Khloe Kardashian Shares How Hard It Was For Her To Keep Her Pregnancy Secret
It’s no secret that Khloe Kardashian is expecting a baby with basketballer boyfriend Tristan Thompson. The couple shared a photo of Khloe and her baby bump on Instagram. It finally put to rest speculations that had begun months earlier about Khloe.
By December 2017, when Khloe shared the now famous baby bump post, she was already in her third trimester. A lot of people are still wondering why she decided to hold on that long before revealing the truth.
Hiding her pregnancy was hard, especially from her family
Khloe was not keen on sharing news of her pregnancy with the public as soon as she found out.
I believe there are certain things that need to be held private and for yourself. It was beautiful to have something that was just ours.
The hard part was keeping it from her family. The Kardashians are a very close-knit family. Their TV show requires that they spend a lot of time together.
Off work, the Kardashian sisters also hang out a lot. But Khloe had to come up with creative ways to stay active and involved, without letting them in on her baby secret. The worst part was dealing with morning sickness and tactically excusing herself.
I’m with my sisters pretty much every single day, so it was hard to not be able to say why I was so sick or couldn’t do certain things.
She also made some adjustments to her wardrobe and took some extra styling lessons to keep her act up. For the first three months, Khloe avoided wearing revealing outfits that would show her middle and expose her growing bump.
I had already let the cat outta the bag when I wore this Whyte Studio coat, but I've worn a million versions of it in the last six months. I almost never left home without one! So comfy - and zero eyes on the bump.
Her other reason for not immediately coming out with the truth is that she wanted to break it to the entire family, and the opportunity never seemed to present itself.
Eventually, Khloe and Tristan were able to have the entire family together and she broke the news. The reveal was also captured on this edition of The Kardashians.
No secret baby names
Unlike her sister, Khloe is not itchy about keeping her baby’s name a secret. Fans have already started asking questions and even making name suggestions.
Speaking to Ellen during her first interview since she broke the news, Khloe said:
If it's a boy, I'll go with Junior...Tristan Jr. For a girl, I don't even know where to begin. I think I want a K or a T.
