Khloé Kardashian is not a mom just yet — and she’s more than okay with that.
The reality star covers the June issue of Redbook and opens up about her pregnancy woes in the accompanying interview.
“People assume I’m desperate for a baby. And yes, I would love to have a baby. But I’m 28, and I’ve been married three and a half years. I love my life, but it doesn’t feel incomplete right now,” says Khloé, who flaunts her svelte figure in a form-fitting pink dress on the issue.

She shares, “I do think my difficulty getting pregnant has helped a lot of women. Do I wish people would quit asking me about it 24/7? Yes, but I don’t regret it. I was 26 when that started, and I admit, I didn’t know a lot about my body. It was hard for me to understand what was happening because my mom had six kids and Kourtney [Kardashian] got pregnant quickly.”
Khloé has always been vocal about her problems with getting pregnant. And she clarifies that it’s not about having fertility issues, saying, “it’s more about my hormones being off.”
“I was taking hormone shots to stabilize them, and you have to take those shots consistently and they have to be done by a doctor—you can do them yourself, but I couldn’t,” she explains. “And then after your cycle, you have to go to the doctor for ultrasounds and more testing. And if I’m in Miami and miss a treatment, I have to start all over again. It’s a commitment and I don’t mind doing it, but the timing was just off.”

While her sisters seem to have had an easier time starting families — Kim is seven months pregnant and Kourtney is mom to son Mason, 3, and daughter Penelope, 10 months — she doesn’t resent them in the slightest.
In fact, she can’t wait to become an aunt for the third time when Kim gives birth this summer.
“Please. People want to assume that I’m devastated,” she says on rumors that she was upset with her older sister announcing her pregnancy late last year. “I couldn’t be happier. I actually got mad at Kourtney, because she was afraid to tell me at first. So I get why people think I’m hurt, because my own sister thought I would be.”

Though trying for a baby is on the backburner at the moment, Khloé has a lot to be happy about. As Life & Style recently reported, the E! personality has lost an amazing 30 pounds after sticking to a new diet and workout routine.
“Everything in moderation,” Khloé tells Life & Style about her new lifestyle. “Right now, I try to go on hikes or something. I work out at least four to five days a week. At least, I try."
