She’s looking forward to the birth of her first child. But Kim Kardashian has revealed that her unplanned pregnancy was ‘a miracle’ – as she has secretly battled fertility issues. ‘It’s kind of a miracle that I even got pregnant,’ she told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda on the Today show on Tuesday. She had earlier explained on the Today Show: ‘Khloe has been very open about her fertility issues and I think I was always really kind of quiet about mine, and I have similar issues.’
Kim’s younger sister Khloe has openly talked about her distress following her failure to conceive during three years of marriage, with initial tests revealing she was not ovulating. Meanwhile Kim has been dating her boyfriend Kanye West for nine months and is expecting their baby in July. Kim Kardashian explained of her pregnancy: ‘It was a pleasant surprise when so many doctors were telling me one thing and then the opposite happens.’ The 32-year-old said she found it hard to believe she was really going to be a mother.
‘I think until I really start seeing, like, a belly, it won’t really sink in. It’s just like a weird realisation until you really start seeing the physical changes, um, and every day’s different.’ However their is one thing disrupting KIm’s perfect life – her failed marriage to Kris Humphries. Despite filing for divorce from the basketball player after just 72 days in 2011, the two have yet to finalise their divorce. Kris has refused to sign papers ending the marriage. On the Today Show Kim explained: ‘I can’t speak for anyone else [about why Kris hasn’t signed]. It’s a process… It’s happening, hopefully.’
She further explained to Kathie Lee and Hoda that she had waited six months after their split before dating again, and felt that was long enough. ‘I’m 32 years old,’ she said, adding that viewers would see more of this on her show. She also talked about the possibility of a third marriage, to her rapper boyfriend. ‘It’s something that we talk about, but I think it’s just, right now, focusing on the baby,’ said Kim. ‘[I’m] so content with how things are right now. And how life is and we’re so happy. We definitely want that in the future, but I’m not in a rush. ‘What I’ve learned in life is – I was always such a planner, and… you think your life is going to be a certain way, and the best surprises just happen when you don’t plan.’
The baby news was made public when Kanye, 35, announced it on stage during a concert on December 30. While Kim was surprised he announced her pregnancy, she was happy for him to do so. She said: ‘Once you’re past the three-month mark, you’re pretty safe, so he just kind of goes off with what he feels and he was feeling it that night.’ Kim wore a black dress which showed off her toned legs for her TV interview. She was with her sister Kourtney, who wore a clinging leather dress as they promoted their reality show Kourtney And Kim Take Miami. It was hard work for Kim, who tweeted: ‘Got 2.5 hours of sleep! I can never sleep my 1st night in NYC. Off to do the Today Show soon, the Kelly & Michael with @KourtneyKardash!’
After their early morning spot on the Today Show the sisters moved on to film Live With Kelly And Michael. They switched their black outfits for more colourful creations, with Kim choosing a yellow dress, teamed with red lipstick, and Kourtney a red patterned blouse and white jeans. She might be expecting, but Kim looked as on trend as ever in her peplum dress with side cut outs and nude court shoes. – Dailymail
