Kourtney Kardashian Is Reportedly Not Pregnant, Despite Recent ‘Hints’ To The Contrary
Kourtney Kardashian is not pregnant, sources told TMZ Monday. Hints that have popped up on social media and in an E! network promo for Keeping Up with the Kardashian are evidently not what they appear to be.
It seems that speculation first began a few weeks ago. Back on September 15, E! dropped a trailer for Season 19 of the soon-ending reality series. The clip, which can be seen below via YouTube, focused mainly on the clan’s reaction to the coronavirus pandemic, such as having to home-school their kids.
However, as TMZ reported at the time, the trailer insinuated that not only are Kourtney and Scott back together, but they’re expecting baby No. 4.
Further, the outlet pointed to some other so-called evidence in which the preview hinted at a baby brewing. Neither Kourtney nor Scott – who are parents to sons Mason and Reign, and daughter Penelope – were thought to be romantically linked to anyone else at the time, suggesting that perhaps they were ready to give their relationship another shot.
Similarly, in an Instagram post that she later deleted, Kourtney didn’t react to the supposed hints at a pregnancy in the preview.
“Check out Kourtney’s reaction, or lack thereof. It’s revealing, to say the least,” TMZ said of the post.
A few days later, on September 25, the rumor mill kicked into overdrive when Kourtney posted a photo on Instagram showing a shadow cast by her hand. To some viewers, the way she held her fingers looked as if she was deliberately creating a shadow of a woman sporting a baby bump.
It didn’t help matters that Kourtney provided absolutely no caption and no context for the pic, save for an emoji of a zebra, which was a clear nod to her shirt sleeve.
It didn’t take fans long to begin speculating.
“I’m confused???? Is she pregnant?” wrote one user.
“Are you pregnant or just me,” asked another.
Now, just a couple of weeks later, it’s obvious that the trailer was cleverly edited to be a teaser for the new season, and the Instagram shadow was nothing more than Kourtney having some fun.
Meanwhile, sources also confirm that Kourtney and the father of her kids are not back together, though they reportedly remain good friends while co-parenting.
“Scott is so happy that he and Kourtney get along so well and how easy it is with her. It’s weird to everyone else, but not to them. They are really like best friends,” a source told Us Weekly earlier this year.
