"must be dreaming!! 🌹," Kylie captioned her post, which truly did look to be what dreams are made of. With their baby Stormi sitting under the archways, the photo was just about the most heart-melting thing ever. Plus, Scott dropped some major dough to impress his lady.

And now, the most bittersweet post of all. "Travis and i are on great terms and our main focus right now is Stormi ‼️ our friendship and our daughter is priority," Kylie said in a tweet confirming rumors the couple parted ways.

Eventually, Scott did share a message of his own about the sudden breakup. The rapper slammed rumors he had cheated in a post on his Instagram stories.
“It’s really affecting when u see false things said about u once again these false stories about me cheating are just simply not true,” Scott wrote.

That being said, you can bet my eyes will be peeled for more social media interactions between these two. After all, they're still as committed to being a loving family as ever.
