If you know anything about Tristan Thompson and his messy and monogamy-void relationship with Khloé Kardashian, then you might have just though that Tristan recently took a trip to Italy and knocked up a local woman named “Via Surrogate.” But nope, this baby was planned, apparently, and planned between Tristan and Khloé. So it would appear as though Khloé might not be as done with the one-man sperm bank as she has previously claimed she was.
38-year-old Khloé and 31-year-old Tristan share a 4-year-old daughter named True, who was born back in April 2018. There were rumors for YEARS that Khloé was fixing to make a second baby with Tristan, regardless of the fact that his loyalty to her is about as strong as Khloé’s resolve to stick with just one face. But well, they really went ahead and made a second baby together. Except for this time, they’ve contracted the birth out to a surrogate, who is about to pop very soon. via People magazine:
The Kardashians star, 38, and Tristan Thompson, 31, are expecting another child together via surrogate, a representative for Khloé tells PEOPLE
“We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,” the rep tells PEOPLE. “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.”
“PRIVACY?!” screamed Kris Jenner in disgust, as she commanded The Kardashians’ camera crew to hold the line until she gives them the go-ahead to start filming Khloé’s first filter-smoothed talking head segment about how “complicated” the situation is. Oh, and it is bound to be complicated, at least by my shady calculations. In March 2021, Khloé revealed that she and Tristan had made embryos together, so clearly there was the intention of making a second kid. According to Khloé’s spokesperson, the baby was conceived in November 2021 (that puts the due date somewhere roughly in August, next month). Okay here’s where it gets dicey. In December 2021, it was revealed that a personal trainer from Texas named Maralee Nichols was suing Tristan for child support for her then-unborn baby. The baby was reportedly made in March, on Tristan’s birthday. That birthday was also marked by Khloé throwing Tristan a huge birthday party, because Tristan and Khloé were reportedly back together at that time (Tristan has since admitted to two-timing Khloé with Maralee).
After Maralee’s baby was born in December, Tristan demanded a paternity test, and to quote Maury, Tristan was the father. Tristan released a statement apologizing to Khloé, saying that she didn’t deserve the “heartache and humiliation” he’s put on her over the years. So yeah, it sounds like maybe that surrogate baby and Tristan’s surprise sidepiece baby weren’t supposed to happen in such a short amount of time. And according to a source that spoke with People, I might be correct, because that source claims the timing definitely wasn’t planned:
“Khloe and Tristan are not back together and have not spoken since December outside of co-parenting matters.” The source also adds: “The baby was conceived via surrogate before it was revealed to Khloe and the public that Tristan was having a baby with someone else in December.”
Of course, it might not be as dramatic as it all appears to be. Just a few days ago, Khloé revealed in an Instagram Story that Tristan had sent her flowers for her 38th birthday. Then again, that does feel like the kind of low-effort gesture of a man who keeps getting caught with surprise babies. This will be Tristan’s fourth child. He shares 4-year-old True with Khloé, a 5-year-old son named Prince with ex Jordan Craig, and 7-month-old baby Theo with Maralee. This will be Khloé’s second child, or third if you want to count how Tristan continues to behave.
It’s not known exactly when Khloé and Tristan’s latest baby will be born, or whether it’s a boy or a girl (although speculation points to it being a boy). But one thing is for sure, and that’s that Khloé will have her hands full when it comes to filling out the birth certificate forms. Khloé will grab one for the baby, then ask for a second for Tristan, before asking: “How easy is it to change a grown man’s name to the clown emoji?”
