Tristan Thompson couldn’t be more excited for parenthood with Khloé Kardashian.
On Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers player opened up with a tribute on Instagram after his girlfriend announced she was expecting their first child.
“My love, thank you for [allowing] me to be a part of your journey in life and allowing to share this moment with you this is something [I’ll] always cherish. Girl you look better now,” he wrote in the comments section of Kardashian’s baby bump debut.
Rumors about the couple’s pregnancy have been swirling since September and were finally confirmed on Dec. 20 with a post on Kardashian’s Instagram page.
“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!” she wrote alongside a picture of her and boyfriend Tristan Thompson embracing her baby bump. “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!”
This is the first child for Kardashian and second for Thompson. He has a son, Prince Oliver, 1, with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig. The couple have not yet confirmed the sex of the baby, though it is rumored to be another boy.
Khloé isn’t the only sister in the Kardashian-Jenner family who is expecting in 2018. Big sister Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West confirmed they are expecting another girl via surrogate as early as January. Kardashian West accidentally spilled the beans about the sex of her baby on a November appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Kardashian West told DeGeneres that her daughter North West was really excited about all of the presents that came out of a baby shower thrown in the reality star’s honor, and she tried to convince her mom to let her keep some of the gifts.
“So, people brought toys and gifts, and [North] was opening them all up the next day,” Kardashian West said. “And she goes, ‘Mom, since Baby Sister’s not here, I think I need all of her toys in my room and play with them and make sure they’re all OK for Baby Sister.’”
She might have confirmed the newest bundle of joy in the West family is a girl, but she admitted that have yet to decide on her name. “We’re freaking out; we have no name,” she said at the time.
There is also a rumor swirling that Khloé and Kim’s half sister Kylie Jenner is expecting with her boyfriend, Travis Scott. Jenner has not yet confirmed the news, though sources say she is expecting a little girl.
