Family members are usually thrilled when someone in the clan becomes pregnant as babies are a reminder of the circle of life.
But when Kim Kardashian found out her younger sister Kylie Jenner was expecting a baby with rapper Travis Scott, she ‘didn’t respond well at first,’ according to a Tuesday report from People.
‘Her first reaction was, “Seriously?”‘ a source told the site. Kim has two children with Kanye West and is reportedly expecting a third, a daughter, via surrogate in January.
Also on Tuesday TMZ reported Kylie got pregnant after two months of dating the Goosebumps singer.

As far as Kim’s reaction to Kylie’s baby news, the family friend told People: ‘She didn’t respond well at first. It’s like she and Kanye had gone on this whole journey to get pregnant for months, and now this happens to Kylie.
‘She teared up. It definitely took a lot of time for her to process it.’
Both Kim and Kanye were ‘stunned by the news.’
The source added: ‘It came out of nowhere. It was the last thing on their radar.
‘Kylie is just 20 and hasn’t been with Scott for very long. So no one saw this coming.’
But Kim will be there for her youngest sibling.
‘Of course Kim is happy for Kylie,’ the source continued.
They have seemed like rivals: It appears that the 20-year-old Jenner has copied Kim’s style, but the older sibling has tried to embrace it, even posing as a look-a-like with Kylie in April
‘She’s going to support Kylie 100 percent, no matter what. There’s never been any question about that.
‘But it’s just a weird dynamic, after all that Kim did to intentionally have another child. It has taken a lot of time, energy and money for her to get pregnant, and now Kylie is having a baby around the same time.’
But the patter of little feet will be sweet.

‘This is ultimately really great news, because it’s a new life,’ said the source.
It’s also interesting that Kim’s surrogate is due in January and Kylie is due the following month. According to TMZ, Kylie is having a girl.
‘The babies will be the same age, and will probably be very close,’ the source said. ‘Family is everything for the Kardashians, so they’re going to focus on these new kids in the family. Everyone is genuinely happy.’

The family is ‘cautiously optimistic’ about rapper Scott, it was added by the People source. ‘They don’t know him too well,’ the source said.
‘They just want to make sure that this isn’t a Blac Chyna situation. Kylie is so young and everybody is afraid that she could get really hurt.’
People claimed her mother Kris Jenner is still ‘adjusting to the surprise news.’ Here she is seen last week in Milan
Chyna caused waves in the family in 2016 when she became engaged to black sheep Rob Kardashian, 30, had his baby Dream and broke up with him earlier this year.
Later on Tuesday TMZ added that the entire family was at first stunned then happy for Kylie.
Other details were released, such as how she got pregnant after dating Scott for only two months and how she never wanted to have a baby with Tyga because she didn’t feel the relationship was ‘solid’ enough.
Kylie has yet to confirm that she is pregnant.
But on Monday Caitlyn Jenner’s rep said she has known for ‘some time.’
However, Kim stated in a tweet on Tuesday that Cait never said that.
‘And speaking of fake stories… The media is super shady for posting fake quotes from Caitlyn when she hasn’t spoke to anyone.’
Kris has not said a thing yet.
And that may be because, like Kim, she is stunned too.
‘Of course, Kris will support Kylie being a mom. But she is still adjusting to the surprise news.’
And the insider added that Kris is doing ‘whatever she can’ to make sure her Kylie’s cosmetics empire thrives.

‘Kris is just trying to control what she can and make sure no one forgets Kylie is also a businesswoman. She wants to set Kylie Cosmetics up to sell,’ said the friend.
The company is expected to have $386 million in sales in 2017, according to WWD.
‘Kylie has worked so hard to build that empire.
‘Kris doesn’t want to see the pregnancy affect how that is perceived,’ the source added.
Kylie has been seen since the news broke.
Over the weekend she pulled up her shirt and touched her tummy as she posed with her friend Jordyn Woods.
It was too difficult to tell if she had a bump or not.
The star was also seen with Travis going to his iHeart Radio performance. Again she wore a baggy T-shirt.

A further source told People magazine that Kylie was overjoyed about her pregnancy.

‘It is an unexpected but completely amazing turn of events that she could not be more excited or thrilled about,’ they said.
Kylie began dating Travis back in April following her split from former long-term boyfriend Tyga, who has a child, son King Cairo, with Blac Chyna (Rob Kardashian’s ex).
Four months ago – around the time she fell pregnant – Kylie went on a charity trip to Peru. Keeping Up With The Kardashians viewers were watching as a private jet made a pit stop in Miami to collect her, after she spent a romantic few days with Travis.
