The news broke yesterday that Khloe Kardashian is expecting her first child with NBA star boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. The two have dated for about a year to the day and have tackled numerous hurtles as a couple, from the delivery of Thompson's child with his ex to the finalization of Khloe's divorce from Lamar Odom. If anything, the two have proved they can work through major challenges together, making them a great pair to raise a baby together!
The two initially met on a 'kind of' blind date through a mutual friend. Though Khloe was very not into a blind date, she says she felt naturally attracted to Thompson.
"We both felt this strong energy [when we first met]. I was like, oh this is such a nice, normal man — the normalcy is what I was craving. I'm a Christian; he's a believer in God and that's important to me. Tristan's morals and ethics are everything I've wanted and need in my life." Khloe has also reportedly said she's never felt a love like her and Thompson's, making us believe this is a man she'd want to have children with.
Khloe has been extremely candid about her fertility issues in the past saying, "I was 26 [when people started asking me when I was going to have a baby] and I admit, I didn't know a lot about my body. My hormones were off. I was taking hormone shots to stabilize them, and you have to take those shots consistently and they have to be done by a doctor. You can do them yourself, but I couldn’t." Khloe admits.
"And then after your cycle, you have to go to the doctor for ultrasounds and more testing. And if I’m in Miami and miss a treatment, I have to start all over again. It’s a commitment, and I don’t mind doing it, but the timing was just off."
Khloe even revealed to her doctor that she faked medical procedures to increase her chance of pregnancy because she didn't want to raise a child with Lamar Odom.
"I fake tried. I was married so I knew the circumstances weren’t the healthiest so I kept pretending I was doing it," she told her doctor. "I had to stop because there was much deeper stuff going on in our marriage… I knew it wasn’t the right situation to bring a child into… I’ve done a lot of covering up for him."
With current boyfriend Tristan Thompson, things are entirely different. "He wants to have kids now," Kardashian said in a Keeping Up testimonial. "He wants to have like five or six kids with me... Knowing I’m not on birth control, it’s scary. It’s like a really big step. I am really excited about my future. Me and Tristan, we’re doing so well." That episode aired in June of 2017. Soon after, Khloe shared these cute snaps of her and T.
While we're aware that calling each other Mom & Dad is a cute millennial thing, we think these dated Polaroids have a little more significance. If the rumours are true, Khloe is 3 months pregnant - which means she might have gotten pregnant in June. With July as her first month, August her second, and September her third!
