It's officially December, which means we'll soon say goodbye to everything we've been through in 2019 and hello to what's to come in 2020. But it won't be easy. After all, 2019 was quite the eventful year. Between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcoming their first child, Archie, and unexpected celebrity breakups -- such as Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid, and Lady Gaga and Christian Carino -- there's no doubt 2019 was action-packed for Hollywood's biggest A-listers. But it's safe to say the stars who grabbed the most attention this year was the Kardashian family ... by far.

That's right. Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, and Kris, Kylie, and Kendall Jenner sure know how to steal the spotlight -- and they did just that throughout the entire duration of 2019. There wasn't a day that went by without at least one member of the famous clan splashed across a magazine, and for good reason: They've had quite the eventful year! 

First and foremost, the family expanded this year. Back in May, Kim and husband Kanye West welcomed their fourth child, a son named Psalm West, who the couple says completes their adorable family. "I feel like having four is so much more zen. I feel really calm and zen. I feel like they all love each other." the reality star gushed in September. She added that her two older children, North and Saint, used to fight frequently, but since the arrival of baby Psalm, things have calmed down a bit in their household. "Everyone gets along, everyone loves each other. I'm rolling with it. It just really is zen. It feels really equal and calm and great."

But the arrival of Psalm was just one small piece of the Kardashians' eventful year. Read on for all the times the famous fam made headlines this year.

  • Kendall's Acne Backlash


    When Kris announced in early 2019 that Kendall had a "raw" and "vulnerable" story to share with fans, people quickly speculated that the leggy model could possibly be pregnant or perhaps coming out about her sexuality. But nothing prepared fans for what the actual story turned out to be. When the 24-year-old confirmed that she had partnered up with ProActiv after struggling with acne as a teen, she received an endless amount of backlash. 

    "Shame on this lady for getting people to think her family was actually going to do something courageous, rather than announce a partnership with a company who makes acne medicine," one Twitter user wrote. 

  • Jordyn Comes Between Khloe and Tristan


    Earlier this year, news broke that Tristan Thompson had once again cheated on Khloe, but the biggest shock was that this time, Kylie's BFF Jordyn Woods was the other woman involved. "I talked to Jordyn. It's really weird, she's not giving me all the information," Khloe said on Keeping Up With the Kardashians after she first learned of the heartbreaking news. "She was like, 'He was trying to kiss me and I can't remember if we did or didn't.'"

    Khloe and Tristan, who welcomed daughter True in 2018, have since split.

  • Jordyn Comes Clean


    In an attempt to clear her name, the model appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk to break down what happened with Khloe's baby daddy, Tristan. During the interview, she explained that she partied at Tristan's house until the early hours of the morning, and they did share a brief kiss. "On the way out, he did kiss me," she said. "No passion, no nothing, on the way out. He just kissed me. Like a kiss on the lips, no tongue kiss, no making out, nothing."

    Though Jordyn's version of the story painted herself in a more positive light, Khloe wasn't having any of it and took to Twitter to remind the model that she is the reason her family is broken.

  • Best Friends for Ever?


    Despite being friends for years, Kylie and Jordyn's relationship wasn't strong enough to withstand all the drama caused in the Tristan and Khloe cheating scandal. So naturally, Kylie kicked Jordyn out of her mansion, leaving the model to fend for herself without her partner-in-crime. 

    As for Kylie, she used this change in her life as an opportunity to grow. "She was my security blanket, she lived with me, we did everything together," she said on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "I just felt like, 'Oh, I have Jordyn, I don't need anything else.' And I feel like there's a part of me that needed to grow without her."

  • Introducing Baby Psalm


    This family just keeps getting bigger! Kim confirmed the arrival of her fourth child on Twitter with a screenshot of a text message from her husband, Kanye. "We are blessed beyond measure," he said. "We have everything we need." The makeup mogul captioned the screenshot with the name of her baby boy, "Psalm West."

  • Drunken Fun


    Kylie and Khloe's drunk "Get Ready With Me" video was one to remember from 2019. In the 20-minute segment, which has been viewed more than 13 million times, the sisters pound shots as they attempt to do their makeup. By the end of the video, the sisters can barely form coherent sentences.

  • No More Kimono


    After announcing that her new shapewear brand would be called Kimono, Kim received some serious backlash from fans, with the trending of the hashtag #KimOhNo. "Kimonos/Chinese dresses are a symbol of tradition, culture, RESPECT and ancestry lessons," one fan wrote.

    The reality star took some time to regroup before announcing she would change the name. "My brands and products are built with inclusivity and diversity at their core and after careful thought and consideration, I will be launching my Solutionwear brand under a new name. I will be in touch soon."

    She later confirmed the new name of the brand would be Skims.

  • Stormi's Halloween Look


    Though the Kardashians always go all-out for Halloween, there's no doubt Stormi Webster stole the show this year. Kylie's little one donned a mini replica of her mother's memorable Met Gala look, complete with a long purple wig. "My baby!!!!!!!! I cant handle this!!!!" the reality star captioned a series of photos. 

  • Keeping Up With Kourtney


    The eldest of the Kardashian sisters made a splash when she announced in November that she will be taking a step back from the reality show that made her a household name. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kourtney admitted, "I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there." Though she made sure to add that this isn't goodbye.

  • The Rich Get Even Richer


    Last year, Kylie graced the cover of Forbes and stirred up some controversy as the magazine said she was on track to become the youngest "self made" billionaire. Though people had trouble wrapping their heads around the phrase "self made" to describe a young girl who was born into wealth, Kylie didn't bat an eye. In fact, this year, the Kylie Cosmetics CEO became an actual billionaire when she sold a majority stake of her company to beauty empire Coty for a whopping $600,000.

  • Kylie & Travis Call it Quits


    "Travis and I are on great terms and our main focus right now is Stormi. Our friendship and our daughter is priority," Kylie wrote on Twitter after news broke that she and baby daddy Travis Scott have temporarily gone their separate ways. Though there was speculation that cheating may have been a factor in the split, the rapper confirmed on social media that no infidelity took place. "Once again, these false stories about me cheating are simply not true. Focusing on life, music, and family at this moment is what's real," he wrote.

  • Kylie's Rebound?


    It didn't take long for rumors to swirl that Kylie was getting back together with her ex Tyga after calling things off with Travis. To add fuel to the fire, the reality star was spotted at the same recording studio where her old flame was hanging out shortly after the split. But the mother of one set the record straight on Twitter, confirming that she was simply dropping her friends off at the studio and there was no run-in with Tyga.

    It was the wake-up call heard 'round the world. Kylie briefly woke up her daughter Stormi from a nap by singing "Rise and Shine" in a YouTube video that centered on her Kylie Cosmetics office tour, and what happened next was legendary. Fans became so fixated with the "song" Kylie sang, that it sparked countless memes, remixed songs, and even merchandise. (Don't expect Kris Jenner to sit back and not capitalize on a viral moment!)

  • Kanye Changes the Rules 


    Thanks to his newfound Christianity, Kanye implemented some new rules in the West household this year. "I think and feel differently now that I'm Christian," he said during an interview. Apparently, some of those rules include no makeup or skimpy clothing for daughter North.

    "North is trying to get in on the makeup but she's being blocked heavily because her dad has stopped all makeup for her until she is a teenager," Kim revealed to E! News. "It's a big discussion, a big fight in the household right now, but it is what's best."

  • Rob's Night Out


    The lesser-known Kardashian brother rarely shows his face in public these days, which is why fans were surprised to see him celebrating sister Kylie's 22nd birthday. "5am birthday adventures with my two fav people," the beauty mogul wrote on Instagram in a photo alongside Rob and Kendall. The father of one was even briefly linked to Kylie's new BFF, Stassie Karanikolaou, after this event, but that rumor fizzled just as quickly as it started.
