Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson

Tristan Thompson - who lives in Ohio as he plays for basketball team Cleveland Cavaliers - had been planning to rent in the city so he had his own base, but after the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star discovered she was pregnant he decided to find a permanent residence.

According to TMZ, the 26-year-old sportsman has a budget of $20 million and is looking for a place in Bel Air, Beverly Hills or the Hollywood Hills.

Though Khloe has her own property in California, her Calabasas residence is around an hour's drive away from the city and Tristan wants to be closer.

The 33-year-old beauty recently admitted she loves the "simpler life" in Cleveland, away from Los Angeles.

Khloé - who previously lived in Dallas with then-husband Lamar Odom - said: "For the past eight months, I have been basically bicoastal.

"It is gruelling, but I like being in Cleveland -- it's a much simpler life, and I actually love it and crave it. I go to a lot of basketball games. It's very [much] like my old life."

On the season premiere of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians', Khloé - who hasn't confirmed her pregnancy - played coy when asked when she wants to have a baby with Tristan.

She said: "I mean, I really don't know. I honestly wish we could just be together. When you make plans, God laughs.

"Tristan and I within the next 70 years we will hopefully have kids together. And if not, it'll just be him and I clubbing it up, rosé all day, living life on a yacht."
