The world was collectively surprised and quickly became obsessed with the reports and rumors that entrepreneur and reality star Kylie Jenner might be expecting a child with boyfriend Travis Scott on Friday, Sept. 22. Although the 20-year-old has spoken numerous times about wanting to start a family at a young age, Kylie's reported pregnancy just seemed like the last thing anyone was expecting to hear on a Friday afternoon. Just as we were all still digesting the unexpected news, Kylie's mom Kris Jenner addressed the pregnancy rumors to multiple outlets at Milan Fashion Week, but neither confirmed nor denied them. It was a curious move on Kris's part, but perhaps she's intentionally not saying anything specific so that Kylie can make her own official announcement, if she is in fact pregnant. (Kylie's reps could not be reached by Bustle. Bustle also reached out to Scott's rep, but did not receive an immediate response.)

Kris attended the Bottega Veneta show on Saturday, Sept. 23, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And before you start asking why she was there, Kylie's sister Kendall Jenner was actually walking in the show, which was showcasing a collection by designer Tomas Maier. Additionally, Kris claims to be a big fan of the brand, so it stands to reason that her appearance has nothing to do with the pregnancy rumors.

When asked about whether or not Kylie was expecting, Kris said she was surprised to wake up to the social media storm regarding her rumors about her daughter, THR reports. "It wouldn't be the family if something didn't happen every single day," she said.

Kris also spoke to The Cut while sitting front row at the Bottega Veneta show about the rumors. "She's not confirmed anything," she said of Kylie, "I think it's kind of wild that everyone is just assuming that that's just happening." Notice however, that Kris didn't dismiss the rumors or say flat out that they were false.

Although she wouldn't confirm whether or not Kylie was pregnant, Kris did share her love of Bottega Veneta in a rather interesting way, especially considering all of the rumors swirling about her daughter. According to THR, Kris said she had been a fan of the brand since she was pregnant with Kourtney Kardashian (her eldest child). "I got so big," she said of her pregnancy. "All I could do was go to Bottega Veneta and buy the most amazing handbag I could find," Kris continued, "and carry it around in front of me." Could it be a coincidence that Kris shared a story about using a purse to carry in front of her pregnancy bump? It does seem a little unlikely considering how media savvy Kris has always seemed to be.

TMZ first reported news that Kylie and Scott were expecting a child, and multiple sources also allegedly confirmed the rumors to People. According to TMZ, the couple recently began telling friends earlier in the month, and they are both reportedly excited about the pregnancy. "It is an unexpected but completely amazing turn of events that she could not be more excited or thrilled about," an unnamed source reportedly close to Kylie told People. "Everyone is overjoyed for her," the insider continued. "This is the happiest she’s ever been."

Kylie and Scott have manage to keep their relationship relatively private, especially considering how insanely famous Kylie is. It was first rumored that the two were dating this past April, and there were even rumors (that were proven to be false) that Kylie and Scott had gotten married over the summer. Following her very public former relationship with Tyga, it's been speculated that Kylie is intentionally keeping her relationship with Scott as low profile as possible.

If Kylie is in fact expecting a child then perhaps Kris is waiting to say anything specific until Kylie has had the chance to make an official announcement of her own so that she can take control of the narrative about her pregnancy. Or, perhaps Kylie isn't yet ready to confirm anything, or maybe she'll keep her pregnancy as private as her relationship with Scott. Until there's an official confirmation all we can do right now is speculate.
