For months, Khloé Kardashian dropped clues that she was pregnant on social media. She posted pictures carefully cropped above the belly. In the background of one photo, fans spotted a full-body pillow, which women are known to use specifically for pregnancy. And she posted the Instagram comment “Hey daddy,” with four hearts, to her boyfriend, basketball player Tristan Thompson. What a tease! Whenever she went out to eat, she probably ordered the “baby shrimp” and winked at the waiter for ten minutes.
But yesterday the guessing game finally came to an end. Khloé officially confirmed she was knocked up, by sharing a photo of her baby bump with her 70.8 million followers. In the caption, she thanked God and her husband Tristan, calling this “her greatest dream realized!” She also apologized for stringing along her followers with baby-shaped breadcrumbs, writing “I know we’ve been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately.”
Shortly afterward, her baby daddy, Tristan, responded in the comments, writing “I’m soo happy to be on this journey together with you and creating this angel from the man above. Everyday I give thanks to him for bring us together. I love you soo much and I know our little angel feels the love we share together and will know that mommy and daddy loves them unconditional forever and ever amen.” It sounds like they’re going to be a great mom and dad. If they pick a “K” name for their child, I hope they go with “Kakorrhaphiophobia.”
While the other 9,000 members of the Kardashian Krew haven’t commented on Khloé’s pregnancy, this morning her “momager,” Kris Jenner, reacted on Instagram. Remember, this is big news for her, too. Khloé and Tristan’s baby will be Kris’ seventh grandchild. (Her other six grandchildren are Mason Disick, Penelope Disick, Reign Disick, North West, Saint West, and Dream Kardashian.)
Mom kept her reaction short and sweet. She simply reposted Khloé’s black and white baby bump picture, writing the caption: “God is so good!! I am beyond excited! What a blessing!!!!!!!” That’s a lovely message, but I was hoping she’d write a little more. If she can’t think of anything, just hand the computer to Kim’s baby daddy, Kanye West. He’ll probably write at least 2,000 words.
In case you’re keeping track, we are officially two for three on the Kardashian Pregnancy Watch. Previously, Kim announced that her next child is due soon, through her surrogate. Then we finally received confirmation from Khloé and Tristan. Kylie Jenner, who’s dating rapper Travis Scott, is heavily rumored to be knocked up. Inside sources have basically confirmed she’s with child. However, we’re still waiting for official confirmation.
I don’t know about you, but I can barely sleep at night, not knowing whether or not Kylie Jenner is pregnant. Hopefully Special Counsel Robert Mueller stops investigating whether or not Donald Trump colluded with Russia, and starts investigating Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy. Priorities are priorities. The public needs to know.
