Can you believe we’re coming up on the one year anniversary of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson?!

It seems like it was just yesterday when we saw their Halloween makeout session and thought “huh, another basketball player, really?”

But it’s true: it was early last September when we first heard that Khloe and Tristan were dating, which means that August of 2016 was when the magic happened.

And, according to all the gushing Khloe did in a new interview with the Daily Mail, it looks like all that magic is still happening.

“My boyfriend is very protective of me,” she says of Tristan. “Feeling loved and validated and secure is a huge thing.”

She adds that he’s also “protective of my entire family,” which she thinks is “beautiful.’

“And I love that everything we do is as a union,” she continues. “When he speaks, it’s ‘us’ and ‘we,’ and that’s important because it shows that you’re sharing life.”

“The best thing is that we’re able to communicate about anything, and I think a lot of relationships don’t flourish because people are afraid to voice their opinion, not wanting to rock the boat.”

Sounds like she’s really, truly in love, huh?

And we’ve barely even gotten started yet!

In relationships, Khloe says, “It’s good to find someone who has the same belief system and morals as you because it makes things easy.”

“Tristan and I are both Christians; we go to church, we pray, we’re vocal about God and spirituality.”

Didn’t see that one coming, did you?

“A lot of my girlfriends get pregnant without talking about things such as religion with their significant others and then find out they have different belief systems to them,” she says.

Speaking of getting pregnant, Khloe explains that she “definitely” wants to have kids, “but I don’t feel any pressure.”

“Tristan is a great dad and he definitely wants more children, but we both feel that it will happen when the time is right.”

“We’re still in a new relationship and I love us having time together,” she smartly says. “Once you have kids you can’t get back your non-kid years.”

We’d advise Khloe to consider getting back on birth control if she wants to have a few more non-kid years — pregnancy can sneak up on you otherwise.

But she says that she understands that children are a lifelong commitment, and that “you worry about your children for the rest of your life,” not just until they turn 18 and become adults.

“The concern I have is raising little human beings in a world that’s filled with such hate and terror,” she adds. “That seems very scary.”

Yeah, girl, it really, really is.

But thankfully, she says that she’s “in the best relationship I’ve ever been in,” and she adds that “it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way.”

“I believe in marriage and I want to be married again one day but I don’t have a time frame.”

“Why do people think that marriage equates to happiness?” she asks. “There are a lot of people in unhealthy marriages.”

And honestly, with the heartbreaking way things ended between Khloe and Lamar Odom, we’d say she knows that better than most.

Really though, she does seem very, very happy with Tristan — happier than she’s been since the early days with Lamar.

Nothing but the best of wishes to this adorable couple!
