Khloe Kardashian Admits She's 'Second-Guessing' Using a Surrogate for Baby No. 2

Khloe Kardashian Admits She's 'Second-Guessing' Using a Surrogate for Baby No. 2

Khloe Kardashian has hit another road bump on her journey to having a second child.

This season on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe, 36, has been documenting her journey to try and have another baby with on-off boyfriend Tristan Thompson, whom she already shares 3-year-old daughter True.

After getting some tests done, Khloe found out there’s “an 80-something per cent chance” she’d miscarry if she were to get pregnant again. Khloe and Tristan, 30, then decided to make embryos and start looking for a surrogate.

As they explored surrogacy on the latest episode of KUWTK on Thursday (May 13), the two met with a surrogate therapist via Zoom, and the conversation didn’t exactly go the way they had hoped.

“What are your beliefs about fetal reduction or termination of pregnancy due to multiple pregnancies? Say, the embryo splitting and the surrogate was carrying twins suddenly,” the therapist asked Khloe and Tristan.

“If we’re blessed to have multiples we think that’s in God’s will, so we’re on board with that,” Khloe replied.

“And what if your surrogate wasn’t on board with that?” the therapist asked, to which a confused Khloe said, “But don’t they have to kind of go with what our wishes are?”

“Well, it’s your baby but it’s her body so she could terminate the pregnancy with any unplanned outcome,” he explained.

“I’m definitely getting freaked out I think as the questions go by just because I, of course, 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, you know, terminate the twin. Me not having control over that outcome, makes me very nervous,” Khloe said in her confessional.

She continued, “I mean, I know it’s her body but I still didn’t know it was really her choice and that might be really naive to say but I mean this is a big eye opener. I’m definitely second-guessing a couple things. It’s just a little intense this whole Zoom call.”

Rattled by the way the conversation with the surrogate therapist went, Khloe decided to reach out to a surrogacy broker, who assured her that there are ways to get her wishes in writing so that she would have more control over the process.

After talking to Tristan, Khloe decided that surrogacy is the best way for them to expand their family.

“I know you love to be in control, and you love to have your say and be hands on, but obviously in this situation for us, you kinda have to take a little step back,” Tristan told her. “Of course you can monitor but you know we got to trust the process and know that everything’s gonna be okay and we’re in this together, it’s gonna be just fine.”

“We got this,” he added. “I think the key is to find the right surrogate. And, you know, we’ll find the right one and when we do, it’ll be magic.”

“It’s just releasing so much control,” Khloe responded. “First it was being told, okay I would not be able to carry — that took a minute to process, cool. I’ve accepted that. Now I’m in phase two: Find a surrogate. I can’t think too far ahead, because this is where I am for phase two, I do think this is the right choice for us, but I’m not going to be rushed into it, I’m not gonna force it.”

The episode ended with Khloe saying that she and Tristan want to find a surrogate by the end of the year. FYI – the episode was filmed in summer 2020.

I definitely want [True] to have another sibling, and I think, you know, it’s selfish of me if I don’t give her that,” Khloe said. “But I want to make sure that whoever we choose as a surrogate is the right fit for our family. I’m not just rushing to do something so if I find one even within the next year, I’ll feel good about that.”

If you missed it, a recent message Tristan posted to Khloe is getting a lot of attention…
