There are still a lot of questions around the reports that Kylie Jenner is pregnant. As fans wait patiently for the 20-year-old celeb to decide if, how, and when she wants to address the rumors, Ryan Seacrest is using his connection to the family to try to get some answers. Before Monday’s episode of Live! with Kelly and Ryan, Seacrest fired off a text to Keeping Up With the Kardashians momager Kris Jenner to ask about the sensitive situation.
In an Instagram video posted to the show’s account on Monday morning, Seacrest (who hosted last night’s pre-taped KUWTK anniversary special) is seen meeting up with co-host Kelly Ripa backstage, telling her, “Kris Jenner is typing. I’m trying to get an answer on what’s going on.”
Ripa ended up carrying Seacrest’s phone onstage, where they excitedly explained the situation to viewers. As Ripa bounced in her chair, she pointed at the screen in her hand and told the audience, “There’s bubbles! There’s bubbles!” (The “bubbles” in question are the three dots that appear when someone is typing a reply in iMessage.)
“The reason we were looking at the bubbles is because there was news over the weekend that Kylie Jenner is pregnant,” Seacrest began. “I’ve not spoken with the family over the weekend. … So, we were getting bubbles from Kris Jenner as we were walking out.”
Obviously, Seacrest and Ripa were hoping to get a little insider info from Kylie’s mom. And they did get a response while the cameras were rolling — but it wasn’t the big reveal they were likely hoping for.
Perhaps not surprisingly, Kris is keeping mum for now, pretty much repeating what she said when she first broke her silence on the situation over the weekend. “By the way, so, Kris says Kylie’s not confirming anything. So, that’s the news from the family this morning,” he told the audience, who responded with a disappointed “awww.”
“So, now we’re sitting here with that hanging over our heads,” Ripa quipped.
No one can say they didn’t try, though. For the moment, all we can do is wait for Kylie to decide if she wants to address the rumors.
