All grown up? Kylie Jenner makes a big announcement on Twitter


It's only a couple of weeks until Kylie Jenner turns 18, but the teenage reality star is already taking the first steps into adult life.

Last night on Twitter the 17-year-old revealed that she had just left behind a big part of her childhood – her schooling. While you'd be forgiven for thinking Kylie had dropped out of education long ago considering she rarely refers to school or class on her various social media platforms, the truth is that Kylie has been homeschooled and has been steadily working towards a high school diploma.

With her high school years finally completed, the youngest Jenner took to to Twitter to celebrate. "Today, for the first time, I am very excited about tomorrow for no damn reason. Just that I'm alive & I have a wonderful life to be lived," she wrote last night.

"Oh AND.. I finished school last week.. & I know I never post on social media when I'm in class but that doesn't mean…I don't encourage education! Because I do! gooooodnight." 

While Kylie herself has generally kept quiet about that more sedate part of her life, her big sister Kim has proudly spoken out about it in previous interviews. "She goes to school. She’s homeschooled," Kim told Access Hollywood in May.

"She has a year left… She goes to school every single day. Perception can be reality and people assume maybe she’s not in school because she’s not posting about being in school all the time," the expectant mum said.

We're not so sure about the "year left" comment, seeing as that interview was only two months ago, but all the same we're delighted for Kylie. Roll on the summer!
