Throughout December, Kim Kardashian West graced us with not one, not two, but 25 Christmas card-worthy photos of the Kardashian family.
Fans online speculated that Christmas was the perfect time for the reality TV stars to confirm Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy and hoped the 25th photo would maybe even reveal a baby bump.
These fans waited patiently as, day after day, West posted new photos of her family decked out in denim and white. When Khloé Kardashian confirmed her pregnancy on December 20, expectations rose higher.

Alas, day 25 only brought more of the same.

The replies to the tweet are filled with upset fans who are dismayed they did not receive the gift of a baby bump pic this year. Some have even called it the “biggest disappointment of 2017.”

Others hypothesize Jenner—who doesn’t even make an appearance in the photo—was maybe just hiding behind the Christmas tree.

Meanwhile, the only peep out of Jenner this Christmas manifested itself in a neck-up Snapchat of Khloé’s and an Instagram post of her on the cover of Love Magazine.
Looks like we’ll have to wait until 2018 to get any sort of confirmation from Jenner.
