Despite Blac Chyna previously hinting that she and Rob Kardashian would wait until after the birth of their child to tie the knot, new reports are claiming that Blac and Rob will more than likely head down the aisle before Chyna gives birth this coming October.
A new report by Us Weekly is claiming that Chyna has now changed her mind about waiting until next year to marry Kardashian and could now be planning a wedding with Rob that would take place as early as July after some persuasion from her soon-to-be mother-in-law.
An insider told the site this week that Blac and Rob “will get married before the baby is born in October” and supposedly opted to make the change after receiving a little advice from Kardashian’s mom and manager, Kris Jenner.
The Kardashian source claimed that “Kris convinced them to sell the wedding as a separate show,” rather than simply featuring their big day on their upcoming E! reality series, which has the working title Rob & Blac, meaning the two will be getting married sooner rather than later.
This isn’t the first time reports have claimed that Kris is ready to cash in on Rob and Blac’s romance either, as People previously claimed that Jenner was looking at the couple’s marriage and baby news “from a financial perspective.”
“She sees this as an amazing media opportunity and financial gain for Rob,” an insider claimed of Kris.
Radar Online also reported that Jenner was seeing dollar signs over Kardashian’s new life choices, noting that “Rob and Blac can really make a lot of money with Kris.”
Blac Chyna allegedly turned to Kris because “she knows how to make sure they get paid for every little thing and to make sure their show is super profitable,” the source said.
Reports suggesting that Chyna and Kardashian’s wedding has now been moved back to its original July date came after Hollywood Life originally reported that Blac had changed her mind about marrying while pregnant as she supposedly wanted to get back in shape before she walked down the aisle with Rob.
“This is going to be Chyna’s first Hollywood wedding, and she wants to look right and tight for it,” an insider close to Blac and Rob told the site back in May.
“Blac and Rob are going to walk down the aisle. She can’t wait. But she wants her to body to be in tip top shape and has decided to wait until after the baby is born,” the source continued of Chyna.
Hollywood Life‘s insider then went on to reveal that Blac particularly wanted “her stomach, thighs, chest and butt to be in the best shape they’ve ever been” because she knows that the eyes of the world will be on her during her wedding day.
“Blac and Rob have a lot of TV and photo deals riding on their wedding,” the Blac source said, “and they both thought it would be best to wait until the baby’s born so Chyna could look her best.”
As the site previously reported, “Chyna knows everyone in the world will want to watch their reality show,” and alleged that Blac is hoping that the wedding and impending new baby will cause “huge endorsements deals to start flooding in.”
But while it appears Blac has now had a change of heart, Chyna also told Entertainment Tonight last month that she and Kardashian were in no rush to make it down the aisle and were “taking things slow” when it comes to planning their upcoming wedding.
