Kylie Jenner's First Social Media Posts Since Her Pregnancy Rumors Keep Everyone Guessing
On Sunday, the pregnancy rumors surrounding Kylie Jenner took another twist. Jenner posted photos on Instagram for the first time since TMZ reported that she was expecting. (Jenner could not be reached by Bustle. Bustle also reached out to Travis Scott's rep, but did not receive an immediate response.) If you're looking to the photos for confirmation that the business mogul and her boyfriend, Travis Scott, will be welcoming a baby soon, then Jenner's posts may be maddening. Instead of denying or confirming the news, the star is simply doing her thing and hanging out with friends.
In the past, Jenner hasn't been shy about addressing pregnancy rumors. Having grown up in the spotlight thanks to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she's dealt with gossip about her personal life since she was still having sleepovers. Her response to the latest round of speculation almost seems coy in contrast. In one photo, she's seen hanging with her friends, and they're all sporting matching bathrobes. Meanwhile, in the second picture she flashes a portion of her stomach, but the caption is a birthday wish to her friend, Jordyn Woods. Over the weekend, Jenner also supported Scott by attending the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. Hip-hop artist French Montana posted a video of her hanging out backstage during the show on Instagram.
So, what does all of this mean in terms of Jenner potentially being an expectant mother? Not much, aside from the fact that she isn't letting rumors keep her at home or force her to make an announcement one way or the other before she's ready.
Jenner and Scott have been dating since April, but the two have kept their relationship as private as possible since then. While they are often spotted in public together, they rarely appear in each other's social media posts. As a result, there seems to be a heightened sense of curiosity surrounding their romance, and that curiosity has only been amplified by the idea that Jenner could be pregnant.
According to TMZ, sources close to the two claim they have been telling close friends and family about the news. Recently, Jenner has been posting quite a few modeling shots on her Instagram that appear to be from old shoots. She also shared a Snapchat taken while she was wearing a baggy shirt that some fans believe could conceal a baby bump. Jenner wears a similarly baggy shirt in the photo with her friend Jordyn — but just because she's wearing over-sized shirts that doesn't confirm anything. It's entirely possible she just wants to be extra comfy.
Jenner has never been secretive about wanting to have children, and the business owner has expressed her desire to start a family in her 20s. Even though she only recently turned 20, Jenner has a makeup empire and seems to know what she wants out of life. Her dreams definitely include kids, but fans are going to have to wait a little bit longer to see if that means she is ready to fulfill that particular dream at this point in her life.
For the moment, Jenner is busy spending time with her friends, family, and Scott, and she doesn't appear to be ready to tell the world whether or not she's pregnant. And that's totally OK. When she's ready to confirm or deny the rumors, Jenner will no doubt do it with style and a wink at the adoring fanbase who can't get enough of this particular member of the Kardashian-Jenner family.
