She did not show up in the 25-part Kardashian-Jenner card extravaganza, but Kylie Jenner did show up to her family’s Christmas get-togethers. As People pointed out, Khloé Kardashian Snapchatted a video on Monday that confirmed Kylie celebrated Christmas with her family. Not only was she part of the Kardashian-Jenner Christmas Day celebration, but she did go to Kris Jenner’s annual Christmas Eve soirée. Yes, even though she didn't appear in any of the social media posts taken during her mom's event Sunday evening, she was there. A source claimed to People that Kylie "looked great" at the party Sunday evening "but didn't want to draw any attention to her baby bump."
Kylie, as anyone who doesn’t live under a giant lip kit-shaped boulder knows, has been flying under the radar ever since TMZ reported that she was expecting her first child back in September. (Well, as much as a Kardashian-Jenner can fly under the radar for three months, that is.) Many suspect Kylie’s notable absence from things like the latest Kardashian-Jenner Christmas photoshoot might’ve had something to do with the unconfirmed pregnancy story; she'd stay in "hiding" until she was ready to share the news with the world, if the news is true.
However, just because Kylie wasn’t featured in this year’s Christmas card doesn’t mean she sat out for all Kardashian-Jenner family yuletide traditions. Khloé confirmed that her youngest sibling was at Kris’s day-before-Christmas party, as well part of the festivities on Christmas Day. As People reported, Kris’s third eldest posted some stuff on Snapchat with Kris’s youngest that morning.
“Merry Christmas! People think you weren’t there last night,” Khloé said to Kylie. The “last night” refers to, of course, Kris’s iconic yearly bash. Kylie promptly set the record straight: “I was." And then, Khloe called her sister a “secret little bunny.” Oh, and the bunny filter happened, too.
Kylie wasn’t the only Kardashian-Jenner kid who’s been laying low lately to make a cameo on Khloé’s social media. On Christmas morning, the mom-to-be also snapped a video with her brother, Rob Kardashian. When it was time to gather around the Christmas tree and unwrap all of the presents Santa Claus brought (or maybe it was Foodgod Claus). The entire Kardashian-Jenner crew was present and accounted for and wearing coordinating pajamas. And boy, they sure do love that bunny filter, don't they?
Granted, “Kylie was at the Kardashian-Jenner Christmas after all” wasn’t exactly the Kylie announcement everyone expected on Dec. 25. The anticipation swirling around the family’s 25 Days of Christmas photo collection reached fever pitch during those final days because many presumed the last picture would include a Kylie pregnancy reveal. No such reveal ever happened, Kylie never graced the picture series, and the pregnancy report remains unconfirmed.
At the risk of making a speculation mountain out of a molehill, here’s a question to consider: Could Koko’s “secret little bunny” remark be her way of winking at the Kylie rumors? Hm? Sure, this may be nothing, but it could be a not-so-subtle nod to a certain “secret.” And that “secret” may be a not-yet-confirmed pregnancy. And as she proved with that recent selfie where a pregnancy pillow is visible in the reflection of her sunglasses, Koko sure has a knack for dropping a clue about a not-yet-announced pregnancy on social media.
Alas, Kylie did not announce she’s with child on Christmas day like many fans predicted she would. But you know what? There is a silver lining to the cloud of impatience: It looks like the family really had themselves a merry holiday. And given all of the ups and downs the Kardashian-Jenners have been through, it’s always a nice thing to see all of them kelebrating together.
