Khloé Kardashian welcomed a baby girl in April, something many fans will know has been a dream of hers for a really long time.
Khloé’s taken to motherhood like a duck to water and she constantly shows off little True on her social media platforms – how adorable is she?!
But now Khloe has revealed during the latest season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, that she kept her pregnancy under wraps for so long (5 months to be exact), to give her sister, Kylie, the chance to announce hers first as she was three months ahead of Khloe.
In the new season Khloe is filmed saying:
“I am really anxious to announce my pregnancy, but Kylie‘s three months ahead of me and I want to give her her own time to shine and let her do her thing,” Khloe said on the show.
“But Kylie keeps going back and forth on whether she will announce. Waiting is so frustrating because my body is changing and people are super invasive and just not being respectful.”
When Kim told Kylie about it, Kylie pulled Khloe up and told her to go ahead and announce it as she was keeping her whole pregnancy under wraps, and didn’t want to be in the spotlight.
“You should go ahead,” Kylie told Koko, “you don’t have to wait for me, you should announce – it’s exciting for you too.”
Letting your sister take the limelight during your pregnancy? Now, THAT’S love.
Obviously the Kardashians are a super cute family (when they’re not bickering on social media, that is), so it’s hardly surprising that they want their own children to share a close bond.
And it looks like baby True and Kim and Kayne’s daughter, Chi, are already super close.
Kim took to Instagram to share the *sweetest* snap of the duo together, captioning it ‘best friends for life’. Our hearts!
What we love most about Khloé is how she’s never afraid to give a candid insight into motherhood. Recently, the star spoke honestly about the difficulties she encountered when breastfeeding.
Taking to Twitter, Khloé revealed: “I had to stop breast feeding ??? it was really hard for me to stop (emotionally) but it wasn’t working for my body. Sadly.”
She also admitted to trying ‘every trick in the book’, from water and special cookies to power pumping and massages. “I tried so very hard to continue,” she told her followers.
The star did, however, admit that it was a relief when she finally switched to formula, after spending most of her free time focusing on how to produce milk for little True.
“I fought and fought to try and continue but then when I actually stopped, I didn’t realize what a relief it was for me to not stress and worry anymore,” she said.
We’re glad Khloé has found a solution that works for her and hopefully her honesty will help other women who may be struggling to breastfeed.
This is what I wish someone had told me about motherhood before having children
However, Khloe’s revelation comes after one of her followers cruelly trolled her baby. In a tweet that’s since been deleted, one of Khloe’s followers wrote: “Is it just me or is @khloekardashian baby, True, not cute at all?”
Not one to take criticism lying down, Khloe hit back at the troll with a sassy reply. She wrote:
“What self-respecting adult would even comment on a child’s appearance? What type of disgusting human being are you? It’s pathetic that you are this miserable in your life.”
Here’s her tweet…
You tell ’em, Koko!
One recent video also had fans questioning Khloé’s parenting decisions, after it seemed to show that True had her ears pierced…
Fans soon expressed their opinions, with many feeling angered and frustrated at Khloé’s choice.
Others, however, don’t see a problem and defended her decision.
It’s been a topic that’s long been debated on talk shows and in parents’ forums. What do you think? Are they right to call her out or should they let Khloé make her own calls when it comes to her daughter?
At two months old, that isn’t the only drama that little True has faced – it hasn’t all been plain sailing with her mother and father. For the sake of little True, it seems that Khloe has given the relationship with her baby daddy another go after Tristan was seen in videos getting close to other women. But, as always, the internet has an opinion on the matter.
One of Khloe’s followers wrote: “I love, adore root for @khloekardashian but I’m so disappointed she stayed with that wasteman Tristan. she preaches about women knowing their self worth and when to walk away but when it’s time to walk the walk, she’s a hypocrite”
Anyone who follows Khloe knows she’s partial to a clap back – and here it is…
“Not exactly Queen Persia, you have no knowledge of what goes on in our household or the enormous rebuilding this takes to even coexist. I’m proud of my strength. I appreciate your opinion and I hope you hold that same opinion to everyone else who has stayed in situations.”
You tell ’em, Koko!
The fan then replied: “I’m not trying to judge you, bc I do adore you girl. You’re a role model to millions of girls, I get that you’re trying to figure shit out tbh, your fans are protective of you. we just don’t want some lame breaking your heart again. that’s it.”
We love to see women supporting other women.
Khloe’s tweet comes as Tristan shared a video kissing his daughter, saying “Daddy loves you” and this sweet snap with his two kids.
Tristan recently spoke out about becoming a father-of-two for the first time.
Speaking on the podcast, Road Trippin’, he said: “Prince is getting big, jumping on a little trampoline and baby True is eating, sleeping and, uh, sh*ttin’. That’s all they do. That’s all they do.”
He went on to explain how different it is, being a dad to a little girl: “Yeah, I think with a girl, you’re just so much more emotionally like… With a boy, it’s just like, “Hey, man. You’ll be alright, man. Stop crying.” But with True, it’s like, “True, it’s gonna be OK. You know, we’re right here. Daddy’s here to feed you. It’s me! Look, yeah!” It’s way different, but it’s fun, though. It changes you.”
A source told E! News that the couple hopes to work through their problems. They said,
“Khloe has given Tristan another chance at their relationship and is trying to put the pieces back together for the sake of True. Although she is crushed by the scandal, Khloe desperately wants things to work and wants to have a complete family.”
Despite this being the first time Tristan’s spoken out on the matter, a couple of members of the family have spoken out about the situation, with the most recent being the matriarch of the family, Kris Jenner.
Speaking to Ellen on Friday May 4, she gave us a much-needed update on how Khloé’s getting on with being a new mum.
“Khloe is amazing. I’m so proud of that kid. I get choked up because she’s such a good mom. Honestly it gets so emotional because – I was in Cleveland last week and it was snowing and she was all nestled in the nursery with the baby… She’s just concentrating on that. Just being a mom, her baby. And I think that’s what her sisters are doing as well.
“She’s so excited about motherhood and trying to get the nursing thing down. She’s trying, she’s really trying. That was a little bit tricky when I was there. She’s figuring it out one day at a time and she’s the best mom already and the baby is so cute, little True.”
She also revealed how dramatic the situation was when True was born, given the circumstances:
“I think we do what we always do and that’s spring into action with love and we all hopped on a plane and flew to Cleveland, because that’s what we know to do. I’m there to support my kids no matter what happens and I just do the best I can just like anybody else would for their family. There’s a lot of us, you know. So we all get together and we do things together and we’re a force to be reckoned with.”
“So we get there and we’re supporting her – she gave birth within hours of us arriving, it was crazy. It very exciting though at the same time.
“I think it was all sort of simultaneously happening. We knew she was going to have the baby within a week and then I brought the doctor. So I brought the doctor on the plane and the nurse practitioner like, ‘we’ve got to get there!’ And then we were calling from the plane going ‘what’s going on’ and they said ‘she just got her epidural’. I didn’t even think we would make it but we did.”
We’re so glad to hear that Khlo is staying focused and is settling into motherhood well.
