Earlier this week, Khloé Kardashian used social media to confirm the open secret she and her Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player boyfriend Tristan Thompson are expecting their first child together. After the Keeping Up with the Kardashians personality shared the Instagram post, Thompson shared a series of extra-special messages for her in the comments section. First, Kardashian's NBA star beau kicked off lovey-dovey sentiments and cute words about how beautiful he finds his GF:
Tristan Thompson mentioned Khloé Kardashian's appearance most likely because she had used the caption of the black-and-white photo announcement to express gratitude for Thompson, especially for making her feel beautiful every day of the pregnancy. However, after Thompson posted that initial comment, he decided to share even more:
Tristan Thompson then added another comment to express gratitude for his basketball player friend, Brandon Jennings, who introduced him to Khloé Kardashian:
Many entertainment news outlets began reporting rumors of the pregnancy over the summer. Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson decided to play it close to the chest for a while, to enjoy the news with close family and friends before talking about it with the press and public. Kardashian acknowledged this decision in her social media announcement.
Although Khloé Kardashian was coy about divulging the pregnancy news until recently, she has not been afraid to post pictures of herself with Tristan Thompson on social media. In fact, not long before making her pregnancy announcement, Kardashian uploaded this gem and wrote about how meeting Thompson changed her life:
Now that the pregnancy announcement is out of the way, people are already asking whether Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson will get married. In fact, many people who commented on the Instagram picture noted how Kardashian appeared to be wearing an engagement ring on her hand. It remains unclear whether Kardashian and Thompson plan to marry, so for now, KUWTK fans will have to enjoy the excitement of the baby news.
This child will be Khloé Kardashian's first and Tristan Thompson's second. He and retail entrepreneur Jordan Craig share a one-year-old son, Prince. Kardashian previously spoke about how getting to spend time with Thompson's firstborn child got her even more excited to have children of her own. Kardashian has said she wants a big family like the one she grew up in, and she cited her mom, Kris Jenner, as the role model who inspired that wish. Hopefully, Kardashian and Thompson will keep the posts about love (and babies) coming.
