18 Pics of Auntie Koko to Tide Us Over ‘Til We See Khloé Kardashian in Mama Mode

In case you haven't already noticed, Khloé Kardashian has always been obsessed with the little kids in her family, babysitting and snapping pictures and letting them draw all over her face with makeup. TBH, we're pretty sure it's one of the most adorable things int he world, which is why we couldn't have been more excited when we found out she's finally having a baby of her own. And though right now, with news breaking that Khloé just gave birth to her little girl, the circumstances aren't exactly, uh, ideal considering her baby daddy Tristan Thompson's whole cheating scandal, we know she's still going to be one of the best moms around.

"Being pregnant has always been a dream of mine," Koko wrote on her app. When she finally shared the announcement on Instagram, she was overjoyed: "My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby!" And sure, that caption also included plenty of gushing over Tristan. (Wonder how she feels now about writing, "You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time!") But it also cemented that this has been a long time coming for Khlomoney — and we're sure she couldn't be happier regardless of the circumstances.

The real proof that the reality star is ready to be a mom, though, comes from all of her adorable photos with her nieces and nephews. She's just so good with them — and so sweet and so patient and so straight up adorable. Seeing her play Auntie Koko to all the little ones in her family (and outside her family, too — Auntie Koko is happy to be there for everyone) just makes us more excited to see her with a tiny tot of her own. She's going to be magic, and we've got the proof. Now we just can't wait for pictures of her and her own baby girl.
