‘I didn’t expect it to happen like this. But it’s beautiful,’ the model says of Kylie embracing motherhood before her.
Model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner is still coming to terms with the fact her little sister Kylie is a mom at 20, confessing it’s “a bit weird.”
The make-up maven welcomed daughter Stormi with her rapper boyfriend Travis Scott (II) in February, having fallen pregnant just weeks after they first started dating last spring (17).
Kendall admits watching Kylie Jenner embrace motherhood has been a strange experience, but she couldn’t be more in love with her new niece.
“It’s obviously a bit weird that your little sister is having a baby before you,” she told Elle magazine. “I didn’t expect it to happen like this. But it’s beautiful.”
In fact, Kendall believes the life change has actually strengthened the siblings’ bond.
“It’s brought us closer together,” she shared with guest interviewer Lana Del Rey. “We’ve always been very close, but we would butt heads all the time. This [motherhood] has made her a bit more loving toward me.”
The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star reveals one of the things the sisters would clash over was their overlapping circle of friends, particularly as Kendall began hanging out more with Kylie’s close pal, fellow model Hailey Baldwin.
“She was actually best friends with Kylie, and I was good friends with her cousin Ireland (Alec Baldwin‘s daughter),” she explained. “Hailey lived in New York, and whenever we were there, we would hang out with her.”
Tensions between Kris Jenner‘s youngest kids reached a new high during the 23-year-old’s modelling debut at New York Fashion Week, when Kendall “stole Hailey from Kylie”.
“From then on, she [Hailey] was my homie,” Kendall said. “At first, Kylie was mad; I had to bring them back together and be like, ‘No, it’s OK, guys.’ But it’s all good; that’s our love story.”
