On Wednesday evening, TMZ first broke the news that the former lovers are expecting a child very soon via surrogate and the news took the world by storm.
As you may know, Khloé gave fans the impression that she was done and dusted with her baby daddy after it was revealed last December that he fathered another child with an Instagram model named Maralee Nichols.
However, it seems she was fully done with the professional basketball player.
Khloé Kardashian Breaks Silence On Having Kid With Tristan Thompson
A representative for Khloé has now confirmed that the former couple is welcoming a child together. The rep revealed to notskinnybutnotfat on Instagram, “We can confirm True will be having a sibling who was confirmed in November. Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family.
As for the state of Khloé and Tristan’s relationship, and if they are getting back together, the representative says a big NO!
“Khloé and Tristan are not back together and have not spoken since December outside co-parenting matters, “read the statement.
Answering the questions about the timeline of the pregnancy and if it happened after the Chicago Bulls player cheated with Nichols, the reps said, “the baby was conceived via surrogate before it was revealed to Khloé and the public that Tristan was having a baby with someone else in December.”
Per TMZ, Khloé and Tristan’s child might be on the way in the coming days or could have already been born. During season one of the family’s Hulu show, “The Kardashians,” the former couple, who already share a 4-year-old daughter, True, were discussing plans to expand their family.
The pair were going to couple’s therapy, with momager Kris Jenner and the Canadian native having a discussion about the prospect of even making things official with Khloé and walking down the aisle.
However, all that came to a disgraceful end when Khloé and the rest of the family stumbled upon the news of Tristan fathering a child just like the rest of the world.
Fans React To Khloé And Tristan Having Another Kid
The internet has gone wild over the news of Khloé and Tristan welcoming baby No 2 and fans have mixed reactions to the news.
For many, they are disappointed in the Good American co-founder for choosing to procreate with her ex-boyfriend who humiliated her publicly several times.
Many have even pegged it to the 38-year-old having no self-esteem.
One fan wrote, “Khloe Kardashian suffers from self esteem issues and it’s deep-rooted. Not her having another baby via surrogate with community dick Tristan Thompson. What message is she sending to True? Girl love yourself!”
Khloe Kardashian might as well marry Tristian Thompson and have an open marriage because she obviously doesn’t care that he’s a cheater…Like girl…. Stand up,” read another comment.
“For Khloe Kardashian to have another child with Tristan Thompson I think she genuinely has to have a deep h8red for herself to do that…..to have another child with a man who has publicly humiliated u and cheated on you. I don’t think she’ll ever break the cycle,” this angry fan wrote.
Was Tristan Just a Sperm Donor To The Kardashians?
Others have, however, come to Khloé’s defense, saying that the child was obviously conceived before the whole cheating saga.
One user wrote, “Sounds like their [surrogate] may have been preg already b4 Khloe found out about him cheating,” one user speculated. “Therefore, he lied to her face while using a surrogate at the same time he knew the other girl was preg & trying to sue him. Same time they were doing good & he was moving in. Poor Khloe.”
The fan continued, “They talked about using a surrogate in the past, so maybe they froze embryos? If [anyone] ever struggled [with] getting pregnant here, [you] know embryos are like gold. If she wanted another baby, maybe she just used them so [it’s] Trues full sister & [he’s] basically just a sperm donor.”
This fan suggested Khloé made the right move by having a second baby with Tristan, the father of her first child.
“Oh common, you guys are making it look like she’s doing the wrong thing,” the fan remarked. “True needs a sibling and if the sibling comes from the same man it’s good and preferable instead of having 2 baby daddies. Stop bullying @khloekardashian she’s been through so much.”
