A tabloid’s claim that the youngest Jenner daughter is with child sent the internet into frenzy this week. One day later, Kylie Jenner released a new Instagram photo that does little to squash the rumors about Jenner being pregnant with rapper Tyga’s baby. In fact, In Touch Weekly suggests the new snap of Kylie is actually egging on buzz about the 17-year-old being knocked up.
A day after one of the leading stories on the internet was about another member of the Kardashian-Jenner family, Kylie responded, sort of, to the controversy over her having something in the oven. She didn’t actually speak openly about the news, and she didn’t do anything to quiet or even verify the prevailing rumor. Instead, she let an Instagram pic do all the talking.
Some suggest that if she intended to put a lid on tabloid rumors about her having a baby, it backfired; Jenner merely fanned the flames. The picture shows Kylie Jenner taking a selfie. Nothing wrong with that, right? Wrong! If you know anything about Kylie, she’s known to show off skin, like her famous sisters. Nevertheless, the younger Jenner posed in an oversize coat that masked, perhaps, a growing baby bump?
For now, Kylie Jenner is supposedly pregnant and her 25-year-old boyfriend is the baby daddy. The unplanned pregnancy has allegedly taken many by surprise, including Kylie’s big sisters, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, both of whom are struggling to have children of their own (apparently, both are struggling with fertility issues), this according to an “exclusive source” for Hollywood Life.
“If Kylie were pregnant, Kim and Khloe would be happy for her and absolutely sad at the same time.”
Baby rumors are common among Hollywood’s elite. However, it’s not often that an underage celebrity — excluding cast members from Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant — becomes pregnant and bears a child. And as Tinsel Town has shown time and time again, celebs (the grownup kind) are often targets of conception rumors. Oftentimes, the chatter fizzles after failing to grow legs, especially in the absence of the de facto pregnancy test: the baby bump.

Perhaps, the person most torn over Kylie’s rumored pregnancy is her mom, Kris Jenner. According to the source, Kris, who has never been Team Tyga, is in shambles over the news about her baby having a, well… baby.
“She was screaming, telling Kylie she was going to kill her and that she never should have let this happened. Kris tried to ban Kylie from dating Tyga. Kylie told her to mind her own business.”
It’s unknown if Kylie Jenner is really pregnant or she is merely taking advantage of the media circus surrounding the “baby” headlines. However, one thing is clear: Social media won’t let up until a pooch surfaces in pics, a confirmation is heard from the horse’s mouth, or her tummy remains washboard-flat nine months later.
