Khloe Kardashian Instagram Pic Sparks Pregnancy Rumors

Is Khloe Kardashian sporting a baby bump?

The reality show star recently uploaded a picture to Instagram that hints she may be ready to make an announcement soon. Kardashian’s gaze is soft and serene as she stares into the camera, but it is the hand gently and protectively placed on her still-flat stomach that indicates it may not be flat for long. The “hand-on-stomach” pose is often a popular early indicator for moms-to-be when getting ready to announce their pregnancies.

Khloe Kardashian, who divorced basketball star Lamar Odom after four years of marriage, had previously maintained that fertility problems prevented her from becoming pregnant. But sister Kim later revealed that Khloe was trying to avoid pregnancy because she knew her marriage was in major trouble, despite Khloe publicly longing for a baby. Kim further revealed that Khloe repeatedly skipped appointments with the fertility specialist in order to prevent pregnancy.

Khloe’s fertility issues may not even be an issue at all, in fact. Khloe herself says that the entire issue was just a matter of her “hormones being off” rather than actual infertility, and that the problem is corrected by taking hormone shots.

Now happily dating rap star French Montana, Khloe has made it clear that she is committed to the relationship and has even said that having a child with Montana is something she wants.

Despite family concerns over Khloe’s relationship with Montana, Khloe is reportedly devoted to the rapper, claiming that he makes her laugh and that, despite all the rumors that he is a “bad boy,” insists that he is, instead, a real “softy.”

If Khloe isn’t pregnant now, chances are she will have to wait awhile to conceive, since she recently revealed in a joint interview with Montana that the rapper’s observance of Ramadan has translated into enforced abstinence for the couple. Ramadan, which is a Muslim holy month, is a month of fasting… and not just from food, but from other activities that are considered pleasurable.

Like a true Kardashian, Khloe left little doubt as to how she feels about that, stating laughingly but sarcastically that it is “no fun” and that she has spent the time thus far “torturing” her beau.

Despite concerns from family and friends that rap star Montana may end up hurting Khloe, it seems apparent that she is having fun and enjoying her relationship with him.

So what do you think? Will Khloe be revealing her plans for a new addition any time soon?
