Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odom Divorce Update: KK Reveals Details About Pregnancy; Chose Not to Get Pregnant During Marriage
Kim Kardashian recently revealed that sister Khloe was hesitant to have a child with erring husband Lamar Odom, reports Huffpost Celebrity. Khloe Kardashian's marriage troubles have been brewing some time, and the reality TV star knew it wasn't right to have a child amidst all the drama with her basketball star of a husband.
In an interview on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' Kim said, "Khloe wasn't trying to get pregnant. She wasn't showing up to these doctor appointments on purpose and behind our backs because she knew [the marriage] wasn't working," reports Mail Online.
Fans of the reality show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians,' are familiar with the fertility problem that Khloe and Lamar reportedly faced together, with one story thread of the show even exploring the possibility of Khloe adopting a baby instead. Khloe refused to see an adoption lawyer, and instead made it appear she had been getting fertility treatment to address the issue.
Closer Online notes that after her lavish fairytale wedding to Odom in 2009, Khloe openly talked about wanting to conceive right away, and she seemed entirely genuine in wanting to start a family with Odom back then. But on December 13 last year, the reality TV star finally filed for divorce, following a series of reports about Odom's cheating scandals, alleged drug use and DUI arrest.
Choosing not to have children in a troubled marriage may be viewed as a responsible move, proving that Khloe is one Kardashian who puts special importance in building an ideal home environment for her future offspring.
But although her effort to ensure that their would-be offspring is raised in a solid family is amiable, it can't be discounted that Khloe misled not only her family but also all Kardashian fans for implying she was infertile.
When asked by Redbook Magazine if she had a fertility problem, Khloe answered, "It's more about my hormones being off. I was taking hormone shots to stabilize them, and you have to take those shots consistently and they have to be done by a doctor - you can do them yourself, but I couldn't. And then after your cycle, you have to go to the doctor for ultrasounds and more testing. And if I'm in Miami and miss a treatment, I have to start all over again. It's a commitment and I don't mind doing it, but the timing was just off."
In the same interview, Khloe asserted that she's not pining away for an offspring. "People assume I'm desperate for a baby. And yes, I would love to have a baby. But I'm 28, and I've been married three and a half years. I love my life, but it doesn't feel incomplete right now," she told Redbook Magazine.
