Khloe Kardashian Turned to Fertility Treatments to Save Troubled Marriage
Khloe Kardashian thought getting pregnant would save her marriage to Lamar Odom.
The 31-year-old reality star tied the knot with the former basketball player in 2009, however they separated in December 2013.
Around two years after the wedding, rumors started circulating suggesting Odom was cheating on Kardashian and using drugs, so she tried everything to prevent a breakup.
And on Wednesday’s episode of her talk show Kocktails with Khloe, she revealed to her guests she even underwent IVF treatment as an attempt to keep them together.
“I do want to have a baby,” she said. “I’ve tried IVF and all that.”
Kardashian confessed the desperation she felt to save her marriage prompted an almost primal urge to get pregnant.
“Right now in my life, I don’t want to just have a baby. I still want to have like my family… but at the time I was, like, ugh, gotta have a baby,” she described. “That’s all I wanted at that time.”
“I thought maybe it (getting pregnant) would, like, fix the situation.”
In hindsight, Kardashian thinks the way she suffered to conceive was silly and immature.
“I’m also happy it didn’t happen because I was young,” she said. “I was 27 and I thought ‘oh my god a baby will fix this.'”
“(But) It’s not going to fix that,” she sighed.
Although she has previously insisted they are no longer romantically involved, Kardashian is still legally married to Odom – she put their divorce on hold to nurse him back to health after he fell into a coma following a drug overdose in a Nevada brothel last October. Since their split just over two years ago, Kardashian has had failed relationships with rapper French Montana and professional athlete James Harden.
