Khloe Kardashian plans to eat her placenta.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star is pregnant with her first child with her partner Tristan Thompson and has revealed she is going to turn her own placenta into pills and take them following the birth, similar to how her older sister Kim Kardashian West did.

She made the big reveal on the family's E! reality show, following in the footsteps of Kim, who had Joni Lucarelli turn her placenta into pills when she gave birth to Saint in 2015.

Meanwhile, Khloe previously admitted her pregnancy has been "physically and mentally trying" but she praised Tristan for making everything "as easy and beautiful as it can be".

She shared: "Having a partner that is equally as excited as you are, and is such a support system, is crucial! Tristan has been an angel to me! This process is trying - physically and mentally - but Tristan has made everything as easy and beautiful as it can be! More than I could have imagined ...

"Tristan was the one who kept telling me, 'I think you’re pregnant!' He was leaving town to go back to Toronto and I went to get a pregnancy test. I actually had to FaceTime him to tell him. I was nervous and he was so excited! Of course, it’s such a blessing and such an exciting thing - but I do believe your initial reaction is always nerves.

"I’m so blessed that Tristan has been beyond supportive! He’s helped me overcome any fear or anxiety that I have! He’s always so reassuring and confident about everything when it comes to our baby."
