Kylie Jenner, 23, gave birth to daughter Stormi, on Feb. 1, 2018 at just 20-years-old. The announcement, made on YouTube, followed a highly secretive pregnancy with then-boyfriend Travis Scott, 29. “stormi webster,” Kylie simply captioned a post confirming her baby girl’s name.

“I feel like it’s just been so amazing, and so much fun. I’m learning so much more about myself and life, and it’s been such a great experience,” Kylie said to sister Kim Kardashian, about being a first-time mom in a piece for the Evening Standard. “Of course there’s hard times and stuff … even in the beginning, just not sleeping, the nights, like, baby blues … and all the ups and downs. I would rather be with her or wish she can come everywhere,” she concluded.

Jamie Lynn Spears, shocked the world in 2007 when she announced her first pregnancy at just 16-years-old with then-boyfriend Casey Aldridge, who was 18 at the time. The Zoey’s 101 alum gave birth to her daughter Maddie Briann Aldridge, now 12, on June 19, 2008. Jamie Lynn and Casey ended their engagement in 2009.

“It was scary – I couldn’t believe it … My biggest concern was, ‘Oh my goodness, I need to tell my mother and father and my family’,” Jamie Lynn said to People magazine in 2016. “I was on a Nickelodeon show, so I felt responsible for what these young girls were gonna think looking up to me. I put myself in an adult situation, so I needed to handle it like an adult. My age was never an excuse for me.”

Beyoncé‘s younger sister Solange Knowles, became pregnant at just 17-years-old with then boyfriend (and later husband) Daniel Smith. The Solo Star singer gave birth to her son Daniel Julez J. Smith Jr., now 15, on October 18, 2004, when Solange was 18. Solange and Daniel split in 2007 after three years of marriage.

“Seventeen will be the hardest year of your life. It will grow you up almost immediately,” Solange wrote in a self-reflective letter to herself for Teen Vogue back in 2017. “you will be terrified, and it’s ok that you don’t know what the future holds. Some people will count you out because of the decision you’ve made to bring another life into the world so young, but you made the decision out of love and will live with the decision in love,” she also wrote.
