Khloe Kardashian‘s struggles with infertility are no secret. Khloe and husband Lamar Odom have been trying to expand their family and after learning that her sister Kourtney Kardashian was pregnant with her second child, the stress apparently became too much for the otherwise happy couple!
In the promo clips E! has been airing for the new Khloe and Lamar season, Lamar can be seen stating he is jealous Kourtney is pregnant again, while he and Khloe have still yet to conceive.
Appearing on the Today Show, Khloe spoke candidly about dealing with her infertility struggles and how it has affected her marriage. “It’s always in the plan for Lamar and I to start a family,” Khloe explained. “It broke my heart [to hear he was jealous that Kourtney was pregnant with her second baby]. I didn’t think he felt that way.”
Despite trying for more than a year, the couple is still hopeful and Lamar is supportive of his wife no matter what. “We really are like, when it happens, it happens,” Khloe confirms.
And Khloe denies reports that she has been going through rounds of IVF! “There are so many rumors out there about fertility treatments,” Khloe confronts. “Yesterday I was sent all these flowers to my condo in Dallas, and I looked at the cards, and they were from three fertility treatments saying, ‘We hope you try us out.’ But I’m doing it the old-fashioned way.” That’s an unorthodox Valentine!
The couples’ difficulties working through these issues will be a central theme on the upcoming season of Khloe & Lamar. “[The cameras] added extra pressure. We were in the middle of filming, so I couldn’t say, ‘We’re done!’ just because we’re moving. And [the producers] loved it. Drama! Stress! Great!,” Khloe shares.
While Khloe has been honest about the stress trying to conceive has put on her marriage, saying they are not using fertility treatments, multiple reports have claimed otherwise. Allegedly, after months of failed IVF attempts, Khloe and Lamar are reportedly turning to other alternatives. “Everyone has been really supportive, but Lamar no longer knows how to deal with the constant disappointments,” an insider says.
Khloe wants a child so badly she’s willing to try anything to get one. “She’s desperate for child,” the insider describes. “How it happens doesn’t matter, as long as it just happens.”
According to In Touch Weekly‘s (print edition), Khloe has asked her sister Kourtney to be her surrogate! “She immediately said yes,” a family insider reveals, adding that the struggles dealing with Kim’s divorce the family has grown closer than ever. “Kourtney will do anything to help because she knows just how much Khloe is suffering over her infertility,” the friend explains.
Kim Kardashian was also quoted in Allure magazine as saying Khloe asked her about being a surrogate! While Kourtney may be totally on board, long-time boyfriend Scott Disick is not! “In typical Scott fashion, it doesn’t benefit him so he’s against it,” the source discloses. Regardless of what Scott thinks, Kourtney is planning to go through with it in 2013, after she has recovered from her most recent pregnancy.
If you recall, a number of reports stated the two were spotted together having lunch over the weekend, albeit in a group setting. Well, TMZ caught up with Reggie yesterday and when asked about the rumors he is back together with Kim, Reggie made it clear they were false.
Even more interesting, it appears the so called run-in with TMZ cameras might have been planned by Reggie to get it out there that he is definitely not back together with Kimmie Kakes! Poor poor Kim, she might have just divorced the last man on earth who was willing to claim her!
