It’s a busy time to be a member of the Kardashian family.
This week Kim Kardashian split from Pete Davidson after nine months of dating, with sources indicating hectic work schedules and long distances were the cause of the split.
We can confirm that Khloe Kardashian has welcomed her second child!
About a month after Kardashian confirmed that she and her ex Tristan Thompson were expecting a second child via surrogate… this new arrival has arrived safely.
It is a boy.
As far as is known, both he and the woman who gave birth to the child are in good health.
Khloe, of course, gave birth to a daughter named True in April 2018 – not long after learning that True’s father cheated on her while she was extremely pregnant.
Khloe would eventually forgive Thompson and the stars would even try to date multiple times.
Only for Tristan to constantly kiss and sleep around behind Khloe’s back.
On his 30th birthday in March 2021, Thompson had unprotected sex with a woman named Maralee Nichols, who would eventually sue him for paternity of the child they created as a result of this act.
In January, after previously denying his role in Nichols’ pregnancy, Thompson accepted the results of a DNA test and apologized to Khloe.
“Khloe and Tristan are no longer together and haven’t spoken to each other outside of co-parenting since December,” an insider told People magazine last month after news of surrogacy broke.
By all accounts, Kardashian was unaware that Thompson had fathered yet another child when she agreed to use his sperm for surrogacy.
Still, she doesn’t regret her decision.
“Khloe is so excited to expand her family,” Us Weekly reported after the birth of her son.
For her part, Khloe has always been open about wanting to give True a sibling.
On an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians in February 2021, she told Tristan:
“True is getting older and I feel like now is the time to have another child.”
However, the reality star had been told by a doctor that she was at “high risk” of miscarriage or other complications if she became pregnant again.
“This is all very shocking to me,” Kardashian added in her confessional early last year.
“All I’m trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my family, and I seem to run into more and more roadblocks.
“It’s really hard for me to digest.”
As for her reaction to Thompson impregnating Nichols?
“I replay every event, every grand gesture, every journey” [and] any date. That was all a lie,” Khloe confessed on a June episode of her family’s Hulu show.
‘How could you not say something? I just don’t really feel in my own body. … Everything is an act of betrayal. Everything is a lie.
“Everything is manipulation” [and] it’s cheating. Did Tristan have every opportunity to tell me? Yes. Would Tristan tell me if there wasn’t a baby involved? Absolutely not.
“And that says a lot about his character. The whole thing is despicable.”
So valid. So well said.
But this should be a happy and blessed time for Khloe, so let’s end on a positive note:
Congratulations on the arrival of your second child!!!!!!
