E! News reported back in July that the ex-couple’s baby boy was conceived in November via surrogate. According to Khloe’s rep, she “is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing.”

According to The Heritage Foundation, surrogacy is “fraught with ethical and moral considerations” and has been known to “exploit vulnerable women.”

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s Relationship Drama

Khloe and Tristan broke up in January 2022, but it wasn’t for the first time. Their entire relationship had been a whirlwind from the very start, and there were a lot of cheating scandals and breakups in between.

The pair got together in 2016 after a blind date set up by basketball player Brandon Jennings, who is a friend of the Kardashians. By December 2017, Khloe was already pregnant with their first child.

In April 2018, while Khloe was nine months pregnant, Tristan Thompson allegedly kissed another woman at a club in New York City. TMZ released footage of Tristan kissing and inappropriately touching two women in October 2017 at a hookah lounge in Washington, D.C.

Despite the news, the pair decided to stay together.

In September 2018, Tristan was seen flirting with another girl in Los Angeles. Much later, in February 2019, the pair broke up. They were back together by August 2020, then broke up again in June 2021.

Tristan Thompson’s Paternity Scandal

In January 2022, a paternity test confirmed that Tristan was the father of former personal trainer Maralee Nichols’s child.

Khloe was already pregnant with their daughter True when news broke out that Tristan cheated on her with another woman.

The Canadian-American basketball player issued a public apology to Khloe on Instagram, but his last transgression was the last straw.

Aside from True with Khloe and Theo with Maralee, Tristan is also the father of five-year-old Prince with model Jordan Craig.

Baby No. 2 for Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson

It’s no secret that Khloe and Tristan had been planning on giving daughter True a sibling.

On an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in February 2021, Khloe mused that “True’s getting older” and she felt like “it’s now time to have another kid.”

According to E! News, an insider shared that their son “was conceived via surrogate before it was revealed to Khloe and the public that Tristan was having a baby with someone else in December.”

The pair had reportedly been working on their relationship before the news hit and had already decided to try for another baby through surrogacy. By the time Khloe found out, decisions had already been made and backing out was not an option.

Initially, Khloe wanted to keep the news to herself for surrogate privacy and safety reasons. A source told E! News that she also wanted “to protect her mental health from judgement from the public as a result of Tristan’s actions.”

However, a different insider revealed that “Khloe’s hand was forced to confirm the pregnancy before she was ready to announce” due to a leak of the story.

A Second Chance at Romance?

The on-again, off-again pair may be having a second child together, but that doesn’t mean that they’re rekindling their relationship.

A source revealed to E! News that Khloe and Tristan “have not spoken outside of co-parenting matters.”

The tallest Kardashian sister seems to be doing pretty well for herself.

In fact, a few days after the pair welcomed their son into the world, Khloe was seen having the time of her life in L.A.

Khloe celebrated the launch of Natalie Halcro and Olivia Pierson’s collaboration with jewelry brand 8 Other Reasons. She flaunted her figure in a tight-fitting LBD from Balenciaga styled with Christian Louboutin’s “So Kate” black booties.

The 38-year-old socialite made sure to accessorize with pieces from 8 Other Reasons. She rounded out her look with Prada sunglasses and a blue Hermes pochette for a pop of color.
