Brody Jenner has joined the Kardashians in the latest twist in the popular E! network reality TV show.
A release from the E! network has confirmed that the 29 year old son of Bruce Jenner will feature in the upcoming season 8 of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
Brody Jenner has appeared before on the show, but his appearances have been limited to cameo features rather than any extended period on the show.
Brody Jenner has said on Monday that he is looking forward to "getting to know (his) extended family a little better."
The reality TV show is one of the biggest hits on the E! network and features the Kardashian sisters as well as half sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, and their parents Bruce and Kris Jenner.
The news comes as the spotlight in the family has been put firmly on Kim Kardashian, who is pregnant and expecting her first baby later this year.
Kim has said that she is not yet trying to show off her baby bump, but is more trying to hide her weight gain at the moment.
Still, Kardashian insisted that she is not trying to accentuate her belly just yet.
"At this stage I guess I'm more focused on concealing the weight gain than I am about dressing the bump, just because it hasn't popped yet. My new J Brand maternity jeans are a blessing because they make me feel slim and comfortable, and I'm excited to try other looks," Kardashian wrote on her personal blog.
"I heard Jet makes some amazing maternity jeans too. Once I start showing more I'll be all about showing off my bump, and I can't wait!"
Kardashian also recently announced that she will be keeping her fans updated about her pregnancy and fashion choices on her blog.
"I'm definitely having a lot of fun with my maternity fashion and love trying new things," she wrote. "I want to share my pregnancy fashion tips with other expecting moms out there and I know it's different for everyone; some women start showing sooner, others don't start showing until later, but I want to share my own personal experiences with you guys along the way."
Season eight of Keeping Up With the Kardashians is set to premiere in June.
