Khloé Kardashian reveals what surprised her most about being a new mother
Khloé Kardashian has had quite the year: she gave birth to her first child, True, last month and was simultaneously embroiled in a cheating scandal, after her boyfriend and baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, reportedly cheated on her with a series of women. But despite the ensuing maelstrom, the reality television star appears to be wholly blissed out on oxytocin.
Certainly, the 33-year-old has recently opened up about all the ways in which motherhood has surprised her.
Taking to her blog yesterday, Khloé revealed that since becoming a mother, she's felt like there's something new and exciting around every corner, and that she's constantly finding energy that she didn't know she had.
"I think what surprises me most is no matter how tired you are, you find this energy and patience for your child", Khloé asserted. "You know that babies are so helpless and they rely on you for everything. So something just takes over and you find the energy to care for this helpless precious baby."
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also elaborated on how difficult it is to juggle priorities while having a newborn, and how staying on top of her gruelling workout routine has proved to be beneficial for her mental health. "It feels so good to finally sweat again," she said about hitting the gym once more. "And [to] feel like I'm evolving and doing something progressive for my body and my mind. It is a struggle getting back into the groove of working out. Mentally I'm strong but physically it's not the same - my body isn't doing what my mind is telling it to do."
Khloé also revealed the inspiration behind True's unusual name. In a new post on her app, Khloé disclosed who first suggested the name to her, and exactly why it means so much to the Kardashian family.
"Picking a name for your child is really so tough!" she wrote. "I knew I wanted my baby to have a ‘T’ initial, so one night while we were all at dinner, thinking of some names, my grandma MJ suggested True." She then revealed that while she continued to brainstorm ideas, she was just unable to shake her grandma's suggestion.
She told me it was my great-grandfather's first name and my grandfather's middle name," she continued. "It stuck with me for my entire pregnancy and was the only one I couldn't get out of my head."
Kris Jenner was certainly a fan of the choice, in April she told her followers "FUN FACT... my Grandfather's name on my Dad's side was True Otis Houghton....my real Dad's name was Robert True Houghton...so i am so excited Khloe named her daughter True!!!!"
So, while we still have no idea how Khloé really feels about the whole Tristan Thompson situation - and how much of a role he's playing in her life right now - it's evident that she's really embracing motherhood, and that's all that matters.
