Kris Jenner got emotional as she addressed how her daughter was coping with first-time motherhood amid the scandal, in an interview to be screened on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Friday. Struggling to hold back the tears, she said simply that Thompson’s cheating was ‘unexpected’.

Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson was caught cheating and the story came to light days before Khloe Kardashian gave birth to his child last month.

When asked how Khloe was dealing with the news, Kris Jenner said:

“Khloe is amazing. I’m so proud of that kid. I get choked up because she’s such a good mom and honestly I get so emotional.”

Kris, who runs the Keeping Up With The Kardashians show, also said that Khloe is finding nursing her daughter True ‘tricky’. Explained Kris:

She’s so excited about motherhood and trying to get the nursing thing down, which is tricky. She’s trying, she’s really trying.

Kris Jenner also gushed about how well Khloe is doing and how proud she is of her.

“She’s such a good mom,’ Kris told the chat show host. ‘I was in Cleveland last week …. and she’s just concentrating on being a mom, on her baby.”

Khloe has yet to publicly share any photos of her little girl. Kris revealed that she had Khloe’s doctor and nurse practitioner with her on the private plane she took to get to Cleveland to be there at the birth.

“We were calling from the plane she just got the epidural so I didn’t think we would make it.”
