Will Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna's Baby Be On 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'? There's A Clear Precedent Here
If your Twitter timeline was suddenly full of people trying to figure out if someone can simultaneously be someone else's mom and their aunt on Friday, there was a good reason. On Friday afternoon, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna announced they are expecting a baby using emojis on Instagram (What a sentence! What a world!), and people began wondering what this would mean for the Kardashian-Chyna-Jenner-Tyga family tree. Chyna already has a child with Tyga, who dates Rob's younger sister Kylie Jenner, so the whole thing is pretty confusing. But none of that really matters because the point is Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are having a child... who may or may not be on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
I'm sorry, but I don't think it's too early to wonder if this kid will be part of a reality TV series. Yes, he or she may not be born yet, but we're talking about a show that has previously featured five pregnancies and two no-detail-sparred birth scenes that featured Kourtney Kardashian literally pulling a tiny human out of herself. New life coming into the world is a beautiful thing, and these people have featured nearly every aspect of that on their reality show, so no, it's not too soon to ask if the new baby is going to be on the show too.
If you asked me two weeks ago if a #ChyRo baby would be featured, I would've said no, because Rob hadn't been on the show for at least an entire season. But, on the premiere episode of KUWTK Season 12, which aired Sunday, May 1, Rob was featured in conversation amongst the family members and was part of a phone call — a phone call in which Kendall Jenner yelled at him for re-gifting a present she gave him by giving it to Blac Chyna. Yep, Chyna and Rob have both already been brought up this season, and in previews for the remaining episodes Rob is clearly featured.
It seems to me that the 29-year-old sock entrepreneur is returning to his rightful place on E! and I have no doubts he's bringing Blac Chyna with him. This means that there's a chance Chyna's pregnancy will be part of the series. After all, Chyna, Kim Kardashian, and Rob were reportedly spotted outside of a OB/GYN's office together, and Chyna and Kylie are getting along now. They may have all already filmed scenes together!
As for whether Rob or Chyna want their kids on the show, they haven't yet made that known, but all of Rob's sisters' children have been featured in some capacity, so it's not like this is a "no kids allowed" environment. Kourtney's kids are on the show all the time and Kim's daughter, North West, while featured less, has still made plenty of appearances. The only clue that they wouldn't want their kid on the show is that Chyna's son with Tyga, Cairo, has never been featured, but if I had to guess that might have more to do with Tyga not being part of any major story lines of his own... yet.
Only time will tell, but in my expert reality TV watching opinion, I would not be surprised if the pregnancy, birth, and subsequent existence of this human are documented in some form on KUWTK.
