Last season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was all about Khloé Kardashian's BFF Malika Haqq trying to get to the bottom of what was going on with Tristan Thompson--but fans also picked up on another minor detail in one episode that had them scratching their heads. Does she have a boyfriend?
When Khloé and Malika were about to have a heart to heart about how Khloé feels about Tristan, the 36-year-old actress spoke on the phone with her boyfriend. The short scene was sweet, but it left fans confused. Many watching at home questioned who she was dating. And now, fans are wondering even more, as it was just announced on Sept. 27, 2019 that Malika is expecting her first child!

Malika dished to People, "I have always wanted to be a mother and it’s still a little bit surprising but I’m overjoyed!" The reality star would not disclose who the father was, so now we're all, of course, wondering if it's the same boyfriend she had in that Season 16 episode.

It's important to note that the episode in question was filmed around Dec. 2018, as it was at the time Khloé and Malika visited the Cleveland Botanical Garden, which KoKo posted on Instagram about on Dec. 11. At that time, Malika was in fact dating rapper O.T. Genasis. Both parties had shown off their relationship on social media, however, Malika's last post with him was in Jan. 2019, and O.T. Genasis' last Instagram photo with her was back in Oct. 2018.
Since neither parties have posted photos of one another in months, we can assume they've split since the KUWTK episode was filmed--but we can't be too sure. It's also important to note that neither stars are following each other on Instagram, although we don't know if they even were when they were an item.
According to HollywoodLife, Malika and O.T. Genasis went public with their relationship in Nov. 2017.
At the end of the day, if Malika wants to keep this part of her life private, then that's what it'll be! But we are so excited for her in this new chapter of life as she prepares to become a mother.
