AceShowbiz - Khloe Kardashian is finding surrogacy a "very tedious" and "hard" process after struggling to find a suitable candidate to carry her next child.
The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star is keen to have another baby with basketball player Tristan Thompson, with whom she already has three-year-old daughter True, and she has been exploring her options with surrogacy after receiving positive feedback from her sister Kim Kardashian, who welcomed her two youngest children, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two, through the process.
However, Khloe admits her experience so far hasn't been quite so smooth.
She said, "It's a very tedious, hard process. And it was interesting because Kim went through the journey, and I swear it felt like she said, 'I want to get pregnant,' and two weeks later, she found a surrogate."
"It's a lot to do with COVID. I did have one and then it fell through. There's so many tests they have to do and all these things. So I'm still on that journey. It's just I thought it would be a much easier process. And it's not, it's challenging for me."
Khloe has also opened up about reuniting romantically with Tristan, confirming months of speculation about the status of their relationship, which initially ended following his first cheating scandal just days before she gave birth to baby True.
Khloe has been determined to maintain a good relationship with Tristan for the sake of their daughter, and they isolated together during the coronavirus shutdown. Now they are back together as a couple.
However, the Good American co-founder insists she wouldn't necessarily "encourage" other women in her situation to do the same.
She said, "We weren't (together) for Season 20 (of Keeping Up with the Kardashians)..., and then, I don't know, we really, really became genuine, great friends with one another and great co-parents, he's a great dad."
"Co-parenting's not the thing, it just was this natural progression and I'm not saying that's what I would encourage other people to do, it's what naturally happened for him and I."
But Khloe is taking her trust in Tristan one day at a time. "I mean, I definitely trust him as a friend and all those things," she said. "I need to focus on today and go day by day. I can't worry too much about everything else. I know the growth and all the work that he's done."
"I know all the help that he's gotten and the constant efforts that he makes every single day and how hard he fought to get back with me currently."
"I mean, you could ask everyone, it really wasn't an easy thing for him. But I don't understand why someone would go through all that if they weren't really serious."
