Khloe Kardashian says her current relationship with NBA star Tristan Thompson, 26, is the “best relationship of my life!”
The 33-year-old reality TV star has been dating the 6′ 9″ Toronto, Canada native since last year when they met on a blind date.
Khloe dismissed rumors that their frequent social media declarations of love for each other means they are ready to tie the knot. The love addict insisted she doesn’t need a ring to be happy in her romance.
“I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way,” she told Sunday’s YOU magazine. “I believe in marriage and I want to be married again one day but I don’t have a time frame. Why do people think that marriage equates to happiness? There are a lot of people in unhealthy marriages.”

Khloe, who has a history of failed relationships with men, has apparently learned a lesson or two about rushing headlong into marriage based on feelings. She tied the knot with former basketball star Lamar Odom in 2009, just a month after they met. They divorce in 2013.
Seeing Tristan with his eight-month-old son from a previous relationship has only increased her yearning for children of her own. The clock is ticking, but Khloe says she doesn’t want to rush into childbirth.
“Tristan is a great dad and he definitely wants more children, but we both feel that it will happen when the time is right. We’re still in a new relationship and I love us having time together,” she smiled. “Once you have kids you can’t get back your non-kid years… You worry about your children for the rest of your life. The concern I have is raising little human beings in a world that’s filled with such hate and terror. That seems very scary.”
