Khloe Kardashian doesn’t want her daughter, True Thompson, to grow up with body image insecurities that she did when she was younger. During an interview with Health magazine, the celebrity mom revealed that she corrects people when they describe her daughter as “big” instead of “tall”.
“When it comes to food — I had so many issues. It wasn’t from one person, I guess just from society or how people critiqued my body,” Khloe tells the magazine. “So, I don’t play when it comes to True. She’s very tall. People will always say, ‘She’s so big.’ And I’ll say, ‘Oh, she’s so tall.’ I try to make them be more descriptive. I know what an adult means when they say that, but I don’t want her to misinterpret that.”
Kardashian is also teeaching her daughter about the importance of family.
“True is now 3 [years old],” Khloe shared with Health. “My family is glued to one another regardless, but with COVID and the lockdown, her cousins were her only friends for a bit,” the celebrity mom shared. “There were no play classes or anything like that,” Khloe added.
The Kardashian-Jenner family made the most of lockdowns last year with drive-by birthday celebrations and other measures meant to keep the bond strong. Now, with quarantine regulations relaxed, the famous blended family has the opportunity to spend more time together in person.
“As kids, family was always at the core of every conversation,” Khloe Kardashian said of her upbringing during her recent interview with Health. “No matter what, you support one another,” the celebrity added.
“I could never imagine not speaking to one of my sisters,” Khloe continued. “It just doesn’t happen,” she shared. “My sisters have gotten into some brutal, literally punching fights. But you get over it—there’s no other option.”
“And we’re raising the cousins to almost feel like they’re siblings. I don’t care if they disagree— that’s inevitable. And, of course, I want them to talk through their feelings and feel validated. But there’s just no option for us to be separated and not talk to one another.”
True Thompson is Khloe Kardashian’s daughter with NBA player Tristan Thompson. The little one celebrated her third birthday earlier this year. In addition to having cousins who are like siblings, True also has a brother named Prince who is Tristan’s son with his ex, Jordan Craig. Prince celebrates his fifth birthday in December.
