Kim Kardashian Admits to Infertility While Khloe Plans for Spring Fertility Treatments
a blog by Claire, January 16, 2013
As if we didn't feel bad enough for poor Khloe Kardashian in the face of never-ending Kardashian pregnancy announcements, now we're hearing that Kim Kardashian believed she too would have difficulty conceiving. Interesting news coming from the girl who claimed she would not plan for a family until her divorce from Kris Humphries was finalized, but ultimately became pregnant with Kanye West’s baby just in time for the New Year’s Eve ball to drop.
Yesterday morning, on the Today show, Kim Kardashian announced she shares the same fertility condition as sister, Khloe, and this pregnancy was a pleasant surprise. “Khloe has been very open about her fertility issues and I think I was always really kind of quiet about mine, and I have similar issues, and so it was a pleasant surprise when so many doctors were telling me one thing and then the opposite happens,” the reality TV star counted her blessings given anticipated fertility problems.
Her reported due date is in July, right around the same time as Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter, Penelope (and Duchess Kate's due date if anyone's keeping track). Still, the couple isn’t racing to the altar in the near future. Aside from the fact that she is still legally betrothed to Humphries, Kardashian claims her focus is on the baby right now. "[Marriage is] something that we talk about, but I think it's just right now [we're] focusing on the baby," she said. West and Kardashian recently purchased a home together in the Bel-Air section of Beverly Hills to make room for baby.
Meanwhile, rumors have circulated that Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom will resume fertility treatments in the spring. Khloe reportedly hopes to be pregnant at the same time as Kim and has admitted in an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that of all the sisters, she never thought she would be the one unable to have babies. We’re crossing our fingers for you, Khloe!
