Khloe Kardashian finally confirmed her pregnancy this week with a special baby bump photo, but was there a hidden message in the announcement? While everyone was distracted by the baby news, many fans did not notice that Khloe was wearing a huge diamond ring in the pic. Did Khloe and Tristan Thompson secretly get engaged?
Life & Style reports that Khloe was wearing two diamond bands in the pregnancy photo. Although the rings could be of the engagement variety, Khloe has worn them in the past. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wore the rings in support of Thompson when he played in the NBA Finals last year and has been spotted with them on several other occasions. This would seem to indicate that the ring is not a symbol of their engagement, though it is interesting that Khloe decided to wear it in the picture.
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 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! ❤️❤️❤️
Even if Khloe and Thompson aren’t engaged, they are clearly ready for the long haul. In addition to having a baby together, their comments towards each other on social media sound permanent.
Not only have they talked about the love they share but they have also hinted about wanting to be together for the foreseeable future. Between the pregnancy announcement and Khloe’s rings, one has to wonder if they may have already tied the knot.
While fans wait for a follow-up engagement announcement, Us Magazine reports that Khloe is still in shock that she’s having a baby. Shortly after the baby bump pic, Khloe took to Twitter to thank fans for their positive support and said she still can’t believe she’s about to have a family of her own.
The pregnancy rumors first surfaced back in September and sources now claim that Khloe and Thompson are planning on getting engaged. Khloe is just waiting for the perfect timing and doesn’t want to rush into marriage. Given how Khloe is getting ready to have her first child, an engagement probably won’t happen until sometime after the birth.
Shortly after Khloe posted her pregnancy pic on Instagram, Thompson chimed in on his feelings about becoming a dad. According to E! Online, Thompson thanked Khloe for letting him be a part of her life and said he will always cherish this moment. He also assured the reality star that she looks even better now that she’s expecting.
After his initial post, Thompson shared a lengthier tribute to his wife and soon-to-be child, saying that he is thrilled to become a father and that he loves Khloe unconditionally. The NBA star closed his message by thanking his friend Brandon Jennings for introducing them. They may not be engaged just yet, but the couple is clearly ready to take things to the next level.
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have not commented on the engagement rumors, though they are both clearly excited about having a baby. They also did not announce an official due date, though the pregnancy will likely be documented on the new season of KUWTK.
