Khloé Kardashian made her first talk show debut since confirming her pregnancy.
The pregnant Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star — who is expecting her first child with her NBA boyfriend Tristan Thompson — appeared on Ellen DeGeneres‘ daytime program, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, to talk about her baby on the way.
“At the beginning, the first trimester is the worst and no one knows you’re pregnant yet and you feel the most uncomfortable,” Kardashian said about feeling ill during her pregnancy. “I think once people know you’re pregnant, you get all the excuses. Hopefully I look pregnant, not just fat. It’s hard for me to breathe right now.”
Adding, “I’m gonna try to not wear maternity clothes as long as possible.”
And being uncomfortable has nothing to do with wearing curve-hugging clothing.
“The baby is on all my organs so I get out of breath just from walking,” she said.
As for why she chose to announce the baby news on Instagram, Khloé told DeGeneres: “I just wanted to do something myself and write something that was heartfelt for me. I’ve wanted to have a baby for so long it’s just the perfect timing. God always has a plan and I just wanted to do it on my time and when I felt comfortable to do so.”
Thompson is already a father to 1-year-old son Prince Oliver with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.
“[He’s] such a good dad,” Kardashian said of her boyfriend of over a year. “He’s so great just during pregnancy and he makes me more excited too. I’m excited.”
Aww. And we’re excited for you, Khlo.
