A phenomenally-timed photo of Kendall Jenner had fans reaching for the smelling salts when they thought she was hiding some big news – despite it clearly being an odd angle.
The 27-year-old model was snapped out and about in Los Angeles on Tuesday, wearing a black vest and loose trousers, accessorised with a large brown leather tote bag.
Heading into a studio with her hair clipped up and oversized sunglasses on, it appeared to just be a usual, low-key spot for the Kardashians star.
However, fans were clutching at their pearls as it appeared that Kendall had a noticeable baby bump.
‘Baby bump????’ questioned one surprised person, while another exclaimed: ‘Get out.’
‘She’s pregnant yay,’ added someone else, and another joked: ‘Omg bad baby bunnies on the way.’

However, other social media users were a bit more clued up with what was going on in the photo as an impressive optical illusion was created by a woman behind her walking in the opposite direction.
A photo from a split second before showed the she crossed behind Kendall at the exact time the picture was snapped, lending her back and bum to the suggestion that the star had a bump.
‘It’s the butt of the woman behind her,’ one person pointed out in an effort to dispell the speculation.

‘Not someones ass being mistook [sic] for kendall jenner’s baby bump,’ commented someone else as another fan admitted: ‘This has really tickled me.’
‘It’s crazy how an optical illusion can create such buzz,’ added another person.
Others poked fun at the carefully curated world of Kendall and her sisters – Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Kylie – thanks to momager extraordinaire Kris Jenner.
‘Kris would not let this be the first time we see her pregnant bffr y’all,’ argued a separate fan.
Kendall has been reportedly been dating rapper Bad Bunny, 29, since earlier this year.
While neither have them have confirmed their romance, they’ve been photographed together on numerous occasions.
Rumours were first sparked in April when Kendall was spotted at his Coachella set.

However, the Puerto Rican star – real name Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio – has recently said that he won’t be commenting at all on their relationship status because he keeps his personal life private.
Speaking to Vanity Fair magazine, he shared: ‘I’m not really interested in clarifying anything because I have no commitment to clarify anything to anyone.
‘I am clear and my friend Jomar is clear and my mother is clear. They are the only ones to whom I have to clarify anything.’
