As longtime fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (judge me, it’s fine), I’ve really missed seeing Rob Kardashian on the show and even in the media these past few years. Rob and his new fiance Blac Chyna have been making up for the lost time that Rob spent being a super private person. Their whirlwind courtship has been extremely public, and now that they are engaged and have a baby on the way, I expect my Instagram feed to really be popping off in the next few months.
Instagram is cool and all, but Rob is slowly coming back into the limelight and he even had his first interview in years with E! (basically the Kardashian and Jenner channel at this point). It was a pretty brief interview, but it’s still nice to hear direct questions and answers instead of having to interpret subtweets and memes posted on social media.

Rob was joined by his fiance for the brief E! interview, which is not super shocking. These two are definitely in the honeymoon phase of their relationship and seem to do pretty much everything together. Plus, E! is saying that it’s Rob‘s first on camera interview in over two years, so I’m sure he wanted some support from his lady.
During the interview, Rob was asked about his baby that’s on the way and Rob was cutely excited for what’s to come. Rob said, “I mean it’s my first time, so everything is exciting, literally.” Aaaww. In between all the gossip and scandal, it’s hard to remember that a new baby will be here soon, so it’s just nice to see the story come back to that instead of some of the other nonsense.
Rob also said something that caught me off guard, considering how public he and Blac Chyna have been about every single thing during the past few months, “I’m happy and I just like to keep it, you know, keep it private…as private as can be.” I think that is a good sentiment to have since it is most important to focus on the health and well-being of the baby instead of anything in the media, but these two are just creating their own press these days, so I’m shocked by the statement. I have always been a Rob fan though, so I support what he wants.
Then, I thought it was super weird when the interviewer asked Blac Chyna if Rob’s sister Kim Kardashian gave her any motherhood advice since Blac Chyna is already a mother and has a son with Tyga. But I guess maybe it’s possible that Kim had specific advice that had to do with having two kids or something like that? Anyway, Blac Chyna did not think the question was as odd as I did because she said, “She gives me a lot of tips, actually.”
It’s nice to see that Rob is in a much better place than he has been in the past few years. I don’t know if I believe anything about this couple striving for privacy, but I guess we will see.
I also have to be petty for a second and point out that E! spelled Blac Chyna wrong in the interview captions and it had me cracking up… so much for the Kardashians having the network in their back pocket.
