Khloe Kardashian is expecting a girl & Kris Jenner says men are ‘more attached’ to girls

💗 Kyoto Khlo 💗 8 Month Bump 💗

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

I honestly thought it was established months ago that Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson were expecting a boy. Am I hallucinating or was everyone saying that?? Granted, I don’t think Khloe ever confirmed it, but there was widespread reporting that Khloe was carrying a boy. But now she isn’t – on Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, there was a gender reveal plotline and it turns out that Khloe is expecting a girl. So now Stormi Webster, Chicago West and Baby Girl Thompson will all be girl cousins around the same age. The new generation of Kardashian-Jenner girls.

It took a little while before Khloé Kardashian would believe she was pregnant with a daughter. On Sunday’s season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the 33-year-old star learned she is expecting a baby girl while on the phone with sister Kylie Jenner, who spilled the news to Khloé.

“When you have your mind made up as to what you’re having… everyone told me you’re going to feel what you’re having and you’ll just kind of know,” Khloé said later. “And then when you find out it’s the complete opposite, it’s just a shock. I just was convinced that I was having a boy, so to be having a girl it’s just like, ‘Okay that wasn’t what I thought was going on.’”

After learning the news, the Revenge Body star and Good American designer then rang up mom Kris Jenner to tell her, saying, “I’m really hoping Kylie’s gonna say she’s lying and like I’m really having a boy.”

“Khloé, the only thing I wanted in life, the only thing, was a boy. Three times, and I got the three of you,” said Kris, 62, who is mom to five daughters total and one son, Rob Kardashian.

“A man is much more attached to a girl,” Kris added, prompting Khloé to respond, “Totally, and I know [boyfriend Tristan Thompson] will be in love and I’ll be in love and she’ll be so cute.”

“This will be the love of his life, no offense to you, but this will be the love of his life,” Kris told her daughter.

“Well, then I’m going to get jealous. I’m jealous,” Khloé joked. “Well, then I don’t like that. I don’t like her.”

“Don’t be a bitch!” Kris chided.

[From People]

“A man is much more attached to a girl.” Agree or disagree? Daddy’s girls are a real thing, and a lot of men feel more relaxed when they find out they’re having a girl, because they think girls are “easier.” But are men “much more attached to a girl”? Hm. (I will say this: I think Kanye has always been much more attached to North than to Saint, but I always thought that was more about North being the first.)

As for Khloe and the girl…Khloe tweeted out that she already had a name picked out if it was a boy, and now she has no idea what she’ll name this girl, but she’d like a name that starts with T rather than K. And this stuff, blah:

💌 What’s meant to be will always find its way 💌

    everyone was saying it was a boy, and khloe seems to have wanted/thought it was a boy so she likely put that story out before finding out the sex.

    there was a line in one of kanye’s best recent songs that i thought was telling as to his ideas on the sexes – “i be worried ‘bout my daughter, i be worried ‘bout kim, but saint is baby ‘ye, i ain’t worry ‘bout him.” maybe that’s why he seems more attached to north – that old toxic masculinity, even though saint is younger he’s a boy so he will be fine.

    • me says:

      That’s putting a lot of pressure on Saint isn’t it? He’s male so he’ll be fine in life? What if he’s not? What if North is the strong one who doesn’t need a man to take care of her?

    • Lyka says:

      Ha, I thought of that “baby ‘ye” line too. But I sort of took it to reference the fact that Kanye sees himself as having to be “hard” and “strong” because he’s a black man, and his son will be the same (remember a couple lines after the baby ‘ye thing he also says, “I’m too black, I’m too vocal, I’m too flagrant”).

      I don’t think toxic masculinity is out of the realm of possibility here, but I had the impression that his viewpoint was more centered around the positives of black maleness and the necessary guts to get through life being an outspoken black man. I mean, I have no sense of how these people really treat their children outside of song lyrics and social media.

    Kris Jenner is an idiot of the highest order

  3. Mumbles says:

    Sorry, I’m still laughing at People calling her “Revenge Body star and Good American designer.” What a bunch of suckups.

  4. me says:

    I watched the show on Sunday. She looked so disappointed when she found out it was a girl. I was disheartened by her reaction. What I also don’t understand is she said if it’s a boy she’d name him Tristan Jr. but if it’s a girl she didn’t know what to name it. Can a woman not name a child after herself? I also don’t think one gender is “easier” than the other. I think it depends on the personality of the child. Kanye wanted a male heir badly, so you would think he’d be closer with Saint. I come from a culture where boys are always preferred…and people actually cry tears of disappointment when a girl is born. Disgusting behavior.

    • Chaine says:

      I don’t watch the show but i saw a clip of this. Made me sad too. She’s waited so long for a baby, why isn’t she happy regardless? And to film it for public consumption… this will be out there forever for this little girl to someday find on the internet that her mom was disappointed that she was a girl.

      • me says:

        Rob had the same horrible reaction when he found out Chyna was pregnant with a girl. I find it hilarious that PMK said the only thing she ever wanted was a son…yet it’s her son that is neglected by the family and her two fav children (Kim and Kylie) are girls !

    • FLORC says:

      So, her “reaction” that you were disheartened by was possibly the 10th or 20th or whatever number take they did. It’s not candid. It’s scripted. You saw poor acting on a scripted fake reality show that gets rating from hatewatchers. Being controversial is how they still get attention with exception to a very small and loyal fanbase for the show.

      Just saying. It’s all fake. Like their faces.

      • me says:

        I know the show is fake, but the fact she was willing to put that out there is what’s disheartening.

      • FLORC says:

        Me
        I agree with your point, but also… disagree.
        I think this family is so jaded and disconnected they don’t realize what messages it sends. Script choices made by ignorance. Not intent.
        It is a shame, but it’s also a smart marketing move. We’re talking about. Making it relevant. If it went the other way and she was giddy we would treat it as a normal and easily forgotten reaction.
        This family is for profit. Not to be adored.

    • Nancy says:

      Tristina would be perfect. Aww. Think PMK was throwing some shade at Jordy, Tristan’s gf he threw out for Klozilla, since she had a boy. Kind of disheartening comment since Robert Kardashian divorced the mother of his three girls and Caitlyn walked away from his two. These people actually make my skin itch. *If anyone watches this mess, do they ever mention Jordan or the baby that Tristan fathered right before he dumped her.*

    • Dee says:

      I think it’s normal to have gender disappointment. I did. I know a lot of moms who did, as well. However I hardly believe Khloe’s reaction is genuine. Maybe she is scared to have a girl, knowing what she went through and continues to go through in regards to the way she looks/feels and has been treated in regards to her looks and comparisons to her sisters. Idk.

    • IMUCU says:

      The first Tristan I ever knew was a girl in grade school…I always thought it was a “girl’s” name for years until I saw “Legends of the Fall”….So there’s no reason she still can’t use the name Tristan…look what Serena did with her daughter’s name…

    • c8c8c8c8 says:

      I hope Khloe doesn’t do what my mom did. I have 3 older brothers and am the only girl. My mom has been jealous of me since I was born. It’s actually a pretty accepted phenomenon in the psychological community, unfortunately.

    • jwoolman says:

      I remember when a good friend’s wife was pregnant decades ago – he didn’t have any sisters, and he actually said he would have no idea what to do with a girl. He had two boys, so he never had to find out.

      Many people want their first child to be a boy even today in the US. My uncle always said that was backwards because girls are better equipped by Mother Nature to deal with the stress of being the firstborn.

      I’ve never heard ever the idea that men are more attached to daughters than sons. They typically do more with sons, according to my own observations. They leave the girls to their wives. Things may be changing and there are always plenty of exceptions, but traditionally men in our culture have had much higher expectations for their sons than their daughters, whose role has been to look pretty and get married.

      It was observed long ago that when the firstborn is a girl followed by more daughters, she tends to get the benefit of her father’s attention in ways he ordinarily would have done with a son. So she may have been more likely to learn how to maintain a car, for example. It was said in one study decades ago that a disproportionate number of women who were engineers were the firstborn of all daughters or else the first son occurred many years after her birth. I don’t know if that is still true. But in families I knew with engaged fathers, it did seem to be the case that the dad treated the girl as his son-substitute in many ways. He taught her the things he would have taught a son.

  5. Tw says:

    I can’t with all of her “god is great “ religion these days. Really? Your good Christian man left his other partner and infant. A few “god is greats” and a crucifix necklace don’t erase a decade of unabashed materialism. Jesus taught to give everything to the poor, not to accumulate casts amounts of wealth only to buy more cars, homes, clothing, influence and power.

  6. PoodleMama says:

    So does Tristan not see his other child because he’s a boy?

    • Loopy says:

      If he does he keeps it pretty quiet. Khloe said if it was a boy it would have been Tristan jr…i would feel funny naming the second son my partner had junior because typically isn’t that suppose to be the first born male. But obviously the dumped girlfriend would name her child after the man that left while pregnant.

  7. HelloSunshine says:

    Is that men are more attached to girls line supposed to be shade? Isn’t Tristan already a super uninvolved Dad to a little boy? And broke up with the Mom for Khloé? Maybe I’m reading too much into it lol

    I do wonder if Khloe’s want for a boy has something to do with how her mother treats girls though.

    • Littlestar says:

      That’s what I was thinking; is this shade? Is his first child a boy? Hmm.

    • KC says:

      Your second thought is exactly what I thought in response to both Khloe and Rob’s reactions to finding they were having girls. They were anticipating their mum being less involved, influential and exploitive.

      Also, “Khloé, the only thing I wanted in life, the only thing, was a boy. Three times, and I got the three of you”. REALLY?😳. For as HORRIBLY as she treated her only boy! She’s neglected and degraded him is it a wonder he’s so messed up considering his formative relationships with women were so lacking, dismissive and self-worth crushing.

      People will likely hate that I write this but I’ve wondered if part of Bruce’s decision to change genders was due to being so emasculated and devalued and seeing women so elevated (although exploited) it encouraged him to desire a gender and life that looked so much more alluring the way it was portrayed by Kris and the Kardashian girls. Back in 2010/2011 I was convinced this was what Rob would end up doing for similar reasonings and because it might be the only way he could get attention and value from his family. I say this as someone who has toyed with the idea of how much easier life would be if I was a man but I’m black so I’ve concluded that would be a lose-lose situation.

      • jwoolman says:

        KC- Caitlyn wanted to be a woman long before she met the Evil One. Both her previous wives knew about it, and so did Kris even though she tried to pretend it was a big surprise. Caitlyn was actually doing hormone treatment when they met, preparing for transition. I think she says she knew when she was a young child.

        But to me Caitlyn has the oddest view of what makes someone a woman. She seems very into the superficial fashions and makeup etc. personified by the Kardashian women. That seems to be the major draw for her. I don’t know if that was always the case, maybe it was. That doesn’t seem to be universal among trans women, although it’s not uncommon among the most public ones.

        But have to admit, I’m a tad baffled about what exactly makes someone a woman myself, other than the obvious physical characteristics and social boxes we get stuffed into, basically shared experiences. One of the attractions of cats for me is that they seem to pay no attention to gender roles, other than very specifically for reproduction. People sometimes try to superimpose human gender stereotypes on cats, but it really doesn’t work. Even when boy cats allegedly fight over a girl cat in heat – half the time she goes off with the loser. Cats are also pretty egalitarian about sexual behavior with other cats (proving to me that Mother Nature really doesn’t care who we do it with as long as we do it with the other sex often enough to have lots of babies).

  8. Sherry says:

    I can see it now in about 15 years we’ll be seeing North and Penelope getting papped everywhere and hot on their heels will be Chicago, Stormi and Khloe Jr. Depending on how much influence they have over Dream, I’m sure she’ll be in that mix too.

    As for the question is Kris right? There’s a cliched “Daddy’s Girl” and “Mama’s Boy.” Maybe they’re cliches for a reason, though I have a daughter and 2 sons and I don’t see it. I think parents relate to same sex and different sex children in a different way, but I don’t think it means they love those children more or are attached to them more.

  9. mogul says:

    Seeing as Tristan doesn’t aknowledge the existence of the one year old son that he already has, they are all hoping that he stays interested in his daughter. The anguishes of procreation with a deadbeat father.

  10. JA says:

    Yea he totally is not gonna ditch you like he ditched his other baby mama cause you having a girl! He’s gonna totally love it more now. These ppl are pathetic and disgusting

  11. sunnydeereynolds says:

    How did Kylie know it before Khloé that Khloé is having a girl? Lol.

    I kind of see where Khloé is coming from though. I know someone who wanted a baby girl so much, already had a baby girl’s name picked out and was so disappointed that she was having a boy and actually cried for a few days. Lol. But now she loves him and wouldn’t trade him for anything.

    • me says:

      Kylie said she wanted Khloe’s doc to call HER first and tell her the gender and that Kylie would then call Khloe with the news. Not sure why Kylie was even involved in this. The funny thing is I watched the show on Sunday and out of no where they showed Kylie…very pregnant, but NO ONE mentioned anything about it ! They just acted normal…like hellooo is no one going to talk about how Kylie is all of a sudden pregnant on the show lol. I’m guessing Kylie is going to talk all about it on her own show.

  12. Geronimo says:

    I’m going to have to disagree with PMK on this one. There are a whole group of girls/women whose fathers want absolutely nothing to do with them. The “Daddy’s Girl” narrative really makes my eyes twitch!

  13. jequill says:

    A girl name with a T, well…
    If she follows Kim’s logic to chose a name of a city important to the father, it could be Toronto (tori ?). Or will she follow Kylie with a weather themed name ? Thundera maybe ?
    Pretty sure it will be weird anyway.

  14. Shannon says:

    I wouldn’t doubt that there’s some truth to that cliche. I have two sons and they’re definitely mama’s boys, and I feel like I ended up kind of a daddy’s girl although I love both parents very much. My person theory (which can be taken with a pound of salt) is that because the kid is the opposite gender, you don’t see yourself so much in them and it’s easier for you to see that person as an individual, not just your mini-me.

  15. DSW says:

    Kris Jenner is more attached to girls, because they’re her bread and butter.

  16. Lis says:

    Pfft … my Dad participated in that old school European bullshit way of thinking that boys are somehow more valuable. My brother was SO obviously his favourite.

  17. Amelie says:

    I know she’s 8 months pregnant but I feel like whatever work Khloe had done to her face is being overemphasized by the pregnancy puffiness of her face?? She looks like a cartoon character right now and is entering uncanny valley territory and I’m not sure it’s all her pregnancy.

  18. Msmlnp says:

    Longest. Pregnancy. Ever.

  19. The dormouse says:

    1) As FLORC said above, it is all fake, designed to generate hate-watchers. Trolling as an art form and business model.

    2) They always planned three girls, likely carried by three surrogates. Hoping to score on genetic lottery for marketability. Boy talk was a smokescreen to make the whole thing seem ‘spontaneous’.

    3) Search for ‘Couples With Daughters More Likely to Divorce.’ Clever strategy – don’t get married!

  20. susiecue says:

    So she’s just hanging out in her shower? LOL

  21. psl says:

    Gah, she can talk til she is blue in the face, but I will never believe she is carrying this baby.
    And yay, another girl to be screwed up for life.

    How sad.

  22. Ash says:

    Nope. I don’t believe it either and before someone jumps down my throat again I’m never a conspiracy theorist. This family lies for a living and I’m sorry, she’s not pregnant. Kylie’s baby is not one month old. When Khloe said on that stupid show of theirs that her and Kylie were three months apart. I’m sorry we’d see wayyyyyyy more naked bump pics if she was. She lives for the camera. Not buying it. I also wish someone would expose all this. It makes me furious they are taking advantage of so many poor young girls buying into everything they say.

    • c8c8c8c8 says:

      I don’t watch KUWTK, but Khloe and Kylie can absolutely be 3 months apart. Estimated dates of delivery are not a perfect science. Emphasis on estimated. For all we know, Kylie’s estimated due date was late January and Khloe’s is early April.

      Considering how many people are involved with the Kardashians, it would be next to impossible to keep two surrogacies secret.

      And finally, Khloe doesn’t owe you naked bump pics to prove she is pregnant. That’s a really gross thing to say.

      • psl says:

        I’m with Ash – she’d have posted nude “bump” shots every damn day, once she got the “all clear” from the doctor. And it’s not that she “owes” anyone anything – for years she couldn’t do a thing without posting a pic. The only time this family “disappears” from social media is when they are having work done on their faces/bodies or keeping control of a lie.

        Not carrying this baby.

  23. Elysium1973 says:

    I honestly thought she was Amber Portwood when I first saw the picture on this thread. Sad that I even know who she is.

  24. Ash says:

    Lord. Relax. She doesn’t “owe” me anything. This is a Kardashian! This is celebitchy. A gossip site. I’m not debating the creation of the earth.
