In the latest of many theories surrounding the Kardashian-Jenner babies, a new magazine cover photo has led fans to wonder if Kylie Jenner’s Love magazine interview will confirm her pregnancy. The cover of the publication's Spring/Summer 2018 issue, which is set to be released in February, features a close-up of the 20-year-old reality star donning a chunky red turtleneck sweater and matching lip hue. Kylie shared the snapshot on Instagram on Christmas day, writing,
"Merry Christmas! Thank you @thelovemagazine @kegrand for this special cover shot by @kendalljenner & interview by @krisjenner #love19"
As expected amidst the pregnancy rumors, Kylie kept her circle very tight while prepping for the mag's cover, as People reported that the lip kit entrepreneur opted to do her own makeup, while her big sis Kendall Jenner served as the shoot's photographer. To make the situation even more curious, momager-in-charge Kris Jenner conducted the interview with her youngest child. The entire arrangement could potentially be part of Kylie's overall plan to keep her unconfirmed pregnancy under wraps until she's ready to make the grand announcement to fans.
According to People, when speaking of her makeup empire, Kylie told Love,
“I was just trying to keep up with myself. All businesses, every company, makes little mistakes here and there. Growing it in front of so many people all of a sudden was kind of hard.”
It sounds as if Kylie has a lot on her plate at the moment, perhaps lending more clarity to her reason for remaining tight-lipped when it comes to aspects of her personal life.
It's currently unclear whether or not the Love cover shoot will become the official reveal, however, it's worth noting that Kylie is reportedly due sometime in February — the exact same month that the issue is scheduled to make its debut. Therefore, it's wouldn't be farfetched for the rumored baby's birth to coincide with the article's release date. It's also quite possible that Kylie could be waiting until after the baby arrives to share the news, like many celebrity moms such as Eva Mendes, Alexis Bledel, Isla Fisher, and Anna Kournikova have done in the past.
That said, Kylie has been noticeably absent in light of the baby rumors which dropped back in September. She has yet to confirm or comment on anything, but fans went into a frenzy upon the realization that Kylie didn't participate in the family's annual Christmas card photo shoot when the grand finale was released on Dec. 25. Her absence from the photo series only adds more fuel to the pregnancy chatter as followers began to create their own theories about her silence.
Despite her non-participation in the family photo, the youngest Kardashian-Jenner sib did, however, make a grand appearance over the Christmas holiday, resurfacing at her mother's annual celebration. Though no photos of Kylie's rumored baby bump were revealed from the bash, there were a few snapshots of the potential mom-to-be and her rapper boyfriend Travis Scott at the soirée. Kylie was also spotted in photos alongside her pregnant older sister, Khloé Kardashian.
It seems now that Khloé and Kim Kardashian-West have both confirmed their babies on the way, the spotlight has zoomed in on Kylie, who is reportedly welcoming a baby girl around the same time that Khloé's baby with boyfriend Tristan Thompson is due. The three upcoming additions to the family will make grandchildren number seven, eight, and nine for the family's matriarch, Kris Jenner.
While it’s unclear whether or not the Love magazine article will become the official moment of reveal of Kylie’s pregnancy, it’s safe to say that the news has to be coming sometime in the near future as Kylie can only keep people guessing for so long.
