If there’s one thing everyone wants for Christmas, it’s a confirmed Kylie Jenner pregnancy announcement. The 20-year-old reality star is reportedly expecting her first child with rapper boyfriend Travis Scott, but she has yet to go public with the happy news. Which means fans and social media detectives have to spend an inordinate amount of time digging for clues. It’s pretty exhausting, but perhaps the end is near. Ever since Jenner sent her BFF to accept a beauty award, fans figure that’s basically like a real confirmation. So Merry Christmas, everyone!
Jenner has been keeping things super low-key over the past few months, ever since it was initially reported at the end of September by Us Weekly that the young cosmetic mogul and the “Goosebumps” rapper were allegedly expecting their first child. At the time, sources claimed that Jenner was around four month pregnant with a baby girl. Since then, Jenner has been heavy on the smoke and mirrors, and light on any actual confirmation (or denial). But perhaps that’s just what she was doing when she sent model Jordyn Woods, and her longtime best friend, to accept her WWD Beauty Inc. Newsmaker of the Yearaward, as People reported on Thursday.
And fans are certainly convinced that Jenner’s notable absence is *proof* that these pregnancy rumors are true. Romper reached out to Kylie Jenner’s rep for comment and is awaiting a reply.
Why are fans so certain that Jenner’s absence must mean that she’s definitely pregnant? Well, for one thing, Jenner has historically been more than happy to attend glamorous events. She’s been a mainstay at the Billboard Music Awards, the Met Gala, MuchMusic Video Awards (which she and sister Kendall Jenner co-hosted in 2014)… and she wasn’t even winning a prestigious award herself in those cases. And it seems unlikely that she would miss out on accepting an award from WWD, the publication that effectively legitimized Kylie Cosmetics back in August by announcing that it was well on its way to becoming a billion dollar brand. Under normal circumstances, this seems like the perfect opportunity for the young entrepreneur to strut her stuff and reign triumphant as the Newsmaker of the Year.
It was a privilege to accept the award for NewsMaker of The Year in honor of @kyliecosmetics this morning amongst so many brilliant people at @wwd Beauty Inc Awards💓 Every award winner well deserved it and I will continue to be inspired. @kyliejenner only 20 years old and have already built such a respectable name in beauty! I couldn’t be a more proud best friend but not only that a fan. Your work ethic and dedication to your brand is motivational. This is only the very beginning! Congratulations to all. Everyone left feeling like a winner. Also quick little shoutout to @rebecca_alaniz for helping me get this outfit together so last minute ✨
Perhaps because, as has often been reported, Jenner is actually around 7-months-pregnant. And it would be extremely difficult to hide a third trimester pregnancy, as she has been doing the few times she’s been caught by paparazzi in public. Jenner, like her sister Khloe Kardashian who is also reportedly pregnant, has been hiding her possible baby bump under baggy sweatpants. She’s also been considerably less active on social media.
And fans think the time has finally come to confess.
