Last year was filled with celebrity baby news, with the Kardashian sisters shocking the entertainment world with news that three of them would be welcoming babies in 2018. Kim, Kylie, and Khloe have been the center of attention in Hollywood, with curious fans waiting impatiently to devour details about their baby daddies, their pregnancies, and their due dates.
Khloe, who has been dating Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Tristan Thompson for about a year, managed to keep her baby news quiet the longest. Perhaps the reason she didn’t blast the news is because her boyfriend only recently became a dad for the first time. He has a 9-month old son with his ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig. This basketball dad will have his hands pretty full of babies, soon! According to Khloe, Tristan is very family oriented, and would like to have five or six children. Well, he’s certainly well on his way to that goal!
Khloe famously shed quite a few pounds leading up to her pregnancy news going viral. Her newfound interest in fitness and health was the focal point of her reality TV show Revenge Body (which was met with more than some criticism due to its borderline body-shaming antics).
Nonetheless, it can’t be argued that Khloe has been looking great these days, and she has been stepping out in some pretty awesome outfits during her pregnancy. Here are 15 Fashion Photos Of Khloe Kardashian Rocking The Baby Bump In Style
15 She Has A Thing For Basketball Players
One thing’s for sure, Khloe Kardashian is into big, tall, handsome basketball players. She famously married troubled, retired basketball legend Lamar Odom in 2009. Their relationship was tumultuous and it ended in divorce, following Lamar’s very serious overdose which led him to be in a coma for several weeks. Khloe allegedly was set up with her current beau, Tristan Thompson, on a blind date that was organized by yet another basketball playing pal, Brandon Jennings. The pair hit it off immediately and Thompson appeared in several episodes of KUWTK during their courtship. The reality starlet and her 7-years-younger beau seem to be the real thing. They have gotten very serious since their August 2016 introduction and remind us all what relationship goals should look like!
14 She Hid The Pregnancy (And Bump!) For A Long Time
A recently slender Khloe managed to keep her pregnancy news-and body-on the lowdown for months. It’s common that first-time moms don’t pop out right away, so Khloe got away with hiding her mini bump under big sweaters and looser dresses. She might have been hiding morning sickness from the world, but her fashion sense sure didn’t suffer in the early months of her pregnancy! Every outfit that Khloe steps out in is so perfectly put together. She has really blossomed into a fashionista, whereas before she was usually known as the least fashionable Kardashian sister. Khloe has still not confirmed her due date publicly, but many estimate that she should be scheduled to give birth sometime in early March 2018. Kim just welcomed her third child, and there are still rumors going around about Kylie being pregnant.
13 She’s Always Wanted A Baby
Khloe has never hidden the fact that she’s wanted to have a large family of her own. The 33-year-old star was devastated when her marriage to Lamar Odom crumbled and her dreams of starting a family had to be temporarily put on the back-burner. Now, she is over the moon ecstatic about settling into a new chapter of her life. Motherhood will give her the chance to slow down and take a much-needed break from the spotlight. The star hasn’t had an opportunity to spend much time off-camera, so this new phase of life will be super important for her. Unless, of course, Kris Jenner decides to create a new show revolving around all of her newest grand-babies? Would anyone be surprised by that?
12 Caitlyn Will Not Have Contact With The New Baby
The relationship between the Kardashian girls and their former step-father, Caitlyn Jenner, has been pretty rocky for the past couple of years. Although Caitlyn and the girls originally tried to maintain a relationship, the tensions grew too high and the relationships eventually broke down. When Caitlyn published her memoir, some unkind things were said about the girls, and their mother, Kris Jenner. The Kardashian girls, not known to back down from a fight, defended themselves and their mother vehemently and swore off Caitlyn. In a recent interview with Piers Morgen, Caitlyn admitted that she has no contact with the Kardashian sisters, and only maintains relationships with her biological children, mothered by Kris Jenner.
11 She’s Panicking About Her Body
Even though Khloe is looking absolutely stunning during her pregnancy, she is already starting to panic about getting her body back to the shape it was in pre-pregnancy. She famously suffered from body-image issues her entire life and was very often the subject of cruel jokes regarding her weight. Her recent (somewhat obsessive) fixation on health and fitness has completely transformed her body. Despite what many see as a positive change and the embracing of a healthier lifestyle, Khloe is now obsessing over every pound gained during her pregnancy. She is worrying about all-too-normal side effects like stretch marks, a popped bellybutton, and bloating. Her recent weight gain has made her feel very self-conscious and she is looking forward to getting back to the gym once the baby arrives. Take your time, Khloe!
10 She Used Props To Disguise Her Bump
Like many celebrities before her, Khloe managed to keep her pregnancy news unconfirmed in the early months by covering up with a variety of fashion props. Baggy sweaters, belted jackets, and massive handbags were just some of the items she stepped into the hide her early bump. With no official confirmation or statement given until December 2017, when she was 6 months along. A self-proclaimed chatterbox, Khloe admitted that she shocked herself with her ability to keep the secret for so long. Keeping her personal life a little bit more private is a new concept for Khloe, who has spent the majority of her life on camera. This might actually be a nice change for the reality star, as she steps into a new phase of life with her baby and baby daddy.
9 She Wants To Marry Her Baby Daddy
Khloe’s already been married and divorced, but that isn’t getting in the way of her dream to marry her current boyfriend and baby daddy, Tristan Thompson. She had a very public relationship with basketball alum Lamar Odom, which ended in a divorce in 2016. The starlet has been famously unlucky in love, having to deal with men that were unfaithful, absent, or suffered from addictions. Khloe has said that she has never been in love the way she is now and that Tristan really is her dream man. She is envisioning a long and happy future alongside him, filled with many children and lots of joy. In fact, Khloe knew she wanted to be with Tristan for the long haul way before she found out she was pregnant. She started talking marriage in early 2017, just months after she started dating her Canadian beau.
8 Her Baby Will Have An Older Brother
Although Khloe and Tristan’s baby will be their first together, Tristan recently became a daddy for the first time. Before he got involved with Khloe, he was in a relationship with popular Instagram model and social media starlet Jordan Craig. The self-made girl boss gave birth to a son, Prince, on December 20, 2016, just three months after Khloe and Tristan started dating. Rumours, of course, immediately began to circulate that Thompson had dumped his pregnant girlfriend in order to date a celebrity, but not much is known about their breakup. The pair have managed to co-parent Prince all while keeping him out of the public eye, so that’s a good starting place! Despite the alleged good vibes between everyone, this is a very unconventional situation and one that might cause some drama down the line!
7 She Got Candid With Ellen
One of Khloe’s first candid interviews revolving around her baby news was with Ellen DeGeneres. At 6 months pregnant, Khloe looked white-hot and barely showed her growing baby bump as she answered questions. Khloe talked about how she has wanted a baby for the longest time, so this news has made her extremely happy and excited. She told Ellen that she didn’t yet know the baby’s gender, though she does want to find out. After keeping her pregnancy news so hush-hush for so long, Khloe can’t handle any more secrets or anticipation! She chose to make her official pregnancy statement on Instagram, which might seem a bit impersonal, but it’s actually quite fitting for a reality and social media queen!
6 She’s Trying To Keep Her Healthy Habits
For obvious reasons, pregnancy is a time when a woman will naturally slow down her regular activities. Khloe, who got pretty used to a vigorous workout routine, has had to slow down dramatically to allow her body to rest and grow her little baby. Despite a slowdown, she is still trying to keep up with her healthy habits. This is where dating an athlete comes in handy. Khloe often joins Tristan at the gym, and although her routine is far less vigorous than before, she is benefitting from some low-impact cardio and stretching routines. She’ll probably bounce back into her pre-pregnancy routine as soon as she gets the clear from her doctor to return to the gym! Once you have the workout bug, it’s hard to shake it!
5 Her Bump Made Its First Appearance On The Kardashian Christmas Special
Before Khloe had officially made her baby news known, there were speculations that she might be “with child”! What started as rumours soon became facts. One of Khloe’s earliest hints of a baby bump came on the Kardashian Christmas special, A Very Kardashian Holiday. The special, which was filmed in early November, offered some slight glimpses of Khloe’s teeny tiny baby bump, but it was enough to set the Internet on fire with speculations. According to sources, the rest of the Kardashian clan were already informed of Khloe’s pregnancy when the special was filmed, but were under strict orders to not mention it on TV. Kris almost let the cat out of the bag back in October, when she publicly said that she was “over the moon” for her daughter. These Kardashian’s are not known for their discretion!
4 She Doesn’t Know What To Name The Baby
Khloe Kardashian is well into her third trimester, but still has no idea what she will name her little baby. Kim and Kanye just shocked the world when they announced that they have named their third baby girl Chicago West (joining siblings North West and Saint West). Fans are so curious to find out if Khloe will follow in her sister’s footsteps and go down the unconventional name path. Or will she, perhaps, stick to something slightly more traditional? She has said that if the baby is a boy, she would probably name him Tristan Jr., but a girl name has not been picked out or decided on as of yet. The good news? Thompson is a very easy surname to match a first name to, so hopefully that makes her task a little bit less complex!
3 She Is Giving In To Her Pregnancy Craving
Even though Khloe is famously health conscious, and perhaps even a little obsessed, she has no power when it comes to pregnancy cravings! The star has admitted on her Twitter account that she has been subject to quite a sweet tooth in her third trimester, with her biggest weakness being cereal. Even though it’s totally normal to indulge in the occasional treat, Khloe has said that her mom, Kris, might be taking it a little bit overboard. She apparently brought 8 boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts to Khloe’s house when she knew that she was having sweet cravings. Everyone loves donuts, but that does seem a little bit over the top!
2 She Was Adorable At Kim’s Baby Shower
Before the news was officially released about Khloe’s pregnancy, she made an appearance at sister Kim’s baby shower, looking adorable and very much glowing. The November party had a romantic theme of tea and cherry blossoms, and guests seemed to enjoy the laidback energy and pretty petals. Khloe, dressed in a short, romantic dress, was able to conceal her very mini bump with no problems. At this point, she was aware of the pregnancy, but had not yet told her family and close friends. One thing is for sure, her baby will have no shortage of aunts, uncles, and cousins!
1 She’s Dating A Younger Man
Khloe has had her fair share of boyfriends, but most of them have been close to her age, or older. Ex-hubby Lamar Odom was 5 years her senior, while her current beau, and baby daddy, is 7 years younger than she is. It’s possible that her newfound confidence and rocking body have made her feel younger and hotter! After her breakup with Lamar, she was linked to Trey Songz, James Harden (another basketball player!), and Odell Beckham Jr. Although she’s recently said that she is in no rush to marry Tristan, her nearest and dearest would disagree. Khloe is totally smitten and in love, and would not hesitate to say yes if he were to pop the question. Only time will tell if this lady will walk down the aisle for the second time soon!
