Kylie Jenner ensured that Malika Haqq didn’t entirely steal the limelight this weekend – the best friend to Khloe Kardashian is nearing the end of her pregnancy, and a giant baby shower thrown in her honor was attended by 22-year-old Kylie.
Kylie marked her attendance at the baby shower via a photo and video-heavy Instagram post – the Kylie Cosmetics CEO and reality star showcased the venue, her look, and a snap of herself with Malika, but a video highlighting the billionaire’s behind made it all about Kylie.

Kylie’s post opened with an adorable photo of herself cuddling up to a giant white teddy bear forming part of the soft white and beige decor at Malika’s bash. The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star was looking chic and stylish in a cream-colored, ribbed dress that clung to her curves perfectly – Kylie also wore square-toed tan sandals, plus a cream handbag to match her dress.
A few swipes to the right included a peek at the packaged “Ready To Pop” popcorn and party interiors, but it wasn’t long before Kylie was focusing on her gorgeous outfit. The star was seen parading in front of the camera, with the lens very much zooming in on her behind.
Kylie did, however, dedicate her caption to 36-year-old Malika, also closing her post with a photo of herself and the social media star posing for the camera.
Malika was looking glowing in a bump-flaunting beige dress that matched the party’s balloons, with her photo definitely showing that the final stages of her pregnancy have been reached.
Malika got a shout-out from Kylie.
“The most beautiful baby shower for the most beautiful pregnant woman inside & out! @malika,” Kylie wrote.
Malika herself took to social media to mark the baby shower, but her post was more low-key – the brunette only posted a close-up of herself in her silky dress.
Fans did seem to pick up on the fact that only a small proportion of the makeup mogul’s post actually showed Malika.
“A post celebrating someone else yet it takes 4 swipes for them to be seen on the feed,” one user wrote.
Over 390 users liked this comment.
“How Malika gonna be the last pic and she’s the one having the baby?,” another fan wrote.
A comment garnering over 220 likes also seemed to echo the thought.
“Someone needs to seriously get over herself ! …in her reality show she said she just wants to live her own life on a farm somewhere …and not be in the spotlight…..? ..not buying that for one min !! …she enjoys all the attention and fame too much ! ….if she didn’t should have stopped a long time ago”
Responses to Kylie’s post weren’t exclusively negative, with the mom of one generating some positivity, despite the backlash.
“What a hottie,” one user wrote.
“So gorgeous” was another comment.
The post itself also proved popular overall, clocking in over 4.9 million likes by the time the sun rose on Sunday morning.
