The Blac Chyna baby bump pics heard ’round the world were apparently just the 30-year-old looking “bloated” after eating a big meal. At least, that’s the story according to Blac’s reps — but fans aren’t buying it, and speculation continues to swirl.
Blac set off an avalanche of gossip when she stepped out for she and Tyga’s son King Cairo’s kindergarten garden graduation last week sporting what sure looked a whole lot like a baby bump. The Shade Room snagged a pair of pics:
As we wrote at the time, Blac’s look in the above pics is markedly different from every single photo she’s posted on her Instagram feed over the past few months. The image at the very top of the article, for example, is one that Blac shared on IG just yesterday; the tummy she flaunted last Friday has vanished like that of a wrestler trying to make weight.
But anonymous sources close to Blac have a very simple explanation. Image-conscious Chyna, they told TMZ, was “just bloated” when she went to a public event last week, and that “fans got it twisted” in the days since.
So: Nothing to see here; Blac just ate a burrito on the way to her son’s graduation. For the sake of argument, though, we’ll point out what one astute reader said in response to our initial article on the Blac Chyna baby bump. In the alleged baby bump pics, Blac’s belly button is sticking out; she also appears to have gained little to no weight elsewhere on her body.
And, as numerous other articles have mentioned since the baby bump pics went wide, Blac does have a history of getting quickly pregnant when she finds a new boo. She gave birth to King Cairo in 2012, a little over a year after she started dating Tyga; she also gave birth to Dream Kardashian in November 2016, or literally ten months after the first rumors of she and Rob’s relationship surfaced.
For what it’s worth, Blac started dating YBN Almighty Jay, her current flame, this past spring, and pregnancy talk has followed her since then.
