Before I show you the photo, let’s back up. How did I come across this photo? Easy—my coworker frantically sent me the tweet it’s attached to. Now, who tweeted it? It comes from Twitter user @salruffino, a self-proclaimed “film maker” from Bristol with a moderate Instagram following and a Tumblr account. So basically, every teen in the world. Sal tweeted out a paparazzi-style shot of what appears to be a very pregnany Kylie Jenner, and Twitter promptly went nuts.
Honestly God bless who ever papped this photo of pregnant Kylie Jenner bcus now it can end this ridiculousness. ALSO its kinda cute that she’s keeping this sacred and precious, shows she’s really taking it seriously. She doesn’t owe any of us any information about her baby. pic.twitter.com/LvQ3E43U1H

In the name of journalism, I’ve got to say: Sure, this looks like it *could* be Kylie Jenner, but it also could be literally anyone with straight black hair. We don’t know that this photo is really of Kylie, or that it hasn’t been altered. So, yeah, it may show a super pregnant Kylie, but until its authenticity is verified (which it probably never will be, since Kris Jenner is determined to drag this media circus out as long as possible), we really can’t say anything with any degree of certainty. Basically, take this picture as you will, and see it however you want to see it. Which is kind of a beautiful sentiment if you think about it.
One thing for sure, though: Whoever took this photo seriously needs to upgrade their phone.
