Many fans still can’t get over the shock that Kylie Jenner is expecting her first child. After all, she’s only 20 years old and she’s only been dating her baby daddy Travis Scott for a few short months. Yet she and Travis are about to embark on a journey that is going to change their lives forever. As parents, they are going to be responsible for giving all of their love and dedication to their newborn child.
And while Kylie has remained rather mum about her pregnancy, a lot of Keeping Up With The Kardashian fans couldn’t help but notice that she’s not acting pregnant the Kardashian way. As a matter of fact, she’s been treating her pregnancy nothing like her sister Kim Kardashian did when she was pregnant with her children. She’s not taking bump selfies, she’s not parading her body in front of the paparazzi and she certainly isn’t talking about it with the media.
With that being said, everyone thinks that Kylie will be a drastically different mother than Kim is. And we even see it too. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of 15 reasons why Kylie will be a better mom that Kim. Take a look below and let us know what you think!
15 Vegan Life
There’s a strong possibility that Kylie Jenner might follow in her older sister Kourtney Kardashian’s footsteps by becoming a very organic mom. She herself has recently switched over to an all-vegan diet and there’s a good chance that she might encourage her young child to live a vegan lifestyle too.
While Kim Kardashian does make sure that her children eat the very best of the best, she’s not as concerned about their diets the same way Kourtney is with her kids. As a matter of fact, both North and Saint have been photographed sweet treats in their hands before. And Kim even took North on a special visit to the ice cream museum in Los Angeles over the summer. While anything can still happen, we have a feeling that Kylie might be a little more particular about what her child eats or doesn’t eat.
14 She’s An Ambassador Of Her Own Brand
If there’s one thing that Kylie has an advantage with, it’s the fact that she’s an ambassador of her own brand. Kim Kardashian might be a household name, but she never had that luxury in her life. For Kim, she’s always had to play by the Kardashian rules. She controls her own exposure.
Since she’s basically her own boss, Kylie doesn’t have to listen to anyone’s advice or take orders from her parents for that matter. She’s been doing her own thing for years now and she might do her own thing when it comes to being a parent, too. She’ll end up making her own rules and before you know it, she’ll expect the rest of her family to abide by them whether they like it or not.
13 She’ll Look To Kourtney For Advice
There’s a chance that Kylie might skip Kim Kardashian over completely and look to their older sister Kourtney Kardashian for advice on how to raise her child. After all, Kourtney makes it no secret that she loves to raise her three children her way, regardless of what anyone might say about it. And even though she has a team of nannies to help her every step of the way, she also insists on being a hands-on mom.
Kourtney takes her kids everywhere she goes. She also makes an effort to pick out their clothes and toys, helps prepare their meals and reads bed time stories with them before bed. While we really don’t know what she does behind closed doors, Kim doesn’t look like she’s as pro-active as Kourtney is with her kids. That’s why Kylie might choose to call Kourt before she calls Kim for advice.
12 Kylie Shows More Compassion
Anyone who has ever watched at least one episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians knows that Kylie Jenner is much more compassionate about children and animals than Kim Kardashian ever was. Case in point: Kim’s adopted animals and pets keep disappearing from the show. One moment they are there, the next moment her fans find out that she’s given them to friends or back to animal shelters as she simply can’t keep up with them or take care of them for that matter.
Kylie isn’t the same way. Kylie has had plenty of dogs in her life and from what we know, takes good care of them. As a matter of fact, she was pretty surprised when her dogs Norman and Bambi had surprise puppies back in 2016. She also has an Italian greyhound and a long-haired Dachshund named Ernie.
11 She Might Be Able To Do It On Her Own
Right now, no one knows what Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s relationship status is. They’ve only been together for a few short months yet Kylie is already pregnant with their first child. She was with her ex Tyga for two years, yet she didn’t move this fast with him.
Right now everything seems to be up in the air. It doesn’t look like Travis plans on proposing to Kylie anytime soon. While they are so far committed to raising their baby together, it’s safe to say that Kylie has what it takes to raise her baby on her own, should she fall in that position. The same can’t be said about Kim Kardashian. She needs a team of people, nannies, household staff and family members to help her with her two children.
10 Kylie Won’t Put Her Kids On Display
The celebrity world is pretty surprised that Kylie so far hasn’t said much about her pregnancy. In fact, she’s barely even confirmed it to the world. Kim, in comparison, loved to talk about her pregnancy. She also loved to show off her baby bump and talk about how she felt, what she was eating, and how she was preparing for the arrival of her baby.
With that being said, there’s a chance that Kylie won’t put her baby on display the same way Kim has in the past. She won’t sell her baby photos for the highest bidder and she certainly won’t make them media celebrities and public figures the same way Kim has with her kids. It wouldn’t be surprising if Kylie didn’t show off her child at all. Of course, her fans will just have to wait and see.
9 She Was Always The Ugly Duckling
Kylie Jenner was always the ugly duckling of the Kardashian and Jenner family. For so many years, she was “tossed aside” simply because she wasn’t as willing to participate in her family’s fame-hungry ways. She didn’t share the same ideologies as her sisters as well. Of course, that all changed the moment she began her mega transformation into the social media vixen that she is today.
Since Kylie was the ignored Jenner sister, there’s a chance that she might give her baby more attention. Knowing how it feels to be the ignored child, she might put aside special time to spend with her child. She doesn’t want her baby to feel like he or she isn’t worth their mother’s attention simply because they aren’t into the limelight. She’ll be a hands-on mom, for sure.
8 She’ll Be More Protective
It’s without a doubt that Kim Kardashian has been very careful about her family’s safety and security ever since she was robbed by thieves in Paris back in September of 2016. They took millions of dollars worth of jewelry, bound and gagged her and tossed her inside a bathtub. It took Kim several months to recover from the horrifying ordeal.
A similar situation happened to Kylie Jenner as well. She was forced to lock herself in a hotel room in Miami after a deranged fan chased her through the halls. Since that incident, Kylie has been very careful about the people she comes in contact with. She loves her fans and will sometimes get close, but not too close. With that being said, there’s a possibility that she might be more protective of her children than her sister Kim. She won’t insist on having pap strolls with them throughout L.A. or snapchatting their ever move the same way Kim does.
7 Kylie Doesn’t Want To Be Famous
Kylie has made it no secret that she is one member of her family that wanted to be famous. In fact, she was never asked to be put in the position that she was in. She was put in the limelight from a very early age, even though no one really asked her for her input.
Unlike Kim, Kylie doesn’t want to be a star. But since she really didn’t have any other choice, she’s made the most of it. Still, Kylie insists that people really don’t know the real her. She once said, “People think they have a perfect idea of who you are from a four-second Snapchat video... and fake blogs, stories, magazine covers. In reality, that's not the case. Nobody knows who I am except family and my close friends.”
6 She Doesn’t Feel Pressured To Put Her Kids In The Limelight
Kylie has already said that by the time she reaches 30, she no longer wants to be a celebrity. She doesn’t want to be a public figure and she certainly doesn’t want to share details about her private life with her fans. Kylie has hinted that it will only be a matter of time before she fades away into celebrity obscurity.
Also, Kylie won’t feel as pressured to put her kids in the limelight like Kim. She’s got other plans for her and her baby’s future. She once said, “When I'm, like, 30, I want to go off the map, have a family and live in Malibu with a farm, and just raise my own chickens.” Seeing how Kylie gets what she wants, there’s a strong chance that this will happen.
5 Kylie Knows How It Feels To Be ‘The Baby’
Kylie knows how it feels to be the “baby” of her family. She’s had the role her entire life. As the youngest member of the Kardashian and Jenner family, she’s tried to keep up with the rest of her sisters. At this point it’s safe to say that they’ve been her biggest role models. What’s more, Kylie has even tried to copy her sister Kim by following in her career path. If that weren’t enough, the two women look almost identical now.
With that being said, Kylie might treat her child a little different than Kim does with her children simply because she knows how it feels the be the youngest person. She might relate to her child more than anyone else in her family, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. As the baby in her own family, it might help her create a special bond with her child.
4 Because Of Kanye, Kim Is More Scrutinized
There’s no doubt that Kim Kardashian is more scrutinized just because she’s married to one of the biggest rap stars in the world – Kanye West. As the Queen of the hip hop world (since she’s married to the self-proclaimed King), Kim knows that the world is watching her. She always has to defend herself, her marriage and worse, her parenting skills. No matter what she does, she just can’t catch a break.
Kylie doesn’t have that same kind of pressure in her life. There’s no comparing Travis Scott to Kanye West. As a matter of fact, no one even knew who Travis Scott was until he got Kylie Jenner pregnant. Kylie won’t feel pressured to have the “perfect” family the same way Kim does with Kanye. She can do her own thing, regardless of what anyone has to say about it.
3 She Might Not Confirm The Birth
Kylie is yet to confirm her pregnancy, with many speculating that she might not confirm the birth of her baby, either. As a matter of fact, reports indicate that she’s already missing from the annual Kardashian Christmas special photo. She and her baby bump are in hiding – and she has a really good reason behind it, too.
Kylie one said that people really don’t know who the real Kylie is. For her, she knows that all of her Instagram photos and Snapchats are just part of the celebrity “game.” And that’s why she might not want to make her child play that same game, too. She has said, “People have to be sensitive to - I hate using the word 'celebrities' - people in the spotlight. Because there's so much more than what you see on the cover of a magazine.”
2 She’ll Strive To Be A Perfect Mom
Because she’s a young mom, Kylie might strive to be perfect. She’ll want to do more for her kids and she’ll want to be the kind of alpha-mom that Kim never really was. She’ll want to be there for every ballet or baseball practice and she’ll want to be the one who makes her child’s school lunch every morning. That’s because she knows the world will be watching each and every move she’ll make. For Kylie, it’s been like that her entire life.
In fact, Kylie once said herself, “I feel like, growing up, I haven't had a lot of room for error - I don't have room to make mistakes. You need to make mistakes to grow and learn, but I'm just a little different because the world is watching me, every single thing I do.”
1 She Might Not Go Public
With millions of followers on social media, there’s a good chance that Kylie Jenner might not even go public with her kids. She hasn’t really gone public with her pregnancy, so who is to say that she’ll be a celebrity mom?
Kylie might be the youngest member of the Kardashian and Jenner family, but she might also be the smartest, too. She’s learning from everyone else’s mistakes and she’s certainly doing everything in her power not to repeat them. Seeing how difficult it’s been for Kim to raise her kids in the spotlight, she might decide against it. For all we know, she might not even reveal her child’s name. Her mother Kris Jenner might not be too happy about it, but at the end of the day Kylie will do what’s best for her and what’s best for her child. And that’s all that really matters.
