It is really hard to keep up with the Kardashian family these days. Just days after news broke that Kylie Jenner is reportedly pregnant with her first child, there are now reports that Khloé Kardashian is pregnant, too, according to Us Weekly. What is going on here? According to the magazine, "multiple" anonymous sources say that the 31-year-old is pregnant with her and boyfriend Tristan Thompson's first child, too.
Update: On Dec. 20, Khloé Kardashian confirmed on Instagram that she was expecting her first child with Tristan Thompson.
Earlier: Crazy, right? Romper has reached out to Kardashian's representatives for comment, but has not heard back at this time. And so far, neither Khloé or Thompson have made a public statement either confirming or denying the news. Despite the lack of confirmation, if the baby news is true, it's somehow less surprising than Kylie's alleged pregnancy announcement over the weekend. Here's why.
Kardashian and Thompson, a center for the Cleveland Cavaliers, met via a blind date last year and have been dating publicly since September 2016. Whenever Khloé mentions him, it's all about how in L-O-V-E she is and how serious they are as a couple. In fact, she's even talked babies.
In the Season 13 finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in June, the Good American designer joked that Thompson was ready for a straight up brood. She said:
He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that's lovely. We could start at one and then grow from there. But now, knowing I'm not on birth control, it's really scary. It's like a really big step.
If she is pregnant, it would be good news for the reality TV star. Last season on KUWTK, she offered to be a surrogate for her sister Kim, who is unable to get pregnant again because of health concerns. Khloé went to the doctor with Kim to get an ultrasound, where the doctor told her that she had fewer follicles than he had expected for a woman her age.
“There are fewer follicles than I anticipate for a normal 32-year-old," he said. She was not happy. "Shut the f*ck up. This is definitely not all how I thought this appointment was going to go. What if I can’t get pregnant?," Khloé responded. If the new rumors are true, Khloé had nothing to be stressed about. This would not be Thompson's first experience with kids. He already has a 9-month-old son named Prince with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
Khloé's alleged pregnancy announcement comes just days after media outlets reported that Kylie was welcoming a daughter with current boyfriend Travis Scott. Earlier this summer, Kim Kardashian West confirmed that her and Kanye's surrogate was already pregnant and reportedly due sometime this winter. If all of this news is true, the Kardashian-Jenner clan would grow by three tiny little humans this year.
However, Kris Jennr said on Monday that Kylie "wasn't confirming anything." Reports also circulated that big sister Kim was somehow upset at the news that her younger sister was pregnant because of her own fertility issues.
True to form, she shut down rumors of sibling rivalry on Tuesday by tweeting a link to a story and commenting, "This sounds like a very fake story." She added, "And speaking of fake stories... The media is super shady for posting fake quotes from Caitlyn when she hasn’t spoke to anyone."
So, the family continues to dance around confirming or denying Kylie's alleged pregnancy announcement and then Khloé announces her own possible, unconfirmed good news? Either this is all total kismet for the family and there's going to be one huge family Christmas card next year, or this is some amazing public relations ploy meant to ... do what exactly?
That's the thing about Kardashian-Jenner conspiracy theories. Why would they engineer pregnancies or fake pregnancy stories to begin with? For now, let's all just wait for Kylie, Khloé, or Mama Kris to confirm all of these rumors because it's sort of too much to handle.
