One thing Ellen DeGeneres is not is a pushy host, but when 61-year-old Kris Jenner joined her on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for a pre-recorded interview, the famous comedienne proved she can grill her guests when she needs to.
The 61-year-old matriarch of the Kardashian/Jenner family guested on the 45th episode of the show’s fifteenth season which aired on Friday, November the 3rd and fielded some personal questions from Ellen regarding the all-present pregnancy rumors regarding her daughters and the division of money in their household.
Scroll down for a video showing Kris jokingly shrugging off questions about Khloe and Kylie being pregnant, by joking that she’s waiting to announce their baby news on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians so she can get a 10 percent cut, due to her executive producer status.
“I can feel where this is going. You’re trying to trick me into confirming pregnancies,” Kris said.
“You’re waiting for your show to do it,” Ellen countered, referring to the 14th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians currently airing on E! Entertainment Television.
Ellen joked that Kris should get pregnant for yet another source of income before she congratulated her guest on expecting another grandchild from her daughter Kim Kardashian who is expecting her third child with husband Kanye West via surrogacy in December.
“Probably, Khloe and Kylie, probably,” Ellen attempted once more, referencing the wild rumors about Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner’s alleged pregnancies.
The 59-year-old host then continued to grill her guest by pointing out that Khloe already labeled her boyfriend Tristan Thompson as the father of her baby with her recent ‘That’s daddy’ label of him on Snapchat.
But ‘The Momager’ still wouldn’t give in and said it could have meant “who’s your daddy” or “maybe it was more sexual, I don’t know, maybe,” to which Ellen quipped: “That’s gross. That’s your daughter!”
Despite doing well to deflect the host’s attempts to get something out of her by using humor for a good part of the appearance, at that point Kris fumbled with her words and admitted that Ellen had her “wound up like a little top”.
Then, Ellen finally gave up and gifted Kris with three strollers for her daughters Kylie, Khloe and Kim and a large crib. The strollers were placed in front of cut-outs of Kim, Khloe and Kylie.
“Hi Khloe. Why are you pushing a stroller?” Kris said to the cut-out.
“Because she’s pregnant, that’s why,” Ellen answered.

Kris also revealed how the family split the $150 million from its new five-year deal with E! to continue their reality show.
“I’m lucky if I get paid,” Kris joked before revealing, “Everybody gets paid pretty much equally,” and said that “everybody’s happy, really happy”.
