Rob Kardashian, Blac Chyna, Instagram, 600


Rob Kardashian is going to be a father.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is expecting a baby with fiancée Blac Chyna, and we actually can't think of a more doting daddy-to-be at the moment.

Rob and Blac, who's also mom to 3-year-old son King, have only been dating for about five months, but were on the fast track since day one, their social media postings suggesting a couple who bonded fast over life, love and, interestingly, working out.

They announced their engagement on April 5, Rob giving his girl a dazzling 7-carat diamond ring, and now they're having a baby!

Here are six reasons why Rob is ready for this major milestone and is going to make a wonderful dad:

1. He's head-over-heels in love

Never a bad way to start. Rob is nuts about Blac Chyna, the model and salon owner having proved to be just what the 29-year-old needed to snap out of the quarter-life crisis that had made him an object of concern for his whole family. And any child born into a home where there's so much love is a lucky child.

2. Rob knows what life feels like if your dad is no longer there

His namesake, Robert Kardashian Sr., passed away from cancer in 2003 when Rob was only 16—a most tender age for a boy who's just starting to figure out this whole manhood thing to lose his role model. The youngest of Robert and Kris Jenner's four kids together, Rob missed out on the most time with his father and that is only going to make him more fiercely devoted to his own child.

3. Behind every good man...

Rob has grown up with so many women in his life, he can't help but be extra tuned in to a girl's feelings and needs—whether he wanted to be or not! But that extra empathy will certainly come in handy once he has a mini-me to call his own, boy or girl.

4. Proud papa

We're getting a little lightheaded thinking about all the adorable Instagram pics in store.

5. He's had plenty of practice

Lest we forget, in addition to spending time with King, Rob grew up with little sisters Kendall and Kylie running around and is now an uncle of five kids between the ages of five months and 6. So he's already comfortable with kids, he's lived through the Terrible Twos (not in his own house, but it's no small feat regardless), and is adept at the incidentals such as remembering birthdays and picking out nice toys.

6. It takes a village

And Rob's got a village! The Kardashian family has graciously expanded over the years to welcome the kids' loved ones into the fold, and while Blac Chyna and Rob have largely kept to themselves, she has started to spend more time with Rob's sisters. And the addition of another grandbaby for Kris and a cousin for North, Saint, Mason, Penelope and Reign... there are just so many pairs of arms to go around, people are going to have to take a number to get their chance to hold this kid.
