Who is Travis Scott, the father of Kylie Jenner’s baby?

The news we were all waiting for has finally been confirmed – Kylie Jenner’s a mum!

The reality star shared on Instagram that she and boyfriend Travis Scott had welcomed a baby girl this week.

So what do we know about the rapper?

The 25-year-old grew up in Missouri City, Texas and lived with his grandmother until the age of six. He attended the University of Texas at San Antonio but dropped out early to pursue a career in music.

Having dabbled in hip hop since his early teens, he found success with his first solo album in 2015.

He went on to release two more albums, earning himself a Grammy nomination.

He’s been linked with other famous women, including Rihanna and model Karrueche Tran, but first started seeing Kylie early in 2017, shortly after she split from rapper Tyga.

Rumours that Kylie was pregnant with his child first swirled in September but were never confirmed by the couple or her family.

When asked about the speculation by Billboard, he replied “I don’t want to talk about that. They’re just guesses. Let them keep fishing.”

It was reported in December that he’d ended his relationship with Kylie, who by then would have been at least 7 months pregnant.

“He finally plucked up the courage to tell Kylie he’s done, that he loves her and will always be around for the baby, but they’re not compatible as a couple,” a source told Radar Online.

“Kylie was totally blindsided even though everyone else in her life saw this coming.”

That doesn’t seem to have been true, given the video Kylie made documenting her pregnancy.

In it, we see the couple spending Christmas together.

Travis had been due to perform at pre-Superbowl parties in nightclubs in Minnesota and Las Vegas last night but pulled out at the last minute, causing a lot of fans to believe that Kylie was going into labour or had given birth.

She’d actually had the baby on Thursday, 1 February and no doubt the new dad wanted to be with her and their new arrival.
