Before Khloé Kardashian told her family about her pregnancy (as seen on this week’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians), the first-time mom-to-be shared the news with her love, Tristan Thompson. Now, in a new post on her website/app, she’s opening up about how she told him — and how he reacted.

The 33-year-old said that it was actually Thompson who first suspected that they were expecting, so she took a pregnancy test after he left for a trip to Toronto. When the test came back positive, he wasn’t even around to find out the exciting news. “I actually had to FaceTime him to tell him. I was nervous and he was so excited!” Kardashian wrote on her website. “Of course, it’s such a blessing and such an exciting thing — but I do believe your initial reaction is always nerves.”

Kardashian said that her bae, who’s already the father of a one-year-old son, Prince, whom he shares with his ex Jordan Craig, has helped her deal with “any fear or anxiety” that she has. “This process is trying — physically and mentally — but Tristan has made everything as easy and beautiful as it can be!” she wrote. “More than I could have imagined.”

Currently around six and a half months along in her pregnancy, Kardashian still has a little more time to prepare for the big arrival, and it sounds like she’s getting all the support she needs to make sure she’s ready to take on her new role.
