Now we know for sure, for reals, an actual thing you guys, that Khloe Kardashian is indeed pregnant.
After months (felt like years) of speculation, the reality star has finally confirmed she is expecting a baby with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, posting to Instagram a sweet and slightly sweaty shot of them cradling her baby bump.
The couple have been getting around for over a year now, and have charted their romance for us mere mortals along the way.
To celebrate we thought we’d chart the love story that is…so far.
August: Let’s take it back to the beginning.
So we now know the two were set up on a blind date by basketballer Brandon Jennings in August 2016.
33-year-old Khloe opened up on the 10th anniversary of her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she wasn’t too sure she wanted to go, so she had Brandon crash the date.
Little did she know…
Later on in the piece, she said: ‘Brandon Jennings, who is a basketball player, he is a friend of mine and Malika [Haqq]’s, and he was like, “You’re such a good girl, I want to introduce you to someone”.
‘I was at the Bel-Air hotel. [Tristan] came to the dinner because 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.’
September: First relationship rumour
The spark was ignited when TMZ first reported the pair were potentially an item, after they were spotted hanging out at a mansion in Beverly Hills together.
The same week they headed to Mexico for a steamy first vacation in the first week of September.
They also were spotted leaving L.A.’s Bootsy Bellows nightclub within minutes of each other.
What a week.
September…again: First social media…sort of
Someone filmed the pair locking lips, caught on camera at a nightclub. Potentially at Flo Rida’s aforementioned birthday.
They looked loved-up and pretty darn cute, but we still hadn’t had any concrete confirmation from anyone this was more than a fling.
September (third time’s a charm): First appearance
Then they made their first appearance as a couple at Flo Rida’s birthday party at LIV in Miami, Florida – while Tristan was introduced to the family at a Kanye West concert around the same time.
Kris Jenner was particularly sweet about it all as she said: ‘They are really cute.
‘You know, she’s having a good time. He seems like a really nice guy.’
October: His first social media post of the pair
It was also their first Halloween together, but that’s neither here nor there.
November: Khloe confirmed she splits her time between LA and Cleveland
November saw Khloe give a pretty big clue the two were gettin’ serious as she revealed to Jimmy Kimmel the frequency in which she is in Cleveland, where Tristan is based.
She said of her new second home: ‘I actually really like it.
‘I Like Having My Routine And Being A Little More Under The Radar.’
December: First Christmas
Only a couple of months after confirming they were together, they spent the holidays together as a bona fide couple and by now they were well into the social media love.
Tristan took to Instagram to post a pic in a carpark – the setting for all lasting love stories.
January: First New Year
This time it was Khloe’s time to shine as she posted a loved-up snap of herself smiling in her man’s arms, as he kissed her ear.
She said: ‘Happy New Year!!! May you always be surrounded by the love you are deserving of.
‘May Gods blessings continue to rain on us all!’
March: Introduction to Keeping Up With The Kardashians
In the new year we saw footage of the businesswoman introducing her famous family to Tristan after their earlier appearance at Kanye’s concert.
June: Khloe posts Polaroids from Tristan’s 26th birthday
Not ground-breaking, apart from the fact she captioned them with the tell-tale ‘Dad + Mom’ caption
That was bang-on six months ago, but there’s no real way Khloe would have known she was pregnant then.
Or maybe she did? Who are we to say she isn’t some grand prophecy-creator?
Still in June: Khloé talks about having kids with Tristan.
On the season-13 finale of KUWTK she said: they ‘definitely talk about starting a family.
Adding: ‘He wants to have, like, 5 or 6 kids with me, and that’s lovely…Now, knowing I’m not on birth control, it’s scary. That’s like a really big step.’
August: She opened up about marrying the basketball player, saying she was in the ‘best relationship she’s ever had’.
We repeat: the best relationship OF ALL TIME.
But she said Tristan didn’t need to put a ring on it.
She said: ‘I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way.
‘My boyfriend is very protective of me. Feeling loved and validated and secure is a huge thing. Tristan is protective of my entire family, which is beautiful.’
September 26: The pregnancy rumours begin
Rumours start swirling KoKo is up the duff, with KUWTK producer Jeff Jenkins congratulating her on the bundle-of-joy to be, before swiftly copping the wrath of the family.
October: She calls him Daddy…again
The two celebrate Halloween by dressing up as Game of Thrones’ Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen.
Most importantly, she called him Daddy in a Snapchat. Telling, telling (because then she most likely knew she was pregnant…)
December: THE ANNOUNCEMENT
The moment, ladies and gents, we were all waiting for. (Don’t lie, you were.)
After one year and three months of dating, moving in together, many, many social media posts and many months of pregnancy speculation, Khloe confirmed the two are expecting a baby.
Just as soon as they got over the excitement of the bump they noticed a sparkler on her ring finger prompting fans to believe she was also announcing an engagement.
Hold onto your horses, crew. Just let the baby announcement settle, pettles.
To be continued…

007 film must treat Bond girls properly, says Waller-Bridge

Fast cars, martinis and Bond girls are core parts of the formula for 007 films, but one of those elements is set for a change in the latest adventure.
Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is working on the script for the 25th Bond film, is on a mission to make sure the movie will "treat women properly" – even if the spy does not.
Ahead of the release of the as-yet-untitled film, Waller-Bridge told Deadline: "There's been a lot of talk about whether or not (the Bond franchise) is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women.
"I think that's b*******. I think he's absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow.
"It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly.
"He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to this character."
Waller-Bridge says she intends to ensure the female characters, including those played by Lashana Lynch, Lea Seydoux and Ana de Armas, feel "like real people ".

She added: "I just want to make sure that when they get those pages through, that Lashana, Lea and Ana open them and go, 'I can't wait to do that'.
Sir Elton hits out at Russia for ‘cruel’ Rocketman censorship

Sir Elton John has criticised Russian censors for cutting gay sex scenes from the hit musical biopic Rocketman.
The critically acclaimed film charts the British singer's rise to fame, and its scenes of kissing and sex between men, as well as drug use, contributed to it earning a 15 certificate in the UK.
But in a bid to play down the sexuality of Sir Elton, played by actor Taron Egerton, for a conservative Russian audience, an estimated five minutes of footage was reportedly removed ahead of its debut in Moscow.
The Moscow Times quoted a Russian film critic who had seen the film at its world premiere in Cannes on 16 May as saying "all scenes with kissing, sex and oral sex between men have been cut", as well as a photo displayed during the end credits featuring Sir Elton and his husband David Furnish.
Sir Elton, 72, a prominent gay rights campaigner, released a joint statement with the makers of the film to accuse censors of being "cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people".
"We reject in the strongest possible terms the decision to pander to local laws and censor Rocketman for the Russian market, a move we were unaware of until today," they said.
"That the local distributor has edited out certain scenes, denying the audience the opportunity to see the film as it was intended, is a sad reflection of the divided world we still live in and how it can still be so cruelly unaccepting of the love between two people.
