Kim Kardashian "didn't respond well" to Kylie Jenner's pregnancy news
Everyone was taken by surprise when it was reported that Kylie Jenner was pregnant this week, with many even jumping into conspiracy theories to make sense of it all. Most of this comes from the fact that Kylie is only 20 years old, and the father of the child, rapper Travis Scott, has only been in a relationship with her for a few months by this point.
It all seems a bit fast, doesn't it?
Apparently, this was exactly what both her half-sister Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West thought at the time, as they were reportedly "stunned by the news". PEOPLE managed to score some quotes from a source close to the family, and according to them, Kim did not respond well at all when she first heard the news. In fact, her first reaction was "Seriously?"
It's worth pointing out first, for those that don't know, that Kim and Kanye are reportedly expecting their third child (via surrogate) in January. "She didn't respond well at first," the source explained, "It's like she and Kanye had gone on this whole journey to get pregnant for months, and now this happens to Kylie."
This is understandable, if you've got plans set in your head and someone throws in something completely unexpected like this. Though it's not exactly the reaction you want when you're bringing a baby into the world. The source continued:
"She teared up. It definitely took a lot of time for her to process it."
"It came out of nowhere. It was the last thing on their radar. Kylie is just 20 and hasn't been with Scott for very long. So no one saw this coming."
"Of course Kim is happy for Kylie. She's going to support Kylie 100 percent, no matter what. There's never been any question about that. But it's just a weird dynamic, after all that Kim did to intentionally have another child. It has taken a lot of time, energy and money for her to get pregnant, and now Kylie is having a baby around the same time"
The family is looking forward to a new addition to the family, but they are a little protective over Kylie considering the new addition of Travis to the fold. "They don’t know him too well,” the source said. "They just want to make sure that this isn’t a Blac Chyna situation. Kylie is so young and everybody is afraid that she could get really hurt."
"This is ultimately really great news, because it's a new life. The babies will be the same age, and will probably be very close. Family is everything for the Kardashians, so they're going to focus on these new kids in the family. Everyone is genuinely happy."
According to TMZ, the gender of Kylie's baby is female, and it has been reported that the baby will be due in February, only one month after Kim's is said to be due. Maybe they will grow up like sisters, and hopefully not mortal enemies...
