A Los Angeles judge has approved a divorce settlement between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.

"I think this is a reasonable way to resolve this case," Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg said during a courtroom hearing on Friday. He did not disclose the terms of the settlement.

Humphries sent his lawyer but did not appear in court. Kardashian, who is pregnant with a child by her boyfriend Kanye West, appeared in a black silk puffy sleeveless maternity dress embellished with sequins on the skirt.

"Ms. Kardashian, is this your signature?" the judge asked her as he perused a three-page settlement agreement.

"Yes," the 32-year-old replied. She continued to answer yes when asked if she had discussed the matter with her attorney and understood that there would be no trial.

"During your marriage did irreconcilable differences occur?" the judge asked.

"Yes," said Kardashian.

"Is there any way your marriage can be saved?" he asked.

"No," said Kardashian.

She married the NBA player in a high-profile wedding in August 2011. She filed for divorce later that year, after 72 days of marriage.

Humphries, 28, sought an annulment claiming their marriage in an elaborate wedding ceremony was a fraud staged for her reality show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

She denied the allegations and insisted on a traditional divorce. She apparently won.

"The court is going to grant dissolution of marriage," the judge said, advising that the divorce would not be final until papers are drawn up and signed.

Humphries did not attend the brief hearing. His lawyer, Benjamin Johnson, said he agreed to the settlement. The judge dropped an order for the Brooklyn Nets power forward to appear and explain why he failed to attend a previous hearing. According to TMZ, Kardashian asked the court to drop a financial penalty he was also facing for missing that hearing.

Kardashian was hustled into court by sheriff's deputies through a back entrance and no photos were allowed.

The judge congratulated Johnson and Kardashian's attorney, Laura Wasser, for achieving the settlement.

"I wish both parties the best of luck as they move forward with their lives," he said.

Kardashian told "Entertainment Tonight" after the hearing that she is not officially divorced until the final agreement is signed by the judge, which Wasser said would take place in June.
