    Khloé Kardashian and boyfriend Tristan Thompson won’t be kissing under the mistletoe come Christmas. The couple, who is expecting their first child together, will be spending the holiday apart due to Thompson’s basketball schedule.

    While they won’t be together on the actual day, they’re still planning on celebrating.

    ‘This Christmas, I’ll be celebrating early with Tristan in Cleveland since the Cavs will be on the road,’ she wrote on her app. ‘Then, I’ll fly back to LA a few days before my family’s annual Christmas Eve party. My mom takes full control of Christmas Eve since she’s been throwing the party for so long, so I let her do her thing!’

    Like her sister Kim Kardashian West, who revealed her Christmas plans yesterday, she’ll head to sister Kourtney Kardashian’s to open presents with all the kids.

    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! ❤️❤️❤️

    ‘On Christmas morning, the whole family is together with the little kids — usually at Kourt’s — opening presents and chilling in our pajamas,’ she continued. ‘After that, we’re all going to do our own thing the rest of the day. So, after I cook breakfast for everyone, I’m doing absolutely nothing and I’m very much looking forward to that, LOL!’

    While she may not be with her boyfriend on the holidays, chilling with her family and attending her mum’s epic Christmas Eve party sound like good substitutes.
