The child will be Kardashian’s first and Thompson’s second. Kardashian and Thompson have been dating since 2016.
Rumors of Kardashian’s pregnancy emerged in September, but the couple had chosen to remain silent about it until Wednesday.
Kardashian later used Twitter to thank her well-wishers after receiving an outpouring of congratulations.
Thompson also chimed in with a heartfelt comment on Kardashian’s Instagram post.
“My love, thank you for (allowing) me to be part of your journey in life and allowing (me) to share this moment with you this is something and (I’ll) always cherish,” Thompson wrote, adding, “Girl you look better now.”
Kardashian and Thompson haven’t revealed the baby’s gender, but multiple sources claim they’re having a baby boy, according to PEOPLE’s Karen Mizoguchi.
