It’s been three months since Us Weekly reported that Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are expecting a baby. Three long, speculation-filled months. The Kardashian-Jenner family has yet to confirm or deny this report, but it might be because they’re waiting for the perfect, holly, and jolly moment: There’s been tons of chatter about the possibility of Khloé confirming her pregnancy on Christmas. You know, if she is indeed pregnant. (Bustle reached out to Khloé’s rep for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.)
Back in September, the news first broke Khloé is reportedly expecting her first child. This report surfaced less than a week after TMZ reported that Kylie Jenner is pregnant, and fans assumed dual confirmations were just around the corner. That was not the case. As of Dec. 19, neither pregnancy story has been confirmed.
If Khloé and Kylie are both with child, why haven't they shared the exciting news with the world? Enter: The Kardashian-Jenner family’s Christmas card photo series. As “Keeping Up with the Kontinuity Errors” writer and Kardashian-Jenner family expert Mariah Smith predicted on Dec. 3, “The Kardashian’s 25 days of Christmas/Christmas card reveal will most likely serve as our Khloe/Kylie pregnancy announcement.” This prediction feels right. If there's one family that could successfully pull off a 25-day-long pregnancy announcement rollout three months after the reports first broke, it's the Kardashian-Jenners.
Kylie has yet to appear in the photo series, and this move doesn't feel like a coincidence. As each day passes and Kylie is no where to be found, the suspense builds, and the theory that she will announce her pregnancy on the final day continues to burn. Khloé, on the other hand, has shown up in the Kardashian-Jenner family pictures. Some suspected Dream could be covering Aunt Koko's baby bump in the Day 19 pic, but Day 13 tells a different story. But just because she isn't obviously showing in Day 13 doesn't mean she's not pregnant. And it also doesn't necessarily mean she won't use the card to share this unconfirmed news. Or hey, maybe she's saving the announcement for forthcoming KUWTK episode, "Baby Fever."
Again, the pregnancy hasn't been confirmed, but there have been a lot of clues that suggest Kris Jenner's third eldest may soon be a mom. For example, on Sunday, Dec. 17, Khloé Snapchatted a selfie. A selfie that possibly contained a hint. If you look really closely, you can see what appears to be a pregnancy pillow in the reflection of Khloé’s sunglasses. Of course, this could be someone else’s pregnancy pillow. Or a different kind of pillow. Or an optical illusion. Or a smudge on her lens. But what if it's Koko's pregnancy pillow?
This snap happened some days after an intriguing Keeping Up with the Kardashians midseason trailer was unveiled. In the cryptic clip, Khloé surprises her friends and family with something. What, oh what could it possibly be? Maybe she shows off a baby bump, maybe she made lemon cake without using box mix, or maybe it really is something out of left field. Anything's possible with this family.
If Khloé and Kylie are, in fact, expecting, and if the family does use the 25 days of Christmas series to announce these to-be-confirmed pregnancies, and if these announcements happen in the Day 25 photo, then it stands to reason that the announcements will happen on Christmas. So, when Dec. 25 rolls around, be sure to keep your phone on your person at all times. Because on that day, the Kardashian-Jenner family may give the gift of announcing they're expecting more babies. And what a gift that would be.
