Kylie Jenner has opened up about learning to accept her post-baby body after becoming a mother for the first time.

The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan gave birth to daughter Stormi last February and has spoken out about how her body changed after pregnancy.

When asked if it was hard to get back in shape by one of her Instagram followers, Kylie responded: “I snapped back pretty fast but it was never the same and still isn’t! Once I accepted the change my confidence came back. It just takes time.”

Kylie was then asked if she developed stretch marks when she was expecting and how she dealt with them, to which she revealed a refreshingly sweet approach.

She revealed that she opted not to get rid of her stretch marks after they appeared on her ‘breasts, butt and thighs’, telling her followers: “I haven’t gotten rid of them. Just accepted them as a little gift from Stormi lol.”

It was reported that Kylie and Travis were taking a break at the start of the month, with the 22-year-old billionaire confirming the news on Twitter.

She wrote: “Travis and I are on great terms and our main focus right now is Stormi.

“Our friendship and our daughter is our priority.”

A source close to the reality star added: “Kylie clung on to this relationship as long as she could.

“Things hadn’t been good for a while, but she was so sure they could work things out. They got serious so quickly – she got pregnant just weeks into the relationship – and she’s spent the past couple of years trying to coax Travis into a more settled family routine. But he just couldn’t seem to do it and, in the end, he decided they should take a break."
