The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and boyfriend Tristan Thompson starred in the black-and-white snap she posted Dec. 20 — and notably, only their hands were visible as they cradled the mom-to-be’s bare baby bump.
“One day when [Tristan] came home from practice, we decided to just do it!” Kardashian, 33, writes on her website and app, adding of her friends, “Simon took the photo and Savas was on the phone with Hrush and they were directing the placement of our hands.”
“Our heads are cropped out because we both looked crazy, LOL,” she adds. “Everyone thought this was some strategic picture, but in fact, I think we got it done in 20 seconds — and it was just done by us.”
Kardashian’s latest revelation puts to rest any speculation into whether the birth announcement photo was sponsored. As BuzzFeed notes, many wondered whether her photo, which put her Calvin Klein sports bra on display, was sponsored by the fashion brand. What helped spark this theory was the fact that, only days before Kardashian’s announcement, WWD reported that the Kardashian family might be involved in a Calvin Klein ad sometime in the future (aka the fam’s campaign that was revealed in January 2018).
Yet, Kardashian never mentioned any kind of sponsorship (or even put “#ad” anywhere in the caption or comments) and neither did the brand. And now that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has stated that the shoot was a spur of the moment thing, it’s time to put that sponsor speculation to rest.
