Kourtney Kardashian is baring her body and her opinions.
E! News reports that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took to Instagram to dismiss pregnancy rumors yet again after a fan assumed that the celebrity’s recent post depicting her untouched/unfiltered body meant that she was expecting a child.
“Wait a minute. Did I miss that she’s pregnant?” the fan questioned, to which Kardashian responded by saying, “Nope, but you’re missing a woman’s body.”

Many fans sided with Kardashian and expressed their gratitude that the celebrity is embracing her real body as opposed to perpetuating a body standard that is both unhealthy and impractical. Still, there are those who wish to pry a bit further, as they are genuinely curious about how far along Kardashian has gotten in her pregnancy journey.
Is Kourtney Kardashian still planning on having another child?
While we don’t know the specifics of Kourtney Kardashian’s baby-making process, we do know that she has opted out of IVF (or in vitro fertilization) for the time being.
During the first season of The Kardashians, the 43-year-old reality star opened up about her many adverse reactions to IVF, including the way the procedure gave her menopause-like symptoms.
“Travis and I want to have a baby, and so my doctor took us down this road of doing IVF,” Kardashian shared on the Hulu reality series. “It hasn’t been the most amazing experience. The medication they’ve been giving me, they put me into menopause. Literally into menopause.”
She continued: “I think because I’m so clean and careful with what I put into my body it’s just having the complete opposite reaction and is working as a contraceptive instead of helping us.”
Since then, Kourtney Kardashian has been fairly private about her journey, not only because of the many trials and tribulations she’s faced thus far due to IVF but also because of the incessant number of times the public nitpicks at her body when she’s at her most vulnerable.
“Every single person on social media is always like, ‘Kourtney’s pregnant’, ‘Kourtney’s gained so much weight,” Kardashian expressed just months after having to address her pregnancy rumors on Instagram in November 2021. “And I’m like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through.”
How Kardashian felt in the first season may not be how she still feels now. But we’ll have to wait until The Kardashians returns with its sophomore season on Thursday, Sept. 22, only on Hulu to know where she currently stands on her baby-making journey.
