Khloe Kardashian has spoken about the “challenging” surrogacy process as she looks to have another child with Tristan Thompson.
The 36-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star revealed the problems she has encountered during the second part of the family’s reality show’s reunion special.
She told host Andy Cohen that she is wanting more children with boyfriend Tristan, 30, after they reconciled again, but is having a few issues in securing a surrogate.
Khloe compared her experience with that of her sister Kim, 40, who has used a surrogate on a couple of occasions previously,
The reality star said: “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.”
Khloe went on to say that the coronavirus pandemic had complicated issues.
She said: “It’s a lot to do with COVID. 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 also spoke about her relationship with NBA star Tristan, who she shares three-year-old daughter True, after she previously split from him after a cheating scandal.
She said: “I know the growth and all the work that he’s done, I know all of the help that he’s gotten and the constant efforts that he makes every single day and how hard he fought to get back with me currently.
“I mean, you can ask everyone, it really wasn’t an easy thing for him.
“I don’t understand why someone would go through all that if they weren’t serious.”
Khloe said that self-isolating with Tristan during the pandemic helped them form a strong bond and a source close to the family told People: “In the past few months, Tristan has really shown Khloé that he has changed. He is an amazing dad and partner.”
They decided to have another child but Khloe said that it would be a high-risk pregnancy, if she carried again.
Taking to Twitter in May, Khloe said that while Kim has had two positive experiences with surrogacy but she said that hers hasn’t been so.
Khloe wrote: “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 gruelling but still a huge blessing.”
She added in another tweet: “My own sister went through the surrogacy journey and I thought I knew so much about it.
“I realised I was very naïve to the process until I embarked on my own journey. Every journey is different.”
