It’s official—Khloe Kardashian is having a baby.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was rumored to be pregnant as far back as September, but she confirmed the news in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

“My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!” Kardashian, 33, wrote.

Kardashian’s boyfriend of more than a year, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson, is the father. In her announcement, she thanked him for his love and support.

She also thanked her fans—many of whom speculated about her pregnancy based on her Halloween costume—for their patience. Kardashian, who will be a mother for the first time, explained she wanted to keep the news quiet “to enjoy our first precious moments just us.”

“I know we’ve been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately,” Kardashian wrote.

It looks like the Kardashian clan will really be swelling in the months to come. Khloe’s older sister, Kim Kardashian West, 37, reportedly hired a surrogate in the summer to carry her third baby with Kanye West. Rumors have circulated for months that the youngest of the sisters, 20-year-old Kylie Jenner, is pregnant, though she has not made an official announcement.

According to People, Khloe Kardashian is due to have her baby in early 2018.

“I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one!” she wrote. “But it’s the best bundle of feelings I’ve ever felt in my life!”
