Khloe Kardashian Talks Trying IVF, Says She Wanted a Baby to 'Fix' Her Marriage to Lamar Odom
By Rachel McRady
Spoiler Alert: Kids are not the solution. On Wednesday night’s episode of Kocktails With Khloe, the ever-candid host, Khloe Kardashian, opened up about how she tried to save her marriage to Lamar Odom.
“At the time, I was like , ‘Oh, I have to have a baby!’” she told her guests. “That’s all I wanted at the time, and I thought it would maybe fix the situation [with Odom], so I’m also happy it didn’t happen because I was young. I was 27, and I thought, ‘A baby will fix this,’ and it’s not going to fix that.”
Kardashian,31, added that she tried In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in an attempt to get pregnant.
“I do want to have a baby in my life,” she admitted. “But I’m also, right now in my life, I don’t just want to have a baby. I still want to have my family.”
Kardashian is currently single after splitting with NBA star James Harden earlier this year. She is still legally married to Odom, who is in recovery after being found unresponsive this fall. The pair have since been spending lots of time together as she helped him through his hospital stint and now his rehab.
Opening up about that time on her show, Kardashian revealed that the range of emotions she was going through ended up botching her lip fillers.
"I looked crazy, and I still think the effects are in there! I went to have it dissolved like three times,” she said, adding that her doctor had told her the results were off because she was experiencing too many "real emotions."
“My face was so f**ked,” she said.
In February, Odom made his first appearance since the incident at Kanye West’s Yeezy fashion show in New York City, with Kardashian by his side. The reality star recently penned a blog post about the importance of keeping her exes close.
"If it's a relationship that served a purpose in my life, like Lamar, why wouldn't I want them in my life afterwards?" she wrote. "Just because you break up with someone doesn't mean you lose that connection."
