There are many big questions heading into 2019:
Will the government ever re-open?
Will the McRib return?
Will some beautiful rogue asteroid finally put us all out of our misery?
But for gossip purposes, there may be no greater concern than the rate at which our planet's Kardashian population will expand in 2019.
(Although that asteroid one is a pretty close second.)
So just how many Kardashians are already pregnant and how many Kris Jenner grandbabies are coming down the pike?
Join us as we answer the questions that keep Americans up nights:
Tough to Top
2018 was a banner year for Kardashian fertility, as Kylie, Khloe, and Kim all welcomed new children.
A Solid Start
It won't be easy to put up even bigger numbers in the new year, but believe it or not, the Kards may be committed to doing exactly that.
Who Ordered the #4?
We learned this week that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their fourth child, a boy, via surrogate.
Switching It Up
Kim is using a different surrogate than the one she hired to carry Chicago West. The unidentified woman is said to be due in May.
And with that, Kim will officially become the baby-makingest of all her siblings.
Kourt is Adjourned
Kourtney Kardashian previously led the way with three kids, but it seems the eldest Kard sister has closed up shop for the time being.
Kylie and Khloe are first-time moms; Kourt is single, and Kendall is focusing on her career. So Kim should be the only one with baby news to share in 2019, right? Well ...
For one thing, insiders have already indicated that Kylie and Khloe would very much like to be pregnant at the same time again -- and as soon as possible.
Sources say Kylie very much wants little Stormi to have a younger sibling, and she would like for them to be "close in age."
Khloe is reportedly eager to hurry things along for different reasons. At 34, she feels she may not have many more chances to expand her family.
Cause For Concern?
Khloe's not old by any means, but she's said to be concerned by the issues that Kim experienced with her third pregnancy.
Not to Worry
Of course, Khloe is wealthy enough that she'll have plenty of options if she finds that she's unable to welcome new children the old-fashioned way.
Can't Stop, Won't Stop
Hell, as Starcasm reminds us, there have recently been rumors that Kris Jenner is planning to welcome another child!
No, Really ...
We assume she would adopt or take a page from Kim's book and hire a surrogate. It's really not that crazy when you think about it ...
Age Is Just a Number
Kris is a very young 63, and those close to the momager and her boyfriend say that Corey Gamble very much wants to start a family.
That Leaves Kendall ...
At this point, Kendall is the only one of her sisters who's still childless.
Above the Drama
And remarkably, she hasn't even been the subject of any semi-credible pregnancy rumors.
Kendall has been dating NBA star Ben Simmons on and off for the better part of a year, but the tabloids have spared her the usual pregnancy speculation.
Her Own Woman
It's yet another indication that while Kendall remains very much a part of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, she's successfully carved out her own identity in the media.
Whatever the Case ...
We think it's safe to say Kim won't be the only welcoming a new bundle of joy in 2019.
