Basketball professional Kris Humphries' former girlfriend, Myla Sinanaj, is reportedly pregnant with his first child. A report in TMZ says Sinanaj has told close associates she was three months pregnant with the child and Humphries knew nothing about it.

Humphries is presently in the middle of a bitter divorce battle with ex-wife Kim Kardashian. The Humphries-Kardashian marriage lasted only 72 days and the basketball star dated Sinanaj for a few months after the split. The brunette has posted Tweets on social net working Web site Twitter, suggesting she is expecting a son.

"I can't wait to have a little boy lol sounds corny but a lil me running around dressed like his daddy? Too cute," Sinanaj tweeted.

As joyous as the news may be for Sinanaj, it is likely to be a problem for Humphries, given he has claimed emotional damage after the break-up with Kardashian. The TMZ report claims Sinanaj (who observers have noted resembles Kardashian) plans to raise the child as single mother; she believes Humphries has betrayed her by denying their five-month relationship.

"Kris' deposition is going very well, and he is holding his own," an insider told Radar Online recently, when asked about the divorce, "He isn't getting rattled or upset by the line of questioning from Kim's lawyer."

"There has been a lot of emphasis on his relationship with Myla Sinanaj, or lack thereof. Kris maintains that it was never an exclusive relationship, and even if it was, it doesn't take away from his claim that his marriage to Kim was fraudulent and he got duped into it," the source added, admitting Humphries and Sinanaj have been in regular contact in recent weeks.

An earlier report suggested Humphries told Sinanaj about his relationship with Kardashian and claimed he "knew" Kardashian "cheated" with on him with new boyfriend Kanye West, when the rapper failed to make their wedding guest list. Humphries also told Sinanaj that Kardashian's mother, Kris Jenner, advised her to make a sex tape with singer Ray-J - which paved Kardashian and eventually her family's way to popularity, according to a report in TMZ.
