Kourtney Kardashian is once again forced to respond to pregnancy rumors
Kourtney Kardashian is ONCE AGAIN forced to respond to pregnancy rumors. After the reality star posted a picture of herself promoting her new vitamin gummy line, Lemme, the comments, questions and concerns asking if she’s pregnant started rolling in.
The photo features Kourtney in head-to-toe yellow spandex. The account, @commentsbycelebs, which posts screenshots of celebrity comments on different posts, posted a shot of the original photo along with the offensive comment and Kourtney’s response.
The comment said, “Is she pregnant.” Kourtney, who has been asked this question many, many times in the past responded in the best way.
“the after effects of IVF,” she wrote, “(I only acknowledge this comment bc I do think it’s important to know how IVF affects women’s bodies and it’s not spoken about much)…also are we still asking women if they’re pregnant?”

To be fair, regardless of what you may think about her or her family members or, even if you have opinions on how they’ve contributed to society’s unfair beauty standards for women, this is not OK. Women should not have to field questions about whether they are or are not pregnant. Period.
This is not a question as simple as, “Would you like some ice cream?” or, “Would you like to go on a free vacation?” (in what universe this last question is asked, I don’t know, but I live for this day). Asking women about their bodies shouldn’t even exist within what we consider proper questions to ask people. Because, at the end of the day, whether someone else is pregnant or not, whether they’ve gained weight or lost weight, none of these scenarios changes anything about anyone else’s life except for that person.
Props to Kourtney Kardashian for acknowledging the comment and taking the time to respond. She’s been transparent about her IVF, in-vitro fertilization (IVF), journey before. In early 2022, the mother of three confirmed that she and her new husband, Travis Barker, were trying to conceive. Because IVF can have a wide range of affects on the body, she even got candid on an episode of “The Kardashians,” about how she’s loving her new thicker body.
Kourtney shares 12-year-old Mason, 10-year-old Penelope and 7-year-old Reign with her ex, Scott Disick.

Just last fall Kourtney talked about pregnancy rumors in an episode on their reality show. “Every single person on social media is always like, ‘Kourtney’s pregnant! Kourtney has gained so much weight!’” she told her mom, Kris. “I’m like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through.”
