Every girl needs a BFF to grow up with, which is what reality star, Khloé Kardashian has always had with Malika Haqq. The two of them have been friends since before Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) premiered, and now Malika is about to give Khloé's daughter, True a brand new best friend, too.
Last week, Malika shocked everyone with the news that she's expecting her first baby which is due in March 2021. In an Instagram post, she held up a pregnancy test and told her followers, "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." The post was met with congratulations, cheers, and every single heart emoji available from her fans and followers.
Since Malika broke the news, Khloé also took to social media to share her excitement for her long-time BFF. Judging by the caption, it is clear that the reality star could hardly stand her excitement for the newest bundle of joy.
Unfortunately for everyone who is hungry for more information, Malika is staying tight-lipped on two very important pieces of the pregnancy puzzle: the baby's gender and the baby's dad. As far as the public knows, Malika is currently single and has been since she split with O.T. Genasis back in June. There's plenty of room to speculate but fans of KUWTK know that Kris Jenner is probably busy behind the scenes ensuring that the news doesn't come out until it's time to promote a new season of the show (say what you will about the momager, but she always knows how to market her girls).

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 has also shut down suspicion that she's pregnant with multiples. She's a twin, so it does run in the family, and when she went in for an ultrasound her doctors actually detected two heartbeats. After a little more evaluation, the doctor assured her that there is only one baby and that it was nestled up near its umbilical cord (which also has a pulse) which resulted in a false detection. Despite her love of being a twin, the mom-to-be is very relieved not to be raising them.
Malika told People that her sister, Khadijah Haqq McCray, is a mom of three and has plenty of advice to share. The mom-to-be is also relying on her own mom to help her stay calm and stress-free during pregnancy. And, of course, BFF Khloé (and the rest of the Kardashian sisters) is there to help guide her into motherhood as well.
Malika's baby will be here before she knows it, and she has plenty of support from family, friends, and her fans. It's only a matter of time before the world gets to watch her baby and True run around as second-generation BFFs. Kris is probably already busy pitching the spin-off series.
