Kris Jenner got choked up while talking about Khloé on Ellen

While we try to keep up with all our beloved Kardashians, our attention has admittedly been mostly on Khloé these days. Khloé gave birth to a baby girl named True on April 12th amid a flood of cheating rumors involving the father of her child, Tristan Thompson. And now, mom Kris Jenner appeared on the May 4th episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to dish about how her daughter’s holding up.

As per usual, Ellen wasn’t afraid to ask the questions we’ve all been wondering about. During the interview, she noted how tough it must have been for Khloé to go into labor mere days after learning her boyfriend was unfaithful.

"Khloé is amazing," Kris said without skipping a beat. "I'm so proud of that kid. I get choked up, 'cause she's such a good mom. Honestly, I get so emotional."

Kris let the audience know that right now, Khloé’s main priority is baby True. She’s not letting the drama over her relationship interfere with crucial bonding with her newborn.

According to Kris, Khloé’s main issue right now is nursing, which every new mom will understand (it’s way more complicated than it looks, guys). Kris summed up the whole situation in one sentence: “She’s figuring it out one day at a time.”

Ellen wasn’t afraid to ask Kris about the Kanye West situation, either. After posting more than a few questionable tweets, Kris’s son-in-law fell under fire this week.

"Kanye has a lot of love for all of you, all of his fans," she said. "I know he will explain himself in his own way...He always does things with really good intentions."

At the end of the day, it’s not Kris Jenner’s responsibility to clarify or take accountability for her son-in-law’s actions, and we think she handled a potentially uncomfortable situation with grace.

Sending our love to Koko, and — as always — in total awe of #LADYBOSS Kris Jenner.
