Jenner’s mom, Kris Jenner, took to her possess Instagram comment Wednesday morning to share a sparkling news with her amicable media following. (She after deleted a post.) Accompanying a screenshot of her youngest daughter’s strange post — that Jenner primarily denounced Tuesday, Jan. 6 — Kris penned an fatiguing heading in that a 62-year-old momager thanked fans for their support and gushed about a range of her baby granddaughter’s internet debut.
