It's official: There's going to be another Kardashian family member to keep up with very soon. On Wednesday, Khloé Kardashian confirmed she's pregnant on Instagram with a sweet photo of her baby bump, writing, "My greatest dream realized!" Since fans have been waiting patiently the last two months for confirmation of whether or not she's having a child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, this was basically their dream scenario, too. That's why it didn't take long before fans on Twitter reacted to Khloé's baby news.
Most fans were quick to send their congratulations to the first time mom-to-be, but there were others that were a little more creative in their messages about the newest addition to the Kardashian family, which is ever-growing. So. Many. GIFs. Currently the family includes six grandchildren and counting with the news that Kim Kardashian is also expecting via surrogate. Not to mention, the rumors that little sister Kylie Jenner is pregnant, which could add another to the brood. (Kylie has yet to confirm the news.)
While the internet couldn't help giving their two cents about Khloé, she managed to stay mum — pun intended — about her big baby news over the past two months. That doesn't mean it was easy, though. Khloé spent a lot of time shutting down Instagram commenters who were claiming they had spotted a baby bump. Now that the news is out there, fans are joining her in celebrating with kinds words and even kinder GIFs.
1. The Award For "Best Mom" Goes To?
Well, this fan thinks it's definitely going to be Khloé and they couldn't help but post a photo of Kim crying her eyes out. Now, everyone's crying.
2. KUWTK Fans Just Want Her To Be Happy
One fan tweeted that "after watching so many Kardashian episodes when I was younger," they couldn't be happier to see Khloé finally get a chance to be a mother.
3. The Best Reason To Stop A Netflix Marathon
As one fan explained, Khloé's news was enough to make them pause The Crown for a few minutes.
4. This Is Not A Drill
Some fans had trouble staying calm, like the person who tweeted a GIF from The Office that pretty much summed up how most fans were feeling: "Oh my God. OK, it's happening!"
5. No One Can Hide Their Excitement
This Twitter user was having a full-on Rachel and Phoebe moment when she found out that Khloé was expecting and it's not how she expected she'd feel.
That's the answer everyone can now give that Khloé confirmed her pregnancy.
7. There's A Reason Fans Are So Happy For Khloé
Watching Khloé's fertility struggles on her reality show made this news even more exciting for anyone who watched KUWTK. "Those episodes where she spoke about watching on and supporting her sisters’ pregnancies while she couldn’t even have her own child," @PrincessCK_ tweeted, alongside a crying emoji and heart.
8. This News Feels Personal
As one fan tweeted, "I just told like 11 people that Khloe is pregnant as though it was my personal news to share." Same.
9. Khloé Just Made 2017 Better
It's been a rough year, but as it comes to a close, one fan noted that Khloé's good news might just mean 2018 isn't going to be so bad.
10. A Weight Has Been Lifted
Knowing the news, left one fan feeling more relaxed than they had in months.
11. On To The Next Kardashian/Jenner Baby
As excited as one fan was about Khloé's news they couldn't help but wonder whether sister, Kylie would share any news of her own. To do this, they shared a gif of Kim excitedly peeking out of the bushes. That's pretty savage.
12. It's The Kardashian's World & We're Just Living In It
One fan joked that with the way the Kardashian family is expanding, it's going to be "around longer than Morgan Freeman." A tweet that only gets better when you pretend it's being narrated by Morgan Freeman.
Although she's speaking out now, in October Khloé put a stop to fans who were claiming a photo of her wearing a leather mini-skirt meant she was with child. For these commenters, the proof was supposedly in Khloé's pose, which had her placing her arm across her stomach as if to hide something. As Elle pointed out, she was quick to leave a comment, writing, "this is a peplum shirt. It flairs out at the bottom. It's just the way the shirt is designed. In some of the next pictures coming up from the SAME shoot, I'm in a crop top."
It wasn't the first time Khloé had responded to the baby rumors. It's actually something she's been dealing with on and off for years now. In 2014, Khloé joked to People, “I feel like I’ve been pregnant for six years!” She laughed it off, but admitted that the constant pregnancy talk made her self-conscious about her body.
"I used to get offended, like, ‘Do I look fat today?’ or ‘Why are they saying that?’ But they just say it,” she told People, adding that she eventually had to just ignore the rumors. “I mean, one day the rumor will be true," she said then, "I hope, but who knows? Until then, it is what it is.”
Her mom, Kris Jenner, though, had a little more trouble keeping quiet. But, can you really blame her? Right before Thanksgiving, Jenner seemed to ruin the surprise with a holiday Instagram that appeared to confirm Khloé's pregnancy. She shared a photo of children's pajamas, writing, "Thank you for a collection for every one of my grandchildren." The photo features nine pairs of holiday PJs, but Jenner is currently only a grandma to six. Kim has another on the way, but that still leaves two additional pairs.
Either way, the cat's out of the bag about Khloé's bun in the oven. Now, Kardashian fans will have to anxiously wait and see whether Kylie will be making an announcement of her own soon. No doubt, Twitter will be ready to share its feelings when (or if) that time comes.
