Khloe Kardashian has put pregnancy rumours to bed by announcing that she is expecting her first baby.

She shared the news via Instagram, posting a black and white baby bump photo along with a lengthy comment thanking her partner, basketball player Tristan Thompson.

Acknowledging the weeks of fan speculation, the 33-year-old said the couple had wanted to enjoy the news with close friends and family “privately” at first.

She wrote: “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!
