Why It's Likely There Will Be More Kardashian-Jenner Baby Announcements in 2019
Baby fever is real — and it's contagious!
While Kimye are are expecting baby no.4 via surrogate in the coming months, both Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have said they wanted more kids. And soon. A source even tells E! News that some of the Kardash-Jenner clan are thinking about getting pregnant again ASAP.
"Kim having another baby this year is heavily influencing her other sisters and their baby plans," the source said. "They all loved being pregnant at the same time and everyone wants all of the kids to be close in age. Everyone jokes about having another round of 'triplets' all the time."
Cousins Chicago West, Stormi Webster and True Thompson are all close in age, along with Rob Kardashian’s daughter Dream, whose mom is Blac Chyna. "I definitely feel like we are more connected now, especially that Khloe's back and we're hanging out with all the babies," Kim told E! "All the kids want to hang out. It's just a whole different experience now. It's so much fun."
Back in October Kylie told her fans on Snapchat, "Am I going to have another baby? I want another baby but, 'When?' is the question and I'm definitely not ready right this second. And I don't know when I will be, but when I do, I would love to share more of that with you guys."
Khloe wants True to have a sibling even though things are kinda not that great with Tristan Thompson.
Add in Kourtney Kardashian and her three kids, Mason, Penelope, and Reign (counting Kim’s new baby, due in May) Kris Jenner is up to 10 grandchildren! Man does she know how to keep a brand running.
But it’s not just about keeping the family name going — it won’t be unusual to see one or more of Kim’s sisters make another baby announcement this year. Psychologists confirm “baby fever” is actually real, reports Live Science.
“This visceral, emotional desire for a child is more common in young women than men, the research found, although as they age, men are increasingly at risk for what's also known in pop culture as ‘baby lust,’” LS reports. “To distinguish ‘baby fever’ from a more clear-headed desire to have kids, the researchers asked volunteers [in a study] if they ever feel ‘a bodily desire for the feel, sight and smell of an infant next to you.’ Women's average rating of how frequently they experience baby fever was 4.22 on a scale of 1 to 9, compared with 2.69 for men … The researchers had suspected that socialization might play a role, theorizing that women who more strongly believed in traditional gender roles might also desire one of those roles — motherhood — for themselves.”
Also, “pleasant experiences associated with babies, such as seeing a happy infant or adorable baby clothes,” increased baby fever, so the Kardashians and Jenners hanging out with their babies only feeds the desire for more babies.
