After playing coy with her little boy’s name, Khloé Kardashian finally consented to reveal the name in the latest episode of “The Kardashians”, and we can confirm. It definitely starts with a T and seems to have a connection with “Magic Mike”. Have you guessed it yet?
While Khloé has strongly denied any revival of romance with Tristan Thompson, fans feel that naming the baby with a T sends out different signals. Here’s all the goss!
Khloé Kardashian Reveals Name Of Baby Boy “T”
Just last month, Khloé was on “The Jennifer Hudson Show” and while she did not give out a name, she did confirm that much like True, her daughter, her son’s name also started with T, as a nod to her baby daddy and ex, Tristan Thompson.
When Hudson asked her about her baby’s name, Khloé played her cards close to her chest, saying, “Yes, he’s named. But I haven’t announced it yet.”
She explained a little more, saying, “He was delivered via surrogate or the stork I like to say, and at first, I did not know what I was going to name him. I wanted to meet him and feel him out a little bit, and so at first, he didn’t have a name.”
She did confirm that his name started with a T and that she was waiting for the season 3 premiere of their reality show to drop the name to avid fans. At the time, she also admitted that if her daughter leaked out the name, she would be “screwed.”
The name is Tatum, but not Channing, although fans feel she’s taking the whole ode to the baby daddy way too far, especially since he cheated on her. One Instagram user who felt rather strongly about the signals the name was sending, wrote, “The saddest part is when her children grow up and realize how their dad treated their mom and how she was ok with it. Especially her son.”
Meanwhile, here’s Khloé, “holding down the fort”, or so says elder Sis Kim!

James Corden Heard It First, At Kendall Jenner’s Event
In the first episode of “The Kardashians” on Hulu, Khloé met James Corden at her sister Kendall Jenner‘s 818 Tequila event. Corden asked the 38-year-old what was new with her, and she promptly shared the baby’s name, Tatum, adding, “Naming a human is really hard.”
Khloé also reveals, on the show, that because Tatum was born via surrogate, nearly a year ago, she feels less connected to him than her daughter, True, who she carried herself, adding, “It’s a mind f–k. It’s really the weirdest thing.”
Tatum was conceived in November 2021, just days before Khloé got to know that Tristan, who had cheated on her again, had gotten Maralee Nichols pregnant. Their son Theo was born soon after in December 2021, and the basketball player is also dad to Prince, 6, with ex Jordan Craig. Meanwhile, Khloé also shares 5-year-old daughter True with him.
Many fans think Khloé might take Tristan back, something she admitted he has hope for in an April teaser for the show, as she said, “I think he thinks, ‘Let’s just ride this out,’ but no. No chances.”
The arrival of baby Tatum certainly did not reconcile the two, but naming him with the initial “T” has gotten tongues wagging, again! Meanwhile, we do know that Tatum’s nickname is Tate, as Khloé’s bestie Malika Haqq let it slide in a comment, saying, “Go Tate!” Plus, according to Kim Kardashian, Tatum looks “just like” their brother Rob Kardashian.
Fans Say Khloé Kardashian Dissed Herself!
Fans feel that this taking things too far given that Tristan Thompson has proved to be a cheater, time and time again.
One wrote, “Tristan cheated on Khloe while pregnant with True, yet she added the “T” initial like her dad.. then while having 2nd baby, Tristan cheated on Khloe and she named the baby “Tatum” so both kids can match their dad’s initials? I remember Khloe back hated men so much, she was the relationship therapist in the family, how she encouraged Kourtney and Kim to leave their cheating partners… look at her now giving her babies initials like their daddy knowing he cheated on both pregnancies lmao”
Here’s a cheekier one!
“She really should have named him “Trust” because then she would have at least True and Trust in at least one kind of relationship,” another user commented.
All we can say is congratulations on your name, baby Tatum!
