Khloe Kardashian admits she was depressed during her son’s pregnancy

In the latest episode of “The Kardashians” on Hulu, Khloe Kardashian admits she had a tough time with her mental health during her son’s pregnancy. Khloe, who welcomed her son via surrogate in July, has opened up about the “trauma” she suffered as a result of Tristan Thompson’s infidelity.

“Since December, this dark cloud has been hanging over me,” she explains during an emotional confession. “Every day I feel depressed and sad and now that my son is here I can go ahead and enjoy it. It’s almost like I’m closing this chapter and I’m done with this trauma and getting it over with.”

The season one finale of The Kardashians ended with Khloe finding out that her partner Tristan Thompson (whom she was very “on again” with while they decided to father their second child) was expecting a baby with a other woman. Heartbreakingly, Khloe says the embryo transfer happened just days before news of his infidelity broke. Again.


During the Season 2 premiere, Khloe talks about how difficult it was to learn not only that Thompson had cheated on her, but that he knew he’d gotten someone else pregnant and never told her. All this time they hoped to have a second child together.

“There’s such a dark cloud around something that’s supposed to be so joyful,” Khloe says in the premiere. “I was definitely very angry and I think I felt confused. In retrospect, he always knew when the other baby was born, and especially when he got the paperwork we saw. He found out on July 2, so he knew.”

Khloe’s surrogate underwent the embryo transfer in November last year, and in December she learned she was expecting the couple’s son. She admits she was also very concerned about the public criticism she would face once the news broke that she and Thompson were going to have a child shortly after he was expecting a child from someone else.

“It’s so close that I don’t want anyone to think afterwards that I did it,” she says. “Why would I want to have a baby with someone who has a baby with someone else? Because I’m not that sociopath. I’m a madman I’m not insane.”

Khloe also admitted the stress she suffered in the final weeks of her first pregnancy with daughter True caused her to go into labor a few weeks early – the first time she found out Thompson had been unfaithful . She says she is really concerned about all the publicity surrounding her son’s existence and how it will affect him in the future.

“I don’t think that’s the way to talk about kids and you just want to protect this innocent being that had nothing to do with it and I just don’t want that energy to be around my kids,” she explains.

Thankfully, Khloe says that with the support of her family and time to process her feelings, she’s finally healed and ready to embrace her life as a mother of two, despite the chaos surrounding his conception and pregnancy.

“Now I can finally start the healing process. Now I can start enjoying my life with two kids in it and find that out,” she says. “That will be day one, and that will be the start of something positive, happy and beautiful.”
