The worst-kept secret in Calabasas has finally been confirmed: the tall one is pregnant. And celebrity reactions to Khloé Kardashian's pregnancy announcement seem to hint that most of her nearest and dearest already knew, since there's nary a shocked tweet to be found. The Revenge Body host spilled the beans with an Instagram post on Wednesday evening, complete with a very lengthy caption:
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! ❤️❤️❤️
There's no word yet on a due date (or when the photo was taken) but earlier, unconfirmed reports claim that the the reality star's first child with Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson is scheduled to arrive sometime in February. Thompson's son Prince just celebrated his first birthday last week.
It was expected that Kardashian would make the announcement on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and a teaser for the Jan. 7 episode heavily implies that's the case, but it seems that she got the OK from executive producer/mom Kris Jenner to drop the bomb a little early. Jenner reposted the photo to her own account on Thursday morning, adding her own caption: "God is so good!! I am beyond excited! What a blessing!!!!!!!" Other celeb (and pseudo-celeb) reactions are similarly thrilled for the mom-to-be, with one snarky exception:
The world's most-hated reality star, Spencer Pratt, has something to say about the very prominent branding on Kardashian's sports bra, alluding to the FTC's recent crackdown on celebrities posting sponsored content without disclosure. Pratt just welcomed his first child, son Gunner Stone, in October.
All kidding aside, a welcome pregnancy is great news, and a few celebs hopped on Kardashian's post with well-wishes. Singer Cheryl Tweedy, a new mom herself, posted, "Khloeeee!!! such amazing news. I could not be happier for you. You gorgeous soul! You are about to have the best, most precious time of your life. And you truly deserve it. Congratulations Mommy. Wishing you a happy healthy pregnancy and what a wonderful way to start a new year," according to The Sun.
Model Bella Hadid commented, "I am completely in tears Khlo I’m so happy for you you are going to be the best mama," People reported. And Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown chimed in, "Omg absolutely amazing! congrats!" And Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her daughter, Brielle, also congratulated the parents-to-be.
But the best comment of all comes from Dad himself, Thompson, who wrote:
My love, Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your journey and entering your life that day at the bel air hotel. One of the best moments in my life. I'm soo happy to be on this journey together with you and creating this angel from the man above. Everyday I give thanks to him for bring us together. I love you soo much and I know our little angel feels the love we share together and will know that mommy and daddy loves them unconditional forever and ever amen.
Congratulations to them both, and can we please get an update on Kylie now?
