Though there was a lot of speculation surrounding Khloé Kardashian's pregnancy since September, it wasn't until December that the reality star officially confirmed the news.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has now revealed why she waited so long to announce that she's expecting her first child with boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.
Why Did Khloé Wait To Reveal Baby News?
During a recent interview with ITV's Lorraine, the Kardashian sister said she waited to publicly announce her pregnancy because of miscarriage fears.
The 33-year-old noted that in her first trimester, her doctor told her to wait because the danger of miscarrying a child is very real. She added that she had no intention to keep her fans in the dark and was only following the doctor's advice.
"Honestly, at first it's not safe to say anything and the doctor was like, 'I would just want to wait, for you.' So I was listening to doctor's orders," Kardashian said. "And then people just become so obsessed. And I'm like, 'Trust me, you guys are all going to know eventually — I'm just waiting until it's the right time.'"
The Big Announcement
Kardashian announced that she and the Cleveland Cavaliers player were going to welcome their first child together on Dec. 20 along with a heartfelt note on Instagram.

She also pointed out that she was very relieved after the big announcement and could finally wear tight clothes. She had previously been wearing loose fitting and carried strategically placed handbags to conceal her belly.
A few days ago, Kardashian shared a photo of her growing baby bump on Instagram and also noted that she was 29 weeks along.
KoKo's sisters, Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian recently became mothers as well. Jenner announced the arrival of her beautiful baby daughter, named Stormi Webster, with rapper boyfriend Travis Scott last week. Meanwhile, Kim K and hubby Kanye West welcomed baby girl Chicago West via surrogate last month.
Is It A Boy Or A Girl?
Khloé has not yet revealed the gender of the baby. Last month, she told Ellen DeGeneres she did not know the gender of the baby.
However, she sparked speculation that she was expecting a girl after posting a Snapchat story from her dinner party.
Even though the soon-to-be-mother clarified that it was not her baby shower, pink seemed to be the theme of the party, leading many to believe that she and Thompson will soon welcome a daughter.
