For the past few weeks, Khloe Kardashian’s blossoming relationship with rapper French Montana has made headlines, and now reports claim the pair is ready for a child. The 28-year-old reality TV star recently began dating Montana, but she reportedly wants a baby as soon as possible.

“She hasn’t felt this happy in a long time,” a source tells Life & Style. “Friends keep telling her she deserves this, finally.” The two have been spotted out on numerous dinner dates and at clubs for several weeks now, and look rather content.

One of the most scandalous splits of 2013 was between Lamar Odom and Kardashian. Kardashian filed for divorce in December, after months of speculation that the NBA star cheated on her with numerous women and indulged in substance abuse. The pair married four years ago after a 30-day courtship.

In November, Odom admitted to cheating on Kardashian in a bizarre rap video while drunk. In August, he was arrested on charges of driving under the influence. “This, in and of itself, is heartbreaking and torture to my soul,” she tweeted after filing.

Her mother Kris Jenner told E! about the divorce, “Khloé really is so great. She’s strong and … the good news is that she’s busy. But she’s good. ... She’s got all of us all around her and I’ll see her later, and yeah, she’s good. She’s one of my biggest blessings. I think that when you have a tough decision to make and you finally make it, it’s always a relief to come through that process,” she added.

And though she initially wanted a baby with Odom, sister Kim revealed earlier this year that Khloe no longer wanted to get pregnant because she “knew it wasn’t right,” due to her marital troubles. And now, Khloe apparently sees no need to get married before she conceives.

“She doesn’t necessarily believe in being married to have a baby,” the source tells the publication. “Look at Kourtney and Kim!”

Both of her sisters have had children with their boyfriends without being married. Kourtney has not expressed a desire to get married to partner Scott Disick, while Kim and fiancé Kanye West will be heading down the aisle in Paris next month.
