Khloe Kardashian has always wanted to be a mom.
The 33-year-old reality star talks about expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson in an interview that aired on ITV's Lorraine on Thursday, and says she thought about other options before she got pregnant. In an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians last June, Khloe openly worried about possibly having fertility struggles.
"I thought about surrogacy at one point, but then it just didn’t cross my mind," she reveals. "When I got pregnant, I was just so surprised. ... I was just in shock, I think as much as everybody else was."
Khloe says she's definitely "ready" for the big new step in her life.
"I think it puts so many things into perspective," she says about parenthood. "And so many people say, ‘Once you have a baby, your life just begins, and you’re going to realize everything you were doing was nonsense.’ But honestly, I’m just so happy this is happening in my life right now. People always say, ‘When you’re ready, you’ll have a baby.’ I feel so ready."
Khloe is later asked if her pregnancy has changed her strained relationship with Caitlyn Jenner, and she shares that there's been no change on that front.
"I don’t think that affects anything with Caitlyn," she shares. "[Things are] just as they are."
ET spoke to Khloe last month while she was promoting season two of her show, Revenge Body, when she talked about how she's been maintaining her healthy lifestyle during her pregnancy. Khloe commented on some of the backlash she's received for continuing to work out while pregnant.
"It's bizarre to me that people don't want me to be happy and stay healthy and fit," Khloe said. "My doctor wants me to work out every day if I could, so I'm doing doctor's orders and I feel good."
She also admitted to being annoyed at her famous sisters' parenting advice.
"I've gotten to the point... I'm like, 'OK, shut the f**k up and take your own advice,'" she bluntly said. "Like, I love Kourtney, but... I'm going to figure it all out, I promise you. We're all going to learn. So some advice is great, but it's also not what you say, it's how you say it."
