Kylie Jenner surpassed Kim Kardashian, reaching 300 million Instagram followers, becoming the first woman to do so, while fans are convinced she has already given birth to her second child.
The 24-year-old announced that she was expecting a baby from Travis Scott back in August, although she never disclosed the due date.
While Kylie’s fans have followed her social media closely for any news about children, the beauty mogul has amassed a slew of additional Instagram followers, reaching an impressive 300 million.
Her older sister Kim, known as the queen of Instagram, now falls short of 279 million followers on her page.
This is the second time that Kylie has surpassed Kim in subscribers: the reality TV star reached 200 million subscribers back in November 2020, while Kim lagged behind with 191 million.
The milestone comes after Kylie took months off work following the horrific tragedy that happened at the Astroworld festival during a performance by her boyfriend Travis, 30.
The mother-of-two faced strong public backlash over how she and her boyfriend handled the fatal incident, with many blaming them for not taking the matter seriously.
Since then, Kylie has only occasionally dropped in on Instagram to share commercials for her makeup line and limited holiday shots.
Last week, she surprised fans to see her growing belly when she shared photos from a photo shoot of her naked tummy in a crop top and unzipped jeans.
Despite the snapshot showing her very pregnant belly, fans continue to speculate that the star secretly gave birth.
The latest clue came from her assistant Maguire Amundsen, who raised rumors when she returned to Los Angeles from Dallas, prompting subscribers to wonder if she returned to help Kylie with the baby.
Maguire shared a photo of her queuing at Starbucks at the airport.
And a few hours later, she shared a photo of the morning sky at 7 am, captioning it “Morning” with a white heart emoji.
Sharp-eyed users realized that since Maguire posted this “10 Hours ago,” she was probably on the West Coast.
They flooded Reddit with their theory in a thread titled “Kylie REALLY had a baby!”
One fan wrote, “Her assistant posted this 10 hours ago with a 7am time stamp, and if she was in Dallas it would have been 9am! She’s on the west coast and with Kylie! “
Another added, “Yes, now that Kylie has a baby, a head mate will be needed to handle all of Kylie’s logistics and help her with her new daily routine!”
Traveling Assistant posts aren’t the first time fans have wondered if the KUWTK star has already given birth, as they’ve followed any “clues” to support their theories.
Late last month, many thought they had spotted a massive giveaway when they spotted the baby bottle on Travis Barker’s Instagram story.
Rocker Blink-182, who is engaged to Kourtney Kardashian, shared a photo of him watching The Grinch Stole Christmas.
The photo turned out to be a half-filled baby bottle, but he could not explain who it belonged to.
A few days later, fans thought they saw another important clue after the manicurist revealed that Kylie had done a short French manicure.
The reality TV star is known for her long, showy nails.
Lisa Cohn shared a photo of Kylie’s nails on Instagram, writing, “Kylie Jenner chose a classic French manicure to celebrate the New Year.”
Fans rushed to the comments section to share their speculation, one of which wrote, “It’s definitely ‘I’ll have newborn nails soon.’
Another intervened: “Yes! Assuming it helps change diapers and stuff, long acrylic paints are like a bad scratch waiting to appear. “
Others wondered if Kylie had given birth already when her 3-year-old daughter Stormi was seen wearing a mask while celebrating Christmas with the Kardashians.
While Kylie and Travis have not announced the expected appearance of younger brother Stormi, a source previously told Kristen Bell Tattoos that she should be born in early 2022.
