Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's fertility frustrations have been well-documented, particularly on the first season of Khloe and Lamar. But that was before NBA player Lamar was unexpectedly traded from the L.A. Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks. For now, the youngest Kardashian sister says she's thankful to be baby-free.
"I think, 'Gosh, what if I did get pregnant last season or a few months ago?'" Kardashian, 27, tells People. "Or what if I had a newborn baby and all this (NBA) trade stuff happened? I don't think I could have dealt with everything at one time. Doing this trade and my husband's emotions and going through all that is so stressful."
Nonetheless, Khloe and Lamar are still trying in earnest to start a family -- and Khloe says she's feeling optimistic that "maybe Dallas will bring a baby."
"Everything will happen when it's meant to be," she declares. "Last season, we were much more documenting, 'OK, when am I ovulating, when am I doing this?' And it was very stressful to do it that way, so we've stopped. Lamar and I definitely are letting nature take its course."
Kardashian admits that they have one unique problem when it comes to conceiving: the cameras that document their every move. While Khloe has zero inhibitions about being affectionate in front of the camera crew ("We've had our same film crew since the first season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians," she explains), Lamar is a different story.
"He's still getting used to filming," she explains. "There are standard cameras that are just placed in rooms. There's no film crew in those rooms. You see the black and white footage because Lamar's like, 'I can't get my freak on with people here.'"
Wow -- have we finally found something a Kardashian family member won't do on camera? Shocking!
The new season of Khloe and Lamar premieres Feb. 19 on E!.
