After announcing in June that she would no longer be sharing images of her baby girl’s face, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star kicked off her birthday festivities with a sweet tribute to her 6-month-old daughter.
“Bringing in my birthday tonight with my most special gift. What was life before you, Stormi. I love you my little angel,” Jenner captioned a new mother-daughter portrait on Instagram Thursday, one day before her Aug. 10 birthday.
“My heart,” the proud parent captioned another image.
Thursday’s birthday post about the pair may be an exception in Jenner’s social media rule.
A source previously told PEOPLE that Jenner had planned to keep her child’s face off social media, a move that Stormi’s father Travis Scott has also been following as of late.
“Kylie felt so protective of her baby when she was pregnant. This is why she didn’t share any bump pictures while she was pregnant,” the source said in June.
“After Stormi was born, Kylie was the proudest mum. She couldn’t wait to show off Stormi to her fans. She posted pictures because she was so excited to be a mum,” the source shared.
“Unfortunately, social media is a crazy place,” continues the source, noting that “people have been making nasty comments” about Jenner’s baby girl.
