Pregnant or not? That’s all Kourtney Kardashian’s fans can think of today after she fueled pregnancy rumors with a cryptic Instagram post about gaining weight. This isn’t the first time recently that Kourt and her beau Travis Barker have given KUWTK fans something to talk about. They’ve been hinting that they’re engaged!
The 42-year-old media personality can’t keep her hands off of her 45-year-old guy, and now their love may be growing. Though it hasn’t been confirmed by the celebrity pair, fans are starting to buy that Kourtney is having another baby after she posted a strange photo caption on her latest Instagram story.
“Why you could be gaining weight,” Kourtney Kardashian posted for her 132 million followers. “And not because of food.”
The picture has drummed up a lot of buzz, not because of the half-eaten salad on her plate or the rest of the post-meal mess. Instead, fans are studying her over-the-picture caption that could hint at a future Kardashian-Barker. The question still remains: Is she pregnant?
Kourtney’s Wednesday story was all about “gaining weight,” and there are very few ways to do so without food. Though Kourtney could be drinking too much water, fans believe the reality star is referencing a baby bump. Kourtney has posted several pictures in the last few weeks that didn’t feature a bump in her midsection. But the Kardashian sister may be putting on some poundage in the belly section without fans noticing.
The Instagram story linked to an article on her lifestyle website, Poosh, that was all about PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome. The hormonal disorder is common and usually affects ovaries in women during childbearing years.
According to the site, PCOS causes the body to produce high levels of testosterone, which subsequently can cause weight gain in women. The article also covers low testosterone in women, which can begin at around 40 (though it points out the issue can occur at any age). Low testosterone in women can also lead to increased weight, especially in the middle of the body.
Of course, Kourtney may have just been advertising her site’s newest content, but fans are convinced the mother of three has room for one more. The reality star has left other breadcrumbs for fans to follow, like wearing loose-fitting clothes, giving up meat, fish, and alcohol. These are all common patterns in pregnant women. So it’s not out of left field to think that there is a baby on the way.
The rumor that Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant is only one secret the model has seemingly kept under the rug. Over the weekend, it was alleged that Travis Barker proposed to Kourtney, dropping to one knee in Las Vegas. According to The Sun, the Blink-182 drummer asked Kourtney to marry him during their trip to watch UFC 264.
Witnesses saw the couple packing on the PDA during the trip, and one source claims the couple finally got engaged. The Kardashian sister has not confirmed the rumors and she is doing a good job of hiding any evidence of an engagement – her ring finger is noticeably empty. It’s possible the accusations are untrue, and Travis Barker has just settled for his chest tattoo as the confession of his love.
Until we know for sure, fans will just have to stay content with Kourtney Kardashians other three children, which she shares with Scott Disick. The reality star is mom to Mason, 11, Penelope, 8, and Reign, 6, whom she co-parents with her ex.
Whether or not she is pregnant, the idea of a Barker baby is not far-fetched. Kourtney has previously mentioned that a baby with her man is in the cards, especially given how good he is with Mason, Penelope and Reign.
