So perhaps Scott Disick was hoping to win approval when he called his partner 'an angel' after posting a picture of her pulling up her top to reveal her stomach and bra.
But the 30-year-old's posting on Instagram on Monday also had an unexpected effect, as fans speculated wildly he was hinting the Keeping Up With The Kardashians favourite is pregnant.

But other fans were convinced he was being ambiguous to trick his followers.
Slated: Scott came under fire earlier this year when he took a dig at Kourtney's weight post pregnancy
Earlier this year, Scott caught flack after he told Kourtney, who was struggling to get back in shape after giving birth to their second child, 'If I would have fell in love with you a couple of pounds overweight, this would be my ideal weight, but I fell in love with you when you were super skinny.'
Scott was then shown ranting to camera in an episode of Kourtney And Kim Take Miami: 'Right now seems to be probably the heaviest she's ever been not pregnant.
'When we had Mason I remember her trying to whip herself back into shape pretty quick. This time around it seems like it's the least of her concerns, and the only thing she thinks about are the kids.
Speculation: The reality personality's fans though he was dropping a hint she was pregnant again
But he refused to back down after he was slated by fans of the show.
He posted on Twitter: 'Never realized how upset people get when a person makes a comment about weight.
'P.s anyone who has to much to say probably had to much to eat. #fatasses.'
