Rob Kardashian is expecting his first child, but don’t expect him to be telling all along the way.
As he and Blac Chyna prepare for the birth of their baby, they are staying mum about the details of the pregnancy for the sake of their upcoming reality show, Rob & Chyna, which was confirmed earlier this month, following news of the pregnancy and the couple’s engagement.
“[Rob Kardashian] is still very excited about the baby,” a source close to Rob Kardashian told People Magazine on June 13. “When someone asks how Chyna and the baby are doing, he smiles and says, ‘great.’ They won’t share any details. They are saving it for their show. Even when friends ask, they refer to their show and say they will share it all on the show.”

E! News confirmed Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s new series on June 1, revealing the 6-episode series would chronicle the couple’s romance in one-hour episodes as their baby’s arrival nears. The outlet also confirmed the series would be followed up with a special celebrating the birth of the newest addition to the Kardashian family.
While a premiere date for Rob & Chyna has not yet been set, the People Magazine source claimed Rob Kardashian and his fiancee were excited to embark on a career of their own.
“Chyna would never accept money from Rob’s family,” said the source. “She always worked and wants to continue to find ways to make good money. She stopped doing club appearances now, so the money needs to come from somewhere else. Both Rob and Chyna are very excited about their show. They can’t wait to share everything with their fans.”
Rob Kardashian played a major role on Keeping Up With the Kardashians years ago, but in 2012, he quit his full-time role, choosing to stay away from the cameras and live a reclusive life in the home of his sister, Khloe Kardashian.

Although Rob Kardashian steered clear of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians cameras, and photographers in Los Angeles, for years, things changed after he met Blac Chyna and after shedding a ton of weight, he began appearing publicly once again.
While Rob Kardashian’s romance with Blac Chyna has been highly controversial due to her continuing issues with Kylie Jenner, who previously dated her ex-boyfriend, Tyga, the family appears to be on better terms now that he is preparing to settle down.
In another recent report, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna were said to be considering a second child following the birth of their first.
“Should everything go well with [Rob Kardashian] and Blac’s first pregnancy, they’re heading down the aisle and back to the bedroom to get it cracking. Rob wants more children. He wants to have at least as many children, if not more, than his late father,” a source told Hollywood Life on June 14.
“[Rob Kardashian] comes from a big family but for many of years of his life he felt exiled from them,” the source continued of the reality star’s desire to have a large family. “Part of the reason he wants a massive family of his own is so that he can not only spread a lot of love to Blac and their kids, including King, but also to feel loved by them. Blac’s down too. She and Rob are so much in love and on the same page when it comes to just about anything.”
