Look, we know that we are up to our bloody eyeballs in Kardashian-Jenner pregnancy theories, but there is a new, even more obscure one on the block which you simply have to hear. Why? #1. Because you're going to be swamped with theories until the famous finally admit that there are babies on the way. And #2. Because it involves doughnuts.
If you are a keen bean and watched the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians as it aired, you would have seen a scene where Kylie Jenner gives her sisters boxes of bright pink, personalised doughnuts.
The first reaction of the Twittersphere was that the colour was a dead giveaway that Kylie is expecting a little baby girl — using the deep-fried snack as her gender reveal vessel.
This isn't a far-fetched theory, as the fam send each other ridiculous presents on the daily, so it's odd that the show would focus so much on these damn doughnuts. Even deadpan Kourtney exaggerates the whole thing when she says to her niece, "North, you want to see something?!" before taking a bite of the rumour-stuffed doughnut.
Kylie, who has pulled back her social media activity since the pregnancy rumours started making rounds, has managed to feature a hell of a lot of pink in her few posts — including her nails, lipsticks, her Christmas tree and her furniture, which are all pink. Snapchat psychologists (not a thing, but roll with it) have determined that this may be a not-so-subtle clue that Kylie is preggers with a baby girl.
However, things get to a whole new level of deep, deep Kardashian analysis with this next theory…
If you re-watch the episode, you'll notice that the one sister Kylie fails to give a box of doughnuts too is big sis, Kim Kardashian. Now this may be down to the fact that her treats were delivered elsewhere, or maybe, just maybe, she didn't get any gender-reveal doughnuts because she already knows the gender, because it's HER BABY.
I know what you're thinking:
The answer to that is, no. And we have the receipts to back it up.
Think about it, it's not the ~most~ ridiculous theory as we know the following facts:
- Kim and Kanye are using a surrogate to have their third baby. Kim has confirmed it on multiple occasions — both on KUWTK and on talk shows.
- Kim and Kanye are expecting a baby girl. She let it slip on Ellen that she was having a little girl when sharing a story about North asking questions about "baby sister".
- Kim and Kanye's surrogate due date is in January — which is around the rumoured time that Kylie is meant to be popping out her kid.
So, technically Kylie could be the surrogate, with Kim just generating a fake story about her surrogate as a cover for Kylie while she brews her baby. Also, having Kylie be the surrogate works well for Kimye, as obviously they would be concerned with the security around outsourcing their pregnancy to a random. Keeping it in the family (literally) is a better solution, as Kylie can be surrounded by security and there is way less of a chance that she would turn on Kim and Kanye and try to keep the baby for herself.
That being said, it's still all a bit weird. It's a big ask for a 20 year old to be your surrogate — particularly when that 20-year-old is a business mogul, social media star and perhaps one of the most famous girls in the world. But the Kardashian-Jenner family are always harping on about how their bond is unbreakable and 'Kardashian's stick together' etc, so this could just be a testament to how close the sisters are.
If doughnuts have solved this whole Kardashian-Jenner baby thing, they are much more powerful than we give them credit. Eat with caution, people.
Now watch Chrissy Teigen offer to be Kim Kardashian's surrogate (just to confuse you further):
