Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are sharing their reluctance with using surrogacy to conceive on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The final season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is following Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s journey to welcome a second child together. With the couple’s strongest option being surrogacy, there appears to be some reluctance after they were asked a series of “uncomfortable” questions. Khloe shared how “freaked out” she is over the possibility of the surrogacy process not working out.
Fans were surprised when Khloe and Tristan opened up about their plans to expand their family. The two just announced their reconciliation last year after more than a year apart. It was during Khloe’s first pregnancy when she learned about the NBA player’s first cheating scandal. Shortly after welcoming their daughter True Thompson, the Boston Celtics player was caught kissing Kylie Jenner’s former BFF Jordyn Woods in his second scandal. But after taking some time to just co-parent their daughter, Tristan was able to get back into Khloe’s good graces over the course of the quarantine. Now with them back together and fueling engagement rumors, the family appears ready to make True a big sister.

During the latest episode of KUWTK, the Good American founder shared the evaluation process she and Tristan had to do ahead of hiring a surrogate to carry their baby. “I have been instructed to go the surrogacy route,” Khloe told the therapist, as captured by E! News. “And Tristan, luckily, was onboard and felt comfortable. I think more so because he saw my sister go through it.” But after getting asked a series of “uncomfortable” questions, the couple became worried over the possible challenges. “What are your beliefs about fetal reduction or termination of pregnancy due to multiple pregnancies,” the therapist asked. “Say the embryo split and the surrogate was carrying twins suddenly.”
After saying they were fine if this were to occur, the therapist reminded them of all of the decision-makers in a surrogacy pregnancy. “What if your surrogate wasn’t onboard with that?” Khloe shared her surprise with the question. “But, don’t they have to kind of go with what our wishes are?” she asked in response. “So, she could terminate the pregnancy with any unplanned outcome,” the therapist said while reminding the couple that it’s still the surrogate’s body. During her confessional, Khloe expressed how “freaked out” she is by the process now that she’s been reminded of the possible setbacks. “I think, as the questions go by…I know it’s her body my baby, but I really did not put two-and-two together that that means she has the control whether she would want to terminate the twin,” Khloe said.
While talking to her mother Kris Jenner, Khloe shared her worries about surrogacy and compared it to her sister who welcomed two children via a surrogate. “It’s just scary like hearing a lot of those things,” Khloe said. “Kim just made this seem so seamless, and maybe for her it was. I think she’s way less micro-mangey than I am.” After talking it over with Tristan, Khloe still seemed reluctant but wants to take time before making a final decision. “I do think this is the right choice for us, but I’m not gonna be rushed into it. I’m not gonna force it,” she said. She might be keeping a positive mindset while working out the kinks with her boyfriend. He’s currently involved in yet another cheating scandal that could put a pause on things.
