For Khloe Kardashian, the sound of a baby crying will soon take over her life.
As previously reported, the reality star is pregnant with her first child and will be welcoming a boy or girl into the world in early 2018.
In response, the Internet has been filled with numerous reactions and questions. To wit:
Wait, Khloe AND Kylie Jenner are pregnant?!?
Yay for Khloe! She's always wanted a baby!
Will this be another Kardashian-Jenner child born out of wedlock?
Indeed, for whatever reason, having kids outside of marriage is simply what members of this family do. Consider:
- Kourtney Kardashian has three children, yet has never exchanged vows with Scott Disick.
- Kim Kardashian got pregnant before Kanye West ever proposed.
- Rob Kardashian had a daughter late last year with Blac Chyna, only to split from his non-wife shortly afterward.
- Kylie is now expecting a kid with Travis Scott, who she's only been dating for a few months and who sources say she has no plans to marry.
But what about Khloe? She and Thompson are clearly in love and very serious and have supposedly discussed the prospect of marriage.
Now would be a pretty appropriate time for Thompson to put a ring on it, right?
Kardashian has said in the past that she'd accept a proposal from the Cleveland Cavaliers star, but insiders tell Us Weekly that there's no added pressure simply because she's pregnant.
"Khloe hasn’t typically cared about getting married before having a baby," this source tells the tabloid, adding:
"She’s open to it but it’s not a prerequisite, to be married, before having kids."
That's clearly the philosophy that all of Khloe's siblings share as well.
Back in April, Khloe once again reiterated her desire to start a family, telling ES Magazine:
"I definitely want to be a mom, but I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, ‘The clock is ticking.’ I feel in my soul it will happen."
And now she feels it in her womb, too!
Kardashian had previously thought about having children with ex-husband Lamar Odom, but realized not long into her marriage that the situation would not have been healthy, considering Odom's drug addiction.
She then dated James Harden and French Montana, but never felt passionately enough about either to make them the father of her first child.
But Thompson? Kardashian has been smitten for close to a year now.
The NBA power forward actually welcomed his first child into the world this past December, via an ex-girlfriend he allegedly dumped for Khloe.
It doesn't sound like wedding bells will ring any time soon for the couple, but whatever.
If they're happy, who are we to judge?
