    Khloé Kardashian made her first talk show debut since confirming her pregnancy.

    The pregnant Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star — who is expecting her first child with her NBA boyfriend Tristan Thompson — appeared on Ellen DeGeneres‘ daytime program, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, to talk about her baby on the way.

    “At the beginning, the first trimester is the worst and no one knows you’re pregnant yet and you feel the most uncomfortable,” Kardashian said about feeling ill during her pregnancy. “I think once people know you’re pregnant, you get all the excuses. Hopefully I look pregnant, not just fat. It’s hard for me to breathe right now.”

    Adding, “I’m gonna try to not wear maternity clothes as long as possible.”

    And being uncomfortable has nothing to do with wearing curve-hugging clothing.

    “The baby is on all my organs so I get out of breath just from walking,” she said.

    My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life! ❤️❤️❤️

    As for why she chose to announce the baby news on Instagram, Khloé told DeGeneres: “I just wanted to do something myself and write something that was heartfelt for me. I’ve wanted to have a baby for so long it’s just the perfect timing. God always has a plan and I just wanted to do it on my time and when I felt comfortable to do so.”

    Thompson is already a father to 1-year-old son Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.

    “[He’s] such a good dad,” Kardashian said of her boyfriend of over a year. “He’s so great just during pregnancy and he makes me more excited too. I’m excited.”

    Aww. And we’re excited for you, Khlo.
