The 35-year-old reality TV star, who already has son, Mason, four, and daughter, Penelope, two, with her longtime boyfriend, admits she hid her third pregnancy from him for a few weeks, as she was afraid of how he would react.
In a clip for an upcoming episode of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians,' she says: ''I definitely had to build up the courage to tell Scott because he's just been super depressed, so I just don't want to set him off.''
During the episode, the brunette beauty finally breaks the news to Scott, as she is folding clothes, saying: ''I just want to tell that I'm pregnant.''
It seems she was right to be concerned, as he immediately responds: ''You just keep suckering me into these kids. I can't handle this responsibility. I just can't take care of more kids.''
After Scott accuses her of planning to wait to tell him until after she gave birth, she says: ''Right, so you don't have to be anxious the whole time.''
Kourtney also reveals she found out she was pregnant in March and kept it a secret until after her birthday on April 18.
