Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have confirmed they are expecting a child together. The 29-year-old sock entrepreneur confirmed the news on Instagram with a pregnant Chyna emoji, while his 27-year-old fiancé also went public with her baby news on Friday (May 6) via Instagram, captioning an image of an emoji of herself with a baby bump.

The couple, who went public with their relationship in January, have been described as inseparable ever since after a whirlwind romance. As Rob struggled with complications from his recent weight gain, with Chyna's support he has lost 70pounds and having been estranged from his family, he has in recent weeks reached out to them, looking happier than ever.

The pair recently announced they were engaged, after Kardashian proposed with a 7-carat engagement ring. "They want to get married toward the end of the summer," the insider told Us. "Somewhere warm."

The pair were recently spotted at a gynaecology appointment in March fueling baby rumours. Accordin gto Us Weekly, sources close to both Chyna and Rob claim Chyna is several months along. It's the second child for Chyna, who has a 3-year-old son named King Cairo with her ex-fiancé and Kylie Jenner's boyfriend Tyga.

The parents-to-be are said to be "super-excited" as they anticipate the new arrival. Chyna's representative confirmed to Us Weekly. "She's very happy."

Rob's sister Kim Kardashian-West was one of the first of the Kardashian clan to send her good wishes as she 'liked' the Instagram image. Tyga also sent his well wishes, writing "Congratulations" under Chyna's announcement.

While the romance was initially met with cynicism from his sisters, the family appears to have come around to the idea that Blac Chyna is going to be a permanent fixture in the Kardashian fold. Chyna and Kylie recently posed for a selfie together putting an end to rumours that the pair are at war.

Meanwhile, social media went into overdrive at the announcement with fans of the couple sending their messages of congratulations, while others couldn't help but point out the very complicated family ties that result from the new addition and the reaction of grandmother-to-be Kris Jenner.
