I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. 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.”

She went on to say, “Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life changing experience I’ve had in my entire life and I’m actually going to miss it. I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn’t wait to share this blessing. I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst!”

Separately, Jenner posted an 11 1/2-minute video produced by friend Tyler Ross, opening with home-video footage involving her own birth. After this, Jenner’s friend Jordyn Woods addresses the baby to talk about Jenner and, without mentioning his name, the baby’s father, rapper Travis Scott, who is seen throughout the video. Jenner has not otherwise publicly acknowledged Scott’s paternity.

After more home-video footage and family scenes, the screen goes black and gives audio only of the new baby’s birth. Finally, we see part of the infant and the side of Jenner’s head before a text screen comes up titled “To Our Daughter” and specifying the child was born Thursday at 4:43 p.m., weighing 8 pounds, 9 ounces.

Scott, 25, tweeted, “2.1.18. 4 ever. New rager in town.!!!” Jenner’s mother, Kris Jenner, 62, wrote on Twitter, “God is SO good!! I am so excited and thrilled to welcome another precious baby girl to our beautiful, ever growing family. We are blessed beyond belief!”

None of the posts revealed the child’s name.

Jenner’s half-sisters, reality TV stars Kim Kardashian, 37, and Khloé Kardashian, 33, also tweeted congratulations, as did sister Kendall Jenner, 22. Eldest sibling Kourtney Kardashian, 37, and brother Rob Kardashian, 30, had not commented on social media as of Sunday evening, nor had Jenner’s father, Caitlyn Jenner.
