Kylie Jenner will reportedly debut her baby bump on an upcoming episode of her family’s long-running reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Although many fans expected the 20-year-old cosmetics mogul to give her fans the first look at her baby bump during an episode of her own series, Life of Kylie, the first season of the reality show didn’t do well. So, rather than debut the bump on season two, Jenner’s mom, Kris, reportedly arranged for the debut to air on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“Kris had cameras rolling for Kylie’s pregnancy and she came up with a new plan to show off her youngest daughter’s baby news by exploiting it on next season of the show,” an insider told Radar Online on Nov. 29.
According to the report, Kris Jenner convinced the E! Network to give her and her family a whopping $150 million to continue sharing their life with viewers for the coming years and her daughter’s pregnancy reportedly played a big part in the figure. That said, Jenner is reportedly doing most of her filming for season 15 at her home as continues to hide her alleged pregnancy.
The Radar Online source went on to say that because Jenner’s mom felt that her spinoff did terrible in the ratings, she preferred to air news of her first child on Keeping Up With the Kardashians in an effort to gain more exposure.
“Kris lives and dies by the ratings of the show and she hopes that Kylie’s pregnancy will deliver big numbers,” the insider continued. “Life of Kylie did worse in the ratings than Rob & Blac and Kris wants to make sure Kylie’s pregnancy is shown in a good light.”
Jenner began dating her current boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott, earlier this year just weeks after going through a breakup with former boyfriend Tyga. A short time later, Jenner reportedly conceived her first child and since then, she has been doing her best to avoid the paparazzi and rarely shares images of anything but her face on her social media pages.
To see more of Kylie Jenner and her family, including sisters Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner, tune into new episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians season 14 on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on the E! Network.
