Keeping up with Khloé!
Khloé Kardashian opened up about her pregnancy in her first TV interview since confirming the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, January 4. As Us Weekly exclusively revealed, the reality star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
Kardashian, 33, called the first trimester “the worst” and “the most uncomfortable” but is excited about this next chapter.
“I think once people know you’re pregnant, you get all the excuses. Hopefully I look pregnant, not just fat. It’s hard for me to breathe right now. I’m gonna try to not wear maternity clothes as long as possible,” she said. “The baby is on all my organs so I get out of breath just from walking.”
Us broke the news of her pregnancy in September — a baby boy. “I think if it’s a boy I’ll go with Junior — Tristan Jr.,” she said. “Then for a girl, I don’t know where to begin.”
Now six months along, Kardashian finally announced her pregnancy in an Instagram photo last month. “I just wanted to do something myself and write something that was heartfelt for me. I’ve wanted to have a baby for so long it’s just the perfect timing. God always has a plan and I just wanted to do it on my time and when I felt comfortable to do so,” she explained of the pic, which showed Thompson cradling her bare baby bump.
“[He’s] such a good dad,” she added. “He’s so great just during pregnancy and he makes me more excited too. I’m excited.” (The Cleveland Cavaliers player, 26, is already dad of son Prince with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.)
My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life! ❤️❤️❤️
As Us exclusively reported in September, the Strong Looks Better Naked author is in no rush to get married.
“We’re not in any rush for that. As you know I’ve rushed quite a few things before,” Kardashian told DeGeneres, also referring to her quick engagement to ex-husband Lamar Odom. “Right now, I’m so loving the place I’m in and very happy with how things are going. We talk about it for sure. What’s meant to be will be.”
