Khloe said that she would never have considered surgery if it hadn’t been for her sister Kim Kardashian already going through the process twice. 

“My sister Kim had two babies through surrogacy, she had two that she carried on her own and her last two are through surrogacy,” Khloe tells Kelly.

“If it wasn’t for Kimberly, I definitely don’t think I would have been as comfortable.”

Khloe said that she is “grateful” for how Kim has been on her journey with surrogacy but explained that she feels their experiences were different. 

“It was more comfortable for her, for me, I’m such a control freak,” she said.

“You’re a stranger, I just have to trust you. I love my surrogate, she was amazing. But I’m still like, ‘I need you sitting next to me all the time. What are you doing? What are you eating?’.”
