Everyone's got a few people high on their bump-watch list: their significant other, best friend, siblings, and if you have any interest in celebrity culture, the Kardashians. Kim Kardashian shared this morning that she and hubby Kanye West just welcomed their third baby into the world. Of course the internet is going bonkers over the arrival of the latest Kardashian baby, including another expecting mama from their clan, sister Koko, and Khloe Kardashian's sweet reaction to Kim's new baby daughter on Twitter sums up our sentiments exactly.
Khloé has always stepped up as the free-willed, adventurous, and doting aunt (probably a little rebellious, too) to all her nieces and nephews — North, Saint, Mason, Penelope, Reign, and Dream. The latest addition to the Kardashian family is sure to get just as much love, attention, and affection as the other mini Ks. Plus the fact that Khloé is pregnant only makes the deal even sweeter, because girlfriend has got baby on the brain more than ever. Since we assume she was overcome with emotion (par for the course when you've got a bun in the oven), instead of offering a cliche statement, or any words of advice or congrats, she just let a series of heart emojis say it all in her first tweet since the announcement (which re-tweeted big sis Kim's):
You can trace Khloé's link back to Kim's short and sweet baby announcement on her website. Judging from the details that were shared, it sounds like all is peachy in the land of KKW, as the message is full of positive vibes:
Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl. We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.

Thank goodness for modern medicine which gave the celeb fam the option to hire a surrogate to grow their adorable family. If you're not aware, one of the reasons why Kim decided to hire a surrogate for her third pregnancy is because during her first two, she suffered from a very serious condition called pre-eclapsia, which I can attest (because I had it, too) can be a very scary thing. Because it is caused by high blood pressure, you basically need to omit any stress-inducers from your life since they elevate your blood pressure which puts your health, even life, at risk. The only way to cure yourself of this condition is literally to get the baby out of your body, which is easier said than done. Not only is the pregnancy journey riddled with stress and fear that your baby is not getting the oxygen they need, but everything is seemingly made more difficult. Bi-weekly ultrasounds, weekly doctor visits, blood pressure monitoring multiple times a day, endless cups to pee in, and a seemingly abnormal amount of blood work are just some of the "perks" that come with being diagnosed with pre-eclampsia. I was definitely clocking in way more hours at the doctor's office than my pregnant friends who didn't have any pregnancy complications.
Luckily, Kim can now put all that stress behind her as her daughter is finally here and Khloé can continue to be the badass aunt she has always been until she delivers the baby she's expecting with beau Tristan Thompson. OK, let's be honest, even when Khloe's baby arrives, you know she is not going to let her coolest-aunt status go to one of her sisters. There's only one Kardashian who can rock out Khloé, and that's Aunt KoKo herself.
