Well this is very interesting.
You’re probably more than aware of the fact that not one, not two, but three Kardashian/Jenner sisters are currently expecting babies.
Kim is expecting her third child via surrogate in January, while Kylie and Khloé are both pregnant with their first babies.
While Kim has confirmed her news, the family hasn’t made a single comment on the reports that Kylie and Khloé are also pregnant.

Up until recently, it was widely assumed that the family would reveal the pregnancies on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
After all, stirring up media interest in a rumour concerning the family and waiting to address the subject on Keeping Up With The Kardashians is a tried and tested method have used throughout their decade in the public eye.
The news of the pregnancies broke just a week before Season 14 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians hit our screens, so it was generally assumed that we’d get some form of confirmation or reveal in the season opener.
However, it came and went with no mention of any babies.
WELL, now a new and very compelling theory has emerged: That the Kardashians will confirm Kylie and Khloé’s pregnancies on their annual Christmas card.
This theory was first floated months ago, but only gained credence this week when it became clear that rather than unveiling the card in its entirety, the family will actually be offering snippets of it each day.
It’s this slow unveiling of the card that makes the theory all the more plausible.
After all, if we’re receiving an image of a different family member each day, a photo of Kylie and Khloé with their baby bumps could end up being the last one released before the whole card is unveiled.
Or they won’t feature in the 25 Days of Christmas reveals at all, but will instead unveil them in all their pregnant glory when the card is released on Christmas Day.
And let’s not forget that Kris Jenner hosts an annual Christmas Eve party from which the family often share photos.
It would make sense, then, for the full card to be unveiled at midnight if Khloé and Kylie actually want to appear in any photos from the party.
But all of this hypothesising has got me thinking about a possible sub-theory, because if the family doesn’t confirm the news on KUWTK, it’d be a huge and unprecedented break from tradition.
Now, programming suggests that the mid-season finale for series 14 of KUWTK will air on 17 December.
So, perhaps this will be a staggered announcement, with the pregnancies being confirmed in a trailer at the end of the mid-season finale teasing the second half of the season, before Khloé and Kylie’s bumps are revealed on the Christmas card a week later.
Either way, there’s a lot to ponder here.
