Kylie Jenner has donated $1million (around £840,000) to help provide medical staff in the US with masks and gear to protect themselves against the coronavirus.
The 22 year old makeup mogul, who recently said how her pregnancy with daughter Stormi prepared her for isolation, donated the funding to her doctor Dr Thaïs Aliabadi, who helped deliver Stormi.
Los Angeles-based gynecologist Dr Thaïs said she was “speechless” as she shared the news on her Instagram page.

The doctor posted a photo of herself next to a snap of Kylie cuddling up to her baby daughter Stormi and in the middle of the collage two pink heart emojis have been placed.
She then wrote in the caption: “I am speechless, my eyes are filled with tears of joy and my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude.
“I made a wish to the Universe to gather protective masks for our brave healthcare workers and today my dream came true.”
She added: “One of my patients, a beautiful Living Angel just donated $1,000,000 to help us buy hundreds of thousands of masks, face shields, and other protective gear which we will have delivered directly to our first responders, as too many masks at hospitals are disappearing before making their way onto the faces of our front line heroes.
“I have never felt more blessed to be a doctor, as helping our brave ER and ICU workers feels just as gratifying as helping my own patients.
“From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU @kyliejenner [red heart emoji]. You are my hero. This generous donation will help save many precious lives. Our world is a better place with you in it. I love you so much. Thank you X a million….”
