Kylie Jenner Just Opened Up About Her Postpartum Journey
Kylie Jenner is getting real about her postpartum journey — and like many moms, it hasn't been easy for her. On Tuesday, the makeup mogul revealed she had reached the six-week post-birth milestone and took to her Instagram Story to tell her 318 million followers about the experience.
"I just want to say to my postpartum moms that postpartum has not been easy. It's not been easy, it's very hard," she said. "This experience for me, personally, has been a little harder than with my daughter."
She continued saying that not everything is as it seems on social media and that despite what followers might think, she's actually been struggling. "It's not easy mentally, physically, spiritually ... it's just crazy," she said. "I didn't want to just get back to life without saying that, because I think we can look on the internet and for other moms going through it right now, we can go on the internet and it might look a lot easier for other people and, like, the pressure on us, but it hasn't been easy for me."
She added some words of encouragement for other new moms, saying, "It's been hard. And I just wanted to say that. I didn't even think I'd make it to this work out today, but I'm here and I'm feeling better, so you've got this."
On the next Story, she concluded her update by telling her fans that "it's OK not to be OK." "Once I realized that, I was putting some pressure on myself, and I just keep reminding myself, I made a whole human, a beautiful healthy boy, and we have to stop putting pressure on ourselves to be back — not even physically, just mentally, after birth. So yeah, just sending some love. I love you guys."
Prior to her candid message, Kylie shared a boomerang while walking on the treadmill, writing, "6 weeks postpartum" with white heart and praying emoji. Typically, the six-week mark is when new moms can be cleared for exercise.
