Khloe Kardashian Konfesses: I Wanted a Baby Boy!
It sounds like Khloe has some regrets. For one thing, she probably wishes that Tristan weren’t too dumb to know that cheating is bad.
But for another, learning that she was having a daughter was apparently a crushing disappointment.
Over the weekend, Khloe took to Twitter to reveal that she’d been dead-set on having a baby boy.
Taking to Twitter, Khloe konfessed to having had her heart set on a baby boy.
“I wanted a boy so badly,” she admits in a tweet.
A lot of parents have gender preferences, and a lot of them seem to hope for a boy. Which is … problematic.
Khloe explains that she wanted a boy “because Mason and I are so close. I love our bond.”
Mason Disick is her nephew and actually her eldest nibling.
“I felt confident in having a boy,” she writes.
“But,” Khloe says. “God blessed me with my precious True.”
Sometimes, people can accept what appears to be misfortune — or, in this case, simply a denial of their expectations — if they see it within an affirming religious context.
“And now,” Khloe continues. “I wouldn’t know what to do with a boy.”
That’s a silly thing to say.
The answer would be: the exact same things that she does with True, but with different pronouns and a little more caution during diaper changes.
But adult concepts of gender can apparently impact not only how they see their baby, but how they view their own behavior.
“True has made me sweeter and more gentle,” Khloe claims.
Fun fact: all babies require sweetness and gentleness.
Khloe states that “God gives you what you need.”
And what she says that she needed was a baby girl.
Khloe concludes her tweet by referring to baby True as: “My BFF 4Life.”
The photos and videos of Khloe with True and Tristan with True are cute.
But … can we look at how Khloe’s statements in the present might impact True in the future?
Telling your daughter that you always wanted a boy — not hypothetically, but during your pregnancy with her — is kind of screwed up, right?
Of course, we already knew that Khloe was shocked to learn that she was expecting a girl, so perhaps the cat is out of the bag.
Her line about not knowing what to do with a boy is not only silly, but might get her into trouble later if she has a boy.
Of course, reports say that Khloe and Tristan have entered couple’s therapy.
This can be a profoundly good thing for people in relationships of almost any state — yes, even people who are happy and have healthy habits.
But some worry that anything that Khloe and Tristan do is just delaying an inevitable split.
It’s not just because most couples break up eventually, but because Tristan is a known cheater.
Many of her fans fear that the man who cheated on her with who-knows-how-many women while she was pregnant is just biding his time so that he can go cheat again.
If Khloe can live with that, then that’s their relationship from here on out. If she can’t live with that … then it seems like they’ll break up eventually.
Many feels that this breakup would have been better if it had been around True’s birth instead of after she’s bonded with the idea of her parents being a couple.
We hope that, whatever lies ahead for that family, things happen in a way that’s best for True.
