Andrew penned: ‘It’s a little …BABY BOY!!!! This was the happiest, most magical moment for us so far!’

After announcing the ‘magical’ news, Kendall told how she is ‘high risk’ for having a baby early due to medical reasons and revealed she has experienced terrible morning sickness.

In a Q&A on her Story, one fan asked her how far along she was exactly and she responded: ‘I’m not going to say exactly how far along I am for a couple of reasons.

‘People get so fixated on the date, for medical reasons because I have in the past had a few treatments and operations which can make me high risk for having a baby early.

‘Fingers crossed everything is going to be alright and I can carry to full term, that’s the dream. I’ve done four months.’

She added of her sickness in the first trimester: ‘I did not know your sickness could get that bad that you just want to give up and just lay on the sofa and cry.

‘The sickness – I’ll actually go more in depth on my TikTok… I’ve heard the mum brigade is really bad on Instagram.’

Her caption read: ‘I am still being sick now! But I’m taking only being sick once a day now.’

‘For the first three months, sick at least five/six times a day on average, couldn’t keep anything down.’

She went on to say that they didn’t tell anyone their pregnancy news for a while and had it as their ‘little secret’ before firstly telling her sister when she reached nine weeks.

Kendall explained how they kept it all between just them too ‘for so many reasons’.
