Khloe Kardashian has been in the headlines recently, and not for the reasons she would have wanted.
The middle Kardashian sister revealed months ago that she and her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, were expecting their first child together. After dating for almost a year, news broke about Khloe’s pregnancy.
“I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way,” Kardashian gushed about her NBA star boyfriend.
Khloe had previously been married to Lamar Odom, and the couple struggled to conceive. That marriage ended within a few years, after Odom fell into addiction and other legal problems. Odom began lashing out, and Khloe wasn’t having it. But with Thompson, Khloe says it’s different.
“My boyfriend is very protective of me,” she says. “Feeling loved and validated and secure is a huge thing. Tristan is protective of my entire family, which is beautiful. And I love that everything we do is as a union. When he speaks, it’s ‘us’ and ‘we,’ and that’s important because it shows that you’re sharing life.”
As for a family, it’s something the duo had definitely talked about.
“He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that’s lovely,” she said of the Cleveland Cavaliers center. “We could start at one and then grow from there. But now, knowing I’m not on birth control, it’s really scary. It’s like a really big step.”
In the past, Khloe was documented on her show visiting fertility doctors to find out why she was struggling to get pregnant.
“These are follicles, these hold eggs, so this is just giving you an idea of how young your ovaries are,” Dr. Huang told her. “There are fewer follicles than I anticipate for a normal 32-year-old.”
“This is definitely not at all how I thought this appointment was going to go,” she lamented. “What if I can’t get pregnant?”
Clearly that was no longer an issue, but what is an issue is the new videos of Khloe’s boyfriend motor-boating girls just days before she was set to give birth.
