Khloé Kardashian sparked engagement rumors with a giant diamond ring

In December 2020, it seemed to fans that Kardashian had taken her relationship with Thompson to the next level after she was spotted out on the town wearing a massive diamond ring on her left ring finger.

Two months later, the Good American founder fueled engagement rumors even more when the diamond stunner appeared her finger in a Good American ad she posted to social media.

Naturally, the move got the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star a ton of attention, with many people freaking out over the possibility that she was subtly announcing that her on-again, off-again boyfriend Thompson had proposed.

Though Page Six later reported that the diamond wasn’t an engagement ring or even a gift from the NBA player, people weren’t convinced and continued to speculate that the pair were secretly engaged.

Kris Jenner shrugs off engagement speculation

Though Kardashian and Thompson have yet to publicly address the ongoing engagement rumors, momager Kris Jenner weighed in on this topic during a new episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

When asked about the giant ring the mom of one wore in the photo that sparked engagement speculation, Jenner brushed it aside as just an example of her daughter’s love of jewelry.

In addition to talking about the engagement rumors surrounding Kardashian and Thompson, Jenner also shared her thoughts on the couple’s plans to have another baby.

“I mean, I think it’s so great that they want to do that again and have a sibling for True because there’s nothing better than a big family and brothers and sisters and that’s just my heart,” the momager tells DeGeneres. “So, I’m really happy. I just want them to be happy and True will be so excited.”

As fans already know, Kardashian has expressed her desire to have baby no.2 with Thompson.

Over the past few months, the Good American founder has detailed her motherhood journey and recently shared that she’s “done IVF about three different times” and has already frozen her eggs once.

“I had about 12 or 14 eggs—I can’t really remember—and I defrosted them all to mix with sperm,” she said during a recent episode of the digital series Lady Parts. “None of them survived.”

Though the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic halted her plans to go through with IVF, Kardashian is still holding onto hope that she and Thompson will welcome another child one day soon.

“My plan was to have kids closer in age. But now with COVID and everything, my plan’s been a little delayed. I definitely do want more kids,” she said while appearing on the show “I think it’s such a blessing—especially during these times—to have a family member or people that you can play with and rely on and just have a buddy through life.”
