Khloe Kardashian is one celebrity who doesn’t give up. When she wants something, she gets it one way or another. After all, there’s a reason why Khloe is often called the most likable member of the Kardashian family. She’s relatable, goal-oriented and most of all, she’s not afraid to show the world that she’s an imperfect human being.
What you see is what you get with Khloe Kardashian. At the same time, she also knows that there’s plenty of room for improvement.
With that being said, Khloe has had quite a rollercoaster journey these last several weeks. She just gave birth to her daughter, True Thompson. It has been her lifelong dream to become a mother and now that she finally has her baby, she’s on cloud nine. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said about her love life. A few days before Khloe was expected to give birth, her baby daddy Tristan Thompson was photographed partying with other women, causing the media to lose their marbles.
Yet, a lot of people are saying that despite Tristan’s behavior, Khloe is going to keep him around anyway. That’s why we’ve got 15 reasons why Khloe still wants to marry Tristan, despite his wandering eye. Check it out below!
15 Her First Divorce Still Haunts Her
Khloe Kardashian has already gone through one messy marriage and divorce. After only getting to know him for just one month, Khloe married her ex-husband Lamar Odom in front of the world. And surely, we all know how that ended up. There’s a strong possibility that Khloe doesn’t want to make the same mistakes she made with Lamar. That’s why she’s willing to give Tristan and their relationship a chance.
She doesn’t want to be known as yet another reality television star with several divorces on her record.
What’s more, media outlets report that the Kardashian and Jenner girls don’t have written custody agreements with their partners. Yikes. That doesn’t sound like good news. TMZ reports, “Three Kardashian baby daddies are all taking a leap of faith … that their baby mamas will give them proper custody and/or visitation without the benefit of a custody agreement. Sources connected to all three men tell [...] they never papered their financial and custodial arrangements."
They also added: "We’re told Travis Scott and Kylie don’t have anything in writing regarding custody or support of their newborn daughter. Same goes for Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian, although that may be a bit premature since she hasn’t given birth.”
14 Her Awful Dating Record
Speaking of records, Khloe Kardashian doesn’t have the best one when it comes to her dating record. Yes, we know that Khloe had plenty of ups and downs with Lamar. At one point after their separation, he was even hospitalized for substance abuse.
But that’s not the only dark episode Khloe had to deal with. She also had a number of boyfriends who could have done a better job at treating her like the reality television princess that she is.
Of course, we are talking about her exes French Montana, James Harden, Matt Kemp, Rick Fox and so many more.
Speaking about how she first met Tristan Thompson, Khloe told ES Magazine, “He said: “I have someone I want you to meet.” I said: “Absolutely not. I don’t go on blind dates.”’ But when she met the basketball player (who has a four-month-old son with his former girlfriend, model Jordan Craig) she says "‘we both felt this strong energy. I was like, oh this is such a nice, normal man — the normalcy is what I was craving. I’m a Christian; he’s a believer in God and that’s important to me. Tristan’s morals and ethics are everything I’ve wanted and need in my life.’”
13 She’s Desperate For Love
When announcing her pregnancy, Khloe wrote this on her Instagram account, “Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!”
If there is one person who is desperate for love in the Kardashian family, it’s Khloe.
She wants her prince charming, her two kids, and her happily ever after. She also doesn’t want to let go of hope because she knows and believes in love.
That’s why she is willing to become the next Mrs. Tristan Thompson, regardless of what hurdles she has to overcome to make it happen.
She added, “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 as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us.”
12 She Wants True To Have A Family
Anyone who has been following Khloe Kardashian’s journey knows that her biggest goal in life has always been to become a mother. She dealt with her infertility struggles for years before finally getting pregnant with Tristan. It’s safe to say that all of her dreams were definitely coming true at one point.
With that being said, she is not going to let the media or any paparazzi photos dampen her stride. She’s so close to achieving everything she’s wanted in her life and that’s why she is willing to still get married to Tristan. She wants True to have her mother and her father by her side at all times, no matter how hard it may be.
Khloe said this on her website just a few days before she gave birth, “I don’t feel like I need to prepare for my birth by freaking myself out. I’ve seen over eight births live and in person. Women were made to do this! It’s a very natural experience. I read my apps every day and I ask my doctor if I have any questions, so I’m honestly not that afraid. Of course, I’m a little nervous to go into labor, but I’m trying to not overthink something that literally happens all the time.”
11 She Has Seen What Divorce Can Do To Kids
Khloe and her siblings are the product of a failed marriage and divorce. As a matter of fact, Khloe witnessed her mother going through two heartbreaking divorces in her life. Her first one was with Khloe’s dad, Robert Kardashian. And the second one, of course, was with Caitlyn Kenner.
Khloe has also seen her sister Kim deal with all the stress and drama that she had with her two divorces. Seeing what it has done to her family, Khloe doesn’t want it for her herself. She doesn’t speak about it a lot, but there’s no denying that it was hard on her and her siblings, especially as they were growing up. Khloe loved her father as much as she loved her mother and until this day, she thanks her parents for all they’ve done for her. That’s why she wants True to grow up in a strong household, and not a broken one.
“They are both 100 percent committed to moving past this and focusing on the overwhelming joy they have in their life right now with their new daughter,” one source recently told Entertainment Tonight about the scandal. “Tristan knows he’s got to step up now though and can’t screw up. They’re only looking forward, not backward. Right now, she realizes she needs her family around her and knows they are the people in her life that she will always love and trust. She loves him. She is in no shape to make that decision right now.”
10 She Doesn’t Want To Become A Failure
Khloe has gone on the record to call her self “the fat sister” of the Kardashian family. She’s well aware of what the press and the tabloid media write about her, and she’s not afraid to say or confirm it out loud.
That’s why her fans love her so much. It’s because she’s real. But at the same time, all of the comments have been hurtful. Sure, Khloe has an incredibly thick skin, but at the same time, she’s human.
The comments hurt, no matter how hard Khloe tries to ignore them. She doesn’t want to be dragged down more than she already has by the world.
According to E! News, one source close to Khloe says she just wants to brush everything under the rug. The insider said, “Although she is crushed by the scandal, Khloe desperately wants things to work and wants to have a complete family. Things are more complicated now that there is a child involved, but it was causing more stress on Khloe by being in limbo with Tristan. Khloe decided that the back and forth and indecisiveness on what they were going to do was taking a toll on her. She wants to brush things under the rug and move forward.”
9 She Still Loves Him
A lot of people will agree that when you give birth, you go through a lot of emotions. Either you feel very down or you feel very up. But according to several reports, Khloe was feeling nothing but bliss after she gave birth to Baby True. She was over the moon, to say the least.
And because she was so happy about finally becoming a mother, there’s a strong possibility that she might have forgiven Tristan right off the bat just because she was feeling so many good vibes.
Now, we are not saying that happened, but it’s possible. That’s why she’s so focused on making things work with Tristan. Love is the most powerful drug in the world, after all. It really does make people do crazy things. We’ve seen it many times.
According to E! News, the insider also said, “Khloe has definitely set guidelines and boundaries for their new chapter. She wants to make sure she is not embarrassed and heartbroken again, but everyone is warning her. Khloe has a huge heart and once she falls, it’s hard for her to give up on someone she cares deeply about. She has been in a rough spot this past month.”
8 She’s Willing To Forgive
Khloe Kardashian knows that she’s an imperfect human being. As a matter of fact, she’s the first person to admit to it. She knows she has her flaws and that she’s made plenty of mistakes in the past. And that might be one of the reasons why she’s so willing to forgive Tristan. Whatever happened in the past has happened.
She wants to hit the reset button and start all over again for the sake of their daughter. In other words, she’s willing to forgive, forget and move on with their lives.
Also, Tristan is the man that finally got her pregnant. And if he did it once, sure enough, he might do it again. Khloe wrote this on her official website, “Tristan was the one who kept telling me, ‘I think you’re pregnant!’ He was leaving town to go back to Toronto and I went to get a pregnancy test. I actually had to FaceTime him to tell him. I was nervous and he was so excited! I’m so blessed that Tristan has been beyond supportive! He’s helped me overcome any fear or anxiety that I have! He’s always so reassuring and confident about everything when it comes to our baby.”
7 Even Tristan’s Ex Wants Peace
Apparently, Khloe Kardashian isn’t the only person who is willing to forgive and forget. Tristan’s own ex even came to Khloe’s rescue after all of the allegations and paparazzi photos surfaced in the media. Instagram model Jordan Craig released a statement asking for peace from her fans. Mind you, this is the same baby mama who totally got the short end of the stick by Tristan when he first started dating Khloe. In fact,
Jordan was pregnant with their first child during Tristan and Khloe’s romance! You’d think that she would be happy seeing karma work its magic, but she’s not. She knows that a small baby is now in the picture and that’s why she wishes Khloe and Tristan nothing but good vibes and positivity.
Jordan said on Instagram after the scandal news, “If you respect yourself and you respect others, you would never make light of the misfortune of anyone, nor would you feel indemnified when it comes at the expense of others. Wishing peace for everyone.”
According to Us Weekly, Khloe once said, “I don't believe in revenge. When people are bullies it's because of a deeper-rooted issue - either their family life is tough or they're being bullied by someone bigger than they are.”
6 She Wants To Focus On Being A Mother
If there is anything that Khloe Kardashian wants right now, it’s peace in her life. And when Khloe wants something, you better bet your bottom dollar that she’s going to get it. She’s waited her entire life for this moment and all she wants to do is focus on being a mother. The rest can be fixed in due time.
Speaking about her pregnancy, she told ITV’s Lorraine, “The very beginning is challenging because you feel so out-of-place … and I think you’re the most sick and no one knows you’re pregnant. I’m not sure what the end is going to be like, but for right now, I’m doing pretty well.”
Plus, we all know how Khloe has issues with emotional eating. She’s even talked about it before.
Khloe likes to stay focus on the things that matter in her life, even when she is feeling frazzled our down. “I’ve been eating like a beast and I don’t like it LOL,” Khloe wrote to fans on her app on Wednesday. “In the second trimester, I was giving in to my cravings in moderation — but now in my third, I just don’t have the self-control I used to have. Like it seriously all went out the window in my eighth month! But I’m not seating it because I’ll get back on track.”
5 Nothing Will Bring Her Down
If there is anything that we’ve learned about watching several episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it’s that nothing – and we really mean nothing – will bring Khloe Kardashian down. After all, she is one celebrity and reality television star that has been put through the ringer.
Everything that could have been said about her, has been said about her. That’s why she’s not letting anything get in her way from achieving her goal of living happily ever after.
According to AZ Quotes, Khloe once said, “I just find it crazy what people will critique you on, and you have to take it with a grain of salt. I could be curing cancer, and I would be shunned for it. I mean, that's just the truth. People are crazy, but I like to say for every hater I have 100 people that love me and they think it's motivational, so I try to focus on that. But it's sometimes hard, you know?”
Destiny also had better plans for Khloe in her life. When asked about hiring a surrogate, Khloe added, “I thought about it at one point then it just didn’t cross my mind, so when I got pregnant I was so surprised.”
4 She’s Not Listening To Opposition
Now, what Khloe Kardashian wants is one thing, but what her siblings and the rest of the Kardashian family want for her, is another thing. When you live in a family as big as the Kardashians, there’s a good chance that you will get several different opinions on several different matters. No one will agree on anything. And while Khloe might think that she’s following her heart, her sisters might want her to follow reason. Simply put, they might think that Tristan is bad news.
According to People Magazine, Khloe has said, “I’m with my sisters pretty much every single day, so it was hard to not be able to say why I was so sick or couldn’t do certain things … I believe there are certain things that need to be held private and for yourself. It was beautiful to have something that was just ours.”
If the Kardashians had it there way, Tristan Thompson would have been long gone. But Khloe is not going to let that happen. She’s holding on to her man, for better or for worse, despite what the opposition has to say about it. Time will only tell if she is making the right decision, though.
3 But Kris Might Have Something To Say About It
Then again, if there is one person who has enough power to stop anything from happening, it’s Khloe Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner. After all, she is the matriarch of the family. There’s also a good reason why the media is so scared of her. Kris is a master manipulator and businesswoman who knows how to pull all the strings from behind closed doors. And when she says no to something, you better believe that no means no.
According to AZ Quotes, Kris once said, “You can't write your life story and leave out one of the most important things that happened to you in your life. I think that that would be dishonest, and it would be something people would be very angry about. When you feel like something is really wrong, it's usually wrong.”
When it comes to the Kardashians, business matters over love, right?
And if Khloe has a show that she wants to do, Tristan is not going anywhere. Who knows, motherhood might have truly changed Khloe into a totally different person. She might also now realize the value of having both a biological father and a biological mother raise a family together. Watch this space as more will definitely come.
2 Will Khloe Get Her Own Spin-Off Show?
Of course, there’s always the assumption that Khloe might not want to let go of Tristan because it will ruin her future plans. In other words, there’s a good chance she might be bidding on her own spin-off show to help document her life as a new mother and a woman in love.
Speaking about how she and her siblings grew up with money, Khloe told the Daily Mail, “My father was incredibly wealthy. We had a mansion in Beverly Hills and Rolls-Royces. My parents would have extravagant parties. We had ponies and Ferris wheels. It was a beautiful life. My dad had grown up poor; he was self-made and proud of that, as he should have been. He was a smart man. But he was also strict: we would go to feed the homeless on Skid Row, and he didn’t believe in giving us money.
She also added, "None of us had credit cards when we were teenagers, even though all our friends did. My dad believed you have to work for every dollar. So from 14, we had to get summer jobs. I worked in his office as an assistant and in a clothing store, but because I was only 14, I wasn’t allowed to be on the cash register and I had to clean the back rooms and the toilets instead.”
1 She Wants A Real Wedding
Then again, Khloe is the kind of person who truly listens to her heart. And if her heart is telling her that she wants to stay in love and get married, then she will do it. At the end og the day, that’s all Khloe really wants. She wants her peace, her love, her happiness, and her family to be together.
Now, the only question is whether or not Tristan wants the same thing.
And if there is anything that Khloe has, it’s faith. She knows that this too shall pass. She told The Daily Mail in an interview, “It’s good to find someone who has the same belief system and morals as you because it makes things easy. Tristan and I are both Christians; we go to church, we pray, we’re vocal about God and spirituality. A lot of my girlfriends get pregnant without talking about things such as religion with their significant others and then find they have different belief systems to them."
She went on to add: "I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way. I believe in marriage and I want to be married again one day but I don’t have a time frame. Why do people think that marriage equates to happiness? There are a lot of people in unhealthy marriages.”
