Unnamed "sources" close to the Kardashians have been sharing claims about there being pregnancies in the family, starting months ago with the reports that Kim Kardashian is having a child via surrogate. So, if Kim Kardashian responds to rumors of about the reported pregnancies in her family, it has to be to give fans the scoop, right? Not exactly. In fact, instead of denying or confirming anything, she's shaking her about it all. While the Kardashian crew has made a career out of broadcasting what seems like every detail about themselves, they do tend to share things on their own terms, so Kim is not having it now that "confirmations" have come out about the three reported pregnancies that aren't from the family themselves.
On Tuesday evening, it was reported that Khloé Kardashian's is pregnant and that she is three months along. It was reported on Friday, that Kylie Jenner is pregnant, five months along, and having a girl. Fans have also accepted it as fact that Kim and Kanye West are reportedly expecting their third child via a surrogate, who is due around January. There have also been reports claiming that Caitlyn Jenner gave a statement related to Kylie's reported pregnancy and that Kim was upset about her youngest sister being pregnant, both of which Kim already denied. The truth is, no family member has announced or confirmed anything.
After denying the two reports mentioned above on Tuesday, on Wednesday Kim clapped back against the rumor mill again on Twitter:
Kim's message is pretty simple: Stop trying to confirm things on behalf of my family. She doesn't mention the reported pregnancies specifically, but considering her previous tweets and the fact that they are the biggest news in the Kardashian world right now, it's not a stretch to think that's what she's talking about.
Celebrity pregnancies are exciting for fans, but they hold much more significance for the actual family. Of course, viewers who have kept up with the family for the last decade are already planning the next great spinoff and are genuinely happy for this family — especially after seeing how open Khloé has been about her desire to be a mom and hearing that Kylie wants to have children before she's 25. But it's clear that for Kim, the issue is when things are said to be "confirmed" when the actual person they involve hasn't spoken out yet — whether that be about a pregnancy or something else.
Kim's tweets aren't the first time members of the Kardashian-Jenner family have put an emphasis on confirmation recently. Speaking to The Cut on the subject of Kylie's reported pregnancy, Kris said, "She’s not confirmed anything. I think it’s kind of wild that everyone is just assuming that that’s just happening." And when asked about the surrogacy reports by Extra in early September, Kim responded, "We haven't confirmed anything."
Adding another layer, it could be that Kim's tweets are a direct response to a KUWTK Executive Producer who, according to the Mirror, posted and later deleted a congratulatory message to Khloé and boyfriend Tristan Thompson on Instagram. But the producer very well could have read the news online himself and not been attempting to confirm the news at all. (Bustle has reached out to his production company for comment, but did not receive a response at the time of publication.)
Kim is clearly frustrated by the family's lack of control over the recent reports, but she has still not confirmed or denied anything. As news, real or fake, continues to circulate about a Khloé, Kylie, and Kim reportedly expecting children, the best thing to do is take all details from "sources" with a grain of salt and wait until the real story comes out on KUWTK.
