Twitter loves a bonkers as hell theory and the brand new rumor that Kylie Jenner is pregnant has given fans a hell of a source for inspiration. In fact, within seconds of TMZ breaking the news that the youngest Jenner sister may be with child, the "Kylie is Kim Kardashian's surrogate" conspiracy theory was born. Of course, Jenner hasn't officially commented on the rumor yet (Jenner's reps could not be reached for comment on the pregnancy rumors), so jumping to the why behind the pregnancy probably isn't all that prudent yet. Still, trying to stop fans on Twitter is like willing a snowball to roll back up hill. Update: People and Page Six have also confirmed reports that Jenner is pregnant. People also confirms that the child is reportedly boyfriend Travis Scott's child, effectively busting Twitter's fun, but insane theory.
Earlier: Of course, fans can be forgiven for being so desperate for updates from their favorite oversharing family that they've resorted to inventing possible histories for the Kardashians and Jenners. After all, Kim Kardashian has been rather tight-lipped about the whole reported surrogate affair, despite most of the internet basically assuming the possible procedure as straight-up fact. It's unlikely Kardashian will give fans anything, especially considering her memorable "reaction" to the reports in a Hollywood Reporter article in August. All the media maven deigned to tell her fans was:
There have been a lot of things said and Kanye and I have not confirmed anything. We're definitely trying. We are hoping so.
Now, that lack of information, combined with a mysterious report from TMZ regarding a potential Jenner pregnancy, is a surefire recipe for theories. And this one, while pretty unlikely, is still wildly entertaining to think about. After all, isn't one of the things we love about the Kardashian-Jenners their at times oddly close familial bonds? (Yes. The answer is a resounding and hearty "yes.")
Some Fans Are Simply Entertaining The Would-Be Twist
Ah, the innocent enough "what if" tweet. Wouldn't it be crazy if that happened? Yes, but not enough to readily declare it in a tweet. Yet.
Some People Have Basically Accepted It As True
These folks have buckled in and doubled down on the theory. They're preparing themselves emotionally, mentally, and, apparently, taking the time to pre-program their DVRs.
Others Aren't So Convinced
She's got a point. Wouldn't that just be too perfect? Like a story written in reality TV heaven? A dose of skepticism in times like these is healthy, OK, everyone?
And Then There's The Guy Who Broke This Theory Before Y'all Broke Out Your Clever Tweets
Hate to break it to you...
Your tweets were certainly funny — they just weren't first.
Of course, it's all fun and theories until the truth comes out. If Jenner is really pregnant — whether the rumored child is hers with her boyfriend, Travis Scott, or Twitter's dreams that she's Kim's surrogate come true — she's carrying a very real life into this world. Luckily, some fans are focused on some far less soap opera-esque possibilities:
And in light of the now numerous reports that Jenner is pregnant with her boyfriend's child (rather than that of Kimye) it seems like time to let this wacky rumor go. It was fun while it lasted — living in a world where something so insane could actually be true. But I suppose we'll have to settle for the future episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians wherein pairs of brand new babies get to bond on screen with their slightly older toddler cousins right before our eyes. Man, all that adorableness would just be the worst.
I suppose we'll manage.
