As of Sunday, reality star and makeup mogul, Kylie Jenner, says she will no longer be sharing photos of her daughter, Stormi. The news comes after Jenner recently uploaded a selfie cropping out baby Stormi’s face.When Instagram user @coraelee noted Kylie had “cut her baby out” of the photo, the new mom curtly replied, “Yeah I cut my baby out. I’m not sharing photos of my girl right now.”
In my opinion, I think it’s great Kylie has decided to keep Stormi off social media for the time being, since Kylie’s life is already so open for the world to see, and having Stormi off the radar is a chance for her to have some parts of her life private. Though Kylie decided to delete some of her daughter’s photos off Instagram, she didn’t delete all of them—just the ones where you can clearly see her face.
This isn’t the first time, Kylie has made the decision to keep certain aspects of her life private. Fans will recall how silent she remained about her pregnancy, up until after the birth of her daughter when she then opened up about her pregnancy journey in a YouTube video.
In 2015, Kylie also opened up about balancing social media and privacy when she tweeted, “my reality is.. I only show people what I want them to see. No one knows what goes on in my day to day but me & who I share my moments with.”

I applaud Kylie for going private with Stormi because there are definitely some things you just want to keep from the world—at least momentarily.
