Just weeks after Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement, a tabloid is now reporting fellow “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star, Kim Kardashian, is also expecting.
A report in the July 28 issue of Life & Style magazine says Kardashian, 33, is pregnant with her and husband Kanye West’s second child.
“The amount she has been eating recently has people sure she’s pregnant again,” an unidentified family friend told the magazine. “She’s usually careful about what she eats. … Kim has gained weight and she knows it.”
While insiders are already buzzing the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” figure is with child, those close to the E! reality star claim she isn’t happy about her summer pregnancy.

“She wanted to get pregnant in the winter when she could hibernate,” a source said.
So why the desire to wait? Despite Kardashian revealing to the Mail Online (via Us Weekly) last month she wants to add “one more” baby to her brood, the tabloid’s sources are claiming the reality starlet has mixed emotions about her impending baby bump.
The magazine's report says Kardashian is not thrilled about the idea of gaining weight after only recently dropping her postpartum pounds or dealing with the potential onslaught of insensitive comments about her size similar to those she faced during her pregnancy with daughter North, now 13 months.
“She’s not eager to subject herself to all the negativity she received last pregnancy,” an insider said.
While Kardashian is rumored to be upset about the timing of her second pregnancy, her husband, rapper Kanye West, 37, is reportedly thrilled to be anticipating another child.
“If it was up to him, Kim would have had a baby right after Nori,” an insider said. “He has been all about Kim getting pregnant.”
West stepbrother Hal “Gore” Carmichael, the “Stronger“ performer, said West is hoping for a son.
“He wants a little Kanye Jr.,” Carmichael dished to the magazine. “And he won’t stop until he has one. He’s gotta keep his name going!”
Life & Style’s report marks the second time Kardashian has been rumored to be pregnant since giving birth to daughter North in June 2013. Fans of the reality star first speculated she was expecting baby No. 2 after she was photographed with West holding her stomach while leaving a Beverly Hills medical facility in January.
After two years of dating, Kardashian and West tied the knot in Florence, Italy, May 24. The couple’s daughter was present for the nuptials alongside Kardashian’s “KUWTK” co-stars. The lavish affair is estimated to have cost $30 million.
