Hold the phone! In a major surprise to everyone but Khloe Kardashian’s surrogate, the star announced that baby #2 with ex Tristan Thompson is on the way. The pair made their pregnancy announcement this week. They told E! News that their second baby – a sibling for daughter True – will be born via surrogacy.
Are Khloe and Tristan back together?
While the pair have had a notoriously on-again-off-again relationship, it looks like it’s off for good. They have weathered multiple cheating episodes before, but Khloe and Tristan are currently not together. E! reported that “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.” A source told them that “Khloe and Tristan are not back together and have not spoken since December outside of co-parenting matters.”
Tristan is also dad to five year old Prince, with ex Jordan Craig, and to baby Theo, who was born to Maralee Nichols in 2021. The revelation of Maralee’s pregnancy rocked his relationship with Khloe, perhaps for good.
Khloe’s Surrogate Pregnancy
Kardashians are no strangers to surrogacy, with sister Kim using a surrogate for her two youngest children. But Khloe Kardashian’s surrogate will be her first. She carried 4 year old True herself in 2018, before episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians showed her considering surrogacy as an option for future children.
A sibling for True
Regardless of her relationship status, Khloe has never hidden her desire to expand her brood. She told her reality show that “in my head, when I was going to have kids, I never ever imagined having an only child.” And now that dream is set to come true, with baby #2 expected to arrive any day now. One thing’s for sure – with a troop of Kardashian-Jenner cousins and the one and only Kris Jenner onside, this baby won’t be short on love or company.
