Kourtney Kardashian announces pregnancy after 9 weeks because she’s “confident.” Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuure.

We all know celebrities love to make big announcements about their pregnancies. But they always wait. Why? They love the speculation. They love the magazine covers. They love the rumors. (WHEN THEY”RE ACTUALLY PREGNANT. When you’re not pregnant and people think you’re pregnant…. yeah. Awkward).

Announcing it after the first trimester is always the rule. It’s very common to miscarry in your first trimester. No one wants to have to endure that at ALL, left alone through the media as well. Kourtney waited LAST time she got pregnant to announce it, so why’d she jump the gun this time? She told US Weekly:

“Now I’m nine weeks along,” Kardashian says. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.”

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight. This has nothing to do with the fact that your family is going through a PR crisis because of Kim’s divorce? It’s kind of sad to use a pregnancy as a distraction. Or for Kris Jenner to ask Kourtney to announce it early, no? I mean, I think Kris would’ve asked Kourtney to do that for “the family” or to help make the story go away. I don’t think she’d volunteer to do it. She’s always worrying about stuff. I think she’d also worry about miscarriage, who knows though.

What do you think? Do you think she was just so excited she had to tell people? Or do you think it’s strategic timing to distract everyone from their PR disaster?

    When I read that she was pregnant I thought the same thing: PR spin. Take the focus off of Kim with some happy Kardashian news. Hopefully the average person will see through the latest PR stunt. I love Khloe, and can tolerate Kourtney, but I kinda hope they all fade away. They define overexposure. Love your blog so far!
