The members of the Kardashian family put their lives on hold so they could make sure Kim makes a full recovery from her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries. But it looks like Kourtney has to put her responsibility to Kim on hold for a while because she just announced that she and her longtime boyfriend, Scott Disick, are expecting their second child together.
Kourtney confirmed the news to Us Weekly, and explained how she took a pregnancy test five weeks ago and once she saw it was positive, she woke up Scott at 7 A.M to tell him they were expanding. And now that her immediate family knows, Kourtney couldn’t wait to share the news with everyone in the country, saying “Now I’m nine weeks along. You’re supposed to wait until 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.” She also said while she and Scott weren’t actively trying to have another child, their mindset was more like, “We just kind of said, ‘if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.'”
The cover of the tabloid (which will be on stands Friday) has a blurb on it that says, “How she & Scott went from separate bedrooms to expecting baby No. 2 — and why she still won’t marry him.” But previous seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians (and Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami) showed Kourtney and Scott frequently arguing over Scott’s drinking, and his habit of lying to her about how much liquor he’s actually consumed. There was even an incident where Kourtney and Scott had an argument and Scott was so angry he punched a mirror, severely cutting his hand in such a way it required surgery. So there’s definitely still tension in their relationship, and that’s probably why Kourtney is holding out on marrying him. But who knows? Maybe two babies in studded loafers will convince Scott he doesn’t need to get wasted to enjoy himself.
