Khloé Kardashian just confirmed that she's pregnant with her first child on Instagram this evening. She posted a black and white photo of her and her boyfriend Tristan Thompson holding her baby bump, and wrote a heartfelt message in the caption:
My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life!
It was first reported in late September that Khloé was pregnant, but she and other members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan notoriously refrained from confirming or commenting on the news. The mom-to-be’s announcement comes almost two months after the rumors were first reported.
Kardashian, 33, acknowledged that she, Thompson, and their inner circle kept the baby news on the down-low so they could “enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately” and “enjoy our first precious moments just us.” She continued with a note to her fans, “Thank you all for understanding.”
This marks Khloé’s first child and Thompson’s second. The 26-year-old NBA player already has a one-year-old son, Prince, from a previous relationship. The couple is reportedly expecting a baby boy, but they have not yet officially announced the baby’s sex.
An hour after posting the photo on Instagram, Kardashian took to Twitter to reflect on her announcement and thank her fans for their responses to the news. "I was so nervous to post our announcement but WOWWW I am overwhelmed with the response by you guys!!!" she wrote.
