Another Kardashian/Jenner girl is having a baby. First Kim announced she and husband Kanye West are having a baby via a surrogate. Then sources revealed that little sister Kylie Jenner is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend, Travis Scott.
Now, there’s a baby on the way for Khloé Kardashian and her NBC boyfriend Tristan Thompson!
People reports that Khloe, 33, and her boyfriend, 26, are having their first child together. This is the first child for Khloe and the second for Thompson. The couple has been dating since September 2016.
“Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting, and they are absolutely thrilled,” a source told PEOPLE. “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.
It’s not clear when Khloe is due. A source conjectured that she is due in February, near her sister Kylie. Kim’s baby is due via surrogate in January.
“They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters,” says the insider. “Getting pregnant at the same time was totally unplanned, but they are really happy about it.”
The source said that although the sisters are bonding over the situation, Kylie’s pregnancy announcement pushed back Khloe’s announcement. It complicated the situation.
“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,” shared the source.
The source also commented on why 33-year-old Khloe just decided to have a baby now. She didn’t choose to have a baby with her husband of seven years, Lamar Odom.
“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. 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,” shared the source.
People couldn’t contain themselves on social media when they found out about the pregnancy; Twitter erupted with memes and reactions.
