It’s official: True Thompson is a big sister. About a month after Khloe Kardashian confirmed she and ex Tristan Thompson were expecting a second child via surrogate, the couple have welcomed their baby boy, her rep tells E! New. The arrival of their son comes four years after the two had daughter True.
Last month, Kardashian’s rep confirmed that True’s brother “was conceived in November,” adding that Kardashian “is incredibly grateful to the amazing surrogate for such a beautiful blessing.” However, it’s worth noting that their baby news doesn’t mean the pair are back – with a source close to the Kardashians star sharing that Khloe and Tristan “have not spoken outside of co-parenting matters”.
Referring to Tristan’s paternity scandal late last year, the insider added, “The baby was conceived via surrogate before it was revealed to Khloé and the public that Tristan was having a baby. with someone else in December.” (The Chicago Bulls player welcomed son Theo with Maralee Nichols in 2021 and is also dad to Prince, 5, with his ex Jordan Craig.)
A History of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s Relationship
Why did the “Good American” founder choose to keep the news a secret?
“Khloe kept the pregnancy a secret to protect the surrogate’s privacy and safety,” another source told E! News, “and to protect his sanity from public judgment following Tristan’s actions.”
In the wake of the drama, Kardashian wanted to keep the news of her second baby to herself, but as the second source said, a leaked story ultimately put her in a tough spot: “Khloe’s hand has was forced to confirm the pregnancy before she was ready to announce.” However, despite the timing, the couple planned to expand their family for a while. During a February 2021 episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kardashian told Tristan, “True is getting older and I feel like now is the time to have another kid.”
In another episode in March, Kardashian also highlighted how much having another baby meant to her, sharing, “All I’m trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my life. family.”
