Here's Why Fans Think Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson Could Already Be Married

Talk about a Kardashian Christmas. On Wednesday, Khloe Kardashian confirmed that she is pregnant with boyfriend Tristan Thompson's baby and the news could not be any more exciting. But after months of speculating if she was pregnant, people are already onto the next thing, wondering if there are any clues that point to Kardashian and Thompson already being married, because fans certainly have their theories.

In the pregnancy announcement, shared to Kardashian's Instagram account, she finally showed off her growing pregnancy bump and expressed her gratitude for all of the people in her life who helped her to this point. But perhaps the sweetest part of her announcement is the very special shoutout she gives to her boyfriend who plays basketball for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Kardashian wrote the sweetest words for her boyfriend in the photo's caption:

I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have ever envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!

These super sweet words, combined with the gorgeous band on her finger (look at that thing) has people wondering if Kardashian and Thompson secretly got married at some point before the announcement. People on Twitter can not stop speculating about this and sharing their suspicions.

As fans pointed out, Kardashian is wearing not one but two bands stacked on top of one another on her finger that is caressing her pregnancy bump. There are no other rings on her fingers, so these rings have to hold some kind of meaning, right? Maybe they symbolize both Kardashian and Thompson, coming together. Or maybe they mean something more. Or nothing at all.

But, the placement of the rings is pretty suspicious. In the photo, the rings appear to be on the ring finger of her left hand, which traditionally holds significance. According to The Knot, wedding rings are typically placed on the "wedding ring finger," or "the fourth finger on the left hand" after vows are exchanged during a wedding. Unlike engagement rings, which are worn on the ring finger of the right hand, wedding rings are usually bands, much like the one that Kardashian is wearing. Once the marriage takes place, according to The Knot, the engagement ring is stacked on top of the wedding band.

Kardashian has said that she does want to get married to Thompson, eventually. Last April, according to E! News, Kardashian told ES Magazine that she and Thompson had "no immediate plans" for a wedding, but if he proposed tomorrow, she would say yes. Kardashian gushed over Thompson to the magazine, saying that she had "never been in this type of love before."

But on the other hand, Kardashian has expressed her reluctancy to get married again after already being married once before. In an interview with The Mail on Sunday's YOU magazine, Kardashian talked about how she would like to get married eventually, just not right away. Kardashian said, according to E! News:

I'm in the best relationship I've ever been in and it doesn't take a ring for me to feel that way. I believe in marriage and I want to be married again one day but I don't have a time frame. Why do people think marriages equate to happiness? There are a lot of people in unhappy marriages.

Fans will just have to wait for Kardashian to confirm (or deny) that she may or may not be married (or engaged). But since it took months for Kardashian to confirm her pregnancy, it is likely that she will stay silent on this subject for a little while... if there's anything to address, that is.
