In October, rumors started spreading that Khloé Kardashian and her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, were expecting a baby together.

Multiple outlets confirmed the pregnancy in late October, but the entire Kardashian clan kept their lips sealed.

On December 20, 2017, Khloé turned to Instagram to inform her 70 million followers that she and Tristan are, in fact, expecting! She posted an adorable photo of her belly to share the news.

This will be Khloé’s first child, and Tristan’s second. He also has a 1-year-old son named Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig.

It’s believed that Khloé is pregnant with a baby boy, but she has yet to confirm the gender of the little one.

Khloé has openly spoken about wanting children on her family’s show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and now she’s absolutely overjoyed to be pregnant.

In her Instagram announcement, she wrote a heartfelt thank you note to Tristan, which you can read below.
