Khloe Kardashian is Expecting Baby No. 2 With Tristan Via Surrogate: ‘A Beautiful Blessing’
Khloé Kardashian has confirmed that she is having another baby with Tristan Thompson following their split, this time via surrogate.
“We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,” a rep for Khloé tells Life & Style. “Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family.”
The former couple share 4-year-old daughter True, whom they welcomed on April 12, 2018.
The Good American cofounder and the Chicago Bulls player have been broken up since December 2021 when news broke that Tristan cheated on Khloé with Maralee Nichols, who gave birth to his third child, a son named Theo. Tristan is also father to son Prince with ex Jordan Craig.
Although Tristan initially denied paternity of Maralee’s child, court documents revealed that the two had met in December 2020. The NBA star alleged that the pair did not have a “serious, ongoing relationship” but spent time together “sporadically” from December 2020 to March 2021.
When a paternity test confirmed Tristan to be the father of the fitness instructor’s child in January 2022, the athlete took to Instagram to share a written apology.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son,” Tristan wrote in the statement, adding, “I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.”
Khloé revealed in May that she learned of Tristan’s paternity scandal “with the rest of the world,” saying during an appearance on the “Not Skinny But Not Fat” podcast that she found that to be “the most offensive” part.
“I mean, all of it is f—ked up, like, can there be, like, a little respect?” Khloé said in the episode. “Could you have let me know before I find out on Daily Mail? That would be nice.”
In the aftermath of Tristan’s paternity scandal, Khloé limited her interactions with the pro athlete to be “only” about coparenting their daughter True, an insider told In Touch in February 2022.
“As much as it breaks Khloé’s heart, it’s not about them anymore. She truly believes Tristan will never change,” the source shared of Khloé’s feelings toward Tristan after the scandal. “It’s all about raising True so that she sees a mother and a father who truly love her.”
The reality TV star “would love to erase the past” but knows she and Tristan “just can’t go back there again.” The insider added that their on-and-off relationship “isn’t an option anymore.”
