When you think of successful celebrities who also have kids, your mind immediately jumps to the Kardashians, but more specifically Kylie Jenner. This influencer and young entrepreneur has over 245 million followers on Instagram and a net worth of 700 million dollars, making her one of the most famous people on the planet right now. In 2018, Kylie Jenner gave birth to her first child, Stormi Webster, at 20 years old.
Previously to her childbirth, Kylie Jenner took the initiative to be very secretive about her pregnancy and the process that came with it. She adopted a “privacy please” policy where she was very strict about posting any pictures of Stormi, her daughter. She even dialed down her presence on social media, and it is now known that this was due to the pregnancy.
When Kylie Jenner gave birth, there was inevitable controversy about her parenting. She got multiple hate comments about just using Stormi as an accessory for Instagram pictures, after posting pictures together with Stormi. Surely, this is a prime example of family life and career overlapping, causing evident challenges for Jenner. The first challenge is adapting to circumstances and raising Stormi in a private setting where everything is overpublicized. It is in Kylie’s hands to provide Stormi with a “normal” childhood and base it more around memories and less about money. Along with giving your child a “normal” life, Kyile also had to run her cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, and uphold her social status by being active on social media. Surely, it’s a lot to handle.
Many people also emphasized that Stormi is in an extremely fortunate position because of being born into a wealthy family, and how it gives her an immense advantage in life. However, if Kylie is not there to parent and share her wisdom with her daughter, then this might be a major problem for when Stormi grows up and matures, and is in a position where she becomes independent.
As you can see, there is definitely a hidden reality of celebrities who have kids. It is important to limit the hate comments and judgements, and take a step back to assess the challenges of the situation. It is equally important to put yourself into the shoes of the celebrities and imagine how busy their lives get. It’s important to remember that everyone has unspoken troubles in their lives, no matter if you are just a kid or a successful influencer, so use your words to spread kindness instead of hostility, and love instead of hate.
