Back in September — four months ago! — multiple outlets reported that Khloé Kardashian is expecting her first child with boyfriend and NBA star Tristan Thompson. However, this wasn’t confirmed by Khloé herself…until now. Today, the youngest Kardashian sister announced that she is indeed pregnant in an Instagram photo featuring Thompson and her baby bump.

Khloé went on to credit the father of her future child for making this time of her life magical. She specifically thanks Thompson for making her feel beautiful at all stages, and for making her a mom.

As for why Khloé waited to make this announcement?

The soon-to-be mom explained that she wanted to fully enjoy this special time with her close friends and family. Considering that this is a transformative period in Khloé’s life, we can understand and respect why she would want to keep her pregnancy private for as long as possible.

As for Kylie Jenner and her reported pregnancy, we’ll just have to wait and see.
