Khloe Kardashian is hilarious, irreverent and an inspiration to the more than 70 million fans that follow her on Instagram. After dealing with a painful and very public split from former NBA player Lamar Odom, the reality star made a conscious decision to put herself first.
She recently posted before and after pictures on Instagram along with the caption, "Sometimes it's hard for me to post these transformation posts only because I can't imagine my life being this unhealthy again. Never would I ever consider myself fat, but I would consider myself unhealthy mentally [and] physically and not knowing my true value: mind, body and soul."
Khloe continued, "For me, my transformation journey started from within. I needed to heal myself from the inside out. Once I started putting myself first, everything started falling into place. My life transformed a few years ago when I made the decision to stop existing and start living. I decided when I was ready regardless of what anybody else was saying about me...I had to do this on my terms or I knew it wouldn't last. It's okay to take control back. Choose your life. Don't let anybody else decide for you!"
Khloe is now madly in love with her basketball star beau Tristan Thompson, and the two are expecting a baby together. Her impending arrival will have plenty of cousins to play with. Kim and Kanye are expecting a baby girl, due to arrive via gestational carrier later this month, and it's been widely reported that Kylie and her boyfriend Travis Scott will welcome a child to the world in the near future.
We can't get enough of Khloe, her inspirational story, her on point fashion choices or her gorgeous, growing bump. Below you will find 15 pics of pregnant Khloe that we simply adore.
15 Late Night Lady
After recently confirming the exciting rumors that she has a little one on the way, Khloe has made a few notable television appearances to discuss her impending arrival. Her most recent interview was with Jimmy Kimmel. The star looked radiant in blue when she sat down with Kimmel to chat about her baby-to-be.
Kimmel joked, "Who do you call first when you find out you're pregnant? Ryan Seacrest?"
Laughing, Khloe quipped, "He's my second call." She then revealed to Kimmel that the first person she called after discovering she was preggers was her love, Tristan Thompson.
Khloe then dished, "So it was Alexa, my assistant, Tristan and I -- we were the only ones that knew for a few weeks until I was able to tell my family."
The reality star went on to tell Kimmel that the early weeks and months of her pregnancy were documented for the hit E! show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. This led him to inquire, "So the crew knew you were pregnant before your sisters knew you were pregnant?"
"They did, yes," Khloe replied. "I've known the crew since 2007. We've had pretty much essentially the same crew, and they've been involved in so much -- the best and the worst of our lives...And they keep quiet."
14 Sweet Smooch
Khloe shared the adorable shot above on Instagram in celebration of reaching the six month mark in her pregnancy. She captioned the shot, "Mom and Dad."
We love this pic for so many reasons. The Good American designer's dress is accentuating her voluptuous curves in all the right places, her hair is styled in wild, ravishing curls and, let's be honest, who doesn't love a good kissing pic ever now and then? The parents-to-be look more in love than ever, and their little one is lucky to have such devoted parents.
Speaking about the moment she finally revealed she and Tristan's big news to her family, Khloe explained to Kimmel, "[Tristan] was out of the country, and we wanted to tell everyone together. It's actually all caught on Keeping Up, which I'm excited about because everyone -- they get to see all the stuff I was going through without them knowing."
13 The Official Announcement
One picture we just can't get over for obvious reasons is the beautiful shot Khloe posted to social media when she finally confirmed that she and Thompson were expecting a baby together. The lengthy caption accompanying the shot was heartfelt, sincere and proof that Khloe is over-the-moon about her impending arrival.
She wrote, "My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what he was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life!"
"Tristan, thank you for loving me the way you do," Khloe continued. "Thank you for treating me like a Queen...Thank you for making me so happy, my love!"
Khloe then addressed her many fans, writing, "Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes. I know we've been keeping this quiet, but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends for as long as we could privately...Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous eager overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the bests bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life!"
12 Hiding The Bump With Photoshop?
Khloe posted pic of herself and her man above to Instagram last year, and soon had the world abuzz, even though the photo is one that, at least at first glance, appears to be baby bump-less. Some observant fans were quick to point out that the shot had been altered, possibly in order to conceal a bump. This photo became one of the first clues that Khloe had a baby on the way.
One fan commented on the photo, "That Photoshop is horrible. Look at his hand the bottom of her pant leg...and if you zoom in, what happened to his hand?" Whether Khloe was already with child when the above photo was snapped, or whether her baby-to-be was still a twinkle in her eye at the time of the shot, it's obvious that Khlo and her baby daddy are all about each other.
When asked what she and Tristan did to keep their bond impenetrable, Khloe shared, "I think with any relationship the key is to always have respect for one another. There are no winners in fighting. If you win, that means your partner loses, so that's not really a win for you, is it? Be the one to change first. While it takes two to couple up, it takes only one to make things a whole lot better."
11 Looking Wonderful In White
Another photo of pregnant Khloe we just adore is one she posted to Instagram following her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She captioned the shot, "My Ellen Show look...Bigger the hair, smaller the bump! LOL, it's all about proportions! Glam killed it!"
When Ellen asked Khloe about her cravings, she revealed, "I don't get when people are eating for two full-sized people. My mom is one of those people. She bought me eight boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and got mad that I didn't eat them all. I said, 'What human being can eat eight boxes?' She said she did when she was pregnant and that's why she gained 80 pounds."
Khloe appeared on the daytime talk show expecting to give the world all the deets on her impending arrival, but found herself instead dodging questions when the conversation steered towards the rumors that her little sis Kylie also has a bun in her oven.
Ellen first asked what Kylie was currently craving, to which Khloe responded awkwardly, "What do you mean?"
"She's pregnant," Ellen retorted.
"Oh, I don't know what you're talking about," Khloe responded. She then added, "Um, I don't know. You gotta ask Kylie. Why don't you get Kylie on the show?"
10 Glowing Girl
Khloe captioned this absolutely stunning shot, which she shared on Instagram, "Merry Christmas! May you sparkle and shine this festive season, may all of your wishes and dreams come true. I pray that we all may feel this happiness all year round. God bless you! #BabyBump" The outfit she's rocking is pure perfection, and fits her perfectly. She's proving that just because a woman is pregnant, it doesn't mean she can't look all sorts of fabulous.
Khloe appears to confident in and comfortable with her pregnant body, but she recently revealed on Snapchat that there is one thing she's worried about: developing an outie belly button. She told her followers, "I have such a phobia with belly buttons, and I know when you're really pregnant your innie becomes an outie...I can't even think about that. I'm so grossed out by that. Ew."
The mom-to-be continued, "I'm so freaked out that's going to happen to me. I'm assuming everyone's belly button does that, I don't know. I wonder if mine has to. Does it have to become an outie? Holy cow."
9 Out And About
The pic above of pregnant Khloe was captured at LAX before she had officially confirmed she was expecting. This may be why the star is coyly covering her belly with a huge handbag and her giant fur coat.
Interestingly enough, the matchy-matchy fur coats she and her man share led to another one of the first clues their fans got that they were expecting a baby together. When Tristan was asked about their matching outerwear at a press event, his teammate J.R. Smith made a joke about getting an infant-sized one. After Smith made his remark, Tristan acted miffed and like he wasn't really sure how to respond.
Maybe it wasn't cool for Tristan's buddy to sorta let the cat out of the bag about his baby news, but we can't deny that we love the idea of a tiny fur coat for he and Khloe's impending arrival.
8 Fit Mom-to-be
Khloe has famously gotten into fabulous shape over the past few years, and has continued her strict fitness regime even as her baby grows. She recently shared one of her grueling workouts on Snapchat, impressing her many adoring fans, and inspiring others to exercise while expecting.
In 2009, the star told Life and Style, "Everyone criticizes me about my weight all the time. It's easy for me to be like some other girls in Hollywood--not eat and become anorexic--but thank goodness I am strong-willed and secure with myself."
Since losing weight, Khloe has said, "I used to be someone that they would label as 'plus-size,' and f*** that. I don't want to be called that! I'm a woman with curves...I was very proud of who I was and I felt so shamed. I still don't think I was big. I know I was bigger than I am now, but I was like, 'I am sexy and hot.'"
She recently wrote on her official website, "I'm proud of my body. My body weight will always be something that I'll struggle with for the rest of my life, but I'm finally in a good place and learning to love me for me and not somebody else's standards."
7 Classy Khloe
Khloe is pictured above arriving on the Kimmel set. Even before she got all glammed up for the cameras, her pregnancy style was classy and sophisticated while also being slightly sexy. When it comes to being pregnant, it seems she's a natural, but, according to the star, she's getting all kids of advice from her sisters, whether she wants it or not.
Kimmel asked Khloe if she was getting pointers from Kourtney and Kim. She responded with a smirk, then shared, "Kourtney gives a lot of advice, and I think it's so sweet, but I don't want to do some of that stuff."
According to Khloe, her big sis Kourt has advised against having a television in the baby's nursery and has warned Khloe not to give her baby-to-be plastic toys to play with. She told Kimmel, "I'm like, if someone buys blocks, I'm allowed to have f***ing blocks. Like, let me experience things. It's either her way or no way, so I'm trying to -- it's not what you say, it's how you say it. We've been fighting a lot lately, and we never fight."
6 Celebrating The Six Month Mark
As mentioned above, Khloe celebrated reaching the six month mark in her pregnancy by posting pictures of herself and her man looking absolutely stunning and more in love than ever. We can't get enough of the solo shot above. Her curve-hugging black dress and her hair cascading down around her shoulders in wild curls are two reasons we love it. The fur coat she's wrapped in only makes the shot more alluring and luxurious.
She has shared that she plans to deliver her little one in Cleveland, Ohio, the place her man resides due to his contract with the Cavaliers.
Speaking about Tristan, Kimmel asked Khloe, "If he's got a game that night, will he miss the game? Have you said, 'You better be in that room when the baby comes no matter what's going on,' or is it up in the air?"
She replied, "I haven't said that. I just kind of assumed that was known. You have to say that? No. He has to be there."
5 Under Wraps
The picture above of Khloe looking classy and chic was snapped before her pregnancy had been officially confirmed. Even though the star hadn't admitted to her pregnancy yet, many were already speculating the beauty had a baby bump when the shot was snapped. She is most definitely glowing in the photo, a sure-fire sign she has a bun in her oven.
The mom-to-be looks flawless in a Chanel jacket and fitted black pants. Her gold necklaces and the effortless waves of her hair perfectly complete the look. What morning sickness? What leg cramps? Khloe is simply slaying her pregnancy.
Khloe has a realistic outlook on health and fitness. She recently shared, "We...tend to compare our weight with other people's. It's SO important to remember that no two people's bodies are the same. We all have different goals, so I like to go off of how I feel...not the number on the scale."
4 Beauty In Black
The pic above of Khloe stepping out on the town is proof that a pregnant woman can look classy, comfortable and totally hot all at the same time. She realizes she will gain weight while expecting, and isn't bothered by the fact that the number on the scale is going up as her baby grows. In fact, the 33-year-old isn't all that concerned with her weight...ever.
She recently posted on her Khloe with a K app, "Personally, I don't believe in scales. I think they can be really counterproductive. Muscle weighs more than fat! But our brains won't calculate that. We'll be super hard on ourselves and not take into account that we're actually putting on healthy numbers."
The star continued, "Obviously, I don't mind if other people use scales. I don't necessarily think they're bad if you have a healthy relationship with them. Knowledge is power, so knowing how much you weigh or how much you want to weigh can be smart. Just don't get obsessed with the tactic. From time to time, I weigh myself just to see what that number is, but I definitely don't live or die by what I see!"
3 Confident And Classy
The shot above is another of Khloe out and about before she officially confirmed she was expecting. This is probably the reason for the giant handbag she is holding in front of her tummy as the paparazzi snaps pics of her. We love this look. She's wearing black from head-to-toe and looks put-together yet comfortable. She may be concealing her baby bump with a strategically placed accessory, but her blossoming chest is one clue she's got a baby in there.
Many are wondering what Khloe and Tristan will name their baby-to-be. The Kardashian sisters have become known for selecting odd and unconventional-yet-beautiful names for their babies.
When Ellen asked Khloe if she'd like some assistance with the arduous task of choosing a baby name for her impending arrival, the reality star replied, "That is the hardest. I mean, I think if it's a boy, I'll go with Junior, but I don't know what to do--Tristan Jr. For a girl, I don't even know where to begin. I think I want a K or a T."
2 Sister Act
The shot above features Khloe, dressed all in black, posing with her sister, Kim, who is a vision in white. The two of them are rocking their respective looks, and the shot is a reminder that their kids are destined to be some of the greatest style icons the world has ever known. With such stylish mothers and unlimited funds, the Kardashian's kids had better make sure every single one of their outfits is on point. It they don't, it's a pretty sure bet that their moms will step in and help them out.
Khloe was in the delivery rooms for the arrivals of all of her sisters' babies, but it's unclear whether or not she's going to allow her siblings to be present at her baby-to-be's birth. When Kimmel asked who she planned to allow into the delivery room, Khloe replied, "I think I have to talk to Tristan about this because I know it's overwhelming."
She then revealed that her mom, Kris Jenner, had the best chance out of anyone of being allowed to be present for her baby's delivery, and added, "And then whoever won't annoy me the least. Whoever's gonna be the calmest, I can deal with."
1 Fit And Fabulous
Khloe's Snapchats are always entertaining, and usually inspiring. The one above is just one example of her fun-loving spirit and her great attitude. It's also a reminder that Khloe is one mom-to-be who knows how to have fun.
She recently wrote on her Instagram account, "We are [not] victims to life, but we can become victims and prisoners to the people that we choose to surround ourselves with if we allow them to break us and consume us. Never be afraid to put yourself first! Never choose comfort over your own well-being!"
She continued, "Never forget that fate loves the fearless! Today's wisdom was yesterday's pain. Tomorrow's happiness is today's bravery! I am so proud of myself for being stronger than I've ever been...I am even prouder of myself that I've been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle for so many years. I broke that cycle and I'm happier than I've ever been! You can do this!! Start from within and nothing can stop you!"
