Khloe Kardashian chose Kim Kardashian West to be her daughter True's godmother because she's "so secure in her life."

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star couldn't decide between her two older siblings Kim and Kourtney who would be the best religious guardian of her now-five-month-old daughter but ultimately settled on the 37-year-old businesswoman because she loves the way she raises her three children - North, five, Saint, two, and Chicago, nine months - with her husband Kanye West. 

Speaking in Sunday night's episode of the family's reality TV show, Khloe - who was still pregnant at this point - said: "I am a huge planner, I love to be prepared. That's just how I am. 

"I always thought Kourtney would be the godparent of my child, but lately I've been watching Kimberly and she's been someone that I really gravitate to as a mom. So it's a tough choice between Kourtney and Kim."

However, Kourtney - who has three children Mason, eight, Penelope, six, and Reign, three, with her ex-partner Scott Disick - was upset about Khloe's decision. 

The 39-year-old beauty said: "I don't know why this even something Khloé has to think about. My passion is my kids and my family and we're always doing fun things and travelling. The kids have a sense of freedom but we also have boundaries, so I'm obviously the best choice."

But Khloe, 34, felt closer to Kim when she was pregnant.

She said: "I feel like Kim has been so selfless during my pregnancy. She's trying to just help make sure that you feel your best, look your best, have the best. She's so secure in her life that I feel like she would be an incredible godparent. She's just been a great friend and sister ... I have thought this over long and hard and I've decided what I want to do. I just have to make the best decision for my daughter but I also am not trying to hurt anybody's feelings.

"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."
