Khloe Kardashian’s third trimester is here, and the 33-year-old first-time mom celebrated the occasion with a handful of brand new, official pics featuring her baby bump, baby daddy Tristan Thompson, and good vibes all around.
Khloe, who as recently as three weeks ago was going to absurd lengths to hide her baby bump behind increasingly ludicrous objects, has now flaunted the bump in a string of public pictures starting with her pregnancy confirmation just before Christmas. The simple social media declaration surprised fans and observers alike, as we’ve all been trained to expect the highest-possible profile reveal of major Kardashian news. (Recall that the big story just before the reveal was that Khloe planned to make the announcement at the end of Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ midseason finale, and that the episode trailer was structured to encourage that storyline.)
Now, though, getting Khloe Kardashian’s third trimester baby bump pics is as easy as checking her Instagram feed:
So it sounds like Khloe and Tristan are as happy as could be, and God bless them for it. But we’re also sad to report that with this confirmation of Khloe Kardashian’s third trimester comes the death of our favorite rumor about Khloe’s pregnancy, and probably favorite Kardashian rumor from 2017: namely, that Khloe had been planning on taking advantage of Tristan Thompson’s forthcoming week-long break from his day job and inducing labor during the NBA All-Star Game in February.
That rumor had everything: absurdity, gusto, a flair for the dramatic, and just enough outlandishness to seem both totally implausible and obviously likely at the exact same time. It was like Kylie Jenner and Tyga’s relationship: as fully functional as it was completely impossible. Most Kardashian rumors are far less fun. We still have the gossip about Khloe and Tristan’s alleged post-pregnancy nuptials to look forward to…but it isn’t the same.
And yes, we know Khloe already tweeted out she was about to be six months along. Maybe we didn’t want to believe it:
I'll be 6 months next week 🤰🏼 https://t.co/8F6dvoJqLM

Khloe’s still hiding her baby bump from paparazzi, though. Here she is trying to move her closet through LAX on New Year’s Eve:
