Ladies and gentlemen, gird your loins—Kim Kardashian is having another child.
At the tail end of Sunday night's Keeping Up With the Kardashians mid-season finale, which just so happened to be about Kim's ongoing struggle to get pregnant again, Kim revealed to her sister Khloe that she in fact, got pregnant again. And just like that, KUWTK stole the thunder from what might have been the greatest action sequence in TV history, courtesy of Game of Thrones. It's like Cersei said: In the game of Sunday night television, you either withhold enormous personal news like currency until the perfectly opportune moment, or you die.
Yesterday's release of the Vanity Fair announcing Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, to the world has made news of Kim's second pregnancy feel like it was announced two weeks ago, but trust us, this is a Kardashian news cycle—soon enough Baby #2 will be back in the forefront of your mind. Because as we learned in the nine months pre-North West (ah, when life was simple), the media and everyone with a Twitter account will dissect Kim's pregnancy in any and every way imaginable, and likewise, the Kardashian News Machine™ will exploit it to make sure you NEVER forget about them.
It's going to be a bumpy ride, but at least this time around I can clue you in to some things you should expect.
