The pressure is on Khloé Kardashian. The reality star has been trying to get pregnant with boyfriend Tristan Thompson for more than four months but has not been having luck. Not helping matters is big sis Kim Kardashian, who is stepping in.
Kim, 36, is pushing Khloé, 33, to use a surrogate, but sources reveal exclusively to Life & Style that Khloé wants to do things the old-fashioned way when it comes to her first child with the NBA star. “She isn’t even willing to discuss it with Kim,” says the insider. “She is determined to get pregnant on her own.”
Khloé is “stressing out over conceiving with Tristan,” the source adds, and Kim just wants her to know there is an alternative. At one point, Khloé offered to be Kim and husband Kanye West’s surrogate. However, she received some bad news when she went to a fertility specialist.
“These are follicles, these hold eggs, so this is just giving you an idea of how young your ovaries are,” her doctor said on KUWTK. “There are fewer follicles than I anticipate for a normal 32-year-old.” Khloé was visibly shocked and went on to explain how she is ready to start a family with Tristan, 26.
“I would love to have a family,” she said at the time. “We’ve talked about it. He is a father, and I know for a fact that he would be an impeccable father. I definitely want to be a mom. But I don’t put the pressure on it. It’s not like, the clock is ticking. I feel in my soul it will happen.”
Meanwhile, Kim recently confirmed that she is trying for baby No. 3 with Kanye via a surrogate. “I hope so,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “There have been a lot of things said and Kanye and I have not confirmed anything. We’re definitely trying. We are hoping so.” You know what they say, the more the merrier!
