Khloé Kardashian introduces baby, talks to Tristan Thompson

Khloé Kardashian took fans on her emotional journey to welcoming a second child with her ex Tristan Thompson in the season 2 premiere of The Kardashians. Although Khloé gave viewers a glimpse of her adorable new addition, she hasn’t revealed the little boy’s name just yet, only that it starts with a ‘t’.

Khloé’s rep confirmed the baby’s arrival to People on August 5. The news that the former couple was expecting was originally revealed by TMZ on July 13 and then confirmed by Khloé’s rep, also to People. “We can confirm that True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,” Khloé’s rep told People. “Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We would like to ask for kindness and privacy so Khloe can focus on her family.”

Thompson and Khloé are also parents to daughter True, who was born on April 18, 2018. The Good American co-founder and Thompson haven’t been in a relationship since last December after it was revealed the NBA player welcomed a child with Maralee Nichols , a woman he fathered while he was still dating Khloé. Thompson was previously involved in multiple cheating scandals during his relationship with Khloé, which began in 2016.

During the new episode of the famous family’s Hulu reality series, Khloé was open about her feelings as she welcomed a baby with Thompson after learning about his child with Nichols. “We did an embryo transfer like days before Thanksgiving and I found out about Tristan’s situation the first week of December,” Khloé explained, adding, “Why would I want a baby with someone who’s having a baby with someone else? I’m not that sociopathic.” She later explained that she felt “taken by surprise” by Thompson and was “encouraged to do so [transfer the embryo] by a certain date.” Explained the mother of two: “In hindsight, he always knew when the other baby was born.”

Speaking to her sisters, including Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, and mother Kris Jenner, Khloé admitted to keeping the news of her surrogate’s pregnancy a secret to “protect my mental wellbeing.” She explained, “It was a lot going through everything at once.” She also expressed concern about the public’s reaction to the news in the wake of the ongoing public drama involving Thompson. Said Khloé, “I haven’t heard from you in months about what an idiot I am.”

Eventually, with her family’s encouragement, Khloé celebrated her son’s upcoming arrival with a lion baby shower and allowed Thompson to be present at her son’s birth. After her son’s arrival, she told viewers, “Now I can finally start enjoying my life with two kids.”

Khloé previously spoke openly about her struggle to welcome a second child. “I will [True] to have siblings. If it’s God’s plan,” she tweeted in October 2021. A few months earlier, in June 2021, she said she had been advised against another pregnancy. “Dr. A just said it probably wasn’t the best idea for me to wear it,” she said in a June 2021 clip from the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion special. “She’s nervous and cautious about a few things.”

She then shared that she was looking for a surrogate. “I had one [surrogate], and then it failed,” she said during the reunion. “It’s a very long, hard process. And it was interesting because Kim went through the journey, and I swear it felt like she said, ‘I want to get pregnant,’ and two weeks later she found a surrogate.”
