Kris Jenner will begin hosting her very own talk show in coming months following recurring reports claiming the Kardashian matriarch has been eyeing the opportunity for months.

The 56-year-old reality TV star will host "Kris," a daily 1-hour program that will reportedly get a test run on the Fox network later this year. It will reportedly feature celebrity guests and discussions will center on fashion, beauty and lifestyle, according to

"The latest adventures, successes and disappointments surrounding the extensive Kardashian and Jenner family fill entertainment magazines and create daily online headlines," Stephen Brown, Twentieth's EVP of Development & Programming, said in a statement obtained by Deadline.

"At the center of this fascinating empire is Kris Jenner – a dedicated mom and a successful business woman. Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted – all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host," he added.

The show, which is expected to feature Jenner's famous children, has been described by the mother of six and grandmother of two as a "dream come true."

"This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it's definitely a dream come true! I can't wait for this new adventure to begin," Jenner said.

Jenner, who currently manages all of her children's careers, has allegedly set her sights on her daughter Kim, 32, and her boyfriend Kanye West, 35, who are expecting their first child together.

"They also want to have celebrity guests on the show starting with Kayne and Kim! This will be part of their $40 million dollar deal with E!" a source was previously quoted as telling The Hollywood Reporter.

Kim's press coverage has been booming in recent weeks due to her pregnancy and ongoing divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries. Critics expect that Jenner, who is "thrilled" that her daughter is has moved on with West, will ask them questions about their relationship, which would likely boost ratings.

"Kris Jenner is ecstatic that Kim is dating Kanye; she can see their celebrity stock and wealth rising by the day," a source told "Kris just marks Kris Humphries down as a major mistake to be forgotten and is eager for Kim to move on to bigger and better things, which, she believes, Kanye definitely is."
