Kim Kardashian is not pregnant with her third child.
Not yet at least.
Following an enticing promo Keeping Up with the Kardashians, however, in which Kim openly said she was interested in having a third child, E! has released a sneak peek at this Sunday's installment of the reality series.
It features Kim making a major move in the direction of another child.
"I have to go in and repair my uterus because I decided I'm going to try to have one more baby," the mother of two tells her parent and sisters at dinner.
She asks everyone gathered around:
"Isn't that exciting?"
Not exactly, they all basically respond.
Kim's pregnancy struggles with North West and Saint West were well-documented.
She suffered through complications both times and was told during her second go-around that she really should not get pregnant a third time.
It was simply too dangerous.
"Oh my god, I thought you were for sure done," Kendall Jenner replies to Kim’s announcement in the following clip, while Corey Gamble adds:
"I don't want you to, like, do anything risky."
Why does she want to go through with a procedure that would not even guarantee a safe and healthy pregnancy?
"Having more kids is definitely going to be a struggle," she admits in the confessional below, concluding:
"I've gone through so much with really bad deliveries that the doctors don't feel like it's safe for me to conceive again myself."
"This surgery is really the one last thing I can try."
Or it's a last-ditch effort by producers to drum up interest in a show whose ratings are failing and Kardashian is only saying this stuff for the camera.
Is that cynical of us to even suggest? Of course.
But is it that implausible for the Kardashians?
Considering the state of her marriage to Kanye West, along with her own mental state following that armed robbery in Paris?
It just seems unlikely, given those factors and her past experiences and comments, that Kim is really considering a third child.
We can, however, see her toying with the idea for the sake of dialogue and E! teasers, only to conveniently change her mind.
Check it out and see for yourself, though:
