Khloé Kardashian has been open and honest about her struggle to conceive, but despite her disappointment she says that she believes it will happen when the time is right.
“It’s frustrating when you hear so many rumors because it makes you almost want to put pressure on yourself,” the 27-year-old reality star tells People. “But looking back, I think everything happens for a reason.”
In light of her husband Lamar Odom‘s surprising trade to the Dallas Mavericks, Khloé says she’s actually glad that they didn’t have the additional stress of a newborn during that difficult time.
“I think, ‘Gosh, what if I did get pregnant last season or a few months ago?’” she says. “Or what if I had a newborn baby and all this [NBA] trade stuff happened? I don’t think I could have dealt with everything at one time. Doing this trade and my husband’s emotions and going through all that is so stressful.”
She says that she and Lamar are “definitely trying” for a baby, but they’re trying not to put quite so much pressure on themselves these days.
“Maybe Dallas will bring a baby,” she muses. “We’re definitely trying to have kids. Everything will happen when it’s meant to be. Last season, we were much more documenting, ‘Okay, when am I ovulating, when am I doing this?’ And it was very stressful to do it that way, so we’ve stopped. Lamar and I definitely are letting nature take its course.”
