Rob Kardashian has seemingly confirmed he has a son.
The 27-year-old reality TV star has taken time away from the spotlight lately, apparently as he tries to lose weight and focus on his career.
However, he has thrust his personal life back to the fore with a message on Twitter which he wrote late on Thursday evening US time.
“Happy I got my Son with me for the 4th tomorrow !! Can’t wait to watch fireworks with my little man ! Hope everyone is safe ! X (sic),” he wrote, in reference to the American July 4 holiday.
The star hasn’t given any more details about the tot, such as how old he is or whether he is in a relationship with his mother.
It’s not the first time the sock designer has alluded to being a father on social networking sites. On June 20 he posted a sweet message apparently to the mom of his child, although at the time it largely flew under the radar.
“And to my baby mama I loveeeeeeee you (sic),” he put on Twitter.
Both these messages are still available to read on Rob’s social networking page.
The reality TV star has been at the center of a baby riddle in the past, although it’s always been presumed he wasn’t actually a father. That’s because although he posted a message about a son on Instagram in May last year, he quickly deleted it.
“Shout out to God, shout out to my hair. Shout out Mom, shout out to my Son’s mom cuz she been holding me down since high school n Shout out to my Son Robert the Third (sic),” it read.
He was referring to the child as far back as 2009, bringing the boy up in a discussion with Nicole Richie on Twitter.
“@nicolerichie My Son unfortuntely doesn’t stay in LA. You know that. Don’t remind me. (sic),” he wrote, in another message which was quickly deleted.
Rob isn’t the only member of the Kardashian clan with kids on the brain. In a newly-released excerpt from an upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians Kim is seen telling her family she is sure she and her now-husband Kanye West will have a sibling for their one-year-old daughter North before long.
“[My psychic said] I’m going to get pregnant really soon,” she is seen telling Rob and their sibling Khloé, before adding to her sister: “She said you should get a sperm donor and the guy will come later.”
