Kardashian has been super-open about her relationship with Thompson, saying on her show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, "He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that's lovely." She continued, "We could start at one and we could grow from there. But now knowing I'm not on birth control is scary. It's like a really big step."

It is no secret that Khloe is extremely happy in her relationship with Thompson, especially after her long, public, and painful divorce from Lamar Odom. "It's such a great feeling that I have my happy back! It's from a genuine place and the most peaceful place I have been in for longer than I can remember," Khloe wrote about Thompson on her website. "I think when you're in love you definitely feel happy and healthy too," she continued. "I like that my relationship is very normal and doesn't need to be so publicized all the time."
