There’s a new Kardashian baby girl on the way. Rob Kardashian, 29, and Blac Chyna, 28, announced the gender of their baby during the premiere episode of their new reality show “Rob & Chyna” on Sunday.

Just before the gender was revealed, Rob expressed that he was hoping for a boy.

“It’s an emotional moment. Me wanting to have a boy, it definitely stems from my dad,” the dad-to-be said on the show. “But I’m sure I’ll have the same relationship that I had with my father with my daughter.”

“I’m just happy that the baby’s healthy and I’m gonna be super happy with a girl,” he added.

Rob’s 60-year-old mother, Kris Jenner, and her sister Kim Kardashian congratulated the couple via Twitter while the show aired.

“Congrats @robkardashian & @BLACCHYNA on your baby girl!!!!!!” the 35-year-old “Selfish” author tweeted on Sunday. “A girl!!!!!!!!!! how cute is she going to be!!!!!!!”

“IT’S A GIRL! So happy for Rob and Chyna! Can’t wait to welcome this new little love bug to the world. #RobandChyna,” Kris wrote.

Khloe Kardashian, 32, who was not always in good terms with Chyna, also gave a shout-out to the couple.

“So excited to welcome another little princess to our family,” she tweeted. “Congrats Rob & Chyna! I love you both!”

On Tuesday, Chyna took to Instagram to share the first sonogram of their daughter.

“@robkardashian and I can’t wait to meet our baby girl,” Chyna captioned the photo.

During a Facebook Live session last month, one fan asked the couple if they will “carry on the tradition of K names” in his family. Both of them answered, “Probably not.”

News of the Chyna’s pregnancy first surfaced in July. The model already has a three-year-old son, King Cairo, with ex Tyga. The rapper is currently dating Rob’s younger sister, Kylie Jenner.
