Fans Were Convinced That Kylie Jenner Went Into Labor Last Night

Being a weekend editor becomes infinitely more stressful when there’s a Kardashian baby-rumor, and my job becomes reduced to refreshing Twitter with increasing levels of agitation for any signs of life (literally).

Yesterday afternoon, a rumor sparked on Twitter that Kylie Jenner was in labor, leaving fans breathlessly waiting for confirmation from the woman who never confirmed her pregnancy in the first place. (Though, for those who have not been following the saga with bated breath, the youngest Jenner has fanned pregnancy rumors by being conspicuously absent from Kardashian-Jenner Christmas cards, public events, and social media since the rumor was leaked in September).

TMZ reported that Jenner was not actually in labor soon after the rumors broke — promising that she isn’t even due this month — but it did little to stop fan speculation.

There's a rumor that Kylie is in labor… Stay tuned! Doing more research.

Kylie Jenner WOULD go into labor at 4:00 p.m. EST on a Friday.

Me: “Kylie Jenner is so annoying! I could care less about her or her baby.”

Twitter: “Kylie is in labor ya’ll!”

Kylie Jenner is allegedly in labor right now, and if Kris Jenner orchestrated it so that this would happen the SAME weekend that Keeping Up With The Kardashians is airing the 2-part baby announcement episode, well, then I truly have nothing but respect for MY President.

There is no viable source that has confirmed Kylie was in labor or gave birth this weekend, so all of the Twitter hubbub is just that.

Fans grappling with yet another false alarm:
