Malika Haqq is going to be a mom!
Khloe Kardashian's longtime bestie announced that she is expecting her first child on Instagram Friday (September 27). "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 captioned a photo of her holding her positive pregnancy test. "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."
Malika also spoke with People about her pregnancy, telling the mag that she is currently 14 weeks along and is due in March. "I have always wanted to be a mother and it’s still a little bit surprising but I’m overjoyed!" the mom-to-be shared. "I’m a very emotional person anyway, but this is another heightening of emotion … I feel really good about where I am in my life being pregnant now."
The 36-year-old reality star didn't, however, name the father of her child. As fans know, Malika and her longtime boyfriend, O.T. Genasis, split over the summer.

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! 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. Thank you, @Clearblue for being a CLEAR and intricate part of the most important test result of my life. 2020 baby! #ClearblueConfirmed #ClearbluePartner
Malika, who is a twin, additionally detailed how when she went to an early ultrasound appointment and they detected two heartbeats. However, the doctor later confirmed that she was not having twins, there was just one baby, and the pulse was in both the fetus and umbilical cord due to their proximity — a moment that Malika admitted was quite relieving.
“I would love to have twins, just not my first pregnancy,” she said. “It would’ve been cute, but it was also nice to find out that the first one out is just a single.” And whether that "single" is a boy or girl is something the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star admitted she's keeping under wraps “for a little bit longer.”
“Learning the baby’s sex was a big deal for me and now I feel like I have time,” she shared. “I have time to think about nursery ideas, to think about a name. I’m just really enjoying now, getting to a point where I can celebrate being pregnant and [it] not being a secret."
