Kim Kardashian explained why she hasn’t addressed the Kylie and Khloé pregnancy rumors

It’s a hectic time for the Kardashian family — and for their incredible fanbase, as well. During an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kim Kardashian addressed Kylie and Khloé’s pregnancy rumors by telling her fans how things go down in her family.

Love them or hate them, you have to have a little bit of respect for the Kardashians. They’ve been videotaping their lives for our entertainment for a decade (yes, it’s been 10 years since Keeping Up With The Kardashians first hit E!) and have documented both the good and the bad. That may be why we expected to hear these alleged pregnancies confirmed sooner, as they rarely keep quiet about big life changes.

Kim herself is expecting a baby, but this time through a surrogate. So while she’s opened up about her third, a girl, she’s not piping in to share any news about Kylie or Khloé, whose rumors hit the internet back-to-back. The father of Kylie’s alleged baby is Travis Scott, while Khloé is reported to be expecting with Tristan Thompson.

This isn’t the first time that DeGeneres has tried to get the famous family to spill details — just a few days ago, she asked the same question to Kris Jenner, who dodged the inquiry like a pro. But it was Kim who explained why.

"Okay, I'm gonna break it down," Kim said. "This is how it works in the family. When there are lots of rumors, we have these family group chats and we threaten each other's lives if we speak for the other one. So, for the safety of my life [I'm not going to comment]."

If you have siblings yourself, you may understand this sort of dynamic.

"We just decided that so much goes on, and that we respect each other's right to speak for themselves," she continued. "So, I will speak about myself, and hopefully they can come on [the show] and address whatever rumors they might have."

It’s also important to remember that both Khloé and Kylie don’t owe us any information — even though we’ve seen their lives unfold on television, it doesn’t mean that we have a right to know what’s happening in their bodies.

To reinforce: whether or not the two decide to confirm is up to them. In the meantime, we’ll be marathoning their show as per usual.
