Now that Kylie Jenner's finally gone and had her baby, thus confirming her pregnancy after ages and ages of silence — don't think I'm ready to forgive you yet, Jenner — people have mostly forgotten about the wild theories that were flying about regarding her pregnancy. But don't worry, I definitely haven't. We can now rule out that conspiracy theory that Jenner was Kim Kardashian's surrogate, but there were actually nine theories about Kylie Jenner's pregnancy that were actually correct (or at least wonderfully coincidental).
It wasn't until Sunday that Kylie finally confirmed that her daughter, Stormi, had been born on Feb. 1, and she apologized for keeping fans out of the loop in her Instagram post announcing the news. "I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions," she wrote. "I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could."
And while Kylie did keep folks in the dark, some of the theories that fans came up with — based on hints Kylie dropped or signs they saw elsewhere — were definitely true. Here's a look at some of the ones that proved retrospectively correct:
When sister Kendall Jenner became Kylie's photographer for the Love Magazine cover shoot and mom Kris Jenner took over interviewing duties, many fans were suspicious that Kylie had something to hide. I mean, maybe this was also just a ploy to highlight Kris' and Kendall's talents — but it certainly seemed like it was part of Kylie's attempts to cover up her pregnancy without worrying about leaks.
Everyone was certain that Kylie's all-pink Christmas decorations were a hint that she was expecting a girl, and guess what? Kylie totally had a baby girl.
When Kris shared a picture of nine pairs of Burt's Bees Baby pajamas gifted to the family, people flipped out — since at the time, neither Khloé Kardashian nor Kylie had confirmed their pregnancies. According to Seventeen, Kris explained the mismatched numbers on Steve by saying, "That’s what they sent!" — but we know better now, Kris.
In a January episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kylie sent all of her sisters pink donuts. Though no one has confirmed that the gifts were a gender reveal, it sure seems suspicious now that we know she gave birth to a girl.
When Kylie shared a Snapchat of three cinnamon buns in the oven, everyone was sure that she was referring to three pregnancies: hers, Kim's, and Khloé's. Perhaps she was just dealing with supreme pregnancy cravings that day, but now that all pregnancies have been confirmed (with two births already!), it seems like confirmation that Kylie was throwing her fans subtle hints.
That covered-up tummy and Kylie's possibly thinner lips might have been due to her pregnancy, as fans suspected. After all, pregnant women aren't allowed to get lip fillers — and Kylie was trying to hide a baby bump until she was ready to announce her news.
Folks, she was throwing people gender hints the entire time.
When Kris shared a Christmas card picture in mid-October, people theorized that Kylie's absence was due to her pregnancy. Considering that Kylie's baby was born on Feb. 1, chances are Kylie was definitely showing when this shoot took place — explaining why she skipped out on the shot.
When Kylie failed to appear in Kim's 25 Christmas cards on Instagram, fans were certain that she was pregnant and hiding it. And once again, that theory proved correct.
Thank goodness for all of the watchful Kylie fans out there — they nailed it throughout her entire pregnancy. And clearly, with all of the correct theories out there, some of them should probably consider a career change into detective work.
