If there is anything that 2017 has taught us, it is that secrets are always exposed in the end – just ask Harvey Weinstein or Kevin Spacey. With that in mind, it is only a matter of time before Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenners’ pregnancy rumors are confirmed once and for all.
When you consider that the past few months have seen the headlines saturated with scandalous stories, from stars accused of sexual misconduct to politicians with questionable connections, it is no surprise that that fame hungry, headline demanding reality stars have postponed their pregnancy announcements.
But as the weeks of speculation blend into months, people are beginning to wonder if we’ve all been led down the garden path by the family who’ve been accused of staging a wedding for publicity and ripping off other people’s designs to line their own pockets.
This week, Kylie Jenner
‘s army of loyal fans were debating whether the 20-year-old lipstick mogul was hinting
the sex of her baby after she flooded her Instagram timeline with subtle pink snaps.
Meanwhile, Khloe’s fans were desperately trying to establish if the 33-year-old was with child or not after she posted several pictures of her looking streamlined in a slinky black sweatsuit.
“I see no bump,” wrote one perplexed follower, while questioningly typed: “I don’t see a bump…. old photo?”
Khloe added to the confusion when she added her own cryptic comment to the mix, leaving fans in a state of near hysteria.
Clearly enjoying the sultry snaps, Khloe’s boyfriend, 26-year-old Tristan Thompson, commented himself by simply typing “DAMM”. On its own, this message could have gone virtually undetected if it wasn’t for Khloe’s response.
“Hey daddy,” she sent back, along with a stream of red heart emojis.
Immediately the internet collectively screamed “AH HAH, GOT YA,” in response to the Khloe’s biggest hint drop yet.
Meanwhile, Kris Jenner has been busy uploading daily crops from the Kardashian/Jenner family Christmas photo, which features the entire clan, to her Instagram account. The snipped sections from the bigger picture are part of the momager’s advent calendar, which celebrates a different member of the family each day – even if it is just an obscure body part.
At this point, neither Kylie or Khloe have featured in the advent calendar snaps, leaving fans a little impatient. Instead, Kourtney, Kendall, Kim, North, Saint and Dream (Rob Kardashian’s daughter with Blac Chyna), have all taken center stage.
Fans think it’s strange that Kylie, often the center of attention in the family, hasn’t already featured and now suspect that she is using the opportunity to officially reveal her baby bump to the world, along with older half-sister, Khloe.
If so, it may be one of the cleverest marketing stunts carried off by the reality stars who have built a multi-million dollar empire from their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians
which first aired back in 2007, when the family were relatively unknown – or, totally unknown to anyone who hadn’t seen Kim’s now-iconic home movie with Ray-J.
Khloe was first linked to the Cleveland Cavalier player in September 2016, meaning that if she is pregnant, it has been a wild whirlwind romance. This is also true for Kylie, who began dating rapper and rumored father of her baby Travis Scott in April 2017, shortly after she split with Tyga – who has bizarrely claimed paternity to the unborn, and as of yet, unconfirmed baby.
Earlier this week, Khloe opened up about moving in with her basketball beau on her website. The youngest Kardashian sister revealed that she is now living with Thompson in Cleveland, and that when they moved in together the first thing they did was hang a photograph of themselves together.
“It makes you both feel in sync and like home is for the both of you — because after all, it is!” she explains, before going on to call it a “huge step in a relationship” – you mean, a bigger step than having a baby, Khloe?!
Whether we find out from Khloe and Kylie themselves, one thing is for sure, they cannot hide forever! Keep your eyes peeled for those baby bumps, or just follow Kris Jenner on Instagram for the big Christmas reveal.
