Kylie Jenner has asked her 166million Instagram followers to self-isolate at home, while comparing quarantine to when she kept her pregnancy with Stormi Webster secret for nine months.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, in which people are being advised to self-isolate and social distance in a bid to slow the spread, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has revealed she's been in quarantine for eight days.

"Another daily reminder to take this social distancing serious[ly] and self quarantine!!" she wrote on Instagram Stories. "I'm on day eight. My pregnancy prepared me for this. I didn't leave the house for months. We got this."

Kylie is referencing the nine months she went off grid while expecting her daughter Stormi Webster, now two. You might remember Kylie didn't actually confirm she was expecting a baby with Travis Scott until her birth, when she shared a pregnancy journey video on YouTube entitled 'To Our Daughter'.

The makeup mogul was shrouded in speculation during that time, with fans analysing everything from a Calvin Klein photoshoot to paparazzi pics, trying to work out why she had shunned the spotlight for so long.

Once she had announced the birth of Stormi, Kylie explained why she's decided to self isolate during that time.



In a statement released on 4 February 2020, she explained:

“I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you're used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.”

Let's try and take some of that Kylie Jenner manta into our self quarantine - as positive and stress free as possible.
