Is Kylie Jenner Pregnant, and Should We Care?

by Rebecca Raub

It is all over the news and various social media outlets that 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is rumored to be pregnant. Not only is Jenner said to be pregnant, but five whole months pregnant.

Jenner is famous for being Kim Kardashian’s, the famous social media star, sister. Jenner also has a very successful makeup company called “Kylie Cosmetics” and is a model and social media star. We have not yet seen confirmation about the pregnancy, but the news was announced last Friday.

Jenner has been in a relationship with rapper Travis Scott since April 2017, and he is reportedly the father. He has been supposedly bragging to his friends about the baby for almost two months, according to various social media outlets.

Season 14 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the Kardashian’s hit reality TV show, airs this Sunday, so maybe we will find out if Jenner is actually with child and if so, if the father is Scott (not Disick, hopefully). Maybe this is a publicity scam to bring attention to the Kardashians/Jenners. The news outlet “Harper’s Bazaar” tweeted about the pregnancy scandal to which older sister Kim responded, “This sounds like a very fake story…” [1]. Maybe Kim is trying to keep the pregnancy low key.

WHS students and staff have very mixed opinions about the news of Jenner’s pregnancy. Senior Bryce Miller stated, “I don’t really, as they say, keep up with Kardashians, so I don’t care. But if it is true, I hope she names the baby after me.” I think Jenner definitely will.

Freshman Leslie Hilares said, “I don’t care about that family and it’s probably just an excuse to get more plastic surgery.” That was a bit harsh, Hilares Junior Molly Lynch laughed and said, “I think it is a publicity stunt, but it could be real.”

Lastly, Intro to Business teacher Regina Stelma had some interesting things to say. “I’ve been pregnant five times. It’s not like it’s a big deal, no way. Is she even married? Who on earth cares?” It seems people are very opinionated about the news of the pregnancy.

Is Jenner actually pregnant? Is Scott the father? Will the baby be made out of plastic? Or even better, will the baby be a chicken? Find out on Sunday on Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E!
