Keeping Up with Chyna Blac
After a whirlwind romance, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are expecting a baby together
There were rumours that she was going to change her name once they’d tied the knot so that she would have a greater claim to being an official Kardashian – but Blac Chyna has gone one step further. The former adult dancer has announced she is pregnant with Rob Kardashian’s baby.
A Child of Chyna
The model began dating the reality TV star in January and they stunned fans last month by announcing their engagement after a whirlwind romance. Last Friday, reports surfaced suggesting Chyna (real name Angela White) was expecting the couple’s first child together, and now the news has been made official. “I can confirm she’s pregnant and, of course, she’s happy,” her spokesperson told People.com. Shortly after the parents-to-be hinted the news was true by posting an animated image of Chyna bearing a bulging stomach on their Instagram accounts. In the accompanying caption, the music video model simply shared an emoji of a baby, while Rob, 29, also added a bride icon.
Mother’s Day Leak
Sources told TMZ the 28-year-old had been planning to make the announcement a few days later, on Sunday. “She would have preferred to have announced it on [America’s] Mother’s Day herself, but her hand was forced,” he said. Allegedly, the Kardashians leaked her story so she had to announce it. “The only people that knew from Chyna’s side was myself and Amber [Rose]. Her mother didn’t even know. [Chyna’s] moment was taken from her, which is really sad. It’s the business. There’s a TV show to promote.” The child will be Chyna’s second, she also shares three-year-old son King Cairo with her ex-fiancé, rapper Tyga, who is now in a relationship with Rob’s half-sister, Kylie Jenner. The Rack City hitmaker proved there were no hard feelings by congratulating his former partner on her engagement in early April, and on Friday afternoon, he took to Instagram to comment on his ex’s latest news. “Congratulations,” he posted, alongside a streamer emoji.
Sisters Suffer in Silence
Tyga and Chyna dated from late 2011 and they became engaged shortly after the birth of little King Cairo in October 2012. The couple split in 2014. The rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan has remained silent over the pregnancy shocker, which comes as Rob’s sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé enjoy a vacation in Cuba. Ironically, the news of the couple’s engagement also hit headlines while the rest of the family was on a break in Vail, Colorado. Meanwhile, the mum-to-be’s mother, Tokyo Toni, is cooing about the fact she’s set to be a grandma again. She posted on social media: “I just got off the phone with my daughter, Blac Chyna, and son-in-law-to-be Rob. Congratulations, guys. They told me ‘You’re about to be a grandma.’ I’m excited for them, and I cannot wait for this new addition to the family.” She later added: “As well, I’d like to congratulate the other side of the family, which are the Kardashians and the Jenners. Congratulations, guys, we’re having a baby.”
