Khloe Kardashian says she's still trying for baby no. 2 with Tristan

Khloe Kardashian reveals she’s still trying for baby No. 2 with Tristan Thompson… as she talks ‘challenging’ surrogacy journey: ‘I did have one and it fell through’

Khloe Kardashian has opened up about her desire to have a second child with on-again boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

During the second part of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, the 36-year-old, revealed she’s found it a ‘challenging’ process trying to secure a surrogate to carry her child.

‘It’s a very tedious, hard process. And it was interesting because Kim went through the journey, and I swear it felt like she said, “I want to get pregnant,” and two weeks later she found a surrogate,’ she explained.

Kim, 40, went the surrogacy route for her two youngest children; daughter Chicago, three, and son Psalm, two.

‘It’s a lot to do with COVID,’ Khloe added of her own difficulty with the process during the pandemic. ‘I did have one and then it fell through. There’s so many tests they have to do and all these things. So I’m still on that journey. It’s just, I thought it would be a much easier process. And it’s not. It’s challenging for me.’

During the final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe – who already has daughter True, three, with Tristan – opened up about her doubts about the surrogacy process.

In an episode that aired last month, Khloe revealed she already had embryos but was told by doctors that she was too ‘high-risk’ to carry a pregnancy to term.

‘I did have one and then it fell through. There’s so many tests they have to do and all these things. So I’m still on that journey. It’s just, I thought it would be a much easier process. And it’s not. It’s challenging for me.’ Khloe explained

So as she began to look for a suitable surrogate she admitted she found it tough to find someone who met her criteria.

Looking through the applicants’ portfolios, she rejected some for minor things, like the music they liked, worried that it might indicate a specific lifestyle.

‘I am just convinced that who you are when you’re pregnant really plays a role, the energy that you’re passing on to a baby,’ she told Kim.

Kim tried to ease her fears as she recalled how easy going she was about choosing someone to carry her babies.

She admitted to Khloe she only ever spoke to her second surrogate on the phone, and Kanye didn’t meet her until she delivered their baby.

‘I was very naïve’: Khloe tweeted more about her experience after the episode aired

‘The first time, we had the first surrogate over for dinner with her kids,’ Kim remembered. ‘The second one, I was like, “Sure.”

‘You got a uterus, here—take my kid,’ Khloe joked.

On Twitter she reflected on the experience: ‘Watching my sister go through her surrogacy journey it seemed so seamless and easy. maybe it is for some people. My journey has been a lot more intense and grueling but still a huge blessing.’

In another tweet, she wrote, ‘My own sister went through the surrogacy journey and I thought I knew so much about it. I realized I was very naïve to the process until I embarked on my own journey. Every journey is different.’ 

Meanwhile, Khloe is said to be happy to have Tristan back in Los Angeles this week and celebrated Father’s Day with him on Sunday.

‘Tristan is back in L.A. to celebrate Father’s Day with Khloe and True. He spent a lot of time away from L.A. during the [basketball] season,’ a source told People, adding that ‘Khloe is happy to have him back.’

Rebuilding: Elsewhere in the reunion Khloe talked about rebuilding trust with Tristan after seeing the effort he put in to winning her back.

‘She and Tristan are good. They are planning some summer vacations together,’ the source added. ‘They also still talk about giving True a sibling.’

The TV star answered some tough questions about her relationship with the serial cheat.

The couple – who recently reconciled – started dating in 2016 and welcomed their daughter True in 2018, just days after it was reported that the NBA player had cheated on Khloe multiple times.

Asked if she trusts Tristan, Khloe told host Andy Cohen: ‘I mean, I definitely trust him as a friend and all those things… What I need to find out, everything comes my way. I just need to trust and focus on today and go day by day. I can’t worry too much about everything else.

‘I know the growth and the work that he’s done. I know all the help that he’s got, and the constant efforts that he makes every single day, and how hard he fought to get back with me currently. I don’t understand why someone would go through all that if they weren’t really serious,’ she said.

The two-part reunion was reportedly filmed in early April, before the latest scandal broke when Tristan was accused of cheating with a model named Sydney Chase.

During filming, Khloe was still wearing the massive diamond Tristan, 30, gave her, on her left hand. In recent snaps shared to her Instagram, however, the Good American founder appears to have removed the rock.

During the sit-down the mom-of-one also admitted that she wants more kids with the Boston Celtics player.

Talking about the couple’s potential surrogacy journey, Khloe said that the process had been more difficult that she expected – partly because of COVID restrictions and her own personal feelings about not carrying the baby herself.

‘I thought it would be an easy process’ she said. It’s challenging for me.’

In April 2018 Khloe documented the birth of her daughter, at a hospital in Cleveland, for season 15 of KUWTK and memorably made sure that Tristan was in the delivery room. It came just days after reports that the athlete had cheated on her while she was pregnant.

Even her siblings couldn’t believe her composure in that moment, as during the reunion Kim gushed, ‘I just remember thinking you are the bravest, calmest, most honorable person I’ve ever met.’

Khloe explained that for her the whole day was about her daughter True, now three.

‘I knew, OK, my daughter is gonna want to see her birth video one day, I would hope,’ she said. ‘I wanted to think about True in that moment and say, “This is not about me. We’re gonna handle this on our own, later. This should not ever affect my child.” And I wanted to have these memories to have these moments for her.’

Khloe recalled initially taking Tristan back at that time because she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the pressures of being a new mom.

But when he cheated once more, this time with family friend Jordyn Woods in 2019, things cooled off again.

During the pandemic, however, Khloe says they grew closer again, when the couple quarantined together with their daughter.

‘And then, I don’t know, we just really, really became genuine great friends with one another,’ she recalled. ‘It just was this natural progression. I’m not saying that’s what I would encourage other people to do, it’s just what naturally happened with him and I.’

On Jordyn, Khloe said she hasn’t spoken to Kylie’s former best friend but commented that she thinks she’s doing ‘really well in her personal life’.

She also noted that it’s a ‘huge misconception’ that she forgave Tristan but not Jordyn.

‘I don’t have any grudge against Jordyn. I think people make mistakes, people live and they learn,’ she explained. ‘I forgive both parties. How could I forgive Tristan and not Jordyn? That sounds asinine in my opinion.

‘I forgive her, or else I would be a prisoner in my life,’ she added. ‘I have to forgive these people for me, and it’s up to them to forgive themselves and be accountable and learn and hopefully don’t repeat these same cycles.’
