Khloe Kardashian confirms long-rumored pregnancy
After months of speculation, Khloe Kardashian confirmed Wednesday that she is indeed pregnant with her first child.
"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," Kardashian wrote in an Instagram post. "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 has long been rumored that the reality TV star was expecting, but neither she nor her family had confirmed the news.
Khloe did not specify the baby's sex in her post; however, news outlets have previously reported that she is expecting a son.
The father is her boyfriend of over a year, NBA star Tristan Thompson.
The pair first started dating in Sept. 2016 after meeting on a blind date, according to US Weekly.
Thompson, who already has a 9-month-old son with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig, plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Khloe made the announcement just days after she accidentally shared an image of a pregnancy pillow on social media over the weekend.
Her younger half-sister, Kylie Jenner, is also reportedly expecting a baby with her rapper boyfriend Travis Scott, while Kim will welcome her third child with husband Kanye West via a surrogate mum in early 2018.
