The Keeping Up with the Kardashians 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. “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.”
