Everything New Mom Khloé Kardashian Has Said About Becoming a Mother
"I’ve never had to juggle a baby and work at the same time, so it’ll be interesting to see how I’ll learn to handle everything. Women do it every single day, so I know I’ll get through it — I’m just anxious because it’s the unknown."
— on her first day back to work since becoming a mom, on her website and app
"It was really hard for me to stop (emotionally) but it wasn’t working for my body. Sadly."
— sharing she stopped breastfeeding, in a series of tweets
“I don’t know how I’m going to leave her all day tomorrow. That’s freaking me out. But I got to go back to work at some point. So I’ll be okay, right mama? I don’t know what to do because I love our routine together."
— admitting she feels anxious about returning to work, on Snapchat
"I can't believe my baby will be a month old tomorrow. Why does this make me happy and sad all at the same time. Thank you Jesus for my sweet peanut."
— on how fast daughter True is growing, on Twitter
“I don’t feel like I need to prepare for my birth by freaking myself out. I’ve seen over eight births live and in person. Women were made to do this! It’s a very natural experience. I read my apps every day and I ask my doctor if I have any questions, so I’m honestly not that afraid. Of course I’m a little nervous to go into labor, but I’m trying to not overthink something that literally happens all the time.”
— revealing she was not afraid of childbirth, on her website and app
"I am now so excited my daughter will have forever best friends with Chicago and Stormi!! God is great!!! Thank you Lord for our princess."
— expressing her happiness upon learning expecting a baby girl, on Keeping Up with the Kardashians
“When you have your mind made up as to what you’re having… everyone told me you’re going to feel what you’re having and you’ll just kind of know. And then when you find out it’s the complete opposite, it’s just a shock.”
— on finding out she was having a girl, on Keeping Up with the Kardashians
"The very beginning is challenging because you feel so out-of-place … and I think you're the most sick and no one knows you're pregnant. I'm not sure what the end is going to be like, but for right now, I’m doing pretty well."
— on how she was handling pregnancy, on ITV's Lorraine
"I thought about it at one point then it just didn’t cross my mind, so when I got pregnant I was so surprised."
— on considering surrogacy, on ITV's Lorraine
"Tristan was the one who kept telling me, 'I think you're pregnant!' He was leaving town to go back to Toronto and I went to get a pregnancy test. I actually had to FaceTime him to tell him. I was nervous and he was so excited!"
— on how she told boyfriend Tristan Thompson she was pregnant, on her website

— on how boyfriend Tristan Thompson "has been so supportive," on her website
"I’m with my sisters pretty much every single day, so it was hard to not be able to say why I was so sick or couldn’t do certain things ... I believe there are certain things that need to be held private and for yourself. It was beautiful to have something that was just ours."
— on the reason she kept her pregnancy under wraps, on her website
"I've wanted to have a baby for so long it's just the perfect timing. God always has a plan and I just wanted to do it on my time and when I felt comfortable to do so."
— on expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

— opening up about boyfriend Tristan Thompson, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
"I think if it's a boy I'll go with Junior — Tristan Jr. Then for a girl, I don't know where to begin."
— on her baby boy name pick, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
"At the beginning, the first trimester is the worst and no one knows you’re pregnant yet and you feel the most uncomfortable. I think once people know you’re pregnant, you get all the excuses. Hopefully I look pregnant, not just fat. It’s hard for me to breathe right now."
— on the struggles of pregnancy, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
"I'm gonna try to not wear maternity clothes as long as possible."
— on keeping her current style, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
“My house is the fun house for my nieces and nephews. We do arts and crafts and bake a lot. We like to play outside and in the pool, just being goofy. I have water balloons and we have water fights. I’m like a big kid myself. At night when I babysit them we have dance parties. I love to give their moms the evening off.”
— on being a "fun aunt" to YOU magazine
"Tristan and I are both Christians; we go to church, we pray, we're vocal about God and spirituality. A lot of my girlfriends get pregnant without talking about things such as religion with their significant others and then find they have different belief systems to them."
— on their shared values, to YOU magazine
"I definitely want a family, but I don’t feel any pressure. Tristan is a great dad and he definitely wants more children, but we both feel that it will happen when the time is right. We're still in a new relationship and I love us having time together. Once you have kids you can't get back your non-kid years...You worry about your children for the rest of your life. The concern I have is raising little human beings in a world that's filled with such hate and terror. That seems very scary."
— opening up about starting a family with Thompson, in an interview with YOU magazine in August 2017
"Tristan and I definitely talk about starting a family. He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that’s lovely. We could start at one and we could grow from there."
— during a 2017 show teaser
“I knew it wasn’t the right situation to bring a child into, and I think I’ve done a lot of covering up for him — even when it made me look like I was the problem. But I was fine taking on that burden on my shoulders, because he had a lot of other deeper s— to deal with.”
— on why she decided not to have kids with Odom, Keeping Up with the Kardashians
“I was married, but I knew the circumstances weren’t the healthiest so I just kept pretending I was doing it. When I was doing my fertility treatments, they were more so for Lamar. I had to stop because there was much deeper stuff that was happening in our marriage.”
— revealing that she "fake tried" to have kids with Odom, on the season 9 finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians
"My greatest wish is to grow up and be as fantastic as a mother as you have been to us!"
— wishing mom Kris Jenner a happy birthday on Instagram
“Shut the f— up. This is definitely not all how I thought this appointment was going to go. What if I can’t get pregnant?”
— responding to a doctor revealing that she has fewer follicles in her uterus than most women her age, on Keeping Up With the Kardashians
"I want to have kids and maybe to be remarried one day. I need to move on, and I will be filing for divorce very soon."
— on moving on after Odom's near-fatal overdose on Keeping Up With the Kardashians in June 2016
“I feel like I’ve been pregnant for six years! I used to get offended, like, ‘Do I look fat today?’ or ‘Why are they saying that?’ But they just say it. Before I was like, ‘Do I have a baby bump? Is my belly sticking out?’ But no. I mean, one day the rumor will be true, I hope, but who knows? Until then, it is what it is.”
— on dealing with pregnancy rumors, to PEOPLE in 2014
"About a year ago, we were like, 'Let's just see what happens.' And then when it didn't happen, Kim was like, 'Let's go to the doctor.' I found out I don't ovulate. My uterus lining isn't thick enough and I have to take pills to make my uterus lining thicker. If that doesn't get thicker, then I cannot carry a baby."
— opening up for the first time about starting a family with then-husband Lamar Odom in a 2013 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians
