The 33-year-old reality star is set to welcome a baby girl in a few weeks’ time with her boyfriend Tristan Thompson, after the news was revealed on the season finale of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’.
Taking to her Twitter account on Sunday (03.04.18) after the episode aired in the US, the 33-year-old ‘Revenge Body’ star said: “God gives us what we need! His timing is never wrong! my hormones were IN RARE FORM for that news. I am now so excited my daughter will have forever best friends with Chicago and Stormi!! God is great!!! Thank you Lord for our princess.”
However, before learning the news, the star revealed earlier in the episode that she was “nervous” for all the change happening in her life and “anxious” to find out the gender.
She explained: “I have such anxiety and nerves to find out what I’m having.”
In the episode, Khloe found out what she and her 26-year-old NBA player boyfriend were expecting after her youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, was told the baby’s sex by Khloe’s doctor.
The 20-year-old beauty mogul then revealed the news to Khloe via a gender reveal cake, much to Khloe’s shock.
Khloe didn’t seem initially overjoyed by the news and admitted that she was hoping for a little boy.
She said: “I’m really hoping Kylie’s lying.”
Khloe and Tristan’s baby will be the third little girl to join the Kardashian/Jenner family this year, following the birth of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s baby Chicago – who was born via surrogate in January – and Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s baby Stormi, who was born two weeks later.
The pair announced that they were expecting their first child in December last year, after a whirlwind romance following their first meeting in 2016.
Posting a black and white picture of her bump to her millions of Instagram followers, she couldn’t contain her excitement over sharing her “magical” pregnancy with the world, after keeping it a secret amid months of speculation.
She wrote: “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 is now feeling “healthy and strong” in her third trimester after suffering with health struggles at the start of her pregnancy.
She posted: “I am so thankful that after my first trimester… my pregnancy has been so healthy and strong! God is great! Much luck to you and your family.”
Khloe said she had to take pills to overcome her low levels of progesterone – a hormone that helps in preventing miscarriages in early pregnancy – and that the medicine left her feeling “gross”.
She said: “Literally, I can’t walk. I just feel sick every night. I feel gross.”
Although the star managed to overcome the initial trouble, she admitted in an episode of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ that the early pregnancy complications is one of the reasons she was reluctant to share the news with the world straight away.
She said: “This is one example of why you don’t announce early. There’s a lot of complications. As soon as I get to my second trimester, I’ll have such relief and that’s what I’m waiting for.”
Meanwhile, Khloe admitted she knew Tristan was “the one” she wanted to spend the rest of her life with after only a short while of knowing each other, and said she took their relationship “very slowly” because she wanted to make sure they were on the same page when it came to the couples’ future.
Answering relationship questions on her app, she said: “My answer for this probably doesn’t apply to everybody, but I knew Tristan was the one very quickly – I have never felt so comfortable or so safe with someone. Because of that, I took it very slowly and was cautious about how I went about ‘us’. I made sure we had very in-depth conversations. I wanted to make sure that those conversations were backed up by actions.
“Tristan was so forthcoming with his life, as I was with mine. It was really reassuring to feel that someone had the same belief systems as I did. We spoke about religion, children and our families. I think all of those things are important to truly know the ins and outs of someone. It’s really easy to fall in love with someone during a honeymoon phase when you haven’t yet discussed the logistics of life. But you have to talk about the real things if you want a real/long-lasting relationship.”
An insider said that despite earlier trouble in their pregnancy, the couple are “solid” and are looking forward to a life together.
The source said: “Khloe and Tristan are more in love than ever. They are solid.
“Khloe is not a high maintenance pregnant woman, but it was kind of rough at first and he was there doing anything he could to make her comfortable and happy – he’s always telling her how beautiful she is.”
However, the pair aren’t in a rush to get married after Khloe’s divorce from her first marriage to Lamar Odom was finalised in 2016.
An insider told Entertainment Tonight: “Right now it’s just all about the new baby. They’re not rushing to get married, but they’re in it for the long haul for sure.
“Khloe’s been married and knows that it’s not the marker of a happy relationship. Khloe considers this her happiest and healthiest relationship and that’s the most important thing, not a ring or a piece of paper.”
Khloe and Lamar were married in 2009, three weeks after they made their first public appearance together.
However, Khloe filed for divorce in 2013 after allegations of drug abuse and cheating scandals surrounded them, but postponed the filings after Lamar was admitted to hospital in a coma after being found unconscious in a brothel so she could nurse him back to health.
Khloe is now happy with her “angel” Tristan and has praised him for making her pregnancy “as easy and beautiful as it can be”.
She shared: “Having a partner that is equally as excited as you are, and is such a support system, is crucial! Tristan has been an angel to me! This process is trying – physically and mentally – but Tristan has made everything as easy and beautiful as it can be! More than I could have imagined.”
