True Thompson is about to become a big sister! After years of speculation, TMZ reported Wednesday, July 13 that Khloe Kardashian is about to become a mom again with her daughter’s father, ex Tristan Thompson, via surrogate. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 38, will reportedly welcome the new child “within days,” according to multiple sources close to the outlet.
It’s no secret that Khloe wanted a sibling for her darling daughter. The Good American designer expand that she’s ready to her family in a clip released from the final season of KUWTK on February 4 2021. “Every time I post a video of True, DMs me, and she’s like, ‘She can’t play by herself her whole life,’” Khloe told Tristan. “In my head, when I was going to have kids, I never ever imagined having an only child.” She lamented that True was “getting older” and was lonely during the COVID-19 quarantine.
Though they’re no longer together romantically — hours after Khloe said on the pre-recorded KUWTK final that she and Tristan were back togethernews broke that they had split yet again — these two still have a fondness for one another. Tristan took Khloe’s confession to mean that she wants a baby with him! “[That’s what] I like to hear,” the Sacramento Kings player said in the KUWTK clip. Khloe joked that they needed to sync up their schedules. Thing got even more complicated when Tristan’s paternity scandal over his baby with Maralee Nichols exploded in January. They reportedly broke up for good back in December 2021 over the cheating allegations.
Khloe and Tristan have discussed having more kids together multiple times in the past. It actually came up during an April 2020 episode of KUWTK, when Khloe discussed potentially freezing her eggs (which she later did). Not only did she want to harvest her eggs, but she revealed that she wanted Tristan to donate his sperm. She explained that embryos have a better viability rate than eggs, but her sisters were still a little surprised. Even more shocking was when Tristan said he was open to it.
Momager Kris Jenner65, dropped hints about them having a baby together days later while appearing on Ellen. “You never know around here,” Kris said in response to Ellen, noting how Khloe and Tristan have been “hanging around a lot” as of late. “Like I said, I never count anybody out for the count. You never know what’s going to happen. I guess that’s why we’ve been around for all these seasons. 20 seasons.”
Though Khloe and Tristan aren’t together anymore, their co-parenting relationship is stellar. Tristan is constantly over at Khloe’s to spend time with their daughter, even during the COVID-19 quarantine. They celebrated True’s second birthday as a family in April 2020, showering her with presents and love — and eating Sesame Street cake. For Mother’s Day 2020, Tristan showed Khloe just how much he truly appreciated her by surprising her with a massive pink and red balloon display in her house. So sweet!
And it’s unsurprising that Khloe decided to expand her family. She is the best mom to her daughter. Khloe’s social media is now a constant stream of photos and videos of her beloved True, and you better believe that baby #2 is going to get that same treatment. Congrats to Khloe and her family!
