It was just reported that 33-year-old Khloé Kardashian is pregnant with her first child! On Wednesday, Dec. 20, Kardashian shared a sweet pic on her Instagram account confirming the much-speculated news, writing “My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along.”

“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!!!”

Kardashian and 26-year-old boyfriend, basketball player Tristan Thompson, are welcoming a baby boy early next year according to People, yet the couple haven’t confirmed that detail themselves—yet.  The lovebirds have been dating since last year, and honestly, they are SO stoked.

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!

While Kardashian’s baby news is super exciting, we are still waiting on lil’ sis Kylie Jenner, 20, to confirm she’s pregnant with BF rapper Travis Scott (but she totes is, IMO). Earlier this month, People confirmed that 36-year-old Kim Kardashian West and hubby Kanye West have hired a surrogate to carry their third child. This means THREE new Kardashian kids just might be on the way! Kan You Keep Up????

While we anxiously await for baby KoKo to arrive, here’s everything we know about her boo and father-to-be, Thompson.

He met Khloé on a blind date

Thompson was set up with the reality star through mutual friends. “I was put on a blind date with Tristan,” Kardashian recently told Ryan Seacrest. “Brandon Jennings, who’s a basketball player, he’s a friend of mine and Malika’s, and he’s like, ‘You’re such a good girl, I want to introduce you to someone.’ I was at the Bel-Air Hotel. He came to the dinner, cause I didn’t want to go on a blind date, so Brandon kind of ambushed the blind date. So I had a bunch of people, and he brought him, and we just connected.”

While the official timeline is fuzzy, they’ve been together since at least September 2016.

He’s Canadian

Much like Drake, Thompson is originally from Toronto. Which means… there just might be a half-Canadian Kardashian!!!!! Also, he eats at Tim Horton’s just like the rest of us, so we’re assuming he’s #humble.

I saw Sidney Crosby brought the Stanley Cup to @timhortons so only right I brought Larry!! #timhortons

He is #sporty

Thompson has been playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers since 2011, and is reportedly the highest-drafted Canadian in the NBA. This means both he and Khloé both make some pretty serious cash, as demonstrated by their mutual love of fur coats.

He’s already a dad

Back in December, Thompson welcomed his first child, son Prince Oliver, who he had with his ex-GF, model Jordan Craig. Since baby PC (nicknamed coined RN) is soooo freakin’ cute, we can’t wait to see how adorable Thompson’s second child will be.

He has a big heart

Thompson has a little brother who has epilepsy, so the basketball player started the Amari Thompson Foundation to raise funds for Epilepsy Toronto.

“My brother having epilepsy and seeing what he goes through and hearing the stories of other families and what they got through really touches my heart, it motivates me,” he told the Toronto Star in 2015. “I try to do everything I can to raise money and awareness with my voice and my name.”

He’s stylish AF

When he’s not on the court, Thompson rocks some serious styles. Whether he’s wearing trendy sneakers, a Chanel sweater, or one of his aforementioned furs, he legit looks like he walked off the set of a fashion shoot (and sometimes he has).

Always special playing at the Garden.. You know me and @kingjames had to bring fashion week to the arena

He’s a family man

The athlete loooooves his fam, and they often make appearances on his Instagram account. While his young son stays out of the public eye, his siblings and mom often get shout-outs. Plus, Kris Jenner apparently adores him. D’awwww.
