Caitlyn Jenner Shares Her Excitement Over New Grandbaby, But Fans Are Asking Why She Wasn't There for Kylie

On Super Bowl Sunday, Kylie Jenner grabbed attention away from the game by announcing that she had just given birth to a baby girl. She released a video made of her labor and deliver, and fans were quick to notice that one person was not around: Caitlyn Jenner, her father.

Some wonder whether Kylie and her dad, the world's most famous transgendered woman, have been estranged. According to Caitlyn, it's simply not the case.

The announcement that Kylie had given birth put to rest months of rumors about the reality star's pregnancy. Kylie kept her pregnancy secret, even when it got hard to hide, because she says she wanted her pregnancy to be as stress-free and positive as possible.

It's something she decided not to share with the public, as critics of the Kardashian-Jenner clan can be quite harsh whenever they do or say anything.

Fans were quick to point out that Caitlyn wasn't around for Kylie's labor and delivery. The rest of the Kardashians were there. Even brother Rob made a cameo in the video to wish his little sister well in the birthing room.

Caitlyn said in an interview in January that she no longer talks to any of the Kardashians and hasn't seen most of them for about a year. The former Olympian had a falling out with her ex-wife and stepchildren when she went public with her transition and published a memoir.

The memoir painted Kris Kardashian in an unflattering light.

Though Caitlyn has cut ties with her Kardashian stepchildren, she has long held that she maintains a relationship with her two biological children from the marriage, Kylie and Kendall. There was no announcement about why she wasn’t present for the birth of her granddaughter, but she posted an image on Instagram at about the same time Kylie would have been going into labor that may explain her absence.

She was overseas, in Ireland, while the labor occurred. She was presented with a Beauty Icon award at the first Xposé Benefit Beauty Awards being held in Dublin.   

Though she might not have been in the delivery room, Caitlyn responded to the news publicly by posting a throwback photo on Instagram: Kylie as a baby.

“My daughter just had a daughter. It’s amazing to be by your side through this journey,” she wrote in an emotional post. “She’s SO beautiful already. Can’t wait to watch her grow.”

When rumors were swirling about the pregnancy, some said that Caitlyn wasn't happy about Kylie's decision to become a mom so young. Caitlyn has never given any attention to the rumors and seems delighted.

Another delighted family member is grandmother Kris Kardashian. “I was bawling! I was crying so hard, especially at the end,” Kris said of the event video. She said in a comment to People Magazine that Kylie is already 'an amazing mom'.

Kylie is reportedly also over the moon. When she finally announced her daughter's birth, she wrote on Instagram, "Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life-changing experience I’ve had in my entire life and I’m actually going to miss it.... I’ve never felt love and happiness like this I could burst!”
