Kris Jenner has admitted she was ‘ecstatically surprised’ when Khloe Kardashiantold her she was pregnant because she believed her daughter would never have any children of her own.
Monday’s special back-to-back episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians titled Bun In The Oven saw Khloe tell the family that she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, leading to emotional scenes.
Kris, 62, struggled to hold back tears as she revealed: ‘Hearing this news is the most special thing I think anyone can ever tell me. I’m ecstatically surprised.’
The mother-of-six explained: ‘I always thought that maybe Khloe would be one of those women who didn’t have kids and I struggled with that.
‘It made me really sad because there was no one that was born to do this more than Khloe.’
During a June episode of KUWTK, Khloe learned that she had fewer follicles, which hold eggs, than expected for a woman her age, which would suggest she would have trouble conceiving.
She previously admitted that she had taken hormone therapy and tried to get pregnant with ex-husband Lamar Odom via IVF but the results were unsuccessful.
Elsewhere in the episode, Khloe revealed how she wept tears telling Tristan Thompson she was pregnant.
The 33-year-old reality TV star admitted she was ‘freaking out’ when the pregnancy test came back positive, but described it as a ‘good shock’.
When her assistant Alexa Okyle commented how much Tristan had been wanting children, Khloe grinned: ‘I know. We put it in the universe. It’s totally a blessing. It’s just really real.’
Khloe was also seen breaking the news of her pregnancy to executive assistant Alexa before she told her family.
As Khloe held up the positive test, a shocked Alexa declared: ‘Oh my god. There are two lines.’
‘Yeah,’ Khloe smiled. ‘Clear as day. I’m pregnant. I am and I felt that I was.’
Khloe explained how she had FaceTimed with Tristan to break the news while he was in Toronto, but their connection was so bad he could not see the test she was holding up.
When she told him she was pregnant, he asked: ‘Oh my god. Are you kidding or are you serious?’
Khloe continued: ‘I said ”I’m serious” and then I started crying. He said ”are you crying?” and I was like ”I’m crying, I don’t know what’s happening”.’
Addressing the camera, an elated Khloe said: ‘I’m super nervous, but really excited. There’s a million different emotions that are going on in my brain. I think I’m in a state of shock. I almost can’t believe it, but a good shock.
