The show must go on for Kendall Jenner.

The 21-year-old supermodel is used to being the focus of attention, both on the runway and off, but the glare of the spotlight shone even brighter this morning. Kendall is in Milan for fashion week and on Saturday morning, walked for Italian designer Bottega Veneta, just hours after her younger sister Kylie's pregnancy news broke.

Kendall led a host of famous models stalking the runway including Sara Sampaio and an unlikely appearance by Emily Ratajkowski. But all eyes were on fashion's fastest rising star, who will jet to Paris on Monday for the last week of Fashion Month.

On Friday, news broke that Kylie is expecting her first child with rapper Travis Scott, whom she has been dating for five months and those closest to her are said to have known about the pregnancy "for quite some time".

Although they often feature together on the family's reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie said last month that she and her sister have grown to be very different people.

"'Kendall and I, I don't think we'd be friends if we weren't sisters," she said on Life of Kylie, her E! spin-off reality show.

Meanwhile, Kylie's news, which was revealed before the show's 10-year anniversary special, has been the talk of the showbiz world.

In order to avoid detection of her changing shape, the cosmetics mogul has been posting old pictures on her social media accounts and she has been pictured wearing baggy t-shirts in recent weeks. She was notably absent from New York, London and Milan for fashion week, where she has become a staple cheering on her sister.

"Kylie was really surprised but is so happy. She wants to be a mom," an insider told People.
