Khloe Kardashian is playing coy about the status of her relationship with baby daddy Tristan Thompson after showing off a huge diamond engagement ring online.

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" reality TV star shared a close up snap of her buttocks as she posed on her knees by an outdoor pool, wearing a pair of ankle boots from her new Good American shoe line.
 

She captioned the picture: "New @goodamerican shoes are dropping 2.25."

But it wasn't the fancy footwear that caught her Instagram followers' eyes -- it was the giant pear-shaped rock perched on her left ring finger. The boulder was on full display as she rested her perfectly-manicured paw on her derriere.

Fans were quick to speculate about the real purpose of Khloe's post, with one writing, "Is this her way of letting us know she's engaged?!" Another commented, "Ain't nobody lookin at those boots, hunny. We are looking at that RING!!!!"

Khloe, 36, has yet to address the new ring, but it appears to be the same piece of jewelry she was first spotted wearing on Christmas Day 2020, when she visited her baby daddy Tristan in Massachusetts, after he signed to the Boston Celtics.

She made the trip from her home in Los Angeles with the on/off couple's two-year-old daughter True Thompson, who they co-parented while living under the same roof during the coronavirus shutdown.

Khloe's social media reveal emerges just days after 40-year-old Kim Kardashian claimed her little sister was worried about what fans will think if she publicly reunites with Tristan.

Khloe and Tristan, 29, famously split following his cheating scandal in 2018.

The couple reunited, but called it quits again in February, 2019, after the NBA star was caught on camera kissing Jordyn Woods, the former personal assistant to Khloe's youngest half-sister, Kylie Jenner.

Speaking to Tristan in a teaser for this week's "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" episode, Kim said, "I don't even think it's up to her anymore about getting over the past things that you guys have been through. I think it's just mostly what other people are gonna think. I think she's totally fine, otherwise she wouldn't be hanging out with you 24/7."

Tristan agreed, replying, "She's carrying a suitcase of other people's opinions and thoughts."

Khloe was previously married to retired basketball player, Lamar Odom, from 2009 until their divorce was eventually finalized in 2016.

"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" was canceled in 2020.
