Socialite Khloe Kardashian and boyfriend Tristan Thompson are ready to start their family.
During Sunday’s season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the 32-year-old Love addict went with her sister Kim Kardashian to visit a fertility doctor to see if she could be a potential surrogate for Kim’s third child.
Kim was advised that a new pregnancy would probably cause a life-threatening emergency.
The doctor revealed to Khloe that she had fewer ovarian follicles than a woman of her age and recommended she freeze her eggs, leading the star to worry if she’d ever be able to have children.
Upon the doctor’s suggestion, Khloe stopped taking birth control pills and later discovered that her ovaries are normal.
This means the reality TV star and the Cleveland Cavaliers center can get to work immediately on a new Kardashian reality TV star.
“I am so relieved to know that I am able to get pregnant,” Khloe said on camera. “But now I have so many other things to think about, like do I want to have my own baby now, like I don’t know. I’ve hit a crossroad in life, guys.”
Now that she’s fertile, Khloe told Kim that she would rather have her own baby rather than being Kim’s surrogate.
“He wants to have kids now,” Khloe told Kim.
Khloe gushed about her beau. “He’s so f**king cute and supportive and sweet, I’ve just never had… he’s just such a nice, nice person.”
She later explained, “Tristan and I definitely talk about starting a family. He wants to have five or six kids with me and that’s lovely – we could start at one and grow from there. But now knowing I’m not on birth control it’s just like it’s scary, it’s like a really big step.”
In the same episode, Khloe, who was previously married to NBA veteran Lamar Odom, told her doctor she pretended to be sterile so she wouldn’t have to bear his baby.
She said that she once “fake tried” to get pregnant during their marriage because “circumstances weren’t the healthiest” to bring a child into.
Odom nearly died during a drug and alcohol binge at a Las Vegas brothel in 2015.
