Kylie kept her pregnancy with daughter Stormi secret from the world for nine months, and has now said that the experience prepared her for self-isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.

Celebrities have come out in their numbers to encourage the public to stay inside and self-isolate during the coronavirus pandemic, and while Tom Hanks and Idris Elba share their wise words, we've turned our attention to a more unlikely advice-giver - Kylie Jenner.

The 22-year-old beauty boss took to Instagram to reveal that she has been in self-isolation for eight days, and wanted to encourage her 166 million followers to do the same.

While Kylie managed to hide her entire pregnancy with daughter Stormi from the world, self-isolation for her is simply going back to her old routine, apart from her regular low-key trips to In N Out during those nine months.

In an Instagram Story she wrote: "I hope everyone is feeling well! It's so important right now to self quarantine to ensure we aren't endangering ourselves or anyone who can't handle this virus,"

"My pregnancy prepared me for this. I didn't leave the house for months." And she wasn't joking - but this time around, she'll have the two year old for company, who is already one of the sassiest members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

But while Kylie may have been using her platform for good, older sister Kourtney Kardashian took the opportunity to share a bible passage saying that coronavirus is 'God's way of punishing humanity for doing evil'.

Of course, people haven't taken to it lightly after sister Kim was recently trolled for posting a 'prediction' about coronavirus from psychic Sylvia Browne, but Kourtney has even tried to cash in on the crisis through her lifestyle brand Poosh.

The brand posted an article about how to 'prepare for coronavirus' that was affiliated with a friend of Kourtney's, encouraging readers to buy one of their emergency disaster kits, listed from $60 - $250, although it wasn't listed as sponsored.

While we can think of worse places to be than a California mansion during the crisis (and no we're not talking about Stormi's ridiculous playhouse), we're glad that the youngest member of the family is keeping her followers in check - and if you're going to listen to anyone, please read the NHS advice first.
