One day prior, Rob Kardashian posted a photo of Blac Chyna showing off her baby bump, along with the caption, “My babies so pretty.”
During an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians years ago, Rob Kardashian was said to have put on more than 100 pounds during his struggles with depression, but since he began dating Blac Chyna, he appears to have turned over a new leaf. Not only does the reality star appear to be happier than ever with his new partner, he’s been getting health and dropping weight ever since their relationship began. In fact, up until Blac Chyna announced her pregnancy, she and Rob Kardashian were working out together — and eating a very healthy diet.
In April, Rob Kardashian shocked fans when, in the midst of his family feud, he announced his engagement to Blac Chyna and confirmed her pregnancy shortly thereafter. Because of Blac Chyna’s longstanding issues with Kylie Jenner, who began dating her ex-fiance, Tyga, shortly after their split, she’s been involved in frequent Twitter spats with the family. So, when news broke of their engagement and pregnancy, many were taken aback — especially Rob Kardashian’s sisters.
As fans recently saw on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, many of the Kardashian women have been completely mortified by Rob Kardashian’s relationship with Blac Chyna and feel that he is disloyal to their family. They’ve even encouraged Kris Jenner to intervene. However, months after the announcement, the family appears to be doing what they can to get to a better place.
Rob Kardashian “always wanted to be a dad,” a family source revealed to People Magazine in May. “Rob was very close to his dad and lost him at a young age. He’s never felt like he had a real father figure. He’s always wanted to give that to his own kids. He’s really a loving guy and will give a lot to his children.”
“The family found out in the last couple weeks. [Rob Kardashian] told everyone separately. They didn’t have a big family meeting or anything like that,” a separate source explained. “When Rob started dating [Chyna], it was like, ‘Okay, this is a phase.’ And when they were talking about the engagement, it’s like, ‘But it won’t last.’ But now that there’s a baby coming, everyone in the family knows that this relationship has permanence. Even if it doesn’t work out, they’re going to be co-parents of this child forever.”

According to the People Magazine report, Rob Kardashian’s mom wasn’t thrilled with the news of his engagement and baby plans with Blac Chyna and felt they were moving shockingly fast. Still, because she loves her son and wants him to be happy, she’s made an effort to come to terms with the idea and welcome their new child into the family.
