Kim Kardashian may have given birth to her youngest child, son Saint West, less than one year ago, but already, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is facing rumors of another pregnancy.
On the cover of the latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine, a headline reads, “Baby No. 3 For Kim.”
“Just as Kim Kardashian finally gets her pre-pregnancy body back, she and Kanye West are expanding their family,” a source told In Touch Weekly magazine, according to an August 10 report by Gossip Cop. “One pal is saying Kim is already pregnant.”
Kim Kardashian’s youngest child, son Saint West, was born in December of last year and her oldest child, daughter North West, was born in June 2013, less than one year prior to her famous parents’ wedding in Italy.

“[Kim Kardashian] loves being a mother to North and Saint and has been talking baby No. 3 for months. It seems so fast, but she wants her kids close in age. And Kanye [West] wants another, too,” the magazine’s source explained to readers.
Kim Kardashian may not have been initially on board with the idea of becoming pregnant so soon after the birth of her second child, but ultimately, revealed the source, she “came around” to the idea of having a third child with some encouragement from her rapper husband.
“At first it was Kanye who was obsessed with the idea of another baby. He was the one who wanted more kids and talked about it nonstop,” the magazine noted, adding that Kim Kardashian “wants to make him happy.”
Although a new baby would certainly be exciting for the growing Kardashian family, which also includes Kourtney Kardashian’s young children, Mason, 6, Penelope, 4, and Reign, 1, a source told Gossip Cop that Kim Kardashian is not currently pregnant a short time after In Touch Weekly’s report was shared.
Back in May, however, the reality star did have a bit of a scare, which she chronicled with fans on her Snapchat account.
“I’m legit in the airplane bathroom taking a pregnancy test because I’m having a little bit of a scare,” a panicked Kim Kardashian told her fans and followers.
She then shared a photo of three boxes of pregnancy tests with the caption “Panic Attack” before ultimately sharing a second photo, which confirmed she was not expecting her third child.

Months after the birth of Saint West, Kim Kardashian continues to focus on dropping her pregnancy weight. Weeks ago, she opened up about her impressive progress and credited the Atkins diet for her success.
“I feel like I reached my goal for sure,” Kim Kardashian revealed to E! News in July. “I’ve been doing the Atkins diet, which worked for me… this time I think I’m almost at 70 [pounds] down.”
“So I’ve recently gone into extra gear, just staying more focused,” she said. “You do get comfortable and then you start to get off track a little bit but I’ve kind of like pumped it up a little bit, just started to stay focused and follow the Atkins diet again. I feel like I lost another last few pounds that I really had to lose so that makes me happy.”
