Kourtney Kardashian is willing to act as a surrogate for her younger sister Khloe Kardashian, who has been vocal about undergoing issues with having a baby of her own.
Kourtney,a 33-year-old mother of two, was upset to hear about her 28-year-old sister's own fertility issues on the most recent episode of "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami." After Khloe opened up about her fertility issues, the pair's sister Kim, 32, suggested that the eldest of the three act as a surrogate for the younger Kardashian sibling.
"I love being pregnant, but with my own children," Kourtney said, initially uncomfortable with the idea.
However, the eldest Kardashian later seemed open to the idea. While the father of her two children, Scott Disick, initially objected, he also decided that it may be the right thing to do.
"I know how important it is for Khloe to have a child," Disick said. "I understand now."
Despite the offers that she received from her family members, Khloe told her sisters that she and NBA player husband Lamar Odom were not giving up on carrying their own children just yet. Still, she gave fans and her family intimate details about her struggles with fertility that they hadn't heard before.
"About a year ago, we were like, 'Let's just see what happens.' And then when it didn't happen, Kim was like, 'Let's go to the doctor,'" Kardashian-Odom revealed on the show. "I found out I don't ovulate, and now my uterus lining isn't thick enough and I have to take pills to make my uterus lining thicker. If that doesn't get thicker, then I cannot carry a baby."
After Kardashian-Odom revealed the details about her fertility issues, her older sister Kourtney revealed that the matter saddened her.
"I overhear Khloe talking about her pregnancy drama, and she never really talks to me about it anymore," Kourtney said on the show. "I kind of don't really ask her, because I don't want to always bother her. It just makes me sad that she has to struggle with getting pregnant."
