It’s a busy time to be a member of the Kardashian family.
First this week, Kim Kardashian broke up with Pete Davidson after nine months of dating, with sources citing hectic work schedules and long distance to blame for the split.
We can confirm that Khloe Kardashian has welcomed her second child!
In about a month Kardashian has confirmed that she and ex Tristan Thompson are expecting their second child by surrogate… this new arrival, well arrived.
It’s a boy.
As far as we know, both he and the woman who gave birth to the child are in good health.
Khloe, of course, gave birth in April 2018 to a daughter named True — shortly after learning that True’s father had cheated on her while she was extremely pregnant.
Khloe would eventually forgive Thompson and the stars would even try to get back together on a few occasions.
Only for Tristan to constantly kiss and sleep behind Chloe’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 the act.
In January, after previously denying any role in Nichols’ pregnancy, Thompson accepted the results of a DNA test and apologized to Khloe.
“Chloe and Tristan are not back together and haven’t spoken since December, other than co-parenting,” an insider told People magazine last month after the surrogacy news broke.
Apparently, Kardashian didn’t know Thompson had fathered another child when she agreed to use his sperm for surrogacy.
However, she does not regret her decision.
“Khloe is so excited to expand her family,” Us Weekly reported following the birth of her son.
For her part, Khloe has always been open about her desire to give True a sibling.
During a February 2021 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she told Tristan:
“Trew is getting older and I feel like it’s time to have another child.”
However, the reality star has been told by a doctor that she is at “high risk” of miscarriage or other complications if she becomes pregnant again.
“This is all really shocking to me,” Kardashian added in her confession early last year.
“All I’m trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my family and I just seem to run into more and more obstacles.
“It’s really hard for me to digest.”
Nor her reaction to Thompson getting Nichols pregnant?
“I repeat every event, every grand gesture, every journey [and] any date. It was all a lie.” Khloe admitted during a June episode from her Hulu family show.
“How did you manage not to say something? I just don’t feel in my own body. … Everything is an act of betrayal. Everything is a lie.
“It’s all manipulation [and] this is a scam. Did Tristan have every opportunity to tell me? yes Would Tristan tell me if there was no baby involved? Absolutely not.
“And that says a lot about his character. The whole thing is disgusting.”
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 birth of your second child!!!!!!
