Reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian is nine weeks pregnant with her second baby, she has revealed.
The 32-year-old and partner, Scott Disick, 28, already have a son, Mason,
who turns two on December 14.
"Scott and I are so excited to announce that we are expecting our second child and are thrilled to be expanding the love in our family," Kourtney told the celebrity news website, E!
The older sister of Kim and Khloé first revealed the news in this week's issue of US Weekly
. She told how she woke Scott up at seven o'clock after taking a positive pregnancy test to share the news.
She says she was so excited, she couldn't wait the traditional amount of time before sharing it with the world:
"Now I'm nine weeks along. You're supposed to wait 12 weeks
to tell people, but I feel confident."
In an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians in July, Kourtney was seen clashing with her mother, Kris Jenner after she mentioned that she and Scott were considering trying for another baby.
While their first child, Mason was a happy surprise, her mum insists the couple should be married before thinking about expanding their family.
The news may be greeted with mixed feelings by Kourtney's younger sister, Kim, 31, after she revealed
she fears she will never have a family following the separation from her husband, Kris Humphries earlier this month after being married for just 72 days.
Congratulations Kourtney and Scott!
