Most women wait until they’re three months along to tell friends they’re pregnant. But Kourtney Kardashian apparently couldn’t bear the delay. Today, at just nine weeks pregnant, she’s announced her baby news to the entire world! “I feel confident [about the pregnancy],” she reportedly said.
Of course, the Kardashians might have another motive for releasing the information early: All of them have suffered from the hits to the family’s reputation in the wake of Kim’s cash-grabbing wedding and her subsequent quickie divorce. (You know things are bad when even gentlemanly Daniel Craig, a.k.a. James Bond, is dissing you: In the January issue of GQ the actor refers to the clan as “f-ing idiots,” for living so publicly and then wishing to close ranks in the wake of bad news. As he said, “You can’t buy your privacy back… If you sell it off, it’s gone.”)
Although the timing indicates that Kourtney, 32, and boyfriend Scott Disick, 28, conceived before Kim split from Kris Humphries, one imagines that mother/manager/mastermind Kris Jenner was positively gleeful about the prospect of good news that will push Kim’s divorce out of the spotlight (and, oh yeah, another grandchild). So it’s no wonder that they couldn’t wait the traditional 12 weeks. Either way, we’re sure the baby will be a cutie, so congratulations to the happy couple!
