Kylie Jenner's swimsuit Instagram picture has sparked pregnancy rumours

Kylie Jenner is comfortably one of the most recognisable people on the planet right now.

Being a member of the Kardashian/Jenner family at this point is something akin to a golden ticket to the big time; endless riches, product endorsements, ludicrously luxurious holidays and more cars than you can drive in a working week. It's a good time to be alive if your name happens to begin with the letter 'K'.

Having said that, the last month has been far from easy for the family, after it emerged that Kylie Jenner's BFF, Jordan Woods, had gotten cosy with Khloé Kardashian's baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, at a party.

At once, the internet went into total frenzy, wild rumours started flying around, and before you could say 'lip kit' everyone was clamouring for a response from both Kylie and Khloé.

Except, Kylie went uncharacteristically quiet over the next few days, a veritable radio silence on social media ensued and we were all left scratching our heads, wondering what would happen next.

But that was then, and this is now. Normal service has been resumed on the effervescent corridors of Kylie Jenner's Instagram page, and her fans are lapping it up.

Here's Kylie having an adorable "conversation" with her daughter Stormi:

It's been all stunning selfies and snaps of the 21-year-old makeup mogul with her adorable daughter Stormi.

And talking of Stormi, a certain Instagram upload of Kylie with her baby has got tongues wagging, because some people seem to think it's a sign that she could be pregnant again!

Except, the reasoning behind the rumours is a little bit strange.

Admittedly, Kylie has previously said "it wasn't a case of if but when" when quizzed about whether or not she'd have another child, however she's previously insisted that she's "definitely not ready" to do so right now.

That hasn't stopped commenters on this particular speculating though:

@ceeceeluhv commented "maybe you're pregó, babies can sense those things, they get real attached girl [sic]", while @oldentribe23 added, "So cute! Maybe she feels a sibling coming along. Jus saying".

And the "you're probably pregnant" comments just kept flooding in, so why has an adorable snap of a mother and daughter lead to fan speculation that Kylie is once again with child?

It's all down to an old wives' tale, suggesting that young children have a sixth sense to detect pregnancy, which in turn leans to clingier behaviour as they compete with their soon-to-be sibling for affection.

It should be noted that there is no medical proof of this tale, as per the Metro.

Nevertheless, since Kylie's first pregnancy was shrouded in secrecy before a bombshell announcement at the eleventh hour, fans are bound to be on high alert for any sign of baby #2.
