Jenner, who's quite an active Instagram user, broke her social media silence at the end of 2021 - sharing a vintage throwback picture of mum Kris Jenner on Christmas Eve. Then on New Year's Eve, the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' alum- who is expecting her second child with the rapper - opened up about the "heartaches" she had experienced in 2021.
