Is Kylie Jenner pregnant?
If you believe the reports swirling across social media after pictures emerged of Kylie wearing a loose-fitting shirt that many believed was covering up a baby bump, then the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star would likely be a few months pregnant. The speculation spread across the internet this week when the photo of Kylie Jenner wearing a bulky blue sweatshirt made the rounds.
The pictures sparked speculation that Kylie Jenner was pregnant, and was even picked up by some celebrity gossip sites like CastMag, which posted the picture of Kylie and noted that she might look pregnant — or just a bit bloated
“Reports on social media are EXPLODING with rumors suggesting that Kylie Jenner is pregnant. One person claiming to be a friend of Kylie’s boyfriend rapper Travis Scott – says that the rapper has been telling people that he is ‘going to be a father.’
“We know it’s all just rumors, right. It can’t be true, right?
“Well before you answer that, look at the below pics of Kylie Jenner taken yesterday. She definitely looks like she’s putting on a few.”
The picture in question can be seen here and has already gone viral online.
However, there are plenty of people questioning whether Kylie Jenner is really pregnant. For one, the picture that provides the alleged proof of her pregnancy is far from conclusive and looks more like a bulky sweatshirt sitting oddly on her stomach.
There are some more practical arguments against Kylie Jenner being pregnant. As Gossip Cop pointed out, the timeline of her meeting Travis Scott simply wouldn’t allow her to be pregnant — and showing a baby bump — already.
“However, Jenner and Scott have been dating for less than two months, so even in the very unlikely scenario that the rapper impregnated the reality star the first time they met, it’s doubtful she’d already be showing a baby bump,” the rumor-debunking site noted. “In reality, the site’s photos show Jenner wearing a bulky, stretched-out sweatshirt that appears to be creating a gap of empty space between the fabric and her stomach. Regardless of the story’s improbability, Gossip Cop still checked in with a reliable source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us that Jenner simply isn’t pregnant.”
As others have pointed out, Kylie Jenner is a popular target for pregnancy speculation. Just as tabloids have reported again and again on her older sister Kim Kardashian’s alleged marital problems, they have often focused on unsubstantiated rumors that Kylie is pregnant. These reports popped up constantly during her relationship with rapper Tyga, and seem to have followed Kylie to her next relationship.
As E! News pointed out in a story last summer, Kylie has even addressed these rumors on social media and her reality show before.
“Why is everyone saying that I’m pregnant?” Kylie said in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians last year.
“Who’s the dad?” Kourtney Kardashian asked.
“I don’t know, how do people know before me?!” Kylie answered.
As the rumors of her pregnancy spread, Kylie has been busy pushing her business ventures including her cosmetics line, which just had a new launch. The pregnancy attention — real or not — may have actually helped in this respect, giving Kylie more exposure at a time when she could stand to benefit quite a bit from it.
If Kylie Jenner is indeed pregnant, then she and the family are doing a good job keeping it under wraps. Kylie hasn’t addressed the rumors, and her normally open family is keeping quiet as well.
