A baby can fill your life with happiness. No wonder Khloé Kardashian wants another baby now. In the latest ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ season, the 36-year-old reality star can't stop talking about bringing another little bundle of joy into her life. However, she is concerned she cannot be a mother again!
In a shocking confession, Khloé said, "[My doctor] said that I would be a high-risk carrier for a pregnancy..." adding, "They said that it's, like, an 80-percent or something chance that I will miscarry." Talking about surrogacy with her sister Kim Kardashian, she added her doctor was "concerned" after recent health exams.
Khloe Kardashian's pregnancy woes: Can she be a mother again?
"I'm not gonna get into specifics on-camera," she said, adding, "I almost miscarried with True at the beginning." Khloé is a mother-of-one to her daughter whom she shares with Tristan Thompson. The little one will turn 3 years old now. Concerned about her future with kids, she added, "But I didn't know that was like a lingering thing."
Delving deep into her painful experience, Khloé said in her confessional: "This is all really shocking to me." She added, "All I'm trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my family, and I just seem to be running into more and more roadblocks. It's really hard for me to digest."
A source earlier told PEOPLE, "She really, really wants another baby and finds it hard to be patient. But she is trying to stay positive," adding, "She believes and hopes that it will happen this year."
Will Khloe Kardashian opt for surrogacy?
On camera, Khloé also went on to say: "Most likely, I won't be able to carry." Bringing her hopes up, Kim — who is a mother to four kids, North, Chicago, Psalm and Saint — said, "I honestly had the best experience with surrogacy."
It's no secret that Kim welcomed two kids through surrogacy and she suggested the same to her sister. "And I think that you know what giving birth feels like — I always say, if you can do it, it's such an amazing experience. But you'll see, the love that you'll have for your kids is exactly the same. There's no difference, except that there was someone else that was the carrier."
Although Khloé was "grateful" for the other options, she added she "loved being pregnant with True; it's such a beautiful experience to have." She added, "Knowing I might not ever get to feel like that again, it's daunting, it's scary, it's stressful. It breaks my heart."
History of fertility woes
If you haven't followed the star's life, you'd probably be surprised to know about Khloé's controversial history with very public fertility woes. If reports are to be believed, Koko once made a shocking confession about "fake" fertility treatments during her marriage to ex-husband Lamar Odom.
Back in 2017, after she quit taking birth control for a while, Dr Andy Huang found at least 17 follicles in her uterus. Earlier, he only counted five. Going by the confessional, she had found out that her uterus was much older than she was. "There are fewer follicles than I anticipate for normal 32-year-olds," Huang had said long back. Aghast to hear those words, Khloé uttered: "Shut the f**k up!" She admitted, "This is definitely not how I thought this appointment was gonna go," and added, "What if I can’t get pregnant?"
With the fertility woes ongoing in her life, will she opt for surrogacy? Well, only time will tell.
