Kylie Jenner spends only an hour a day with baby Stormi, according to a wrong tabloid report. The reality star is being accused of barely caring for her own child. Gossip Cop can debunk the misguided story.
The new cover of Heat brands Jenner a âone-hour-a-day mom.â The accompanying story alleges the first-time parent is more interested in âlooking super-hot for her date nights and holidaysâ with Travis Scott than raising their daughter, who was born in February. The gossip magazine maintains that even when Jenner is at home, sheâs âmore hands-off than hands-on.â A so-called âsourceâ is quoted as saying, âKylie sometimes doesnât spend more than an hour per a day with Stormi.â
âShe has an army of nannies and instructs them to let her know when Stormiâs âbeing cute,â so she can come and play with her,â alleges the supposed source. The purported tipster further claims, âKylie has no idea what to do when Stormi is crying or fussing, and leaves it all in the hands of the nannies. It seems half the time sheâs with her daughter is actually spent taking photos for Snapchat and Instagram.â
Thereâs no disputing the âKUWTKâ star enjoys posting photos of her baby on social media. In an image Jenner shared on Instagram on Wednesday, she is holding Stormi in Turks and Caicos, where she and Scott have been vacationing this week. But if Jenner was such a âhands-offâ and disinterested mom, why wouldnât she have left Stormi home with the nannies and gone away without her? It seems like a lot of unnecessary work to bring an infant to another country if Jenner planned on spending only a single hour a day with her.
It is also true that Jenner has nannies and assistants to help her care for the 3-month-old tot, but that doesnât mean she also isnât directly involved herself. In fact, while acknowledging the assistance she has at her disposal, People reported that nonetheless, âSheâs incredibly doting and hands-on as a mom.â Plus, the notion that Jenner wouldnât know how to calm a crying baby is laughable given that she has spent plenty of time with nieces Penelope and North, as well as nephews Mason, Reign and Saint, since they were born. As seen in Jennerâs pregnancy video, she was also around niece Chicago following her birth in January.
Furthermore, and most importantly, her own comments about motherhood go directly against this report. In an interview released this week, Jenner reveals she actually loves changing diapers. âItâs really satisfying,â she admits. âTo make her clean againâŠ The whole thing is reallyâŠ is such an amazing experience.â Jenner also speaks in the interview about how upset she gets leaving Stormi due to work obligations. Heat is not only painting a negative picture of the new mom, but itâs clear itâs not an accurate one, either.
