Khloe Kardashian feels like she's been "pregnant for six years".
The reality star is an aunt of three but is yet to have her own children. However, throughout her marriage to Lamar Odom - which ended in December last year - and her current relationship with French Montana, she has been dogged by rumours she is expecting.
"I feel like I've been pregnant for six years!" she joked to People magazine. "I used to get offended, like, 'Do I look fat today?' or 'Why are they saying that?' But they just say it."
Kardashian has made no secret of her desire to have children and during her marriage she took hormone shots in a bid to boost her fertility. So it took her a long time to get used to the false accusations over something that she so desperately wanted.
"Before I was like, 'Do I have a baby bump? Is my belly sticking out?' But no," she added. "I mean, one day the rumour will be true, I hope, but who knows? Until then, it is what it is."
In the meantime, Khloe is happy to spend quality time with her nieces and nephew.
While Kim has one-year-old daughter North with Kanye West, oldest sister in the clan Kourtney has son Mason, four, and daughter Penelope, who celebrated her second birthday on Tuesday. Khloe Kardashian was quick to share her joy at the little girl's big day.
"Birthday princess," she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her leaning in to give Penelope a kiss.
She then retweeted Kim's Instagram photo which showed Penelope in a quirky ensemble of skirt, denim shirt and big pink sunglasses. "Happy Birthday my little pushka! I love u so much!!!!" the 33-year-old wrote to which Khloé added on her Twitter retweet, "Lol! What a cutie!"
