On Sunday’s season finale of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Khloe Kardashian explored the possibility of becoming Kim’s surrogate, but received some unsettling news about her own fertility. Get the full episode recap below.
As the episode began, Rob came to visit the family with his newborn daughter Dream, prompting Kim to begin talking about having a third child. “Having another baby would mean everything to me,” she said in a confessional, “but the doctors say it’s too dangerous for me to carry, so were talking about surrogacy.” Kim then half-jokingly suggested that Khloe become her surrogate, but her sister didn’t think her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, would be on board with the idea. She added, “People think we’re so weird already. Could you imagine?”
But what started as a joke later became a real possibility when Kim asked Khloe if she would seriously consider having her baby. Khloe noted in a confessional, “Carrying a child and not have it be mine is a huge decision, but Kim desperately does want another child and I know how hard it is to trust someone carrying your baby.” Kim told her sister, “I don’t want you doing anything you don’t want to do,” but suggested they at least meet with a fertility doctor to discuss the process. The girls then called up Khloe’s boyfriend to ask how he’d feel about her carrying a child, and he said he’d support whatever decision Khloe made.
Khloe and Kim later went to meet with fertility specialist Dr. Huang to find out if Khloe would be able to potentially carry her sister’s baby. After being asked if she ever tried to get pregnant before, Khloe admitted, “Yes, but I fake tried.” She went on to note she pretended she was trying to get pregnant while married to Lamar Odom, but didn’t really want to conceive a baby because “the circumstances weren’t the healthiest.” Khloe further explained in a confessional, “When I was doing my fertility treatments, they were more so for Lamar. I had to stop because there was much deeper stuff that was happening in our marriage. I knew that it wasn’t the right situation to bring a child into.”
Khloe then got an ultrasound of her uterus to determine her eligibility for surrogacy. “What we’re looking at is if there’s nothing that’s going to get in the way of a healthy pregnancy,” Dr. Huang explained while checking the monitor. Pointing to an image on the screen, the doctor then noted, “These are follicles, these hold eggs, so this is just giving you an idea of how young your ovaries are.” But he then revealed, “There are fewer follicles than I anticipate for a normal 32-year-old,” to which a concerned Khloe exclaimed, “Shut the f**k up!” She added in a confessional “This is definitely not at all how I thought this appointment was going to go. What if I can’t get pregnant?”
Dr. Huang then suggested that Khloe freeze her eggs to ensure that she’ll be able to have a baby one day. “I can only imagine how scary this is for Khloe,” Kim said in a confessional. “Me and my surrogacy issue, it doesn’t even matter right now.” The doctor then told Khloe to stop taking birth control to see if more follicles will start growing, and then come back for a follow-up appointment. “What if I never came here?” she asked. “There’s a reason for everything.”
Later at dinner, Khloe asked Kourtney about her love life and she confirmed that she and Scott Disick were definitely not getting back together, further admitting she was ready to start dating again. Kourtney added in a confessional, “Scott and I are doing our best to be friends and be good parents,” but also insisted she wouldn’t take him back. Later that night, the sisters went out with their friends to a party at a pinball arcade, where Khloe tried to help her sister meet a guy. Kourtney, however, wasn’t interested in any of the men at the party.
The next day at lunch, Kim and Khloe told Kourtney at that they had signed her up for a “farmers only dating website,” to which she responded, “Hell to the no! You guys are the biggest losers ever! You think I like farmers only?” Khloe noted, “You always say you want to move to a farm,” but her sister clarified, “Yeah, with a hot fu**ing guy! You guys, do you know what I like?” She added, “Khloe, I just told you about my night last night and you think that I need some help?” Kim immediately became intrigued by that comment, to which her sister teased, “I sneak around this town like a slithering snake.” She added in a confessional, “I don’t know why my sisters think I need help. I’m living my life, I just try to keep everything as low-key as possible.”
Having been off her birth control for a while, Khloe went back to the fertility specialist to get an update on her fertility. The doctor confirmed her uterus was normal and healthy, and it was in fact her medication causing the lack of follicles. “I am so relieved to know I’m able to get pregnant,” she added in a confessional. Khloe later told Kim the good news, but admitted she was still thinking about freezing her eggs just in case anything should change. As the episode ended, Khloe revealed to her sister that her boyfriend was talking about wanting a baby. Kim was excited about the prospect of her sister having a child, telling her, “That’s when your life begins, truly,” and Khloe admitted she was “looking forward to seeing” where the future will take her.
