We're going on four months now since we first learned of Kylie Jenner's pregnancy ...
And it sure has been rough.
First we had to deal with the news itself, which was actually pretty shocking.
Stories about multi-millionaire 20-year-old celebrities getting pregnant by men they've been with for a few months usually are.
And then, after we got used to the idea of Kylie being pregnant -- well, let's be real, getting used to the idea was a whole additional step in this process.
So hearing the news, absorbing it, all very tough and super weird.
But after all that, we began to realize that Kylie wasn't planning on publicly embracing the news. She wouldn't be parading her baby bump around town like many celebs.
As the weeks went on, it became clear that she probably wouldn't even publicly acknowledge the pregnancy. At all.
Now that her rumored due date is approaching, we're going to go ahead and assume that we won't hear anything about any of it until after the baby is born.
If we even hear about it at all, that is.
And like, we know that this isn't about us, but it's still been kind of a bummer to have Kylie completely disappear from the public eye like this.
Remember back in the day when we couldn't go a single day without getting at least one selfie of this girl?
If not a selfie, she always made sure to hop on Snapchat and record herself listening to some music and making faces.
We became so accustomed to her constant show of vanity, and it's been hard going from all that to this strange, sad new world.
But, according to this new report from Hollywood Life, we may have to get used to this tragic lack of Kylie in our lives.
Because there's a chance she may never come back to us.
"She wants to be out of the spotlight right now," a source explains, "and she just wants to focus on getting ready for the baby."
That makes sense, and it's certainly nothing we haven't heard before.
But this insider also claims that "Kylie has even talked about wanting to be out of the public eye permanently, and focusing on being a mom and a businesswoman."
Our hearts simply could not take it.
Could you imagine not having the absolute nonsense that is Kylie's existence in our lives? Just seeing her promote makeup instead of putting her whole life out there for us to mock and ridicule?
Even worse, could you imagine missing out on watching Kylie parent on Keeping Up with the Kardashians?!
Thankfully, the source adds that Kylie's family is taking all that talk "with a pinch of salt."
"Kris thinks there's no way Kylie is ready for a peaceful, quiet, regular life just yet, and that once she's had the baby she will want to be back out there."
This seems much more realistic, and as they say, mothers know best.
Hopefully Kris is right, and we'll have many, many more years of enjoying Kylie in all her glory.
Could we really live any other way?
