On Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian received a call warning her that TMZ got a tip about Khloé Kardashian’s pregnancy before Khloé was ready to reveal the news to the public.

Khloé, who happened to be in the room with Kim, said, “I am just mad because there’s so many risks involved when you’re newly pregnant and, if the doctor is telling me not to announce anything until a specific time, I am respecting that, and I just hate that everyone is prying and so nosey. It’s super frustrating.” Knowing that TMZ was going to start poking around for details, Khloé was beginning to feel the pregnancy pressure.

Khloé was already having an uncomfortable pregnancy because of low progesterone levels. When her doctor informed her that she had saved her pregnancy by taking supplements, Khloé said, “This is one example why you don’t announce early. There’s a lot of complications — a lot of things could happen. I could have had a potential to miscarry. As soon as I get to my second trimester, I will have such relief, and that’s all I’m waiting for.”

Later, however, TMZ gave Kim and Khloé an ultimatum, saying that it would run the story if they didn’t call within the next five minutes to deny the pregnancy rumor.

“TMZ was texting us that they know that Khloe is pregnant,” Kim said. “And it’s such a tricky thing, ’cause people expect us to share every last detail of our lives. It’s almost like we’re not entitled to privacy. I think it’s just really unfortunate for Khloe, ’cause she’s not past her first trimester and she just, you know, isn’t ready to talk about it yet. But at this point, there’s nothing we can really do. It’s gonna get published, and it’s just really unfortunate that people are so nosy.”

In the end, the article was published, which left Khloé frustrated that she wasn’t able to announce her news on her own terms. “I don’t know if it’s high risk or whatever, but there are just chances that, you know, God forbid, you don’t make it past a certain point,” Khloé told Kim. “I’m like, oh my God, just show some respect. Obviously, when I’m ready, when there’s a healthy point where I can say something, I will.” She continued to express that she would have preferred to tell people herself rather than have them find out via the internet. But because of the life they live, they don’t have that luxury.
