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.”
My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life! ❤️❤️❤️
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.
