In the season 20 premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloé Kardashian revealed some shocking information about her pregnancy struggles. Not only did Kardashian nearly miscarry "in the beginning" of her pregnancy with now 2-year-old True, but doctors also made a startling discovery when Kardashian began IVF treatment in order to have a second child with now reconciled partner Tristan Thompson. In the episode, the 36-year-old revealed to her sister Kim that while doctors were able to retrieve 12 viable eggs during her second retrieval process, they discovered that Khloé had a heart abnormality that would make any future pregnancy "high-risk" with "an 80 percent chance" of miscarriage.
"This is all really kind of shocking to me," Khloé admitted to Kim. "All I’m trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my family and I seem to be running into more and more roadblocks and it’s all really hard for me to digest." In the midst of her fertility woes, Khloé posted a cryptic message to her Instagram stories. With a picture of an old couple holding hands, she shared the message "Soulmates always win."

Khloé previously opened up about her struggles with getting pregnant on the podcast Lady Parts with Sarah Hyland, explaining that she and Thompson plan on having more children, but that their timeline had been delayed due to the pandemic. "If you do need assistance in fertility, it's much more challenging during COVID," Kardashian explained. "They say, 'If you wanna make God laugh, tell him your plans.' So the one time I'm actually really trying to plan, God is saying, 'Uh uh, you can't make your plans like this!' "
"My plan was to have kids closer in age," Kardashian continued. "But with COVID and everything, my plan's been a little delayed. I definitely do want more kids. I have so many brothers and sisters. I think it's such a blessing — especially during these times — to have a family member or people that you can play with and rely on and just have a buddy through life."
Despite the setbacks, the on-again-off-again couple is taking things one day at a time. "Khloé and Tristan are good," a source told People. "They are obviously spending a lot more time apart now since Tristan lives in Boston. They are still moving forward with their plan to have another baby. Khloé is definitely frustrated at times. She really, really wants another baby and finds it hard to be patient. But she is trying to stay positive. She believes and hopes that it will happen this year."
