5 Social Media Clues Kylie Jenner Has Dropped About Reportedly Being Pregnant

It's been 10 years since Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired on TV. This week, we examine how the world's most famous family has entertained us, angered us, and made an indisputable impact on our culture.

For most of us, the news that Kylie Jenner is reportedly pregnant was a total bombshell. However, hindsight is 20/20, and now that we know (or at least, are pretty sure) the 20-year-old is expecting a baby in February, it's hard to believe we totally missed some of the obvious hints the reality star was dropping on social media and beyond.

Of course, it's no secret that she wanted kids. "It’s so fun being an aunt," she told Teen Vogue in 2015. "When I look to the far future and decide to have kids, I need to have a million girls. Ten years from now — in 2025 — I hope I have a kid."

Then, back in July, she once again professed her desire for a family on her spinoff reality series, Life Of Kylie.

"Who doesn’t want kids?" she asked. "My dogs feel like my little kids" She added in a later episode that "What I really want is to live on a farm and have chickens and raise a family."

Most of the talk has been hypothetical, but as far as her actual pregnancy goes, the Lip Kit mogul has expertly used social media to hide clues about her upcoming bundle of joy, sometimes in plain sight. Whether it's a sneakily-angled Instagram pic or a small detail in her reality show, the hints ahead prove that we totally should have seen this coming.

The moment the news dropped, we all immediately turned to Instagram to see if the star herself would confirm the news, but instead saw a pattern we can't believe we missed. So many of Kylie's recent photos are purposefully taken from the chest up, leaving her belly out of frame — and the curious eyes of fans who may have noticed a bump. TMZ also noted that the recent photos that do show her stomach are actually old photos that she's just getting around to posting now.
Perhaps the earliest clue was dropped during the season finale of Life Of Kylie, the events of which took place in May. Writer Mariah Smith noticed that May 2017 is exactly 9 months before February 2018, and is when a Shaman told the 20-year-old that her boyfriend (and alleged father of her child) was "inside" of her and "looking at her." She also suffered from altitude sickness — something pregnancy definitely wouldn't help.
In August, Marie Claire noticed that cosmetic queen dropped the Birthday Collection. One of the shade names? "Baby Girl."
Then there's this magazine cover. Is the word "baby" foreshadowing something?
Which brings us to her most recent Instagram — uploaded after the news broke. Standing with BFF Jordyn Woods, Kylie smiles and lifts up her shirt to show a peek of her belly which, considering the whole world is talking about the news, is too blatant to ignore.
