"I just got the blood test back and I am pregnant!" Kardashian, 34, told her sister Khloe in a video clip for the television show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

This month, Kardashian told E! News about the couple's efforts to have another child.

"We are trying. We try every single day. You can't try harder than we try," Kardashian said, according to E!. "It's getting exhausting. He (West) always says, 'Trying for baby number two isn't as fun as trying to baby number one'."

West and Kardashian, popularly referred to as "Kimye", started dating in 2012. Their first child, a girl named North West, was born in 2013. In April the couple had the toddler baptised in Jerusalem.
