Khloé Kardashian is reportedly pregnant (opens in new tab) with her first child (as is Kylie Jenner (opens in new tab)), and naturally the internet is speculating that she is Kim Kardashian's surrogate. Because yes, Kim is also expecting a baby—and happens to be due at around the same time.
Then again, the internet has been speculating that Khloé would carry Kim's child for a while now—based on the fact that she offered to a few months ago. During the Keeping Up with the Kardashians finale back in June, Kim asked Khloé the following: "I have a proposition for you. I'll give you the embryo; you carry the baby, then you give it back to me."
Khloé Kardashian Is Apparently *Also* Pregnant
After thinking about the idea, Khloé said, "Carrying a child and not having it be mine? That's a huge decision." But she went ahead and roped her boyfriend Tristan Thompson into things, who said: "It's up to KoKo. Whatever she wants to do."
So basically, we know Kim asked Khloé if she'd carry her child, we know Khloé low-key said yes, and we know Tristan was cool with it. In fact, Khloé visited a doctor to see if she'd be able to carry Kim's baby, where she learned that she has fewer follicles than expected for a woman her age:
Khloé's doctor suggested she go off the pill and eventually told her she *could* get pregnant at a follow-up appointment, at which point Khloé explained: "[Tristan] wants to have kids now. He wants to have like five or six kids with me, and that's lovely. We could start at one and we could grow from there. But now knowing I’m not on birth control is scary. It’s like a really big step.”
Now, doing some math—the season finale of KUWTK aired in June, but featured scenes of Rob Kardashian's birthday party. Rob was born in March—so assuming the various parts of this episode were filmed around the same time as each other, Khloé talked about being Kim's surrogate (and went off the pill) about six months ago. According to TMZ (opens in new tab) she is about three months along (while Us Weekly reports four months)—meaning she got pregnant three or four months after her appointment.
The question? Did she go through with her surrogacy offer after all?
