Multiple sources have confirmed that Khloe Kardashian, 36, is four months into her pregnancy, expecting her first baby with 26-year-old NBA star boyfriend Tristan Thomson.
“Khloe is so happy you have no idea,” a source told E! News.
The news comes within days of Khloe’s younger sister Kylie’s reported pregnancy with rapper, singer, songwriter boyfriend Travis Scott. With Kim and Kanye West also expecting their third child through surrogacy, we now have three Kardashian-Jenner siblings expecting to deliver within a month of each other, sometime early next year.
A source is believed to have confirmed to PEOPLE that Khloe and the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star are, indeed, in the family way and are “thrilled” about the prospect of parenthood.
“This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle,” the source told PEOPLE.
Further substantiation came within hours of the news surfacing when E!News correspondent Ken Baker said on social media that he was “So happy to hear the news of Khloe K’s pregnancy!”
PEOPLE’s source went on to say that “Things were complicated a bit by Kylie’s announcement as they don’t want to be seen as intruding on that moment for her but it is now reaching a point where Khloe doesn’t want to be openly lying to people, and just staying quiet isn’t going to work anymore.”
“This is something Khloe has wanted for years and years and yet it’s more than that: she didn’t want it unless she was in the right relationship for it,” the source continued. “She never let it happen with Lamar, intentionally, and she never considered it with James or French or anyone else she has seen. But this is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.”
Khloe and Tristan have been in a relationship for a year now, having met on a blind date set up by a common friend back in September last year.
Speaking about her engagement rumors to “You” magazine in August this year, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star said, “I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way.”
Khloe also said in the “You” interview that she shared a common [religious] belief with Tristan and that it was important to her.
“Tristan and I are both Christians; we go to church, we pray, we’re vocal about God and spirituality,” she said. “A lot of my girlfriends get pregnant without talking about things such as religion with their significant others and then find they have different belief systems to them.”
Khloe has made no bones about the fact that she and Tristan have been looking forward to starting a family together.
“He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that’s lovely,” she said fondly of Tristan. “We could start at one and then grow from there. But now, knowing I’m not on birth control, it’s really scary. It’s like a really big step.”
If there is any merit to the story, it will be Khloe’s first child while Tristan has a nine-month-old son, Prince, with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
While the Kardashians or Tristan may not have confirmed the report, they have neither denied it, which, in itself, is a kind of acknowledgment of the news – as many would like to believe.
Here are some of the reactions on social media
