Highly unlikely it will happen. Very uncommon for them to breed in captivity.
Here is some info. Just try google next time.

I saw your other thread about this, and I meant to respond. Technically, synodontis don't get pregnant: they carry eggs, and I don't think they generally look pregnant when they are carrying eggs. Once the eggs are released, they would need to be fertilized by a male to be viable.

Not sure if you can tell by looking at them if they are carrying eggs. Even so, as Mike noted above, breeding in captivity is not that easy. Fish often lay eggs that do not get fertilized, get eaten, or otherwise don't survive to hatch. And some have very specific breeding habits/needs. For example, synondontis multipunctatus trick mouthbrooding cichlids into caring for their babies (they are know as "cuckoo catfish" for this reason). I don't know about your particular type of synodontis, except that google suggests they do not tend to breed in captivity.
