The 35-year-old has revealed she’s hoping to conceive via IVF – and the ball is already rolling on freezing her eggs for the process.
“I’ve been doing hormone injections for about five days and the injection process has been fine,” Khloé revealed on her family’s hit show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “Ido have a sperm donor … It’s Tristan.”
Kardashian split from ex Thompson in February 2019, following a very public scandal when he cheated with family friend Jordyn Woods. But with the pair moving forward from the drama to successfully co-parent their little girl, and spending time together as a family in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, it seems Kardashian is keen to include him in future family plans.
Having faced fertility issues in the past, the Good American co-founder is doing everything she can to give herself the best chance at falling pregnant the second time around, including turning to IVF. “After my doctor’s appointment I talked to Tristan because if you can create embryos and do all the DNA testing, I do think that’s the smarter choice,” Kardashian explained.
“They can tell if one of the eggs is bad somehow, but you can’t tell any chromosome abnormalities. Dr Huang was saying that the bonus of doing embryos [is that] you get to see what are your stronger embryos, which are healthy – you get to already know all that by mixing them with sperm.”
But, she conceded, “it’s weird because Tristan and I are not together”.
Meanwhile, Thompson has reportedly been actively trying to reconcile his relationship with the mother of his child, with a close source revealing to E! News that the NBA player was constantly trying to make up for his mistakes since their split. “Tristan is always trying to win Khloé back,” the insider said. “He feels guilty and knows how badly he messed up. Khloé was the best thing that ever happened to him.”
And it seems fathering another child with Kardashian has been on his mind, too, with Thompson recently telling Kardashian not to throw out all of True’s old toys. “What happens if we have another girl? We have to buy it all over again,” he said, prompting her to joke “Who’s having another girl with you?”
“I’m just saying, True does need a sibling,” he replied (apparently forgetting for a moment that True already has a half-brother – Thompson’s 3-year-old son, Prince, with model Jordan Craig, who he left in 2016 while she was pregnant to be with Kardashian.
However, while Thompson may be hoping for a romantic reunion, Kardashian looks to be plotting a more formal arrangement.
“Right, so I might get some embryos and get a sibling,” she quipped. “I might need to borrow some sperm or get some from you. We’ll figure that out later.”
But while she’s already begun the process of freezing her eggs, the reality TV star admits she’s conflicted about turning to her ex for help. “He has to sign legal paperwork that he would just be my sperm donor,” she told her sisters. “But you never know – like what if in three years I get married to someone and I’m like, ‘You know what? I don’t want that’.
