When the reality star and beauty entrepreneur returns to social media, sources believe she'll be extremely open about motherhood.
While the buzz that Kylie Jenner is expecting her first baby with rapper boyfriend Travis Scott has reached a fever pitch, the reality star and beauty entrepreneur has been flying under the radar. Fans have gotten accustomed to a steady diet of mostly headshots and makeup vids -- and perhaps the odd full-length shot in which Kylie's mid-section has been strategically concealed. But sources tell ET that say that her followers can look forward to Kylie's social media return -- and perhaps even a whole new perspective as a "mommy blogger."
"Kylie has been chilling at home for the most part and just living her best life. She has really enjoyed this time away from the spotlight. It’s the first time she can remember in her entire life not being followed by cameras and she’s just trying to enjoy this privacy," ET's source shared. They went onto explain that once Kylie reemerges, "she's definitely not going to deny that she's had a baby, or continue to evade questions about it all."
"This isn’t a permanent thing," the source shared. “As soon as the baby is born, she will make an announcement and introduce the baby to her fans. She will also address the fact that she went "dark" on social media and in the public."
According to the insider, the proud mom-to-be going to announce her child's birth on Instagram -- and not only will she express her pride around becoming a mom, but she's "excited to take on that role as part of her identity." "Yes, she will release a photo and yes, she will acknowledge the baby. She’s excited to continue to be her authentic self, and that will soon mean being a mother and sharing that with her fans,” the source noted.

Based on this report, W magazine concluded that Kylie's going to "reinvent herself in the most unlikely of ways" and "will reportedly return to social media as a 'mommy blogger.'" Though only time will tell if that label is a bit of a stretch; perhaps she'll be incorporating this new chapter of motherhood into her existing brand. That would be very much in line with what her sisters have done as they've had L.O.s. (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West released a children's clothing line last year, and mom-to-be Khloe Kardashian is designing maternity wear.)
Nonetheless, fans will undoubtedly be psyched whenever and however Kylie makes her big announcement and shares details of her new #momlife!
