The 31-year-old beauty admitted she is “happy” that fertility treatment she underwent when wed to the basketball star - who she split from in 2013 after four years of marriage - didn’t work because it wasn’t the right time or circumstance to start a family.

Speaking on her talk show Kocktails With Khloe, she said: “I do want to have a baby in life. I tried IVF and all that.

"At the time, I was like, ‘Oh, I’ve got to have a baby!’

"That’s all I wanted at the time, and I thought it would maybe fix the situation [with Lamar], so I’m also happy it didn’t happen because I was young. I was 27, and I thought, 'A baby will fix this,’ and it’s not going to fix that.”

Despite Khloe currently focusing on her career, she has admitted that when the time is right she does intend to have a family - but not yet.

She added: “But I’m also, right now in my life, I don’t just want to have a baby. I still want to have my family.”

Khloe and Lamar split amongst allegations of his infidelity and drug use and she has admitted she never wanted to get divorced, a process she has put on hold after the 36-year-old sportsman was left fighting for his life in October following a collapse in a Las Vegas brothel.

She said: “I never wanted a divorce to begin with, I never wanted him to spiral out of control.”
