There are seriously people out there who think this could be true. TMZ broke the story on September 22 that Kylie Jenner, 20, was pregnant with her first child. At the time of the announcement, Kylie is dating rapper Travis Scott. This relationship came after her acrimonious split from rapper Tyga. Meanwhile, Hollywood Life is reporting that Tyga is not too happy with Jenner’s news. Since the original TMZ report, the gossip site ran a new story showing Jenner out for dinner, though we’re all still waiting for an official confirmation.
Not long after the news spread across the internet did the Twittersphere explode into conspiracy theories about the pregnancy. Jenner has only been dating Scott since April 2017. Some Twitter users are pushing the theory that Jenner is acting as Kim and Kanye’s surrogate. People Magazine reports that Jenner is due in February.
It had earlier been reported that Kim’s surrogate is due in January. That, as of September, would make the surrogate five months pregnant.
Those rumors, like most conspiracy theories, ignore the facts. It’s previously been reported that Kim and Kanye’s surrogate has previously birthed a child for a couple. It’s also been reported, by TMZ, that the surrogate is a black woman in her 20s, has been married for five years and has two boys of her own. That TMZ report also notes that the surrogate is a Democrat. Jenner’s politics are unknown.
While US Weekly reported that Kimye found their San Diego-based surrogate through an agency. That article also indicated that the surrogate is to adhere to strict guidelines including no drinking, smoking, hot tubs, raw fish or cat litter. It had been well-documented that Kardashian’s two pregnancies were troubled due to a condition known as placenta accreta.
