It’s official! Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are expecting a baby!
After months of speculation, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star confirmed the pregnancy news with a poignant and sweet Instagram post on Wednesday.
The mom-to-be gushed over her impending “mommy” status and over her basketball-playing beau in the lengthy post.
And while the pregnancy reveal is big news, it shouldn’t come as a big surprise to fans. E! News first reported that Khloe was having a child back in September, but the usually forthcoming E! star kept mum about being a mom.
In today’s post, Khloe addressed her reasoning for being so secretive about the baby news in her Instagram post.
The expectant mom wrote, “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.”
Not retreating from social media all together, Khloe kept up with fans recently by only posting from the chest up. However, lookyloos were quick to spy that there was something that looked like a u-shaped pregnancy pillow reflected in the KUWTK star’s sunglasses.
All About Angles
Khloe strategically hid her body with her arm and niece Dream Kardashian in the Kardashian Christmas card.
The Eyes Have It
On Dec. 4, Khloe went for her go-to shield, her green Birkin bag, and an all-black ensemble to keep her privacy.
On Nov. 28, Khloe donned her all-black uniform for another trip to LAX. Despite her leggings, the reality star made sure she had an oversized sweatshirt and her Birkin to hide her growing form.
On Nov. 15, KoKo made sure to put her army green Birkin bag over her bump when she was flying out of LAX.
Layers on Layers
On Nov. 8, Khloe hide her baby bump while out filming with Kris Jenner and Scott Disick. She managed to hide her curves by wearing black and layering a long purple velvet duster.
Wearing baggy pajamas and only shooting from the chest up, Khloe was able to let fans know how her Thanksgiving was—without revealing her bump.
