Kylie Jenner ‘struggling’ after giving birth: ‘It’s very hard’

Kylie Jenner admitted Tuesday that “postpartum has not been easy” just six weeks after she gave birth to her second child with Travis Scott.

“It’s very hard,” the 24-year-old began in a series videos posted to her Instagram Stories.

“This experience for me, personally, has been a little harder than with my daughter.”

Jenner welcomed her first child Scott, daughter Stormi, in February 2018 after a very secretive pregnancy.

She then gave birth to her son, Wolf, four years later on Feb. 2, 2022.

The makeup mogul said this time around postpartum has been difficult on her “mentally, physically, [and] spiritually.”

Jenner said she wanted to speak out about her struggles because she understands how fellow moms could go on the internet and feel “pressure” to return to their normal lives.

“It hasn’t been easy for me, either,” she reiterated. “It’s been hard, and I just wanted to say that so.”

Jenner then shared that she “didn’t even think” she would make it to her workout. Earlier in the day, the Kylie Cosmetics CEO posted clip of herself walking on a treadmill.

“But I’m here, and I’m feeling better,” she added before encouraging other moms, “So, you’ve got this.”

The “Kardashians” star concluded her uplifting message by saying, “It’s OK not to be OK.”

Jenner said she had been putting pressure on herself, but just needed to reminder herself that she “made a whole human — a beautiful healthy boy.”

“We have to stop putting pressure on ourselves to be back, not just physically, mentally after birth,” she added. “Just sending some love.”
