Khloé Kardashian, Tristan Thompson welcome baby boy via surrogate
News broke on July 13 that the on-again, off-again couple were expecting a son, seven months after their latest breakup.
“Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing,” Kardashian’s rep told Page Six at the time.
“We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family,” the statement concluded.
An insider went on to tell us that Kardashian, 38, and Thompson, 31, are not back together and have not spoken outside of coparenting their 4-year-old daughter, True.
The “Kardashians” star welcomed True in April 2018, one year after the athlete became a dad to son Prince, now 5, with ex Jordan Craig.
While Kardashian and Thompson split in February 2019 following multiple cheating scandals on his part, they reconciled the following year — only for the NBA player to be unfaithful again.
Thompson admitted to having sex with Maralee Nichols in March 2021 in court documents released nine months later.
The Skims founder, 41, also noted at the time that Nichols was pregnant with a son, saying, “The whole thing that’s so sad is that [Khloé] wants a baby boy. Now this girl is having a f–king baby boy? A f–king random that he sleeps with one night? F–k him!”
Nichols gave birth to a son named Theo later that same month.
Although Khloé told Robin Roberts in April that Thompson is “not the guy for” her — and she is now dating a private equity investor — she and Thompson conceived their son in November 2021 before his latest transgression came to light.
Prior to their split, the former couple were vocal about their plans to give True a sibling.
“I feel like it’s now time to have another kid,” Khloé said in a February 2021 “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” episode.
“I think I’m ready to do the whole pregnancy thing again,” the former E! personality added at the time. “This process might take time. I have no idea. I want to be prepared.”
Four months later, Khloé told Andy Cohen that their surrogate “fell through,” explaining, “It’s a very tedious, hard process.”
