DEBUNKED: No, Khloe Kardashian Didn’t Go Low Carb To Have a Tiny Baby

I saw an article by the UK Sun suggesting that Khloe Kardashian cut her carbs to have a small baby. It then talked to an expert who expressed concern that restricting your diet over fears of a big baby could have a negative impact on a pregnancy.

The Sun quoted Lorna Marsh, Associate Editor at BabyCentre, who told Fabulous Online: “It’s sad to hear of an influential celebrity endorsing any dieting in pregnancy, especially as it’s unlikely to affect a baby’s size, which depends on so many factors.”

When I looked into the context of the suggestion, I figured out that Khloe was actually watching her diet reasonably over concern about having to get a C-section which is common with babies that are too large to fit in the birth canal. Khloe said on an episode of her hit E! show Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she wanted to have a vaginal birth like her sisters.

“If I want a donut or cookies I’ll eat them, I’m not depriving myself,” she told her mom, Kris Jenner, who said she wanted to see Khloe eat more.  “Everything I’m doing is instructed by my doctor,” adding, “I would love to avoid a C-section if possible, but if my baby turns out to be really big, I’m gonna have to get a C-section.”

As a woman who suffered from gestational diabetes with her first child, I am going to jump on Khloe’s side on this one. It is a FACT that excessive eating, especially of carbohydrates and sweets can in fact cause your baby to be too big, but more importantly, it can cause the mom to develop GD, the temporary condition where mom and baby have diabetes during the pregnancy.

It goes away once mom gives birth. The body senses the baby as a foreign invader and stops making insulin as it should and that’s why it is not a permanent conditition, though after a woman gets it, her and her child are more prone to develop Type 2 Diabetes later in life or some other autoimmune condition. It’s serious stuff!

I’ve blogged this before, but I used to drink 7-11 Slurpees daily because I discovered they helped me stave off the 5 months of morning sickness I experienced all day while pregnant. All of that sugar not only caused me to get too big too soon (and the baby too), but it also contributed to my positive gestational diabetes diagnosis later on in my pregnancy.

I had to measure my blood sugar daily with a stick test and see a dietitian who instructed me to reduce my carbohydrate intake in order to keep myself healthy and to stop the baby from going too much larger.

As a preventative measure, for my following two pregnancies, I stuck to a diet that limited carbs because I did not want to get GD again! It was not fun poking my fingers all the time and also, it is a health risk to the baby.

The doctors and experts who criticize celebs without actually being their physician or caregiver are overstepping their bounds and in this case, giving out potentially bad advice.

So Khloe is right on this one, but I guess spinning it like she was going out of her way to have a tiny baby is better for selling papers! ha!

 

 

Khloe Kardashian’s Bestie Malika Haqq Gave her A ‘PUSH Present’



Traditionally, a “push gift” or “push present” is something a spouse, boyfriend, fiance or partner gives to the woman who gives birth to the couple’s child after delivery, but in the celebrity reality TV world, things are never traditional.

Khloe Kardashian‘s bestie Malika Haqq gave her a diamond personalized ring bearing the name of the youngest Kardashian’s daughter  with Kardsahian’s estranged beau NBA star Tristan Thompson.

“Diamonds are always a part of life’s most meaningful moments, which is why I wanted to give this sweet ring to Khloe to celebrate becoming a mom to baby True,” the model and actress captioned an Instagram photo of Kardashian wearing a diamond studded ring that spells out True.

She ended the quote: “Diamonds are also mother nature’s greatest gift, so it had to be something natural. I wanted something that will stand the test of time and is rare, precious and unique. It just seemed like an authentic way to remember this beautiful time in Khloe’s life and in our friendship,” before tagging a diamond producer trade association’s insta, Real is Rare Real is a Diamond.

The love is symbiotic. Haqq’s  post came a few days after Kardashian came to Celebrity Big Brother and Dash Dolls alum’s  defense after a troll left a mean comment on one of Haqq’s photos.

In the comment section to a cute pic of Haqq in an oversized shirt and thigh high boots, the fan commented: “GIRL BYE!!!!! If it wasn’t for Khloé you would be a nobody… wait who are you again [sic]” to that Khloe replied to the comment:

“We are all entitled to our own opinions,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star clapped back. “And yes, love, you may have yours. But no need to be cruel when life is negative enough. But if it wasn’t for Malika then who knows where I would be emotionally.”

She went on to write, “She’s been my BFF since we were children. Loyalty and love means more to me than anything else ever could. Fame is fleeting. Malika is not.”

Nice!

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Name Their Daughter, ‘True’

True Thompson is the newest Kardashian/Jenner baby.

Khloe Kardashian announced Monday that she and her estranged beau Tristan Thompson have chosen to name their first daughter together, True, going with a supremely unique and celebrity-ish name.

“Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE,” she wrote on social media. “Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”

With cousins named North, West, Saint, Stormi, Dream and Reign, what would one expect? I like True! It has much character, to me.

According to insiders, Khloe is focusing on being mom and less on any controversy or personal turmoil between herself and Tristan.

“Khloe is mesmerized and completely in love with the baby,” a source told E! News. “That’s all she’s thinking about is caring for the baby and being positive.”

Things are still up in the air regarding her personal relationship with True’s dad.

“She hasn’t made any decisions on what she’s going to do regarding Tristan,” the insider explained. “She is overcome with emotion and can’t think about anything other than the baby right now.”

Mom Kris Jenner is in Cleveland helping her daughter out with the first weeks. Kris was also there to help Khloe labor.

“Everyone is focused on helping Khloe and staying positive at this time,” a source previously said. “They want her to be comfortable and not stressed at all. They are focusing on the baby and crying a lot of happy tears at the moment.”

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Welcome Their Daughter (UPDATED)

Congratulations to Khloe Kardashian on the birth of her first child, daughter, in a hospital outside Cleveland, Ohio this morning, TMZ reports.

The Good American Apparel co-founder announced her pregnancy with NBA‘s Cleveland Cavaliers star, Tristan Thompson, just last December after much speculation.

Since then, the Revenge Body on E! host has been sharing a lot about her pregnancy experience through her personal app and website, from what’s inside her hospital bag to her pregnancy fitness and post-baby exercise routine.

The delivery comes on the heels of very public videos, suggesting that her beau since September 2016 was cheating on her with a woman in NY and a couple of other women at a hookah lounge outside DC last October. Neither Khloe, her family or Thompson have publicly addressed the reports.

Today, it was reported that the family is rallying around the youngest adult female Kardashian. (Her brother Rob Kardashian‘s daughter Dream Kardashian technically is the youngest Kardashian)

According to an insider to E! News:

the 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star went into labor on Wednesday. After her water broke, the reality star went into labor for “several hours,” per another source. She then delivered the baby at a Cleveland hospital Thursday morning. Thankfully, her mother, Kris Jenner, her sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, and her BFF, Malika Haqq, were all there for support.

“She labored with Kris all day on Wednesday,” the first insider said.

The first insider also said the baby’s father, Tristan Thompson, was there for the birth. The Cleveland Cavaliers player had a game against the New York Knicks in Ohio on Wednesday.

“He wants to spend as much time with the baby as he can,” the first insider added.

The birth came days after videos of Thompson kissing and being intimate with other women surfaced online. The second source told E! News Khloe is “distraught” over the allegations but is focusing on the baby. While the aforementioned source said Khloe wants the baby to have a relationship with the father, the insider also said she and Thompson are not on good terms. Khloe also reportedly plans to head back to Los Angeles as soon as possible and raise the child there.

The new baby will have plenty of cousins: in addition to Dream, whose mom is Blac Chyna (real name Angela Renee White), North, Saint and Chicago West (daughters and son of Kim Kardashian-West and husband Kanye West); Stormi Webster (daughter of her half-sister Kylie Jenner and her hip hop star boyfriend Travis Scott, real name Jacques Webster); and Penelope, Mason and Reign Disick (daughter and sons of Kourtney Kardashian and her ex Scott Disick)

The baby’s arrival was showered at a lavish pink baby shower earlier this year.

Congrats to Khloe and we are thinking and praying for a healthy recovery and that she overcomes this very stressful situation.

The baby also has a half-brother, Thompson’s 1-year-old son Prince from a previous relationship with Jordan Craig, who is first cousin to our other Bumpwatch alum, Eniko  Parrish Hart.

Khloe Kardashian Gender Reveals on the KUWTK Seaaon Finale

Khloe Kardashian officially announced the gender of her first child with beau Tristan Thompson during the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

After the episode, the youngest followed up with an Instagram post.

”It’s a girl!!! SO blessed!! I can’t wait to welcome another beautiful baby girl into our family! Congrats my beauty @khloekardashian and @realtristan13 !! God is good!! 🎀 💕

On the episode this past Sunday, Khloe was certain she was having a boy.

In a clip from that episode, Khloe is talking with sister Kim and says, “I am pretty much convinced I am having a boy.” Kim agrees with Khloe and the expectant mama goes on to admit, “I have such anxiety and nerves to find out what I am having.”

After baby sister Kylie Jenner, new mom to daughter Stormi Webster,  calls with the news that Khloe is also having a girl, Khloe says after hanging up that she hopes Kylie was lying.

She apparently really had her mind on boy.

The Revenge Body host later explained her reaction.

“God gives us what we need! His timing is never wrong! My hormones were IN RARE FORM for that news,” she tweeted. “I am now so excited my daughter will have forever best friends with Chicago and Stormi!! God is great!!! Thank you Lord for our princess.”

 

Congrats!

You Won’t Believe Which Natural Pregnant Lady Thing Khloe Kardashian Is Criticized For Now

When you’re a Jenner or a Kardashian, you really cannot catch a break as Khloe Kardashian learned when she did the most natural thing most expecting women do: cradle her bump.

Serious.  People are criticizing the Good American Apparel company co-founder for being so emotionally connected to the tiny human she is incubating that she  *gasps* dares to touches his temporary home, her baby bump.  Kardashian addressed the critics in a tweet this week:

 

“People are very opinionated about my bump. I choose to cradle my bump because it’s MINE,” Kardashian wrote in a tweet posted on Wednesday, February 28.  “I’ve waited for this VERY short moment for YEARS. I have only months to enjoy this phase in my life, so I will touch my bump and love my bump as often as I choose. Mommy loves you baby!”

She got about 1,000 or so kind responses and then took some time to personally reply back to the kind tweeters and well-wishers.

Whether she is posing for the red carpet or caught by the paparazzi, she should not be attacked for being maternal. I assume most of the hate came from people who have never experienced pregnancy before, either as a mother or a close relative to a pregnant person.  It’s because of these occasional barbs from the public that so many people in the public eye elect to try to conceal their pregnancy for the duration. Example: Kylie Jenner. 

Kardashian and her beau NBA player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tristan Thompson, are expecting their first child, a baby boy.

Get Khloe Kardashian’s $3000 Satin Maternity Look for $50

Not just Chrissy Teigen, but Khloe Kardashian is another hard working expecting mom. The first-time mom-to-be has wrapped a busy promotional calendar for her E! TV show Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian which just returned to the air last month.

She gave several interviews during that time and we spotted some pretty cute ones we’d like to cop, like the navy satin Cushnie et Ochs Black Pyramid Pencil Dress cut out dress she wore on an appearance of Jimmy Kimmel Live about a month ago.

The label is a fave of stars like Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, Teigen and Michelle Obama and is known for its intricate cut outs and asymmetrical lines.

The Good American Apparel co-founder draped a similar color  trench jacket by Galvan which retails for $1,175.  The dress goes for $1,695.

If you want a much less costlier version and don’t mind getting it shipped from Amazon, you can pick up a similar dress by Hello MIZ. Their Women’s Cold Shoulder Knee Length Fitted Maternity dress starts at $19.99 and has gotten great reviews from customers who bought the dress!

And Amie Finery has a similar Cut Out Cold Shoulder Dress that isn’t just for pregnant women but comes in a loose fitting A-line so it could accommodate them too. That dress too starts at about $20 bucks! Add an Open Front Cape Trench Duster coat by HaoDuoYi which retails $26.94 and you’ve recreated Khloe’s  nearly $3,000 look for about $50! 

Score!

But if you insist on copping the original, the line has pieces that start about $250! Totally doable!
