Rob, who had been struggling with his weight and related health conditions, had gone into hiding for a while and was largely estranged from his family, and while Kim questioned his lack of loyalty, the family acknowledged that Chyna had played a role in bringing him back from the brink of despair.

Kim, who was one of the first of the Kardashian clan to send her good wishes to the couple, insists that the family have got over their initial apprehensions about the relationship and are now eagerly anticipating the new arrival to the Kardashian clan. "Everyone is doing really great. Everyone is super excited," she said Mail Online reports.

Meanwhile, Chyna's best friend Amber Rose has denied suggestions that they are putting on a showmance, adding that they are "deeply in love." "She's ecstatic," she explained. "She's pregnant and she's with a man that they're both deeply in love with each other. To be happy and in love and having a baby and getting married. It's a great situation to be in."
