There's no debating that the Kardashians are a pretty open bunch. A "ride or die family," they stick together when times get tough and there's no conversation that's off-limits. Which is why Kim Kardashian's confession to Jimmy Kimmel last night is pretty ... surprising. Kim told Jimmy that the family had no idea that Khloe was avoiding getting pregnant with Lamar because their marriage was in trouble.
"She wasn't showing up to these doctor appointments on purpose," said Kim. "Behind our backs because she knew [the marriage] wasn't working."
Wow. This is the family that shares EVERYTHING with one another. A family that has meetings to talk about how they'll handle Kris and Bruce's divorce in public. If Kim's allegations are true, then it seems Khloe was trying to protect her potential child, and well, it makes sense. She didn't want to bring a baby into the world with a man whom she couldn't rely on.
Can you honestly blame her?
Khloe's lucky. Despite all the fame and madness, she has a very supportive family who I have no doubt would have been there for her throughout her entire pregnancy and beyond if she were to have Lamar's child. With that said, though, she didn't want that. Khloe didn't want to raise a child on her own, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Still, she's been very vocal about her desire to have children. It's no secret that Khloe's hormones are off, making it hard for her to conceive. It's no secret that Khloe's getting older. Granted, she has plenty of time to have a healthy baby (she's only 29 right now). But for a woman who wanted a child so badly, it must have been difficult to blow off doctors who were trying to help her have that baby she's wanted for years. And then to keep that emotional struggle inside and hidden from her family, that must have been a nightmare.
Despite all of the madness that's surrounded Khloe's divorce and potential pregnancy, it really does seem that she's happier than ever now. It seems like she's in a good place, and with all of the secrets behind her, she can move forward being open and honest. Do I see children in Khloe's future? For sure. It's safe to say, though, that she's only going to have them once she finds the perfect father to raise them with.
Are you surprised Khloe kept this secret from her family?
