“The Kardashians” on Hulu kicked off with an insane, heartbreaking and gut-wrenching start.
The episode starts with Khloe telling producers about baby number two.
Khloe Addresses Surrogacy Journey & Paternity Scandal
“There is something I do need to talk to you about,” the Good American co-founder said.
She admitted she wasn’t ready to talk about her second child when she got the call from Kim Kardashian about Tristan’s paternity scandal.
What wasn’t shown on season one was Khloe harshly telling Kim she needed to talk off camera.
She told Kim about embryo transfer the day Kim informed her about TT’s paternity scandal.
Kim Was The First One To Find Out About Baby #2
“It’s a different experience… I think…. Time is ticking and I keep burying my head in the sand, but that doesn’t do anything, so this is where we are,” she said with a sigh.
Khloe joked that her mom, Kris Jenner, suggested they not announce the birth of her son, because nobody would notice given how many grandkids there currently are.
During a confessional, Khloe confirmed the embryo transfer took place days before Thanksgiving 2021, and she found out about Tristan’s child with Maralee Nichols the first week of December.
She didn’t want anyone to think she did the embryo transfer AFTER paternity scandal broke.
Khloe Confirms Baby Was Conceived BEFORE She Knew About Maralee
“I wouldn’t want anyone to think I did this after the fact,” Khloe said during a confessional. “I’m not that much of a sociopath. I’m a lunatic, but not that f**king deranged.”
Khloe was very honest about not being okay with the news of Tristan expecting another child with someone else while simultaneously encouraging her to go through with the embryo transplant in a surrogate.
Tristan found out he was expecting his third child, a son, with Nichols on July 2nd, yet continued to push Khloe to expand their family.
“I just didn’t like that fact that Tristan knew that this was happening,” Kylie said.
Kendall agreed adding, “You [Tristan] were encouraging Khloe to go forward with this while you knew that that was also happening. It was almost like he wanted to trap her.”

“He wanted to hang on to her for sure,” the momager extraordinaire added.
Khloe revealed why she kept the baby news out of the public for so long.
“I can’t hear about this for months about what an idiot I am, like what a dumb f**k I am,” she said through tears.
News of Khloe and Tristan’s second baby broke on July 14th.
A rep for the former couple confirmed the news in a statement.
“We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived 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 Khloe can focus on her family.”
Despite welcoming a second child together, Khloe and Tristan are NOT together.
The statement continued, “Khloe and Tristan are not back together and have not spoken since December outside of co-parenting matters. 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.”
On July 28th, Khloe’s surrogate had to go into labor early.
Kim documented the birth of Khloe’s baby boy and gave him his first kiss.
Khloe did allow Tristan to come visit and meet their son in the hospital.
