Khloe Kardashian had a big confession on the March 23 episode of Kocktails with Khloe, US Weekly reports.
In the episode, Khloe sat with guests Terry and Heather Dubrow, actress Missi Pyle, and burlesque performer Dita Von Teese while enjoying a variety of drinks and talking about different topics that concern their respective lives.
While many of the talks have been interesting, Kardashian’s talk has perked up the guests’ ears the most.

When she had her turn to talk, Khloe admitted that she used to want to have a baby with Lamar Odom in order to save their already dying marriage. In fact, Khloe wanted to have that baby so much that she resorted to undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments.
Khloe Kardashian’s marriage to Lamar Odom started to tread on shaky ground after the former Laker star’s infidelities and drug use were brought to light. Maybe in Khloe’s estimation, Lamar having a baby with her would instill in her husband a new sense of responsibility that would motivate him to stop the rampant womanizing and frequent drug use.

In the end, Khloe and Odom failed to conceive a baby, and their marriage eventually went down the drain.
At the time, Kardashian was only 27 years old. Now that she’s 31, Khloe sounds happy and relieved that her attempts to have that baby weren’t successful.
“Right now in my life, I don’t want to just have a baby. I still want to have like my family… but at the time I was, like, ugh, gotta have a baby,” Kardashian continued. “That’s all I wanted at that time. I thought maybe it would like fix the situation.”
“I’m also happy it didn’t happen because I was young. I was 27 and I thought ‘oh my god a baby will fix this.’ (But) It’s not going to fix that,” Khloe added, rolling her eyes and admitting that the infant ploy is a “classic move” to save a marriage.
As it stands now, Khloe not only looks happier, she’s also become more successful both as an entrepreneur and as a television personality. Aside from hosting her own variety talk show Kocktails with Khloe, Khloe is also a published author of the New York Times bestseller, Strong Looks Better Naked.
Only a couple of months fresh from splitting with Rockets basketball superstar James Harden, Khloe is relishing the experiences that come with being a single and successful woman During her talk, Kardashian admits being thrilled at the idea that she can “f— everyone, drink my b—s off and go everywhere.”
Khloe Kardashian is now a successful and self-assured woman, but she readily admits in the show that her way to the top hasn’t been easy. She recounted her personal struggles following her father Robert Kardashian’s death in 2003. For three years since then, her life took on a downward spiral which had her spending most of her time with friends whose lives revolved around drugs.
Khloe recalled during her talk how her elder sister Kourtney saved her after having hit rock bottom.
“She said, ‘We’re going to open a women’s clothing store, and you’re going to run it,’ because I just needed structure,” Kardashian told her guests. “I needed something to do every day.”
That clothing store eventually became the now highly successful DASH. DASH became so important to Khloe that she almost passed on the opportunity to star in a reality show (now called Keeping Up With The Kardashians) when it was first suggested to her.

“Kim and my mom really wanted to do the TV show, and Kourtney and I were like, ‘All we wanted to do was the kids store and Dash,'” she explained.
Ryan Seacrest eventually convinced Khloe to go through with the reality show with the promise that the show will promote DASH.
