During a recent interview on ABC’s The View, Kardashian opened up about her relationship with West, and revealed her desire to have children.

“At the space that I am in life now, kids is definitely something that I want. I think I wanted that before and I think I, you know, I fell in love so quickly and wanted that to be my life so badly, but I just didn’t take the time to find someone,” Kardashian said.

According to E! News, Kardashian is about 12 weeks pregnant.
