In a steamy photo posted to her Instagram, the 36-year-old was posed on her knees with her back to the camera in a thong and cream-colored boots. Her hand was splayed out against her hip — and a massive pear-shaped diamond ring was on full display. The snapshot was a promotional image for a new line of Good American boots, but commenters were laser-focused on her impressive rock.
The ring appears to be the same lavish piece KoKo sparked engagement rumors with while out and about in Boston in December 2020, while visiting her beau’s new home base with their daughter True Thompson. At the time, a source explained the piece of jewelry is meant to signify that the Boston Celtics player, 29, is committed to the Revenge Body host.
“Tristan surprised Khloé with a huge diamond,” an insider exclusively revealed to Life & Style in December 2020. “It’s more of a promise ring than anything else, and she absolutely loves it! He gave it to her while she was in Boston just before Christmas.”
The basketball player, who moved from Los Angeles to Boston in November 2020, is atoning for his behavior during his February 2019 cheating scandal. The athlete hooked up with Kylie Jenner‘s ex-BFF Jordyn Woods during a house party, and the tryst is what led the pair to split. “Tristan is going above and beyond to make it up to Khloé after the cheating scandal and prove his commitment,” the source said.
“He feels ready to marry her, but she needs to totally trust him first,” the insider noted. “And it will take more than a million-dollar ring, but they’re making progress and things are going well between them.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s older sister Kim Kardashian is “all for” the pair tying the knot when they’re ready, a second source dished to Life & Style in January 2021. Despite the bumps in the road for Tristan and Khloé over the years, it seems they just might make it down the aisle … eventually.
