This month, Keeping up with the Kardashians star, Khloe Kardashian glows on the cover of REDBOOK. In the June issue, the reality star, and now fashion designer opens up about her pregnancy challenges, married life, and famous family.
Check out the highlights from the interview below.
On sharing her desire to get pregnant with the world:
I do think my difficulty getting pregnant has helped a lot of women. Do I wish people would quit asking me about it 24/7? Yes, but I don’t regret it. I was 26 when that started, and I admit, I didn’t know a lot about my body. It was hard for me to understand what was happening because my mom had six kids and Kourtney got pregnant quickly. People assume I’m desperate for a baby. And yes, I would love to have a baby. But I’m 28, and I’ve been married three and a half years. I love my life, but it doesn’t feel incomplete right now.
On whether she has been diagnosed with a fertility problem:
It’s more about my hormones being off. I was taking hormone shots to stabilize them, and you have to take those shots consistently and they have to be done by a doctor—you can do them yourself, but I couldn’t. And then after your cycle, you have to go to the doctor for ultrasounds and more testing. And if I’m in Miami and miss a treatment, I have to start all over again. It’s a commitment and I don’t mind doing it, but the timing was just off .
On rumors that she resents Kim for being pregnant:
Please. People want to assume that I’m devastated. I couldn’t be happier. I actually got mad at Kourtney, because she was afraid to tell me at first. So I get why people think I’m hurt, because my own sister thought I would be.
On welcoming Kanye West into the family:
I love Kanye. We’ve known him since 2004. He always had a crush on Kim, but she was never into him at the time. I’d always told Kim they were like two peas in a pod, and she would never listen. Then one day she says, “I think I like Kanye.” I was like, “Since when?”
