After teasing fans for most of December with outtakes from the family’s annual holiday card photo shoot, Kim Kardashian West revealed the *final* picture in her “25 Days of Christmas” series on Christmas day. Given all the build-up to the big moment, fans speculated that the last photo would be a special one, and that Kylie Jenner — who is rumored to be pregnant — would make her first appearance, since she wasn’t in any of the teaser shots. But what fans expected isn’t what they got.
In the past, the Kardashian-Jenners have rocked black-tie attire and dramatic poses for their annual Christmas photo, although their cutest card was probably 2015’s, which featured the first four grandkids, Mason, Penelope, North, and Reign. This year’s card was a bit of a departure for the family, as it showed them in a much more casual, candid setting.
The final photo — which Kardashian West captioned, “DAY 25 MERRY CHRISTMAS” — featured the KarJenner ladies, sans Kylie, and the kids, all in matching denim and white tops. No significant others, and no Rob Kardashian. Just four of the five sisters, momager Kris Jenner, her mother MJ, and the six little ones, against a stark white background with a bare Christmas tree.
Fans were not happy with the reveal, mostly because they expected something epic — like Kylie confirming her rumored pregnancy.
There were a lot of memes, natch.
Kylie has stayed pretty quiet on social media in recent weeks, but the 20-year-old makeup mogul did share her final magazine cover of the year on Instagram yesterday. Her cover shot for Love magazine was snapped by big sis Kendall, and her interview inside was done by mom Kris Jenner.
