There are a lot of difficulties that come with being a new parent, and choosing a legal guardian is one of them.
Nobody wants to think about leaving your child behind to be raised by someone else, but even though it's hard, it is one of the most important decisions you will have to make for the sake of your child's future.
However, no matter who you end up picking, you will never be fully comfortable with the decision because only you can raise your child the way you want them to turn out. This is why most parents will go for a person they think has similar parenting styles, values, and beliefs as them.
For Khloe Kardashian, she had to make that decision while she was still pregnant with her daughter, True Thompson.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star didn't share her decision with the public at the time, but in a recent sneak peek clip from the show's upcoming episode, the new mom finally reveals who she picked.
Khloe, who welcomed her first child with NBA player Tristan Thompson on April 12, was faced with a very tough situation because she could only pick one of her sisters, Kim Kardashian West or Kourtney Kardashian, to be the legal guardian.
In the end, she went with Kim, which made Kourtney, a proud mother of three, very visibly upset. The 34-year-old explains that she picked Kim, also a mom of three, because her parenting style seems to align most with how she would raise her daughter.
"Just because I don't know my parenting style until I have a baby, but from what I envision my parenting style to be, I do think it will be more like Kim—a lot more stricter.
Watching Kimberly be a mom, I really respect her parenting skills — not that I don’t respect Kourtney’s, I relate to how Kim parents more.
But at the end of the day, this family is so close and we love each other so much and if anything, God forbid, were to happen, I know my daughter is in the best of hands no matter who her legal guardian is."
Khloe tries to make Kourtney feel less hurt by telling that she already "at capacity" anyway, but Kourtney informs her that she would like "one plus" more kids.
In an attempt to lighten up the tense moment, Khloe jokingly added that she didn't pick Kim solely based on her "core moral values."
Kourtney let her younger sister know that she does not need to give an explanation, but she is "a little bit disappointed that I'm not the guardian, but honestly, you don't know what your parenting style is until you have kids."
She adds, "So I think once Khloé has her own daughter and is really a mom, then maybe she will realize that we have more in common than she thinks as far as parenting styles. You never know! Khloé might switch back to me."
As for Kim, she says it's "an honor" and reassures Khloe that she will "take such good care" of True and any other future nieces and nephews.
In addition to admiring Kim's take on parenting, Khloe recently told People that she relies on Kim the most for parenting advice.
"I have to say that Kim probably has given the best advice because she’s not judgmental about any of it," she said. "She offers up different ideas and either you take it or leave it, and that’s okay."
Hopefully, Khloe will never need Kim to step in and raise her children, but God forbid that happens, we're sure True and her siblings would be in good hands.
