Trust Ellen Degeneres to ask the biggest questions! While appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show Thursday (Jan. 4)—for the first time since she announced her pregnancy in December—Khloé Kardashian opened up to Degeneres about her sister Kylie Jenner’s rumoured pregnancy. Though the reality star kept quiet over whether her sister is also expecting, Degeneres tried her best to get a confirmation, asking: “Is Kylie craving yet? She’s pregnant.” Kardashian replied: “I don’t know what you’re talking about. Come on Ellen!” When Degeneres asked why Jenner wasn’t in the Kardashian Christmas card, Kardashian said: “I don’t know, you’ve got to ask Kylie. Why don’t you get Kylie on the show?”
Kardashian, who is six months pregnant with her first child, did speak about her own bump, though. Degeneres asked Kardashian if she knew the sex, to which she responded: “Not yet,” but the mum-to-be did reveal the couple want to find out. She said: “Yeah. There’s too many surprises in this whole thing that I’m definitely going to know.” She also revealed the pair have started thinking about baby names. “I think if it’s a boy I’ll go with Tristan Junior. For a girl I don’t even know where to begin,” said Kardashian, adding she may follow the family’s initial trend, “I think I’ll go with a K or a T.”
As to why Kardashian chose to announce her news on Instagram, she told Degeneres: “I just wanted to do something myself and write something that was heartfelt from me. I’ve wanted to have a baby for so long and it’s just the perfect timing. God always has his plan and I just want to do it on my time and when I felt comfortable to do so.”
Kardashian revealed that she experienced some sickness at the start of her pregnancy, saying: “At the beginning, the first trimester is the worst, and no one knows you’re pregnant yet and you feel the most uncomfortable.” She added: “Hopefully I look pregnant and not just fat, so people realize if I don’t feel well or tired.” The star also spoke about her partner Tristan Thompson, revealing that he has been “so great during pregnancy” and joking that he has been the one getting the food cravings, not her!
On the subject of whether the pair will marry, Kardashian said: “I hope so but I’m not in a rush for any of that. Right now I’m so happy with the place I’m at in my life and I’m just happy with how things are going. We talk about it for sure but we’re both just happy where we are and what’s meant to be will be.”
