Reality TV personality Khloe Kardashian finally confirmed that she is indeed pregnant.
After weeks of speculation, the co-star of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" made her pregnancy official on Dec. 20, the Daily Mail reports.
Khloe, 33, broke the news using an Instagram photo, posing with the father, 26-year-old basketball star Tristan Thomas. Her obviously pregnant belly is exposed and her ring finger adorned with a huge diamond.
The ring immediately prompted social media questions about whether or not the happy couple will be getting married.
One person wrote: "Is there another announcement to come? Is she engaged?... Also is nobody mentioning. The BIGA*S RINGS IN HER LEFT RING FINGER in [Khloe Kardashian's] baby bump photo? Like I wanna talk about that please ma'am..."
Another chimed in: "Is that a wedding ring too!? Also I'm so so so happy for you! Sending love and blessings your way, enjoy it... ALSO IS THAT AN ENGAGEMENT RING ????"
Shortly after sharing the photo, Khloe took to Twitter and thanked her fans, especially for their patience.
"I was so nervous to post our announcement but WOWWW I am overwhelmed with the response by you guys!!! Thank you! Thank you!" she wrote. "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."
She also thanked God: "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!"
Finally, she thanked the baby's father. "Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!!" she wrote. "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!"
Khloe's elder sisters, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, both of whom are parents, have been a huge source of support, reports E! News.
'"Kourtney and Kim have been giving her a lot of pregnancy tips and Khloe calls them for every little question she has," said an insider source for E! "She is really relying on her sisters through this pregnancy. Kourtney always shares her health tips."
The same source added: "The whole family is especially happy for Khloe's pregnancy, and thinks that this is going to be her best year yet. They all think she deserves it, and is in a really good place in her life."
On Twitter, Khloe summed up her pregnancy. "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!"
