Khloe Kardashian confirms pregnancy

Khloe confirmed the news on Instagram.

After months of speculation, Khloe Kardashian has confirmed that she is expecting her first child.

The reality TV star announced the news on Instagram last night by posting a black-and-white photograph of her pregnant belly.

Khloe's hands can be seen resting on her stomach alongside those of her NBA player boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.

"My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!" began the 33-year-old in her lengthy paragraph.

 

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 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. 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!

Khloe revealed that the couple wanted to enjoy the first stages of the pregnancy "privately" before making the long-awaited announcement.

"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." she writes.

"To enjoy our first precious moments just us."

Following the public's response to the news, Khloe tweeted that she was "overwhelmed" by people's reactions.

Khloe's pregnancy news breaks one year after she finalised her divorce from former NBA star Lamar Odom - the pair wed in 2009 but split seven years later.

Last week, the fitness guru appeared to confirm the news during an emotional mid-season trailer for 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'.

After the announcement, fans took to social media to share their excitement and joy for the happy couple.

People are also hoping that Khloe's announcement will encourage her sister, Kylie, to confirm speculation surrounding her - Jenner is also said to be pregnant with her first child.

Kylie is yet to respond to the rumours.
