Why Fans Think Kylie Jenner was Kim Kardashian West’s Surrogate
A lot of exciting things are going on behind the scenes in our favorite celebs' lives lately. The Jonas Brothers could be getting back together, Taylor Swift is sending secret messages through her music videos, and the mystery of Kylie Jenner‘s pregnancy might have finally been solved.
You have to be the Nancy Drew of 2018 to keep up with everything.
As you probably know, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed their third child into the world on January 15. The baby girl, whose name is yet to be shared, will be the younger sister of North West (age 4) and Saint West (age 2). Kim posted a photo of herself yesterday on Instagram with the caption, “#momofthree.”
Kim was very open about the fact that she was unable to carry their third baby herself due to placenta accreta, a life-threatening medical condition that can cause the placenta to stay attached to the uterine wall after childbirth, and that she and Kanye opted to use a surrogate to continue growing their family.
“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give,” Kim wrote in the official birth announcement.
However, just a few days ago the internet was whipped into a frenzy when rumors that Kylie Jenner had gone into labor surfaced. Kylie's alleged pregnancy has become the number one conspiracy theory of the year, with fans finding “clues” in everything — her Instagram photos, her makeup releases, her mysterious absence from the Kardashian-Jenner family Christmas photo. In a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kylie even caught one of her employees trying to snap a stealthy photo of her in her own kitchen to, we're assuming, sell to the media for big bucks.
Is it just coincidence that the birth of Kim's third baby via surrogate lined up almost perfectly with the rumored timeline of Kylie's pregnancy? Fans certainly don't think so.

Some fans think the entire thing was a publicity stunt concocted by “Mom-ager” Kris Jenner.

And some fans still believe that Kylie was pregnant, but with her own baby with Travis Scott, not with Kim and Kanye's baby.
Kylie was not Kim and Kanye's surrogate, pls.
it doesn't make sense.
she's pregnant tho, with her own kid.
— nah. that ain't it y'all. (@Nqubeko_) January 16, 2018
To be honest, this last one is the most plausible theory for several reasons. Let's not forget that several insiders have said both Kylie and Travis were excited about having a bun in the oven. Also, from a scientific standpoint, experts say it's much safer to have a surrogate mother who has given birth already — something we know 20-year-old Kylie has not. It doesn't seem like anyone in the Kardashian-Jenner fam would want to risk it with the newest addition to the Kardashian empire.
Khloe Kardashian also recently announced that she's pregnant with her first baby with professional basketball player Tristan Thompson. What is in that Calabasas tap water?
