Was Khloe Kardashian’s Pregnancy Announcement Also an Engagement Announcement?

Khloe Kardashian just confirmed all the rumors with her pregnancy announcement on Instagram on Wednesday, causing the Internet to go wild with excitement for the reality star and her boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

Though the news is nothing short of amazing, there’s one little detail in the photo she posted that’s raising a ton of questions: Is Khloe engaged too? Fans ran with this theory too, taking to Twitter to ask if it’s true.

If you look at the photo and where the ring is placed, they could be onto something. Maybe it’s hint for everyone on her and Tristan’s relationship status.


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!

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say it’s an engagement ring. According to HelloGiggles, the rings are eternity bands. Jeweler, George Khalife explained the rings to Hello Giggles. “They look to be Asscher cut eternity bands,” he said. “One looks larger than the other, the smaller one seems to be about 8 to 10 carats retailing around $100K and up. The largest band looks around 12 to 15 carats retailing as much as $200K. Larger diamond bands like these can get pricey because you must perfectly match the diamonds. Inclusions can be very noticeable in cuts such Asscher and emerald so easy to spot imperfections.” Well, those rings sound pretty dang important. 

Khloe and Tristan have not announced their engagement, but maybe this is their way of showing what’s to come. They’re starting a family together, so maybe getting married is the next step. I can only take so many adorable posts at a time, so maybe it’s good Khloe holds off and leaves us with another mystery.
