Rob Kardashian Has a Son? His Seemingly Straight-Forward Tweet Is Really Confusing

Can someone gather Mason Disick, Penelope Disick, and North West together please? Because there's a big announcement regarding a potential cousin that they're going to want to hear. Late Thursday night, Rob Kardashian tweeted he has a son. The 27-year-old reality star wrote, "Happy I got my Son with me for the 4th tomorrow !! Can't wait to watch fireworks with my little man ! Hope everyone is safe ! X." Of course, he didn't elaborate any further, so ... by "son" does he mean offspring? Or is "son" short for "Sondheim," and Rob's just super stoked to spend the day with some of his favorite show tunes?

"Son" could mean a million things, and so could "little man," but if this is Rob's way of letting the world know he's a dad, well, more power to him. Nothing like the confines of a 140 character limit to really inspire one to be short but sweet with a fatherhood reveal. Which, frankly, is why this whole thing seems pretty fishy, especially since just hours earlier, Glee star Chris Colfer's Twitter was hacked. Perhaps Rob's account has been broken into, as well.

If it is, indeed, a hacker, he or she certainly knows how to get people talki — wait. You don't think Kris Jenner hacked Rob's account, do you?

But back to this whole Rob-could-have-a-son-thing. If we're assuming "son" means he impregnated a woman and she gave birth (and that "son" doesn't mean a close friend, or that he misspelled the name of the enormous star responsible for light on Earth, or that it's an abbreviation of the classic '90s game Sonic the Hedgehog), then this is big news. Who's the mom? How old is this boy? And when can we expect to see the tabloid covers ripping this poor kid to shreds? Shudder.

Rob's faced fatherhood rumors before, so if this is just a hack, it's not the first time he's had to deal with the subject. As recently as December, Star magazine reported he has a secret love child. The article details how Rob has allegedly hinted to his son in the past: In 2009, he supposedly tweeted to Nicole Richie about it, and in May, 2013, he apparently Instagrammed, then deleted, a post that read, "Shout to to God … Shout out Mom, shout out to my son’s mom cuz she been holding me down since high school n shout out to my son Robert the Third. lol”.


Earlier on Thursday, Khloe Kardashian shared a symbol of love and support for her brother on Instagram ... did she know what was about to be revealed? (The caption is three blue hearts, by the way.)

Are the hearts blue for baby ... boy? I'm reading too much into this, aren't I. Cool.

But! On June 20, Rob tweeted:

And followed it up with this non sequitur (that maybe makes sense only to him and his family?):

So hey, all I'm saying is that it's possible that Rob is a dad. And if he is, congrats to him. What a weight off his shoulders it must be to finally share his truth. And if he isn't, congrats to him on his manipulation skills. Lots of people are starting to believe there's another Kardashian out there in the world, which means:
