Ahead of Valentine’s Day, Khloe Kardashian revealed in a new blog post that she knew Tristan Thompson was “the one” very early on into their relationship. The pair, who’ve dated since August 2016, have taken their relationship slow, she explained, in part because she knew there was no need to rush.
“My answer for this probably doesn’t apply to everybody, but I knew Tristan was the one very quickly—I have never felt so comfortable or so safe with someone,” she wrote. “Because of that, I took it very slowly and was cautious about how I went about ‘us.’ I made sure we had very in-depth conversations. I wanted to make sure that those conversations were backed up by actions.”
“Tristan was so forthcoming with his life, as I was with mine,” she continued. “It was really reassuring to feel that someone had the same belief systems as I did. We spoke about religion, children and our families. I think all of those things are important to truly know the ins and outs of someone. It’s really easy to fall in love with someone during a honeymoon phase when you haven’t yet discussed the logistics of life. But you have to talk about the real things if you want a real/long-lasting relationship.”
Kardashian and Thompson, 26, are expecting their first child together this spring. The excited parents-to-be confirmed rumors about her pregnancy in December, with the reality star posting a poignant black-and-white photo to Instagram and thanking Thompson for treating her “like a queen.”
“You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned!” she wrote at the time. “I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!”
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! ❤️❤️❤️
Thompson returned the sentiments in a comment on the post, which eagle-eyed fans quickly pointed out and swooned over.
“Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey and entering your life that day at the bel air hotel,” he wrote. “One of the best moments in my life. I’m soo happy to be on this journey together with you and creating this angel from the man above. Everyday I give thanks to him for bring[ing] us together.
