As her marriage to Lamar Odom began to crumble, Khloe Kardashian put her baby plans on hold. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, Jan. 23, Kim Kardashian revealed that sister Khloe wasn’t trying to have a baby with her now-estranged husband.
« For so long, everyone in our family was feeling really sad for Khloe thinking that she wasn’t getting pregnant and everyone around her was, » Kim, 33, explained to host Jimmy Kimmel. « And the whole time, she wasn’t trying to and she was not showing up to these doctors appointments behind our back on purpose. »
After four years of marriage, Khloe, 29, filed for divorce from Odom, 34, following revelations of his drug use and cheating.
« She knew it wasn’t right and she knew she wasn’t ready, » Kim said Thursday of Khloe not wanting to get pregnant. « So now we understand it and we understand her decisions, it’s very clear. »
Khloe publicly discussed struggling with infertility both on and off camera. She was shown going to fertility specialists on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and learning that she wasn’t ovulating in a September 2012 episode. Khloe also was seen on camera in March 2013 telling her family that she had tried to get pregnant « since I married Lamar. »
In the June 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan UK, however, Khloe said she wasn’t in a rush to start a family.
« I’ll have to take hormones, » she said of trying to conceive. « I do want to have a baby, but I don’t feel the urgency to have one this very moment. »

She was not ready to tell us everything so she stopped treatment without telling us. » she wrote
