Khloe Kardashian revealed that she created three embryos with Tristan Thompson via the IVF process during the premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ final season.
The 36-year-old explained that she already knew the gender of her prospective children, telling sister Kim: ‘I have one girl and two boys.’
Drawing upon her own family dynamics, Khloe said she wanted to give her two-year-old daughter True, who she shares with on/off partner Tristan, a sister first.
‘My thing is that I think girls need sisters. Then I would do a boy next. Like, I want the girls close in age,’ she said.
IVF (In vitro fertilisation) is a popular treatment for those who are unable to conceive naturally. Eggs are retrieved from a woman and mixed with sperm. If fertilisation is successful, the embryo is transferred back to the woman’s womb in hopes of a successful pregnancy.
Khloe added that she was a high-risk carrier for a second pregnancy, with doctors telling her there could be an ’80-something per cent chance’ she would miscarry if she tried to carry another child.
The mother-of-one couldn’t hide her concern as she continued: ‘I almost miscarried with True at the beginning. But I didn’t know that was a lingering thing.’
In a confessional, Khloe stated that her update from doctors had been ‘shocking.’
The Good American mogul said: ‘All I’m trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my family. And it just…I seem to be running into more and more roadblocks, and it’s really hard for me to digest.’
After hearing about Khloe’s struggles, Kim reminded her sister that she had ‘the best experience’ with surrogacy for two of her children.
The Skims founder stated: ‘And I think that you know what giving birth feels like. I always say, if you can do it like, it’s such an amazing experience. But you’ll see that the love that you have for your kids is exactly the same.’
The mother-of-four insisted there’s ‘no difference’ with surrogacy outside the fact that ‘there was someone else that was the carrier.’
However, Khloe told KUWTK cameras: ‘I’m really grateful that there are other options but, I loved being pregnant with True. It’s such a beautiful experience to have.
‘Knowing I’d might never get to feel like that again, it’s daunting, it’s scary, it’s stressful, and it breaks my heart.’
