AceShowbiz - It's a baby boom in the Kardashian/Jenner family. After struggling with fertility issues, %cKhloe Kardashian% is reportedly pregnant with her first child with boyfriend %cTristan Thompson%. The news came days after %cKylie Jenner% was rumored to be expecting her own baby with %cTravis Scott (II)% and weeks after %cKim Kardashian% was rumored to hire a surrogate to carry her third child with %cKanye West%.
Us Weekly was the first to break the news before PEOPLE corroborated it. While Khloe's rep declined when asked for comment, a source told PEOPLE, "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."
"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."
The insider added, "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."
Khloe Kardashian, 33, started dating 26-year-old basketball player Tristan Thompson in September 2016. In a recent episode of "Keeping Up with the kardashians", she revealed that she stopped her birth control. "He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that's lovely," she said. "We could start at one and then grow from there. But now, knowing I'm not on birth control, it's really scary. It's like a really big step."
Rumor has it, Khloe ans Kylie are due around the same time, early next year. The baby will be Khloe's first child but Tristan's second one. She was previously married to another NBA star %cLamar Odom%. They have no children together. Meanwhile, Tristan welcomed a son named Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig in December 2016.
Khloe and Tristan were recently hit engagement rumors. "I'm in the best relationship I've ever been in and it doesn't take a ring for me to feel that way," she said. "My boyfriend is very protective of me. Feeling loved and validated and secure is a huge thing. Tristan is protective of my entire family, which is beautiful. And I love that everything we do is as a union. When he speaks, it's 'us' and 'we,' and that's important because it shows that you're sharing life."
