The star is expecting her second child with rapper Travis Scott.

Jenner took time away from social media after 10 concertgoers died at Scott’s Astroworld Festival show in Houston on Nov. 5. 

On New Year’s Eve, Jenner took time to reflect on the past year.


“As 2022 is approaching i’ve been reflecting on this last year and the blessings that it brought but also the many heartaches it held,” she wrote alongside the black-and-white image of her growing baby bump. “I will never forget this year and all the significant changes it made to my life.”
