Kylie Jenner addressed those who questioned if she was really a “self-made” billionaire after the social media star was nicknamed “the youngest ever self-made billionaire” by Forbes earlier this month.

Jenner, 21, discussed her cosmetic empire, as a young mother, and whether they have more children during a Q&A with Interview Germany published Thursday.

The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star was asked how it felt to be the name of the youngest self-made billionaire, beating Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

“I never thought that this could happen,” she told Interview Germany. “I believed in Her Cosmetics, but I didn’t even know what I myself in. It feels great, it is wild, and the youngest ever to do so, it is a blessing. I now want to focus on giving back to people and doing things that I’m passionate about.”
