Khloé Kardashian made a point of remarking on the size of her 3-year-old daughter True. She said in a recent interview that she corrects people who call her daughter True “big” instead of “tall.”
“I don’t play when it comes to True,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum, 37, told Health on Wednesday, October 13. “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.”
The Strong Looks Better Naked author noted that her reaction comes from her “many issues” with food throughout the years and she wants to protect her daughter from the same problems.
“It wasn’t from one person, I guess just from society or how people critiqued my body,” the Los Angeles native, who shares her toddler with on-again, off-again boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, explained to the magazine.
The Revenge Body host also stated that their child is “really tough,” which she describes as a “great thing.”
The former reality star said, “If that’s who she is, I’m not trying to make her not be that way. But sometimes, I’ll notice she may bump into something. I’ll say, ‘Are you OK, Tu-Tu?’ And she’ll say, ‘Yes,’ and kind of brush it off. I do try to always tell her that it’s OK if she cries or if something is wrong.”
Kardashian gave birth to her daughter in April 2018, the same year Kim Kardashian’s daughter Chicago was born via surrogate and Kylie Jenner gave birth to Stormi. During a July 2020 “Travis Stork Show” podcast episode, the Good American co-creator stated that she tries not to compare True to her cousins.
“Sometimes I see some of them and I’m like, ‘But Chicago did this,’ or, ‘Stormi did that,’” the former X Factor host explained at the time. “I’m like, I can’t do that. We’re all different kids and different ages and we just learn differently. I have to remind myself of that.”
Khloé has frequently tweeted about how much her daughter resembles Thompson, 30, but she thinks True’s personality is the most similar to her own.“She’s crazy, basically,” the Celebrity Apprentice alum exclusively told Us Weekly in June 2019. “She’s just silly and she’s not shy. How I was as a kid is very much how True is.”
