As rumors swirl that Khloé Kardashian is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, fans appear to be convinced the reality star is taking measures to conceal her alleged baby bump. A new photo shared by her sister Kim Kardashian had commenters speculating that was precisely why the youngest of the Kardashian sisters was situated in the back.

Kim Kardashian, 37, posted the picture to Instagram on Monday. In the photo, both she and Kourtney Kardashian, 38, seemingly block their sister’s belly from view as she wears a long coat over an all-black ensemble.

 

Take San Fran...?

“Is Khloe floating in the air? Is she standing on one leg? What’s happening!? So now you’re hiding her belly and her legs!? Not cool!” wrote one user.

“[Khloé] is hiding her baby bump awww,” another commented.

Another user wrote: “Let us play ‘hide the baby!’”

While neither Khloé Kardashian, 33, nor Thompson, 26, has confirmed the pregnancy publicly, Scott Disick — the longtime on-and-off again boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian — answered questions about forking over baby advice to the reality star.

“Well, if she ever asks I’m sure I would try,” Disick told E! News earlier this month. “But I feel like all of us are so close that all of our children are kind of brought up in the same vicinity, or one block over, that everybody’s kind of there for each other.”

He added: “I don't really need to give advice per se because we are right there. It’s not like long-distance, ‘Hey, maybe you should try this?’ Everybody so hands-on that I feel like it will happen within time. So no real advice in that sense.”

Khloé Kardashian has previously stated that Thompson “wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that’s lovely.” She recently took to her website to discuss her relationship with the NBA star.

“I think with any relationship the key is to always have respect for one another. There are no winners in fighting. If you win, that means your partner loses, so that’s not really a win for you, is it? Be the one to change first. While it takes two to couple up, it takes only one to make things a whole lot better,” she said, according to People.

“No matter how old or new a relationship is, I believe in always praising your partner for the good that they bring and add to your life. It’s so easy to focus on the negative, but once you start criticizing one another, it’s really hard to get out of that rut.”

Three of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are reportedly expecting little ones in early 2018, according to reports. Kim Kardashian is reportedly expecting a baby by surrogate, while 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is rumored to be expecting a child with 25-year-old rapper Travis Scott.
