Khloe Kardashian’s pregnancy is the second worst-kept secret in entertainment (Kylie’s is the worst), but it looks like the family silence is about to be broken–via their show, of course. A pair of high-profile reports teases Khloe Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement on the midseason finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians so hard that the show’s long-tanking ratings might even see a bump.
Both People and Us strained their eyelids winking at what might actually, potentially, really, honestly be Khloe breaking the news of her pregnancy to family and friends in the latest episode’s promo clip. It’s also worth pointing out that the clip has mysteriously vanished from both publications’ articles — even though E! uploaded it to YouTube a few hours ago. There’s also a giant spider:
Further supporting the idea that the episode features Khloe Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement is the fact that the alleged reveal comes at the very end of the minute-long clip, and at what looks like a big family gathering. There’s also a bunch of exclaiming, though the stuff the family says is universal enough to appear in a Mad Men episode teaser. Kim shouts “Did you not know?” Kris responds “No!” Kourtney says “Oh my God!” A guest shouts “Are you kidding me?” And everyone gathers around Khloe for a group hug.
Khloe is rumored to be planning an intimate, post-baby wedding to rumored baby daddy Tristan Thompson for sometime in early 2018, after she gets her body back in TV shape. The most prevalent rumors about Khloe’s baby’s gender suggest that she’s expecting a boy — though that talk was quelled somewhat following Kim and Kylie’s pink-tastic baby showers. The best gossip about Khloe’s baby remains the one where, because Tristan has the week off anyway, she’s planning on inducing labor during the NBA All-Star Game.
In related news, Khloe had been raising eyebrows and snickers alike by hiding her baby bump behind an increasingly huge, increasingly absurd series of overcoats and handbags every time she stepped outside. (The topper came last week, when she wore what had to be either Tristan’s trenchcoat or the coat of a six-foot nine-inch person she traded with on the street.) But Khloe actually toned things down this week; here she is walking through LAX on December 11th, in an open coat at allegedly six-and-a-half months:
