AceShowbiz - The Kardashian-Jenner clan began filming on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" Christmas special on Monday, October 16. Momager Kris Jenner took to her Twitter account that day to share an on-set photo featuring the famous family along with Olympic medal-winning figure skater Nancy Kerrigan as a special guest.
"Oh no big deal...just Ice Skating with @nancyakerrigan in Calabasas in 95 degree heat for our Christmas Special!!!!" so the 61-year-old matriarch captioned the snap. Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner were included in the group and posed with Santa Claus and his elves. But youngest daughter Kylie Jenner was absent from the pic.
The 20-year-old cosmetics mogul was actually present during filming, according to a source, but opted not to ice skate. "They taped a Christmas special at Kris' house. Kylie was there, but didn't ice skate. She kept in the background, but seemed great," the source tells PEOPLE. "Khloe took it easy as well. It was a scheduled taping."
Kim took to her Twitter account to share details with fans, explaining that filming began more than two months before Christmas so that it could air in time for the upcoming holidays. "We just started filming our 'KUWTK' Christmas Special! Can't wait for you guys to see this & see what our holiday prep is like!" she tweeted. "And lol yes we have to film it in October to air during the holidays!"

Kris sharing the on-set pic of the upcoming Christmas special from her home came more than three weeks after news of Kylie expecting her first child broke. It was reported that the "Life of Kylie" star confirmed to her friends that she's expecting a baby with boyfriend Travis Scott (II) and the rapper told his own pals that it's a baby girl.
"They started telling friends a few weeks ago," a source said at the time. "The family has known for quite some time. She is really excited and so is Travis!" The insider added, "It is an unexpected but completely amazing turn of events that she could not be more excited or thrilled about. Everyone is overjoyed for her. This is the happiest she's ever been."
Rumor has it that Kylie is due to give birth in February. Reps for the brunette stunner and the 25-year-old rapper have yet to confirm or deny the pregnancy news.
