We may think that we know everything about the Kardashians, but that's not really true. We've been keeping up with the reality TV family for eleven years, but everything they've shared with us have been carefully planned and calculated.
Khloe Kardashian's pregnancy is a perfect example.
The 33-year-old was rumored to be pregnant since last fall, but despite the never-ending speculation and confirmation from sources close to the family, she did not officially reveal the news until last December.
Khloe shared a photo of her belly on Instagram and revealed in the captions that she and her NBA star boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, have a baby on the way. She called the milestone "my greatest dream realized."
"We are having a baby!" Khloe wrote. "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."
Khloe struggled with fertility issues in the past, which rendered her unable to have a child with her ex-husband, NBA player Lamar Odom. So as expected, when she found out she was finally going to be a mom, she wanted to keep the news between her family and friends for a while.
"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 ❤️."
However, the reality star later revealed that the real reason she kept the happy news under wraps was because she was worried about having a miscarriage, especially since her body doesn't produce enough of the hormone progesterone. This hormone is very important during pregnancy.
"If the doctor is telling me not to announce anything until a specific time then I respect that. I hate that everyone is prying and so nosy. It's super frustrating.”
Ever since the Kardashian sister was given the clear, she has been sharing more and more details about the bun in her oven with the public. Still, people found something else to speculate about: the baby's sex.
Khloe kept that piece of information on the down low for a while, but she finally confirmed it on the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
