After withholding so much information for months about her pregnancy, Khloé Kardashian confirmed she'll reveal the sex of her baby on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, according to a tweet she sent to a fan. It's sort of hilarious that almost all of the information about her pregnancy has come from Koko answering fan questions on Twitter, including how far along she was. So if you're itching for more info, keep tweeting at her. Nicely, of course.
Buried deep in Khloé's mentions, a fan asked the youngest Kardashian daughter if she would be revealing the sex of the baby on the show, since it returns this Sunday. She responded with two heart-eye emoji and added, "We will be revealing on the show but not this week."
This is not too surprising, for a few reasons. For one, the family didn't confirm the pregnancies before the mid-season finale but Khloé confirmed her pregnancy rumors just a few days after.
Given how far along Khloé is, her first ultrasounds and checkups would have happened right in the middle of filming this season, so we're likely going to get a lot more Pregnant Khloé on KUTWK this winter. If Momager Kris Jenner timed it right, Koko will give birth right around the tail end of the Season 14, which means she'll be dominating headlines and social media both on and off air. So smart, right?
Kourtney's pregnancies, for example, were both filmed for the show (she was the first one to be filmed literally yanking her first two kids out of her body), as were both of Kim's. Kim had announced both of her pregnancies in the press, but revealed the sex and other details, such as her complications, on the show, as well.
It's a safe space for the women to deal with the super personal details of their lives, because they can control the message, unlike revealing things on social media or through anonymous sources that can be misinterpreted in the media.
Khloé, 33 years old, and her boyfriend of one year, 26-year-old Tristan Thompson appear to be thrilled to be expecting their first child. She posted a picture of them together this week, too, and captioned it, "Mom & Dad." On New Year's Eve, the couple Snapchatted themselves en route to a party together, each of them complimenting the other on how good the looked.
She officially announced her pregnancy with a shot of her and Thompson together just before the Christmas holiday. She wrote:
She added, "You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!"
Knowing the Kardashians, there will be lots of roundtable discussions and lavish baby showers to see this season on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. We might even get to see what the family thought of all of our speculation and social media sleuthing, too. Because, I have to admit, it got a little out of control.
Now that Khloé is being so open about her pregnancy, it's likely that Kim will be talking about her surrogacy a lot more, too, on the show. There's only one more looming question: Will they address the rumors that Kylie's pregnant, too? Only time will tell. But there're going to have tell us where she is eventually, right?
