The Duggars Are Soon to Announce Another Pregnancy. Here’s How We Know …

There was a time when the Duggar pregnancy announcements happened so frequently that it was hard to keep up.

These days, however, the deluge of Duggar offspring has slowed to a trickle.

At the moment, multiple Duggar women are rumored to be pregnant, but no official announcements have been made.

What gives? Well, fans have a theory as to what might be holding up the parade, as well as a few predictions about who will be sharing their big news next.

Take a look:

Thomas Markle: Filled with Love, Actual Joy Over Daughter’s Pregnancy

Thomas Markle has spoken out for the first time since learning his daughter is pregnant.

As previously reported, someone close to Meghan’s controversial and sort of crappy father claimed a few days ago that Thomas was “absolutely delighted” over the blessed Royal News.

But now we’ve heard it directly from the polarizing man himself.

“I was sitting in line waiting to cross the border [between the U.S. and Mexico, where he lives] when I heard the baby announcement on the car radio,” Thomas explained to the Daily Mail on Sunday.

And how did he feel?

What emotions ran through his body upon discovering that he would be a grandfather?

“The first thing I thought about was holding Meghan in my arms as a newborn 37 years ago,” he said emotionally and profoundly, expounding as follows:

“I thought, ‘My baby is having a baby.’ It was a very proud moment.

“I was filled with love, joy and happiness for both my beautiful daughter and my son-in-law. A new baby is a blessing and I look forward to seeing a little Meghan or a little Harry.”

Thomas, of course, has lamented many times in the past about how his relationship with Meghan is non-existent at this point.

He has complained to the press about a lack of access to his daughter and even talked in detail about how unfair it will be for Meghan to keep him from his grandchild, presuming this is what will happen down the line.

The Duchess, for her part, has never said such a thing.

Or much of anything at all when it comes to her dad.

Thomas has lived a quiet and reclusive life in Mexico for years.

He was invited to the Royal Wedding in May, but bowed out at the last minute due to health problems and due to his embarrassment over paying members of the paparazzi to snap pictures of him.

The relationship between father and child has been VERY strained ever since.

According to an Us Weekly source, Meghan did not tell Thomas about the pregnancy ahead of the public announcement last Monday.

“He found out the same time as the rest of the world,” this insider says.

Kensington Palace alerted everyone to the pregnancy via an announcement that reads:

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.

Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.

On a tour of Australia in the days after this announcement, Harry and Meghan both made references to the forthcoming baby.

We don’t yet know if it will be a boy or a girl.

But we’ve heard he or she is due to be born in early May.

“I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me,” Thomas tells The Mail, adding of how he did or did not find out:

“Me not getting a call is most likely a misunderstanding about my two back-to-back heart attacks and me missing the wedding. There has been so much misinformation and lies that perhaps made them mistrust me.”

In conclusion, he had only kind things to say about Meghan and her journey to come:

“I wasn’t surprised by the baby announcement. Meghan loves children and she and Harry have been talking about wanting a family from the start. I’m delighted for them both.

“She’s always been wonderful with children and most of her friends have families so she’s used to being around kids.

“She will make a fantastic mother.”


Keeping Up with the Kardashians Rekap: Pregnancy is SO Easy!

Breaking news:

Kylie Jenner has given birth!

We repeat: Kylie Jenner has given birth!

What? You knew this already?

It happened way back in February, causing Sunday night’s brand new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to feel very dated and anti-climactic?


Nevertheless, the latest installment of this bizarrely popular E! reality series focused almost entirely on Kylie’s pregnancy and labor.

Early on, Kim joked with Kylie that her expecting state has been the best-kept secret of our generation,” despite literally every website on the Internet writing about it for weeks at the time.

“Your friends deserve awards,” Kim told her sibling, adding that she was never able to keep her pregnancies quiet and saying of Jenner’s close friends.

“Seriously, because now you know you have some real ones.”

Later, while working out with her personal trainer, Kim was stunned when Kourtney Kardashian walked in and delivered the news that Kylie was in labor. 

Kim noted that Kylie had asked Khloe to be in the delivery room, at Kim’s behest, while the family later gabbed once again about the secrecy of this birth (Kim: “Can you believe Kylie got out of the hospital with not one report? Now Caitlyn can never say we have big mouths and we leak everything.”) — along how amazing and how easy it all was.

“It was such a positive experience. …  She would go, ‘I’m not feeling any pain,’” Kris Jenner explained of her youngest child. “She was so calm.”

Oh, Kris also said she pulled Stormi out of Kylie’s vagina.

“Ewww,” Kim replied upon hearing this news.

“Kylie’s always wanted to be a mom so this is really exciting for her,” Kim told the camera, saying of why the young star didn’t make any official statement until after she gave birth:

“She just didn’t want anyone changing her happy moment and her happy pregnancy, so I’m really proud of her that she stuck to her guns and was able to tell her story her way.”

We believe her.

It definitely didn’t have anything to do with Kylie’s shock and shame over getting impregnated at age 20 by a guy she had only been dating a few months.

“I can already tell that Kylie is gonna be the most amazing mom and is so in love with her baby,” Kris added, as the relatives laid it on as thick as humanly possible.

Eventually, Kylie showed up for dinner, Stormi wrapped up tightly at her bosom while making her television debut.

“Now that it’s all said and done, what is your real take on pregnancy?” Kim asked her sister.

“I liked it. I miss it,” Kylie said ridiculously with a shrug. “I had like, the easiest pregnancy.”

What did she miss about it? What did she like about it?

“You never feel alone and like I was really sad to not be pregnant anymore,” Kylie expounded.

With Chicago Westin the picture on the show, all that remains is for Khloe to give birth and complete the trifecta.

“Khloe, I’m just so excited for you,” Kylie said. “I can’t wait.”

“Chicago was like the new girl in town for like a day,” Kim quipped.

“Stormi’s got three months, maybe as the new girl,” Kourtney said.

NOTE: We made some fun of Kylie and company here because the news is just so old and the glee with which she talked about labor was a tad bit nauseating and absurd.

But we really are happy for Jenner.

SECOND NOTE: The episode also included a memorial to the late family dog Gabbana.

And we’ll never make fun of anyone for mourning the loss of a pet.

Khloe, who had taken Gabbana into her home after Kris and Caitlyn’s divorce, eulogized the canine in a testimonial, saying:

“It’s so crazy to me that a dog can touch your life the way Gabbana’s touched my life. … I could always hear her in my home and now I hear silence.”

May she rest in peace.


Kim and Khloe Kardashian Play the “Kylie Pregnancy Game”

Kim Kardashian apparently does not read The Hollywood Gossip.

It provides us with some solace, however, to at least realize that she doesn't read the Internet at all.

That's our main takeaway from this sneak peek at this Sunday's Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode, as Kim confides with Khloe early on about the major secret everyone in the family has been tasked with… well… keeping.

This secret is that Kylie Jenner is pregnant with Travis Scott's baby.

“The funnest game ever is the Kylie pregnancy game, just to see what people think,” says Kim to her sister. “Like, there were pictures of her out on TMZ and she looked so skinny.”

“I know, ’cause it’s the angle,” replied Khloe. “They got her from face-on. But if they got a side shot, it would have been over for her.”

Yes, game over.

The implication here is that no one outside of Kylie's very close circle is aware that she's expecting…

… even though pretty much EVERYone was aware that Kylie was expecting.

We helped break this news back in September, and we're pretty sure these Season 15 episodes were filmed in November or December.

(Remember the fight Kim and Khloe got into with Kourtney about her not showing up for the Christmas card shoot?)

Still, the family evidently believes that anyone outside of, like, Calabasas is clueless simply because Kylie herself had not confirmed her pregnancy at the time of filming.

Later in this clip, Kim tells Jenner that her expecting state “has been the best-kept secret of our generation," which is just an amazing quote.

“I’m not trying to keep it secret,” Jenner says. “I’m really doing this for myself.”

(Editor's Note: You were, by definition, keeping it a secret. The basis for said secret-keeping wasn't really the question here.)

“Your friends deserve awards. Like, seriously,” Kim responds. “Now you know you have some real ones. That wouldn’t have happened in my day.”

Jenner never actually addresses her situation until AFTER she gave birth, finally saying once Stormi Webster entered the world:

I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions.

I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world.

I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how.

There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned.

I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.

Leah Messer Addresses All Those Pregnancy Rumors

Leah Messer is pregnant, people!

The Teen Mom 2 star shared the following photo on Instagram this week, which basically served as confirmation of this amazing news.

See it for yourself and then join the many social media users who have already sent Messer their very best wishes…

Wait, what’s that?

This picture is NOT evidence that Messer is expecting her fourth child?

Already the mother to Adalynn, Aliannah and Aleeah, Messer posted the above image on Instagram and wrote along with it as a caption:

Once you start to believe in yourself, magic starts happening! Self confidence is a super power! #aaa #love #liveyourstandard

For whatever reason, based simply on these words and the snapshot featured here, fans leaped to the conclusion that Messer was with child.

Just consider the following comments left in response to the picture:


Is that a a baby bump???? You’re sooo beautiful!!

I see a baby bump too.

Def Preggo I’m sure she will spill the beans in a couple months. Hopefully this baby daddy will stay this time.

Yes, these very self-assured statements were made simply because some people looked at the lead image in this article.

So… is it true? Is Leah Messer really pregnant again?

In a word? No.

In a few more words, written on Instagram by Messer herself?

“You guys are sweet and NOOOOO I’m not pregnant. What the,” she responded to this speculation, including three face palm emojis with her reply.

With rumors circulating about the wombs of both Leah and Maci Bookout, the latter re-Tweeted a funny comment made by a Teen Mom fan on Twitter, who sarcastically congratulated both women on their babies-to-be:

maci and leah

We also love that.

Messer, meanwhile, is in love with a new man, which may be another reason why folks think she’s expecting.

She now has someone with whom she may want to raise another child and his name is Jason Jordan.

He’s a little bit older, but the relationship is now serious enough for Leah and Jason to have made it Instagram official.

These two do look pretty cute together here, don’t they?

Still, wedding bells are not about to ring for the MTV personality.

No baby showers are planned.

With three kids at home already and a relatively new man in her life, we’re pretty sure Messer has enough going on in her life without adding another tiny human being to her brood.

Does this mean she’ll never be pregnant again? No, we’re not saying that.

We’re just saying she isn’t pregnant right now.


Kylie Jenner: Birthday Complicated by Engagement, Second Pregnancy?!

Kylie Jenner turned 21 on Friday, August 10.

She celebrated with her family until a few hours into the morning. Good for her.

She's a mom and a makeup mogul. It's great that she also has time to party.

But she might be a lot busier, and soon. Because it's reported that Kylie is pregnant and engaged to Travis Scott.

That would be a lot harder to believe without confirmation if she hadn't waited until after Stormi was born to tell the world that she was expecting.

A second baby and an engagement are both great news, but did these complicate her celebrations over turning 21?

Take a look!

1. Kylie Jenner is 21!!
