On Wednesday, Dec. 20, something was confirmed that everyone already had long speculated: Khloe Kardashian is pregnant. The famed sister posted to Instagram a snapshot of her belly with her boyfriend Tristan Thompson's arms around her to spill the big secret. And, it's obvious from the photo that she's been waiting a little while to reveal the news. How far along is Khloe Kardashian? Her baby is certainly on its way!
Far be it for me to speculate on someone's belly size. Not all pregnancies are created equal and different women carry at different rates. But, from the photo she shared of just her stomach, Khloe is certainly aware that her body is going though some changes and she's thrilled. Her lengthy caption noted how excited she is to be a mom, how grateful she is for Thompson's support, and acknowledged that fans have been waiting a long time for this news.
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! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quite but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. 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! ❤️❤️❤️
Two of Khloe's comments in that caption hint at how soon her due date might be. The first is, "Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages!" which is a nod to Thompson. Now, this could hint that she's more than one stage into her pregnancy — so at least three months would put her beyond the first trimester. Since she said stages, plural, perhaps she's out of the first two trimesters and onto the third, which could make her up to six months pregnant. (According to Parents, that would make the baby as long as an ear of corn, so OK.)
The second clue comes here: "I know we've been keeping this quite [sic] but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us." The rumors about Khloe's pregnancy started way back in September, but it's clear that Khloe wasn't ready to announce her pregnancy to the world just then. It's completely up to her how much she wants to share about her budding family, and she obviously wanted to take her time.
All of this likely means that she's further along than most couples are when they announce a pregnancy. Most women wait until 12 weeks or three months, which means Khloe may be well past that. As for how far along she is exactly — well that's her private information. If she chooses to share that with fans, great. And, if not, that's totally OK.
