Some eagle-eyed followers have even questioned whether the couple may also be engaged, as Khloe is sporting a dazzling diamond band on her ring finger in the image.

They’re not the only members of the family that is set to welcome a new addition in the coming months – Khloe’s sister Kim and her husband Kanye West have revealed that they’ll be having their third child via surrogate, a sibling for North, four, and Saint, two.

Speculation is also rife that the youngest member of the clan, Kylie Jenner, is pregnant with her first child, although she had yet to comment on the matter publicly.
