ocial media celebrity, Kim Kardashian, and her husband, rapper Kanye West, are officially expecting their third child. The couple are already parents to adorable 4-year-old daughter, North West, and sweet 1-year-old son, Saint West.
And while Kim Kardashian has always been a lightning rod for attention, both good and bad, her latest pregnancy announcement has people up in arms for a reason her first two pregnancies didn't.
So, what's different this time?
She's known by fans and haters alike as the celebrity who's become famous simply for being famous.
Even everyday social media posts like this draw all sorts of comments and shares.
But when she has BIG news? It tends to go totally viral.
Things get even nuttier for the tabloid magnet.
Last week, she made waves recently for posing as American icon Jackie O. Whether or not it’s in poor taste is for others to judge, but it speaks to how often the celeb icon attracts (and possibly courts) scandal.
Since becoming a mom 4 years ago, Kardashian has made some nontraditional parenting choices, but no one can say she doesn't love her kids, as evidenced by the many pictures of them together.
By all accounts, she’s a loving, attentive mom who also enjoys flaunting her sexuality, and that might be the rub when it comes to the criticism she’s facing today.
Now, she's got a third child on the way!
Surprisingly, the announcement came with a swift and angry backlash.
As the news came in, reactions were mixed, but one aspect of the pregnancy seemed to dominate the headlines.
Kim and Kanye are having a baby, but she isn’t pregnant.
So… how does that work?
