*The two were complete strangers less than a year ago. But Radar Online is reporting today that Khloe Kardashian and her husband of eight months, Lamar Odom, are expecting their first child.

The couple, who got married on Sept. 27, 2009, are said to be elated by the news – which comes just six months after her sister Kourtney gave birth to her son Mason Dash Disick.

“Khloe was inspired by Kourtney having a baby,” a source close to the family tells RadarOnline.com. “Lamar is happy and ecstatic. Khloe is having cravings of fruit and ice cream.”

Khloe’s pregnancy is sure to be featured on the family’s E! reality series, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” and the thought of it reportedly has the Los Angeles Lakers star a bit concerned.

“They’re really happy, but Lamar is a little weary of exposing his baby on TV,” the source said. “He already doesn’t like his life being played out for everyone to see eight months of the year.”

Sources for Radar Online say Khloe wanted to keep the news secret until it could be announced on the show — and until she passed through the vital first trimester.
