Preg­nant Khloé:

“I was told it wouldn’t hap­pen for me – I’m so ex­cited!”

Closer (UK) - - Contents - By Annabelle Lee

She’s en­dured a tur­bu­lent di­vorce, re­la­tion­ship heartaches and fer­til­ity strug­gles over the years, but Khloé Kar­dashian is now cel­e­brat­ing her first preg­nancy – some­thing she never thought would hap­pen.

Af­ter split­ting from hus­band La­mar Odom in 2013 and find­ing out she may strug­gle to fall preg­nant, Khloé went on to find love with bas­ket­ball player Tris­tan Thomp­son, 33, in 2016. And last year, the pair were de­lighted – and sur­prised – to dis­cover they were ex­pect­ing.

“You just keep get­ting told it’s not go­ing to hap­pen for you, so I feel su­per lucky,” she says. “The first trimester was a lit­tle rocky, but the nau­sea has gone. Now I feel great and I’m re­ally ex­cited.”

There’s been a baby boom in the Kar­dashian house­hold re­cently. Last month, 37-year-old Kim wel­comed her third child, daugh­ter Chicago, via a sur­ro­gate, and just last week, youngest sib­ling Kylie, 20, an­nounced the ar­rival of her baby daugh­ter, called Stormi, af­ter keeping her preg­nancy un­der wraps.

Khloé, 33, who shared most of her preg­nancy with Kylie, posted a bump pic of the pair on In­sta­gram, with the cap­tion, “Never in a mil­lion years did I think we’d do this to­gether, but it’s been that much more spe­cial be­cause of it. What a mag­i­cal ride it’s been.”


And the re­al­ity star says sis­ters Kim, who is also mum to North, four, and Saint, two, and Kourt­ney, who has Ma­son, eight, Pene­lope, five, and Reign, three, have been dish­ing out the par­ent­ing tips al­ready.

“They’ve given me a lot of ad­vice. Too much!” she laughs. “I have got­ten to the point where I’m like, ‘Shut up and take your own ad­vice!’”

But Khloé ad­mits that telling the fam­ily was a very spe­cial mo­ment, and some­thing they caught on cam­era for their show Keeping Up With The Kar­dashi­ans.

“We told them all to­gether be­cause we didn’t want any­body to feel like we told some­one be­fore the other,” she says. “My mom [Kris Jen­ner] had the big­gest re­ac­tion, though – she was cry­ing!

“I know peo­ple prob­a­bly think film­ing it is in­va­sive or what­ever, but we’ve been film­ing since 2007 so it’s our only way of life. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love that I get to look back at all of these mo­ments.”

Khloé also doc­u­mented on cam­era the mo­ment she found out she was preg­nant.

“I was feel­ing so dif­fer­ent, I can’t ex­plain it,” she says. “And Tris­tan kept say­ing, ‘I think you’re preg­nant’. He was teas­ing me, but I guess he was semi-se­ri­ous. I was say­ing, ‘There’s no way!’ Then I asked my as­sis­tant to get me a preg­nancy test. Tris­tan was ac­tu­ally out of the coun­try at the time, but I did it and I was freak­ing out. We filmed the whole thing and then I had to keep it quiet un­til Tris­tan came back – it was very spe­cial.”


And with all Khloé’s sis­ters – Kim, Kourt­ney, Ken­dall and Kylie – hav­ing names be­gin­ning with K too, Khloé ad­mits it’s a trend she’d like to stick to.

“Tris­tan and I do talk about names, but nam­ing a hu­man is prob­a­bly the hardest

thing ever. Right now, it’s just a K or a T. I like nar­row­ing it down a lit­tle bit.”

The star, who lost 2½st in 2015 and launched her own show, Khloe Kar­dashian: Re­venge Body, posted a pre-preg­nancy throw­back pic­ture on In­sta­gram last month, writ­ing, “Body I miss you” along with a sad face emoji. But de­spite miss­ing her in­tense work­outs, she says she’s con­tin­u­ing to ex­er­cise most days and ad­mits it has helped to ease com­mon preg­nancy ail­ments.


“My doc­tor wants me to work out – ev­ery day if I can. I am fol­low­ing doc­tor’s or­ders and I feel good,” she says. “They say it leads to a bet­ter de­liv­ery and I feel great. I would feel hor­ri­ble if I was just sit­ting around and over-eat­ing all day. I don’t have swollen feet; I don’t have a lot of these things be­cause I’m stay­ing so ac­tive right now. I feel that I’m in a re­ally healthy place in my life, but it took me a long time to get there.”
