Khloe Kardashian is opening up about plans to expand her family – and how the COVID pandemic has delayed those plans.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star shared all things fertility during an interview with Sarah Hyland on the “Lady Parts” segment of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, revealing she definitely wants to give daughter, True, a sibling.
“If you do need assistance in fertility, it’s much more challenging during COVID,” Khloe revealed. “They say, ‘If you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans.’ So the one time I’m actually really trying to plan, God is saying, ‘Uh uh, you can’t make your plans like this!’ My plan was to have kids closer in age. But with COVID and everything, my plan [has] been a little delayed.”
The Good American designer said she and True’s father, Tristan Thompson, have frozen their embryos after revealing none of her eggs survived after they were defrosted to mix with sperm.
“I’m so grateful that I decided to make embryos,” Kardashian, who has undergone IVF three times, shared. “We realized that my eggs aren’t strong enough to be frozen. They should be mixed immediately with sperm to make embryos. I’m 36, but as young as I am, what if I was 40 and wasn’t as healthy and had to do IVF again?”
“I have so many brothers and sisters,” Khloe explained. “I think it’s such a blessing — especially during these times — to have a family member or people that you can play with and rely on and just have a buddy through life.”
