It's been three months since news of Khloé Kardashian's pregnancy broke, and on Dec. 20 the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star finally confirmed that she's expecting a baby in 2018! Now fans are more curious than ever about her 26-year-old NFL baller baby daddy Tristan Thompson. Keep scrolling below to find out how long they have been dating and so much more!
Tristan and Khloé have been dating for more than a year.
The couple was set up on a blind date group date set up by basketball player Brandon Jennings, Khloé revealed on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians 10th-anniversary special in September. They made their first public appearance together in August 2016, and they've been inseparable ever since.
Khloé couldn't hold back her love for her 6' 2" baby daddy when announcing the pregnancy, writing "Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!"
Tristan revealed more about how they met when he responded to her maternity pic on Instagram: "Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey and entering your life that day at the Bel Air hotel. One of the best moments of my life. I'm so happy to be on this journey together with you and creating this angel from the man above. Everyday I give thanks to him for bringing us together. I love you so much and I know our little angle feels the love we share together and will know that mommy and daddy loves them unconditionally forever and ever amen. BTW shoutout the brodie @brandonjennings for bringing this King and Queen together."
They are currently in a long-distance relationship.
Tristan is a 26-year-old NBA star and he currently plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, so he lives in Cleveland while Khloé's home base is in Los Angeles. But during her recent appearance on Steve Harvey's talk show, Khloé revealed that she lives in Cleveland throughout the NBA season and just flies back and forth to LA for work.
“She has a closet in his house where he lives in Cleveland,” a source revealed to Us Weekly. “They have a routine there. She has a life in L.A. and a life there with him.”
But Khloé is used to it because she's a former basketball wife herself. She was previously married to former NBA star Lamar Odom, and she dated basketball player James Harden for about eight months.
Tristan is already a dad.
Before he met Khloé, Tristan dated model Jordan Craig and Jordan got pregnant while they were together. They broke up when she was three months pregnant, and Jordan gave birth to their son Prince last December. But Khloé was supportive of Tristan becoming a first-time father and now they're going to have a child of their own.
