Malika Haqq has found herself a firm part of the Kardashian family, thanks to her long-standing friendship with best pal Khloe.
And in light of the reality dynasty’s baby news, the Dash Dolls star has exclusively told MailOnline that is ‘nice’ to see the Kardashian clan expanding.
Mother-of-two Kim is expecting her third child, a little girl, via surrogate, while swirling reports claim 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is expecting a baby and news Khloe has also fallen pregnant appears to have been ‘confirmed’.
The famous family recently celebrated 10 years of success since first launching their reality series Keeping Up With Their Kardashians and reflecting on their success, Malika revealed it is an ‘exciting’ time for herself and her close friends as they embark on a new chapter of their lives.
Reflecting on their success, she said: ‘They’re friends, but they are literally family to me. I am nothing but happy for their success, they’ve earned it. There’s not a lot people that can say they’ve done it… it’s an accolade they really deserve.’
When asked if it was nice to see the Kardashian empire constantly getting bigger, Malika responded: ‘Yes it is, they are very family-orientated.’
But keen not to give too much away when it comes to Khloe’s pregnancy news, the starlet, who is an ambassador for fashion brand to PrettyLittleThing, cryptically added: ‘Being close, I can say it, and it is a part of their life that they have allowed people into, you will continue to see the family dynamic grow.’
And while her best pal may be starting a family with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, Malika hinted that she isn’t yet ready to do the same.
Looking ahead, she told MailOnline: ‘All I can really truly look forward to is to continue to grow and eventually have the things that I desire when I’m ready for them – that would be a family of my own.
‘At the minute I’m happy, I’m successful, I work, I have great friends and a great family. I’m a happy girl.’
Malika’s comments come after Jeff Jenkins – who has worked on E! show Keeping Up With The Kardashians since its inception in 2007 – appeared to confirm Khloe’s baby news.
He had publicly congratulated the blonde beauty on Instagram, following reports surfacing claiming she is ‘four months along’ with her basketball player beau’s second child. Tristan already has a baby named Prince with his ex Jordan Craig.
Jeff had penned alongside a picture of Khloe and Tristan: ‘Congrats my beautiful Khloe! You will be a great mom! God bless you all three! Mwah!!!’
He tagged himself at Bunim/Murray Productions, the company behind Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Multiple sources are said to have confirmed Khloe’s pregnancy to Us Weekly and TMZ, with an insider telling People that the duo are ‘thrilled’ to be expecting.
MailOnline have contacted a representative for Khloe.
