“Before we can proceed with hiring a surrogate, Tristan and I have to be evaluated,” she explained in a confessional. “So, today, we have a Zoom call with a surrogate therapist. He’s going to ask some questions just to see if we completely understand what’s involved when hiring a surrogate.”
The call started off fine enough, with Khloe opening up that she was the one who suggested surrogacy after learning she’d be a high-risk carrier. “I have been instructed to go the surrogacy route,” Khloe informed the therapist. “And Tristan, luckily, was onboard and felt comfortable. I think more so because he saw my sister go through it.”
However, the duo’s excitement certainly dwindled when the therapist posed a difficult scenario. “These questions you might find uncomfortable but they’re important,” the therapist said before asking “What are your beliefs about fetal reduction or termination of pregnancy due to multiple pregnancies? Say the embryo split and the surrogate was carrying twins suddenly.”
Although Khloe and Tristan said they’d be fine if this occurred, the specialist highlighted they aren’t the only ones to consider in this scenario. “What if your surrogate wasn’t onboard with that?” he asked the pair.
