Khloé Kardashian announced her pregnancy in December 2017, just a few months before she gave birth to daughter True. If you recall, Khloé’s pregnancy rumors started around September 2017, but she played coy while the world wondered what was going on. There were also some rumors that Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal affected her timeline for going public with her pregnancy (he was photographed kissing an unknown woman in October 2017), though Khloé revealed on Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she was so secretive about her baby bump because she wanted Kylie Jenner’s seal of approval.
Kylie famously didn’t announce her pregnancy until Stormi was born, but for a while in December 2017, Kylie was “going back and forth” deciding whether or not to announce the news. While Kylie made up her mind, Khloé thought it was best to do nothing, as she didn’t want to upstage her younger sister, who was due first.
“I am really anxious to announce my pregnancy, but Kylie is three months ahead of me, and I want to give her her own time to shine and do her thing,” Khloé said in the episode.
Khloé said that one of the reasons she wished she could announce the news sooner was because people were criticizing her for her weight gain. She also said that “people are super invasive, and they’re just not being respectful. Everyone’s trying to bump into me to feel something.”
Eventually, Kylie called her older sister and gave her the go-ahead. “I don’t think I’m ever going to announce that I’m pregnant,” Kylie told her. “So I think that you should go ahead… You don’t have to wait for me.”
