Khloé Kardashian Shares the Real Reason She Wants to Have More Kids With Tristan Thompson
In a new episode of The Ellen Show’s digital series Lady Parts, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star opens up to host Sarah Hyland about her parenthood journey, describing how she and Thompson are working toward conceiving another baby and why she is so determined to grow her family with the NBA player.
Khloé Kardashian wants to give her daughter, True, a younger sibling
Now that they’ve gotten their relationship back on track amid a series of ups and downs, Kardashian wants to take the next step in her romance with Thompson by welcoming another baby with him sooner rather than later.
While speaking with Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland and OB-GYN Dr. Sherry Ross on a new episode of The Ellen Show’s “Lady Parts,” Kardashian opened up about her desire to have more children with Thompson.
Since she comes from such a big family, the reality star wants her daughter True, who’ll be turning 3-years-old this upcoming April, to have siblings she can grow up with.
“My plan was to have kids closer in age,” Kardashian explains. “I have so many brothers and sisters. I think it’s such a blessing—especially during these times—to have a family member or people that you can play with and rely on and just have a buddy through life.”
Khloé Kardashian’s plans to conceive a child in 2020 were derailed due to COVID-19
For the past year, Kardashian has been determined to conceive a baby. She’s even kept fans up to date on her motherhood journey, which has included her freezing her eggs and considering surrogacy.
The reality star has also been going through the IVF process, which she opened up about on Lady Parts.
According to Kardashian, she’s has gone through IVF three times and froze her eggs once already. When she was ready to make an embryo with Thompson, 12-14 of her eggs were defrost to mix with sperm. However, none of them survived.
“We realized that my eggs aren’t strong enough to be frozen,” she explains during the episode. “They should be mixed immediately with sperm to make embryos. So I actually have made embryos.”
But despite doing the IVF process all over again, Kardashian says it’s been difficult trying to conceive a baby due to the COVID-19 pandemic delaying her plans to use those frozen embryos.
“And then, you know, with COVID, finding this whole fertility process, if you do need assistance in fertility, it’s much more challenging during COVID,” Kardashian adds. “They say, ‘If you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans.’ So the one time I’m actually really trying to plan, God is saying, ‘Uh-uh, you can’t make your plans like this!'”
Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are still planning for baby no. 2
With many doctors, hospitals, and clinics canceling their fertility treatment procedures until further notice due to the pandemic, there’s no telling when Kardashian will be able to begin the process of conceiving another child.
But despite the current circumstances, Kardashian and Thompson are still holding onto hope that they will soon welcome another baby into their family.
In an exclusive clip from the upcoming season of KUWTK, the on-again, off-again couple discuss the idea of giving their daughter a younger sibling, preferably a baby sister.
“Being in quarantine with her, I felt bad,” Kardashian tells Thompson in the clip. “She had no friends, she had nobody, because they were isolated from each other. True is getting older. I just feel like it’s now time to have another kid.”
For his part, Thompson didn’t hesitate to share his stance on having another baby with Kardashian. “Yup, that’s what I like to hear,” he said.
Hopefully, things will start going back to normal in the upcoming months so that Kardashian and Thompson’s dream of having baby no.2 can become a reality sooner rather than later!
