After weeks of speculation, Khloe Kardashian has confirmed through a social media post that she’s pregnant.
Kardashian, 33, unveiled her baby bump with a picture on Instagram Thursday, saying her “greatest dream” has been realized. The photo shows Kardashian and her boyfriend and father of the baby, Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, cradling her bump.
“We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along,” Kardashian said in the post.
The reality TV star said she and Thompson, 26, wanted to keep the news private for as long as possible, but decided the time was right to go public.
“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,” she said.
Kardashian said the pregnancy is overwhelmingly emotional.
“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!”
Thompson and Kris Jenner also celebrated the public announcement of the news.
“God is so good!! I am beyond excited! What a blessing,” Jenner wrote on Instagram in a repost of Kardashian’s photo.
“My love, thank you for (allowing) me to be a part of your journey in life and allowing to share this moment with you this is something (I’ll) always cherish. Girl you look better now,” he wrote under his girlfriend’s post.
Both of her sisters, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, already have children. Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West are expecting their third child, a daughter, via surrogate. Their younger half sister, Kylie Jenner, is rumored to be expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Travis Scott.
