Khloe Kardashian is sitting pretty as a newlywed. Why?

"I feel like being married makes you comfortable in your own skin," she says of how life with hubby of five months Lamar Odom has changed her. "My husband makes me feel beautiful."

Still, the 25-year-old said at the NYC launch for Three-O Vodka's Rangtang that staying fit "is a constant battle."

Her L.A. Lakers star husband "stays healthy because of his career," but she says she is often "not as hard" on herself when it comes to maintaining a fitness and nutrition plan.

So, is Khloe -- who revealed this week that she is no longer taking birth control pills -- considering following in sister Kourtney's footsteps and starting a family?

"Now, I'm like, 'Ugh, the screaming baby!'" Khloe tells of her aunt duties with two-month-old Mason. "It's nice to play with him then give him back to his mom! We're always excited to get babies, but Mason doesn't give me that push."

Even though she says "I still want kids," she tells Us she is "enjoying being a newlywed."
