It's official! Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are expecting a baby!

After months of speculation, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star confirmed the pregnancy news with a poignant and sweet Instagram post on Wednesday.

The mom-to-be gushed over her impending "mommy" status and over her basketball-playing beau in the lengthy post.

And while the pregnancy reveal is big news, it shouldn't come as a big surprise to fans. E! News first reported that Khloe was having a child back in September, but the usually forthcoming E! star kept mum about being a mom.

In today's post, Khloe addressed her reasoning for being so secretive about the baby news in her Instagram post.

The expectant mom wrote, "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. To enjoy our first precious moments just us Thank you all for understanding."

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 quiet 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! ??????
