It’s a busy time for Khloe Kardashian’s tabloid presence. She’s been dating the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Tristan Thompson for a year, which means the marriage gossip is ascendant; Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ most recent season finale ended with scenes suggesting that Khloe may be infertile, so pregnancy stories follow her at every public appearance. Most recently, she appeared to use insiders to suggest that she wants a “natural baby,” and is willing to go to great lengths to get one–this in response to claims that big sister Kim has been trying to get her to use a surrogate.
Now, a new report from Life & Style takes the Khloe Kardashian motherhood rumors right up to the brink of declaring that she’s actually pregnant. According to their take, Khloe is “not using birth control and would be so excited if she got pregnant.” There’s no new information about whether Khloe and Tristan are actually trying to have a baby together, but Life & Style’s sister publication In Touch was responsible for the “natural baby” story, so it’s likely that the more recent article is meant to relay the first.
And, in related news, Khloe is said to be “the happiest she’s ever been”–so happy, in fact, that she’s “planning to announce her and Tristan’s engagement over Christmas.”
Back on the baby front, Hollywood Life’s insider doubled down by saying that a baby with Tristan is Khloe’s “biggest wish,” and that she “doesn’t even care” if the two are married beforehand. (Which lends credence to speculation that the Christmas “engagement” might actually be a wedding announcement after the ceremony has already happened, and a KUWTK special to follow shortly thereafter.)
Khloe is so baby-crazy, she already has a name picked out: Andrea–after Tristan’s mom–if it’s a girl. The topic of a baby boy is apparently anathema: “[Tristan] has all boys in his family…so Khloe feels that having a little girl would give him an amazing, new experience.”
In unrelated news, here’s how Khloe and Tristan spent at least part of their Labor Day weekend:
