Kylie Jenner announced to the world that she had given birth to a baby girl on February 1st. The announcement was made on Super Bowl Sunday on Jenner’s Instagram page. Jenner’s father, the former Bruce Jenner now Caitlyn Jenner was out of the country in Ireland. A representative for Caitlyn said that Jenner was in Ireland on a work related trip, ‘however she is thrilled for Kylie, and looking forward to meeting her new granddaughter. The relationship between Caitlyn and her children has been extremely frosty since the former Olympic decathlon champion announced that she had transitioned to a woman in April of 2015.
Jenner famously had a close relationship with her four stepchildren, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian. Last month the father of six told Piers Morgan she only has contact with her two youngest children with Kris Jenner, Kylie and Kendall Jenner. Kim and her sisters said on the current season of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ that their relationship with their former step father is ‘beyond repair’. The family feels very betrayed by Caitlyn’s best selling book, ‘The Secrets Of My Life’. The family has stated publicly that many of the claims in Jenner’s book are ‘lies’.
The Kardashians’ have gone on the record, as saying that Jenner sold them out over a book. The most hurtful claims were lodged at their mother Kris Jenner, Caitlyn’s former wife of 23 years. More tension was added to the strained relationship when Jenner said that she did not approve of Kylie having a child so young, especially when she ‘was in a very unstable relationship.’ A source connected with Caitlyn told the ‘Hollywood Reporter’ that “Caitlyn planned her Ireland work trip to be around Kylie’s due date. She knew with the Kardashians at the hospital her presence there would be too much of a detraction for Kylie and everyone else.”
