The public has been hungry for details about Kylie Jenner's rumored pregnancy since the new broke on Friday, Sept. 22. On the following Monday, fans were still digging for clues about Jenner's pregnancy, including a Travis Scott tweet that may have cryptically confirmed Jenner's pregnancy. (When the baby news first broke, Bustle reached out to Scott's rep for comment, but has yet to receive a response; Jenner's rep could not be reached.) Additionally, on Monday, reports circulated that the reality star's mother, Kris Jenner, was refusing to confirm or deny that Jenner was pregnant.

However, according to Cosmopolitan, there may have been confirmation hiding in plain sight all along, thanks to a tweet and two Snapchats shortly after, all posted by Scott, Jenner's boyfriend. Back on June 12, Scott tweeted out, "Legit happiest day of my life" with no context or follow-up. It's a simple and clear enough tweet on its own, but considering the rumors that Jenner may be a few months pregnant, it theoretically lines up. It's also worth noting that it appears that Scott didn't have any professional events that day (like a concert or the release of an album) that would have warranted this kind of a tweet. (Bustle reached out to Scott's rep about this tweet in particular, but did not receive an immediate response.)

Scott reportedly followed up this tweet the following day with two successive Snapchats. The pictures showcased his-and-hers tattoos of a butterfly — one on Jenner's ankle, the other on Scott's ankle. There's no captions to go with the photos, and there's always a chance that the couple randomly decided to get matching tattoos. However, it's hard to ignore the symbolism of a butterfly, which could be interpreted to mean growing up, moving into a new phase of life, a beautiful new beginning, or other ideas about a fresh start that come from emerging from a chrysalis (read: an old state of being) and into a new chapter of one's life.

It's also tough to ignore that Scott's social media posting around this time strongly implies that Jenner had found out she's pregnant and they may have been celebrating that news. It's not to say that Scott and Jenner couldn't be happy and in love in the early stages of their relationship (they'd only be together a few months when Scott posted the tweet and photos above), but if these rumors prove to be true, then it feels as if these could be pieces of evidence

Since the rumors broke on Friday, there has been rampant speculation about every aspect of Jenner's life in the past few months. While some outlets have chosen to do an analysis of Jenner's potential baby bump ("Is she showing?", "Is she not showing?", etc.), others — including Bustle — have been following up on reports about members of Jenner's extended family possibly confirming her pregnancy. In a statement reported by The Sun, Caitlyn Jenner's reps reportedly commented, "All I can tell you is that it was some time ago," when asked whether or not Jenner had told her she was pregnant. The rest of Jenner's family remains tight-lipped about the rumors and have not released any statements on the matter.

For her part, Jenner is still posting to social media with no indication that she is choosing to acknowledge the rumors. Since the reports came out, Jenner has posted three photos to her Instagram, including one where she poses with bestie Jordyn Woods and a giraffe, and another where she is hanging out with her friends in cozy bathrobes taking selfies. On Monday, her most recent post was a throwback photo of her promoting one of her Kylie Lip Kit colors, "Mary Jo."

Every fan theory and wisp of an idea about what the truth is regarding Jenner's rumored pregnancy are up for grabs at this point. Even though Scott's posts from June seem definitive, it's best to consider all possibilities and, most importantly, respect Jenner's choice to talk about it in her own time.
