The 33-year-old star has been enjoying a trip to Japan with her sisters Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian ahead of giving birth to her baby in the next few weeks and it seems the reality star is making the most of her pregnancy binges by indulging in some Japanese comfort food.
Khloe took to her Instagram stories to post a picture in a glamorous pyjama-style shirt, dangling noodles in her mouth and captioned the image: “In my element.”
The ‘Revenge Body’ star posted a picture on Instagram with a caption that read: “My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can’t believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!
“Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we’ve been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us. Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it’s the best bundle of feelings I’ve ever felt in my life!”
And the moment Khloe realised she was pregnant was captured on cameras for an episode of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ where she revealed a positive test to her assistant, Alexa Okyle.
Khloe was unable to contain her excitement as she stared at the test, but she decided to hold off on sharing the news with her family until she and Tristan could do it together.
She said in the episode: “I am pregnant. I don’t want anyone to know because I wanna tell them when I’m with Tristan.
“I am super nervous, but really excited. There’s a million different emotions that are going through my brain but I think I’m almost in a state of shock.
“I almost can’t believe it but then it’s good shock.”
Khloe admitted she has experienced a whole range of emotions during her pregnancy, and at times she has found it “physically and mentally trying” but she praised her partner for making everything “as easy and beautiful as it can be”.
She shared: “Having a partner that is equally as excited as you are, and is such a support system, is crucial! Tristan has been an angel to me! This process is trying – physically and mentally – but Tristan has made everything as easy and beautiful as it can be! More than I could have imagined …
“Tristan was the one who kept telling me, ‘I think you’re pregnant!’ He was leaving town to go back to Toronto and I went to get a pregnancy test. I actually had to FaceTime him to tell him. I was nervous and he was so excited! Of course, it’s such a blessing and such an exciting thing – but I do believe your initial reaction is always nerves.
“I’m so blessed that Tristan has been beyond supportive! He’s helped me overcome any fear or anxiety that I have! He’s always so reassuring and confident about everything when it comes to our baby.”
However, Khloe is now feeling “healthy and strong” in her third trimester after suffering with health struggles at the start of her pregnancy.
She posted: “I am so thankful that after my first trimester… my pregnancy has been so healthy and strong! God is great! Much luck to you and your family. (sic)”
Khloe revealed she had to take pills to overcome her low levels of progesterone- a hormone that helps in preventing miscarriages in early pregnancy- and that the medicine left her feeling “gross”.
She said: “Literally, I can’t walk. I just feel sick every night. I feel gross.”
Although the star managed to overcome the initial trouble, she admitted in the episode that the complications that come with pregnancy is one of the reasons she was reluctant to share the news with the world straight away.
She said: “This is one example of why you don’t announce early. There’s a lot of complications. As soon as I get to my second trimester, I’ll have such relief and that’s what I’m waiting for.”
Meanwhile, the Kardashian sister has admitted that she wants to follow in the footsteps of older sister Kim Kardashian West by eating her placenta- an organ that develops in the uterus during pregnancy to protect the baby- after she gives birth.
In a clip from her interview on the show, she said: “I’m going to eat it in pills”.
Kim had Joni Lucarelli turn her placenta into pills when she gave birth to Saint in 2015, revealing that she chose “grape flavour” for the tablets that she claims gave her “a surge of energy”.
Kim said: “My placenta was like double the size, it was really oddly big, so she gave me two jars [of pills]”
“I had great results and felt so energised and didn’t have any signs of depression…Every time I take a pill, I feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good.”
Despite her strange pregnancy cravings and plans for her placenta post-birth, Khloe – who regularly films her workouts with older sister Kourtney- has admitted she is excited to get back into the gym and work off her baby weight, although she’s not currently concerned about what she’s been eating during her pregnancy.
In a post on her app, she shared: “During my pregnancy, I’m obviously not beating myself up about what I’m eating at all. I’m more encouraged by how, after the baby comes, I’m going to work off every pound.
“I’m actually really excited to get my body back. I can’t wait! Of course, I can’t go as hard as I did before, and I really do miss my intense workouts. Honestly, though, I’m just happy I still have the energy!”
