Malika Haqq is choosing not to share the identity of her baby on the way‘s father just yet.

“I’m leaving him out of this, just for now,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 36, tells PEOPLE. “This is all me.”

Last week, PEOPLE exclusively confirmed that Haqq is expecting her first child and is due in March.

The Good American model says that she will “absolutely” address the identity of her little one’s father eventually, explaining, “My baby was made in love and that is something that will unfold at a later date.”

“We’re both very happy,” she adds.

The reality star has also learned the sex of her baby on the way, but is choosing to keep that information under wraps “for a little bit longer.”

“I listen to my heart, and I’ve decided that the rest of my life will be the best of my life. I’m pregnant!” she wrote on Instagram last week. “I didn’t know when, I just knew one day. God said it’s my turn, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the little spirit that grows inside of me. I am yours, baby, and you are mine.”

On Monday, Haqq showed off her baby bump for the first time in a photo shoot alongside her twin sister Khadijah Haqq McCray, who placed her hand on Haqq’s stomach for the sweet shots.

“I’m counting steps, reading, praying, planning, looking like I ate too much … And she’s with me everyday because @foreverkhadijah LOVES it. But I love her so much more,” Haqq captioned a sweet image of the two.

After the pregnancy announcement, Haqq’s best friend Khloé Kardashian congratulated the mom-to-be with a sweet note on social media. “My baby is having a baby!! I am literally so so so excited!! Congratulations Mika!! I love you!!” wrote Kardashian, who’s mom to 17-month-old daughter True.

In addition to Kardashian’s celebratory messages, many others left heartfelt comments for Haqq — like Kendall Jenner, who posted red emoji hearts in the comments section while Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson wrote, “Congrats Malika 🙌🏾 Blessings on blessings.”
