“I’d love more kids”

She’d dreamed of start­ing a fam­ily of her own for years, but her first preg­nancy was rocked by scan­dal when, just days be­fore giv­ing birth in April, her part­ner Tris­tan Thomp­son was spot­ted kiss­ing a wo­man thought to be strip­per Lani Blair – closely fol­lowed by other cheat­ing ru­mours. But af­ter ap­pear­ing to for­give the bas­ket­ball star for his al­leged in­fi­deli­ties – with the pair since be­ing pic­tured hold­ing hands on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions – Khloé Kar­dashian ap­pears hap­pier than ever as a dot­ing mum to their now four-month-old daugh­ter, True.

Open­ing up about moth­er­hood, the 34-year-old star ad­mits, “True is so girlie and so sweet. She doesn’t have a lot of hair yet, so I love to put big bows on her head. I am do­ing ex­actly what I hated. What my mum did to me, I am ba­si­cally do­ing it to True. I used to see pic­tures of me, Kourt­ney and Kim dressed up as triplets with huge metal­lic bows. I was like, ‘What the f***! You couldn’t have put a smaller bow on?’ And now I’m do­ing it to True. I’m like, ‘What is wrong with me?’”

Khloé shocked her fa­mous re­al­ity fam­ily – in­clud­ing mum Kris, 63, and sis­ters Kourt­ney, 39, Kim, 37, Ken­dall, 22, and Kylie, 21 – when she re­lo­cated to Cleve­land, Ohio, to be closer to Tris­tan, who plays for the Cleve­land Cava­liers, soon af­ter they be­gan dat­ing in 2016.


But af­ter be­com­ing a first-time mum, Khloé made the de­ci­sion to move back to LA, and says she loves baby True grow­ing up along­side Kim’s daugh­ter, seven-month-old Chicago, and Kylie’s six-month-old daugh­ter, Stormi.

She says, “It’s so cru­cial to have my fam­ily around me. I will say, I really ap­pre­ci­ated hav­ing those first two months in Cleve­land. I loved hav­ing that time alone with my baby – that one-on-one time. I love my fam­ily, but any­one’s fam­ily can be very over­whelm­ing. Every­one has some­thing to say. Then com­ing back home two months ago, the first week was su­per over­whelm­ing. But it’s awe­some and now all of the cousins are in mu­sic class to­gether, and I love that we have a rou­tine. Kylie’s baby and Kim’s baby are so close in age, so it’s really awe­some.”

Af­ter find­ing fame with her fam­ily on their TV show Keep­ing Up With The Kar­dashi­ans in 2007, Khloé has been no stranger to trolling – once ad­mit­ting peo­ple would re­fer to her as the “fat, funny sis­ter”.

She’s also had to en­dure harsh crit­i­cism from on­line com­menters for ex­er­cis­ing through­out her preg­nancy, re­turn­ing to the gym soon af­ter giv­ing birth and at­tend­ing a hand­ful of events with­out True.


Open­ing up about the neg­a­tive com­ments, Khloé says, “When I work out, my baby is asleep and the mon­i­tor is with me. Even if it’s not, do you really think I am leav­ing my child alone? It just drives me crazy that peo­ple are pass­ing judge­ment, based on what? What do you want me to do? I get crazy with that, be­cause we also have to work to support our fam­i­lies and the life­styles that we have. I don’t know what peo­ple want us to do now that we have kids. Stay at home for­ever?”

Khloé be­came famed for over­haul­ing her health and

fit­ness in 2013 and shed­ding over 2st. And the star re­cently ad­mit­ted she feared she’d never get her size 8 body back, telling fans, “Body af­ter baby is def­i­nitely not the same. My body… Will it ever go back to nor­mal?”

But she in­sists it’s vi­tal for new mums to go at their own pace and en­joy their time with their baby.


She says, “I would never com­pare my jour­ney to some­body else’s and I hope no­body com­pares their jour­ney to mine. You don’t know what goes on be­hind closed doors and how much work it really takes to get this body and the di­et­ing. Just en­joy your new time as a mum. When I was in Cleve­land, I was alone – no fam­ily, no noth­ing – so I had all the time in the world to en­joy my baby. I had my one hour a day that I would work out. It was my time. The other 23 hours a day was about me and my baby. So, en­joy your baby and don’t put that much pres­sure on your­self.” Asked if she sees more ba­bies in her fu­ture, Khloé adds, “I would love to have more kids, yeah, but I don’t know if I’m ready to get preg­nant again. It’s a lot on your body, but I def­i­nitely want more kids. I just don’t know when that is go­ing to be. I heard that you should wait at least a year.”
