Khloé Kardashian Odom is already a doting aunt. And now she's ready to be a doting mom.
But as for speculation that she is currently seeking fertility treatment in her new adopted hometown of Dallas?
Khloé herself took to Twitter to discount the Radar Online report:
"Because there is so much speculation here is my statement...I am not at this time in my life considering any type of fertility treatments. If and when I do, I will shout it from the rooftops but for now its in Gods hands."
According to our source, Lamar Odom's wife of two years is "trying very hard" to get pregnant, though there's no word on exactly what options the 27-year-old has considered.
For her part, Khloé has always been open about her desire to start a family.
Shortly after their one-year anniversary, back in the fall of 2010, Khloé and Lamar told E! News that they were already working on adding to their family.
"We're on it right now," Lamar said. "And I'm having fun trying."
And just last month, a Twitter follower implored the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star to "please have beautiful babies soon!!" To which Khloé replied, "I'm waiting on the big man upstairs to bless us with that blessing ;)"
In the meantime, Khloé's been getting plenty of mothering practice, both as loving aunt to her adorable nephew Mason and as a stepmom to Lamar's two children from a previous relationship.
Meanwhile, she's already gotten a head start on nesting, having more than made a home in Dallas. But that doesn't mean she doesn't appreciate a good homecoming when it happens.
"So emotional!" she tweeted yesterday, after Odom received a standing ovation from Lakers fans upon returning to his old turf for a Mavericks game. "This makes my face hurt from smiling!!!!! Such a proud wifey!" Awww.
