Why Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Are Reconsidering Surrogacy

On May 13’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson had an eye-opening conversation with a surrogacy therapist.

While the meeting didn’t go as expected for True Thompson’s parents, it was a necessary step in the path to securing a surrogate.

“Before we can proceed with hiring a surrogate, Tristan and I have to be evaluated,” she explained in a confessional. “So, today, we have a Zoom call with  surrogate therapist. He’s going to ask some questions just to see if we completely understand what’s involved when hiring a surrogate.”

The call started off fine enough, with Khloe opening up that she was the one who suggested surrogacy after learning she would be a high risk carrier.

“I have been instructed to go the surrogacy route,” Khloe informed the therapist. “And Tristan, luckily, was onboard and felt comfortable. I think more so because he saw my sister go through it.”

However, the duo’s excitement certainly dwindled when the therapist posed a difficult scenario. “These questions you might find uncomfortable but they’re important,” the therapist said before asking “What are your beliefs about fetal reduction or termination of pregnancy due to multiple pregnancies? Say the embryo split and the surrogate was carrying twins suddenly.”

Although Khloe and Tristan said they’d be fine if this occurred, the specialist highlighted they aren’t the only ones to consider in this scenario. “What if your surrogate wasn’t onboard with that?” he asked the pair.

“But, don’t they have to kind of go with what our wishes are?” a surprised Khloe responded.

As the therapist explained, while it may be their baby, it’s still the surrogate’s body. He added, “So, she could terminate the pregnancy with any unplanned outcome.”

This left Khloe and Tristan thoroughly stunned as they “didn’t know” that. “I’m definitely getting freaked out, I think, as the questions go by, I know it’s her body my baby, but I really did not put two-and-two together that that means she has the control whether she would want to terminate the twin.”
