Kylie Jenner has had a real whirlwind romance with rap star Travis Scott since they were first linked in April at the Coachella music festival.
While her condition has been a talking point ever since, some fans now think the star could already have given birth after she has become uncharacteristically social media shy and kept herself out of the limelight in recent weeks.
Here are all the clues that the star could already have given birth plus some other facts about her pregnancy.
Missing from the Khristmas Kard
It is an annual tradition almost as cherished and eternal as celebrating the birth of Christ himself.
Every year the Kardashians unveil a brilliantly produced Christmas Card – however the 2017 edition shows Kylie conspicuously absent.
Some fans have noticed that almost half of the Kardashain clan appear distracted in the latest image – leading some to speculate that Kylie was stood to the side of the image, holding her newborn child…
Social media silence
Anyone who follows Kylie on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and/or her own app will know she loves to unleash selfie after seflie.
She normally floods her feed with mirror selfies showing her in fully outfits – often with abs and underboobs on display.
But in recent weeks, the star has barely appeared on her feeds – and images that she has released have been cropped to show just her face.
This has been all the ‘evidence’ some fans have required to confirm Kylie is pregnant after she has, herself, refused to officially comment on rumours of her condition.
Weeks old photos of her looking heavily pregnant
While Kylie might be able to censor her own images, she can’t hide completely from the paparazzi.
Even though pap shots have been rare, the youngest Kardashian memeber has been spotted out and about.
Images in September showed the star frolicking on a beach with Willow Smith – with a large bump under her baggy clothes.
While other shots have seen the star out and about with a suspiciously large belly – but with the images quite old now, some fans think she will have passed her due date already.
Fans are viciously debating the ‘baby’s’ gender
Whether Kylie’s first baby has been welcomed into the world or not remains to be seen, however fans that are convinced she already has given birth are struggling to agree if she has welcomed a son or a daughter.
On Twitter, some are convinced she has welcomed a girl, as one fan tweets: “OK I’m calling it now @KylieJenner has already had her baby and it’s a girl.”
While others think it is a boy, with one tweeting confidently: “Kylie jenner has probably given birth to a baby boy who’s again probably making more money than you’ll ever have in your life.”
Here is a look back at the ‘pregnancy’ of Kylie Jenner…
Flashing the flesh when the news first broke
In the days after the first claims of her pregnancy, Kylie flooded her Instagram page with images of her bare stomach, as if to prove there was nothing going on there.
But fans noticed some of the snaps were promotional or modelling pictures that may have been taken months ago, including one of her wearing a skintight white leotard with a thick obi-style belt cinching in her middle.
One she posted on September 24 showed her hanging out with best friend Jordyn Woods (and a giraffe, natch) and wearing comfy tracksuit bottoms and a baggy black sweater – which she’d pushed up with one hand to expose a few inches of bare flesh.
The picture did exactly what Kylie’d expected it to: answered precisely no questions and got all her followers wondering whether the bare stomach was a straight-up denial… or something else.
Strategically posed selfies
A week after the news broke, Kylie’s Instagram soon showed a bit of a pattern.
Rather than the usual crop tops and underwear shots Kylie tends to post, her timeline was filled with photos of her only taken from the waist up.
As yet, Kylie hasn’t shared a single picture of her stomach – or a figure-hugging outfit – since September 25 – and even that was a throwback.
Over on her Snapchat, it’s been the same pattern: no photos or video filmed from the waist down since August 28.
What’s going on?
The extremely suspicious cover-ups
Again, Kylie’s not usually known for covering her body – the outfits she wears tend to draw attention to her tiny waist and curves.
But she got everyone’s attention on October 9 when she shared a picture of herself wearing an oversized men’s shirt that revealed nothing except her hands and neck.
The baggy style immediately got her followers chatting excitedly about why Kylie hadn’t showed off her figure – and she only caused a greater furore when she shared a snap on October 11 of her wearing a huge black puffa jacket… in the Los Angeles sunshine.
On October 14, the 20-year-old was lounging by her pool at her Calabasas mansion when she shared a number of clips on Snapchat, including one that featured a song by Cigarettes After Sex called Nothing’s Going To Hurt You Baby.
Teasing her followers, the reality beauty also captioned the snap of herself looking seductively at camera with the title of the song.
In the other shots, the star made sure she kept her stomach hidden – choosing only to show her bare legs and face.
In mid October, Kylie gave her first flash of stomach since the pregnancy claims started swirling – then immediately deleted the footage from Snapchat.
Luckily, one eagle-eyed fan grabbed it before it disappeared forever and showed Kylie’s ‘bump’ off to the world.
She wore a grey cropped sports top as she danced to the background music and panned the camera over her sizable chest, which many of her fans excitedly claimed to be pregnancy cleavage.
The star went virtually makeup-free in the footage, which some believe is Kylie’s way of telling the world she’s about to become a mum.
What actual evidence is there that Kylie is pregnant?
In the absence of a definitive statement from the horse’s mouth, fans have been turning to Kylie’s family and friends to shed light on the puzzle.
The most conclusive piece of evidence was from Kylie’s own dad Caitlyn Jenner, whose rep said the family had been told in advance.
“All I can tell you is that it was some time ago,” they added.
In addition, Kylie’s mum Kris Jenner texted Ryan Seacrest – the Kardashians’ executive producer of their E! reality show – simply stating: “Kylie’s not confirming anything.”
For a family so engaged with their own public image, it certainly wasn’t an outright ‘no’.
