Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with Tristan Thompson’s baby.
The reality star, 33, is said to be ‘four months along’ with the 26-year-old basketball player’s second child, with multiple sources confirming the happy news to UsWeekly, People and TMZ.
Khloe’s reported pregnancy makes her the third member of the Kardashian-Jenner family to be expecting a child; younger sister Kylie Jenner, 20, is said to be expecting rapper Travis Scott’s baby.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian, 36, and rapper husband Kanye West, 40, are said to be expecting a baby girl via surrogate in January.

Both Khloe and Kylie are reported to be due to give birth in February.
‘They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters,’ a source told
Earlier on Tuesday, an insider told People after the news broke that both Khloe and Tristan are ‘absolutely thrilled’ that they’re going to be parents.
‘This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle,’ the insider explained.
People’s source went on: ‘This is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.’
Khloe revealed on KUWTK earlier this year that she had fertility issues and her Beverly Hills doctor suggested she have children sooner rather than later.
And the star has said she wants many children, just like her mother Kris Jenner did, so she had to get started soon.
Khloe was last seen on social media showing off her abs in a lingerie photo.
Tristan already has a baby named Prince with his ex Jordan Craig.
Khloe has said that she is very happy with her beau, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
‘My boyfriend is very protective of me,’ she told You magazine recently.
‘Feeling loved and validated and secure is a huge thing. Tristan is protective of my entire family, which is beautiful.
‘And I love that everything we do is as a union. When he speaks, it’s “us” and “we,” and that’s important because it shows that you’re sharing life.’
And she has said on KUWTK: ‘He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that’s lovely.
‘We could start at one and then grow from there.
The couple began dating in September 2016 after meeting on a blind date set up by one of her friends.
‘I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way,’ she told You.
Khloe previously revealed on her family’s TV show that Lamar Odom had been keen to have children with her when they were married.
The reality star and the LA Lakers player, who already had two children from a previous relationship, married in 2009 after just one month of dating.
They broke up in 2013 over the athlete’s drug use and infidelities. But Khloe put their divorce on hold after Lamar overdosed at a Nevada brothel in October 2015 and managed his medical care and recovery. Their divorce was finalized in December 2016.
In season 13 of KUWTK she admitted she had ‘fake tried’ to get pregnant wiht Lamar, explaining: ‘I knew that it wasn’t the right situation to bring a child into and I think I’ve done a lot of covering up for him, like even when it made me look like I was the problem.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Khloe was trolled on Twitter by critics who accused the gym fanatic of hiding weight gain with baggy clothing.
It came after pictures were published showing her out and about on September 16 wearing a loose sweat shirt over sweatpants.
The 33-year-old 33, slammed ‘rude’ body-shamers via her Twitter , writing: ‘So rude of people to say I’m getting fat because I wore baggy clothes to get laser hair removal.’
‘It’s called being comfortable people,’ the Good American fashionista said in closing on the Twitter post.
On the season finale of KUWTK in June, Khloe was seen visiting fertility specialist Dr. Andy Huang to get an ultrasound of her uterus.
It was partly because big sister Kim was begging her to be a surrogate for her and Kanye West’s third baby.
The exam, however, revealed she had fewer follicles that hold eggs than the average woman her age, promoting her to worry about whether or not she would ever be able to have a child of her own.
But on the doctor’s advice, she ditched her contraceptive pills and the follicles returned to normal.
The experience seemed to convince her that she did indeed want to start a family of her own.
When the doctor warned her that she was about to be her most fertile in a planned week-long stay with Tristan, sister Kourtney teased her by asking ‘why not try?’ to get pregnant — a question that appeared to light up her face.
Twitter naturally responded to the news of Khloe’s pregnancy with a mix of memes, conspiracy theories and witty observations.
‘Working theory: Khloe and Kylie are BOTH Kim’s surrogates. Kim is just collecting babies,’ one user tweeted.
