The Kardashian-Jenner family has not publicly congratulated Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna in the wake of their baby announcement, but it appears the surprise pregnancy has helped mend one strained relationship. It was reported that Rob and sister Khloé Kardashian were at odds over his whirlwind romance with Blac Chyna, but the two patched things up after she learned her brother was going to be a dad.
A source close to the family told Us Weekly that Rob and Khloé reached out to each other after he told his family the happy news. “Rob and Khloé spoke three weeks ago, and they worked things out,” the source said. “She’s happy for the baby.”
Khloé kicked Rob out of her home when she learned he was dating Blac Chyna. During a recent episode of the family’s reality-television show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” on the E network, the 31-year-old revealed she found out about the relationship when she came home early from a business trip to find Rob and Blac Chyna at her home, with alcohol bottles everywhere.
“The baby brought them together,” the source told Us Weekly. “Rob is having a baby, which is huge, and she needed to be there for him. It was the right thing to do.”
Rob, 29, and his fiancée, 27, revealed they were expecting by posting on Instagram an emoji of the model rubbing a large baby bump. Shortly after the image was posted, Blac Chyna’s ex, Tyga, wrote “congratulations” in the comments section. Tyga, who’s dating Kylie Jenner, split from Blac Chyna in August 2014. They have a 3-year-old son together named King Cairo.
According to E Online, Rob and Blac Chyna will welcome their little bundle of joy in the fall. A source said the couple already knows the sex of the baby and will “reveal it soon enough.”
Blac Chyna’s mom, Tokyo Toni, is definitely on board with the pregnancy and posted an Instagram video wishing her daughter and Rob the best. “I just got off the phone with my daughter, Blac Chyna, and soon-to-be son-in-law, Rob. Congratulations, guys ... I am superexcited for them, and I cannot wait for this new addition to the family,” she said. “As well, I would like to congratulate the other side of the family, which are the Kardashians and the Jenners. Congratulations, guys, we’re having a baby!”
