Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson will soon welcome their second child together. The Kardashians star and the NBA player 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 told the outlet.
The source added, “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.” A source tells People that despite the pair expecting a sibling for 4-year-old daughter True, “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.” Khloé and Thompson officially ended their romantic relationship in January after discovering the NBA player fathered another child, who was born on December 1, with Maralee Nichols.
At the time of the child’s conception, he was still in a relationship with Khloé. The couple had been in an on-again, off-again relationship since 2016 and welcomed daughter True in 2018. Thompson is also dad to son Prince with ex Jordan Craig. The new addition comes after Khloé opened up about her struggles with conceiving.
During the March 2021 premiere episode of KUWTK’s final season, Khloé shared that doctors informed her she would have a “high-risk” pregnancy if she chose to carry her own second child. She told her sister Kim Kardashian that she was considering surrogacy at the time. “I’m not gonna get into specifics on-camera,” she said in the episode.
The Kardashians star added, “but they said it’s like an 80-something per cent chance that I will miscarry. I almost miscarried with True at the beginning. But I didn’t know that was like a lingering thing.” She continues, “This is all really shocking to me,” Khloé added in her confessional. “All I’m trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my family, and I just seem to be running into more and more roadblocks. It’s really hard for me to digest.”
