Khloe Kardashian finally confirms pregnancy on Instagram
I admit, I cannot keep up with the Kardashians. There are way too many people in this family and it's really stressing me out. I try to follow their whirlwind romances, fabulous fashion lines, and suspicious Snapchat photos, but it is overwhelming. Then, just when I think I can finally keep up with them, they make more Kardashians! It never ends!
2017 was the year of the great Kardashian Pregnancy Watch. They dropped tantalizing clues they were preggers on social media, but refused to confirm anything. For months, fans analyzed their cryptic photos, searching for baby bumps like Captain Ahab sought the white whale Moby Dick. Not to imply pregnant ladies look like whales. They do not. They look beautiful. Anyway, the wait is over!
First Kim Kardashian announced she was pregnant through a surrogate. Then a source basically confirmed Kylie Jenner was expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott ("Straight up!"). Reports indicated news about Khloe Kardashian was coming soon. A source told People Magazine:
"Yes, Khloe and Tristan are expecting and they are absolutely thrilled. 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.
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."
But when would we finally see a baby bump, to make it official? Just before the holidays. We knew it was coming, after watching the new Keeping Up With The Kardashians trailer, but I'm going to consider it a Christmas miracle. Thanks, Santa Kardashian!
In the caption, Khloe gushes that this is her "greatest dream realized," and thanks her boyfriend, basketball player Tristan Thompson:
"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life!
Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time!
Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quite 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. 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! ❤️❤️❤️"
Congratulations to Khloe and Tristan, Kylie and Travis, Kim and Kanye, and everyone else! We'll miss searching for clues in your sneaky Snapchat photos, but it's great to confirm you're knocked up. It's impossible to keep up with you guys, but it's fun trying.
