She's finally here!
Congratulations are in order for Khloé Kardashian.
It’s been a long pregnancy of dodging baby rumors, hiding budding bumps and — most recently — facing allegations of infidelity. But after nine months, the reality star has given birth to her first child — a girl — with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
It’s a great day in the Kardashian household!
According to TMZ, Khloé welcomed her daughter at a hospital just outside of Cleveland — where the 33-year-old reality star’s boyfriend plays for the Cavaliers — early Thursday, April 12.
Despite the recent cheating scandal, Tristan was also reportedly present for the birth.
The newborn does now have a name yet, the website reports.
Journey to Motherhood
As fans know, it was a long journey to motherhood for Revenge Body host. Khloé previously tried to get pregnant while married to Lamar Odom, but gave up on IVF treatments before splitting with the former NBA star.
She touched on her long-standing desires to start a family when she announced her pregnancy last December, writing on Instagram:
“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!
Starting a Family
The revelation came after months of pregnancy speculations. According to the Good American denim designer, she kept quiet about the baby news because she and Tristan, 27, “wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately.”
“Thank you all for understanding,” she told fans. “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!”
