Khloe Kardashian has opened up about her fertility struggles in a series of tweets posted live as the latest episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians aired in the US.

The 36-year-old has previously spoken out about her difficulties with conceiving, which she discussed at length in the episode.

The Good American co-founder has one daughter, True, three, with her partner Tristan Thompson and is currently trying to have a second child with him.

In the episode, Kardashian spoke about surrogacy, and told her sister, Kim Kardashian, that she had been informed by doctors that if she chose to carry her own second child, it would be a high-risk pregnancy.

“Most likely, I won’t be able to carry,” she said.

On Thursday, Kardashian tweeted as the episode aired and offered her thoughts to those currently going through IVF.
