Quick! When is Kim Kardashian's baby due date? Do you know? Well, I don't know, either. That is because I have a life. But I do know she's pretty darn pregnant. Anyway, for people who are actually paying attention, you are officially on notice: Rumor has it Kim K may be lying about her due date.
The rumor goes something like this: Kim has gained SO MUCH WEIGHT (eye roll) that she wants to buy herself some time to lose that weight before presenting her baby and her post-pregnancy self to the world. And you know what? This is where we all need to stop and realize that the celeb pregnancy weight train has officially gone off the rails.
I guess the official word is that Kim is due in mid-July. But Page Six is saying it's actually more like mid-June. I don't know -- this plan of pretending the baby is born a full month later than it actually is sounds a little flaky. First of all, everyone who has ever seen a newborn baby is going to be able to tell the difference. A newborn looks like Yoda (in a beautiful, adorable way), and a month-old baby looks like a baby. Besides, Kim's just going to disappear from the tabloids for a full month? Yeah right! Like that's even possible at this stage in her life.
I don't buy it. But even so, that a rumor this insane even exists shows us all that we're way too obsessed with how much weight celebs gain during pregnancy. All those post-baby bikini photos are a little crazy-making, don't you think? Imagine the pressure! Can't a woman just be pregnant in the way her body wants to be pregnant without it turning into a PR disaster story?
Even if Kim is gaining SO MUCH weight, she's going to be just fine. She's short, for one thing, so she's going to look fuller just on account of there not being any place for that bump to go but everywhere. She may have some swelling. Honestly, I don't even think she looks that big. She's not like Jessica Simpson's last pregnancy. She's just gaining like any other woman would.
A more likely version of the rumor is that Kim is lying about her due date because she wants some privacy with her baby before the hordes descend. Now that I can understand!
