Malika Haqq, Khloe Kardashian's long time best friend, is a soon-to-be mom expecting her first child. Haqq became pregnant with her then boyfriend, rapper O.T. Genasis, but the two split back in June of 2019. While the pair may no longer be a "romantic" item, Haqq recently opened up about their plans to raise their son to the best of their abilities as co-parents. Haqq took to Instagram to share the mature and heartfelt message to over 5 million followers.

Haqq wrote, "Relationships don't always work out the way we would hope but between love & friendship we have created a baby boy that will be here very soon...I've been single the last 8months but I am in no way alone. OT and I have attended every doctors apt and over all loved on our son together while anticipating his arrival."

While it may not be the most expected or conventional of relationships, Haqq's honesty and vulnerability serves as an inspiration to many former couples who have been forced to co-parent.

Haqq concluded her post by saying, "My priority over the past few months has been to nurture and protect my unborn child...Our baby would not be who he is without his father and I thank God for the spirit that grows inside of me. Only thing that matters, we are Baby Flores parents."

Luckily, Haqq has good company as she embraces the next chapter of her life. Her best friend Khloe Kardashian has also experienced the sometimes complicated journey of co-parenting.

Last year, Kardashian faced the very public and very humiliating cheating scandal between Tristan Thompson, the father of her only daughter True, and her friend, Jordyn Woods. Though the two faced many hiccups along the way, Kardashian and Thompson appear to have hit smooth sailing in their co-parenting.

When Haqq took to social media to announce her pregnancy back in September, Kardashian was one of her first supporters, showering her bestie with love and affirmation. Upon hearing of the news she cheered, "My baby is having a baby!!!!!!!"

While Haqq is beyond excited to become a new mother, the news did come as a bit of shock.

When making her announcement, Haqq said, "I listen to my heart, and I've decided that the rest of my life will be the best of my life. I'm pregnant! I didn't know when, I just knew one day. God said it's my turn, and I couldn't be more grateful for the little spirit that grows inside of me. I am yours, baby, and you are mine."

She later clarified that she had actually frozen her eggs, yet ended up not needing to use them being that she, "made a baby in love and those eggs weren't necessary. It's funny how you plan and then life happens."
