Rob Kardashian and his fiancée Blac Chyna are expecting a baby boy, according to her father.
The couple – who got engaged in April after four months of dating – are thrilled to be having a child together, and the makeup artist’s dad Eric Holland claims he knows the gender of the unborn tot.
‘Rob and I have had some one-on-one time. All I can say is he’s excited about the prospect of a boy,’ Eric told Now magazine of the star and his daughter, whose real name is Angela Renée White.
‘For Angie, the most important thing is that the baby is healthy. They were really excited when it kicked for the first time. They’ve chosen a name but they’ve not told anyone what it is. They want to wait until the baby is born.’
And Eric thinks his daughter – who already has a three-year-old son, King Cairo, with her ex-boyfriend Tyga, who is dating Rob’s half-sister Kylie Jenner – and Rob will go on to have a big family.
He added: ‘I said to Rob, “I know you’re just going to keep going with Angie until you have more than one boy, right?” and he laughed. It wouldn’t surprise me if they went on to have four or more kids.
‘Some people say she’s using Rob as a stepping stone. I don’t think so. They’re great together and they’re right together. They love each other and that’s all that matters.’
While Chyna is giving in to her pregnancy cravings, Rob – who retreated from the public eye after his weight ballooned – is doing his best to stick to his diet.
‘Angie is loving steak and ice cream right now,’ said Eric. ‘It’s what she ate the whole time she was over here at the restaurants in Washington DC. Rob makes sure she gets what she wants – but not too much.
‘Rob is on a diet. At every meal Angie is telling him, “Rob you can’t eat that.” But he’s still a big guy. Losing weight is a tough thing. It’s great they’re looking out for each other.’
As Rob Kardashian and Chyna continue the countdown for the arrival of their first child together, the father-to-be appears to be relishing seeing his fiancée in all of her maternal glory.
On Monday evening, the once-reclusive reality star, 29, took to Instagram to share a shot of his 28-year-old belle proudly showing off her growing baby bump as he gushed over the love of his life.
‘My babies so pretty (sic),’ Rob wrote next to the snap, which showed Chyna wearing a lilac cropped hooded top and matching bottoms.
The couple are set to star in their own reality show together, entitled Rob & Chyna, which will air on E! and will chronicle them as they prepare for the birth of their baby and their wedding.
E! insiders expect the TV show to be ‘amazing’ because Rob isn’t afraid to speak his mind on any subject matter.
A source revealed: ‘The show is going to be amazing. Rob has no filter and he’s so upfront. It’s going to be great TV.’
Rob used to suffer from depression and refused to speak to friends and family, but his life has changed for the better since meeting Chyna and he is said to be ‘excited’ about his future with her.
The source said: ‘Rob is finally excited about life again, Chyna makes him so happy. It had been so long since Rob had smiled. Rob used to be such a goofy guy. Now that’s coming back. He has a reason to smile again.’
Chyna – who already has a three-year-old son, King Cairo, with ex-fiance Tyga – is enjoying a very full sex life with Rob as she waits to welcome her bundle of joy, according to BFF Amber Rose.
