We really shouldn't be surprised by anything that Kim Kardashian does at this point, but somehow she manages to outdo herself when she's sharing bits of her life no any form of social media. Recently, the reality star Snapchatted her pregnancy scare on an airplane, and naturally, the event led to a variety of reactions. Kim explained herself: "Let’s discuss. Some people were asking me, 'Why would I Snapchat the pregnancy test on the airplane?' And I just thought it was, like, funny, because I've been so private before and what do I really care if I was pregnant again?" Good point. Why not do it?! That must be what Kim thinks about almost everything that she does. Okay, she probably thinks it about everything. Here are 15 reactions we had about this Snapchat story, and we think that you probably felt the exact same way!
15 Did She Really Need Six Pregnancy Tests?
When Kim decided to document her pregnancy testing on Snapchat for all of the world to see, she didn't use just one test. And she didn't use two tests. Nope, she used six tests! Yes, really. Since when does it take six tests to confirm a pregnancy?! You can definitely imagine taking a few tests if the idea of being pregnant is totally freaking you out, but after that you would probably just head to the doctor to confirm what you already knew to be true. Kim, however, doesn't do much anything on the small scale, so it actually makes a weird sort of sense that she would go big when it comes to this topic, too. The first test ended up being negative, so she didn't have to use the rest that day. We really wonder what she did with all the extras? We're just super confused that she would need so many tests when she's clearly okay with the idea of having a baby.
14 Why The Plane Bathroom?
Public bathrooms can be pretty questionable in general, but airplane bathrooms are notoriously cramped and uncomfortable. You can hardly change a shirt in there, so peeing on a stick was probably a bit of a challenge for Kim. So why did she take the test in there as opposed to some other public bathroom? Sure, maybe there's a little more privacy in there than there would be in the bathroom at the airport terminal, but think of how thrilling it would have been for the other patrons to listen in as Kim snapped away. Although now that we think about it, would Kim ever use a public bathroom in an airport terminal? Are there VIP bathrooms at LAX that we've never heard about? Maybe there isn't a good explanation. Maybe this is just something that we have to accept and realize we may never know the true reason behind it.
13 Do Kim And Kayne Want Another Kid?
Kim and Kanye already have two children, and Kim had some pretty rough pregnancies. So seeing the possibility of them having number three on the way just six short months after the birth of Saint makes you wonder if they would be happy or nervous about it. We did see that on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim mentioned how Kanye is ready for number three, but then again he isn't the one carrying these babies. When Kim got pregnant with North she was diagnosed with preeclampsia, which can be life threatening for both mom and baby. It causes high blood pressure as well as a lot of body swelling, neither of which sound fun. So yeah, while people were making memes out of Kim's swollen pregnant feet she was actually battling a serious health issue that contributed to that. Her first pregnancy actually had to be induced five weeks early to safely deliver North. So yeah, we're wondering how she really feels about this.
12 Did She Just Have A Test On Her?
Personally, we don't really think that most people (make that all people...) carry around a pregnant test in their purse on a regular basis... let alone when traveling. So the question is then... why did Kim have one? It even seems unlikely that they were selling them at the airport because it's not really that kind of item. Also, how did no one catch her buying these tests? It's important, but it can usually wait a few hours since most likely nothing is going to change in a pregnancy status mid flight. And there's nothing you can do about it either way while you're flying anyway. Besides snap, apparently. Is it possible that this was some sort of masterful advertisement for Clear Blue and Kim was actually getting paid shit tons of money to pretend that it wasn't?? Perhaps she was trying to get a deal?? These Kardashians are marketing geniuses, we tell you.
11 Why Do We Care?!
A pretty natural reaction to have in this situation is realizing that you actually care about the results of this pregnancy test but also have absolutely no idea why. It's not like you know Kim or Kanye personally (probably), and you probably wouldn't ever meet the potential new baby either. And yet, it's just so endlessly fascinating. Honestly, it's maybe because they've shared so much wit the world that you feel like you are part of this too. Kim just does everything on a larger scale that doesn't reflect real life for most of us. Who could forget her Troop Beverly Hills-themed baby shower? Kim got all of her guests into matching striped PJs to sit on the floor and in tents at the Beverly Hills Hotel. They also had a brunch with hot cocoa and beignets which sounds so fun that it's even fun just to look at the photos. Why we aren't we all having themed parties all the time?
10 Is There Anything Kim Won't Share?
Sharing the moment that you could potentially find out if you were pregnant is about as personal as the actual baby making... but then again, we're taking about a reality TV star here. It's hard to imagine there being anything that Kim wouldn't be comfortable sharing at this point. But then again, maybe she would want to have this moment with her family first before going straight for Snapchat. Although for a while she did keep North off of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but she didn't keep her away from the paparazzi, so that can be kind of confusing. Speaking of North and the paparazzi, how could anyone forget that adorable moment where North exclaimed "I said no pictures" as she was being dragged out of ballet class by the hand of her doting nanny. This is really such a weird moment but super adorable and charming at the same time. So there's that.
9 How Many People Watched This Go Down?
Kim posted a couple different snaps during this situation. In the first one, she explained that she was having a pregnancy scare and would be taking a test, and in the second one she showed the actual test with its "negative" result. Kim was a little later to the Snapchat game than her sister Kylie was. And Kylie, of course, pretty much is the Queen of Snapchat and she pretty much became the snap master being the first person to pass ten million followers. Snapchat doesn't actual release the actual numbers of followers for some reason, but Kim is supposedly the fifth most followed person on the platform. Kim once actually visited the Snapchat headquarters and face swapped with the guy who invented face swap which is really quite something. She also was the first to get a Marilyn Monroe filter that was created just for her. So we're just basically wondering how many people say these snaps and were fascinated by them like we were.
8 Would She Have Snapped A Positive Test?
Let's think about this for a second. If Kim was really taking her pregnancy test in real time for her Snapchat followers, would she really want them finding out before the rest of her family members did? What about her husband Kanye West who was sitting back in his plane seat... well, shouldn't he know before we do? It sort of makes you wonder if she knew she wasn't pregnant and the whole thing was set up. Or maybe she just really wouldn't care if the public found out first. Maybe if Kim and Kanye have a third child they will let their followers vote on baby names or something. That definitely sounds like an interesting way to get the public more involved in their personal life. Maybe Kim just randomly did this without even thinking about the consequences or what would happen, so it's just one of those things where you act before you think.
7 She's A Little Cray
Love her or hate her, you probably still wonder from time to time is Kim is just plain crazy. Sure she could be a crazy genius, but still that requires being a little crazy. Let's not forget all the other times that Kim has made some moves that are a little out of the ordinary. When she and Kanye were redoing their house they decided to move the placement of the swimming pool because it wasn't "liveable." She had a 72 day marriage to a man with the same name as her mother. She once recorded a song called "Jam (Turn it Up)", endorsed toilet paper, She once said to W magazine “I’m so mature now. I’m a grown up version of myself.” She also thought that babies don't start walking until they're around two years old. So yeah. We just have to admit that sometimes she makes confusing choices and seems a bit out there. But then again, that's why we love watching and being part of it.
6 What Would They Name A Third Kid?
Kim and Kanye had the world buzzing when they went with the name North West for their first child. Then they had a son and named him Saint. Both are intense choices in different ways and they're definitely not average baby names, that's for sure. So the question is, what would Kim and Kanye possibly name a third child? Would they veer back into the directions and maybe go with East? Maybe tap into the Kardashian thing and with something that starts with a "K"? King West perhaps. Apparently the name Saint came from the fact that they considered him a huge blessing since her pregnancy was so challenging. Some sources claimed that big sister Kourtney did not approve of the name choice because she worried that the kid was going to get made fun of. But her youngest child is named Reign so it actually sounds like they're in pretty similar territories.
5 Is This More Scandalous Than Those Other Photos?
When it comes to what Kim shares, well, it's almost everything. It seems like whenever she posts a naked photo of herself people get really pissed, even though Kim is comfortable with doing it and her friends and family don't seem to mind either. Then again, some of them do this too! So where is the line between what is actually scandalous behavior from her and what isn't? I mean we've seen her in probably the most vulnerable and scandalous state anyone can be in with her homemade video, which we still aren't sure was leaked by the Kardashian family or not. Some people would argue that things that go on in the bathroom are more private than a photo of a naked body is, and clearly taking a pee test requires peeing on that thing that's she sharing. Like would people be more offended if Kim posted an actual photo of herself on the toilet than a shot of her deep cleavage or vice versa? That's one thing we haven't seen yet... Kim peeing.
4 At Least Her Clothes Are On
Some people love a good Kim Kardashian nude... while other people, well, not so much. There are quite a few celebrities who take great displeasure in it and actually claim that she is setting a bad example for the other girls of the world. One major Kim K critic is Chloe Grace Moretz, who has suggested that Kim could be a better role model by saying "I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies." But other celebs like Ariel Winters have suggested that it's sexist to comment negatively on Kim's choices when men don't take the same sort of heat for their actions. Ariel pointed out that "No one was body shaming @justinbieber when he posted his nude guitar photo so why @KimKardashian? #herbodyherchoice. I think everyone, men, and women, should have the right to choose what they do with their bodies – and not be criticized."
3 She's Being Brave
The thing about Kim Kardashian is, it's really good that we have her in the pop culture world. Whether you're super against her or you wish she was your best friend in the entire universe, you totally have to agree with that. It's really good to see someone who is pushing the boundaries in life... well, as long as they aren't hurting anyone. And Kim definitely isn't hurting anyone! On the one hand, she's sharing everything in her life, from beauty secrets to what she eats and how she works out to now her pregnancy tests. Normalizing the concept of sharing things can open the door for you to do the same thing if you feel it's appropriate in your own life. On the other hand, you can always do the total opposite of what Kim is doing... aka being super private and reserved. It's up to you.
2 Does Snapchat Pay Her?
You have to wonder how much of Kim's social media time is done by her... or done by her brand members... or if she even gets paid for what she posts and shares! Snapchat, after all, needs huge celebrities to keep using their service in this way so people will stick around and keep using the app, right? There's definitely a ton of social media competition these days since there are so many apps competing for attention. Imagine if you were making a paycheck just by posting a story like hers, which may or may not have even been real. In 2009, the Daily Mail reported that Kim was getting paid around $10,000 per tweet to discuss different products that she was endorsing, and seven years later you can only imagine how much money she now pulls in for doing the same. The only question is who is paying Kim in this circumstance, the pregnancy test people, Snapchat, or all of the above?
1 What Phone Case Does Kim Use?
If you look at any of Kim's selfies, you'll notice that she has a pretty serious looking phone case on her phone, and it's for a good reason. No, it's not for protecting the phone. That's too normal for her. It's for taking better selfies. Kim uses a LuMee phone case which literally has a light around it to create that perfect selfie lighting. Because of course, the iPhone only has a flash on the backside of the camera, and selfies are taken from the front side. This handy case handles all of that and not only creates light but creates really good light. The LED panels make for an extremely flattering photo, and there are three different light levels to choose from. Kim of course, gets paid to endorse the thing, and obviously, it's working because here I am writing about it. And why wouldn't you wonder what she uses, especially if you can get it and hope to look just as good.
