PEOPLE has learned that Khloé Kardashian is expecting her second child, which will make her a mother of two.
A spokeswoman for Khloé Kardashian told People that the 38-year-old reality star and the 31-year-old basketball player Tristan Thompson are expecting another child together via surrogate.
According to the representative who spoke to PEOPLE, “We can confirm True will have a sister who was conceived in November.”
“Khloé feels an immense sense of gratitude toward the remarkable surrogate for providing her with such a wonderful blessing.
We would appreciate it if you could be understanding and private with Khloe so that she may concentrate on her family.
According to a source who talked to PEOPLE, “Khloe and Tristan are not back together and have not communicated since December outside of co-parenting concerns.” This is despite the fact that the couple is reportedly expecting another child for their daughter True, who is already 4 years old.
In addition, the source reveals the following information: “The kid was created via surrogate prior to it being known to Khloe and the public in December that Tristan was expecting a baby with someone else.”
After learning that the NBA player had fathered another kid with Maralee Nichols, Khloé and Thompson decided to formally stop their love engagement in the month of January. Their second child, who was born on December 1, was named True.
During the time that Khloé was carrying the child, he was still involved in a romantic connection with her. Since 2016, the two have been involved in an on-again, off-again relationship, and in 2018, they became parents to their daughter True. Prince, who is currently 5 years old, is Thompson’s kid from a previous relationship with Jordan Craig.
Following Khloé’s candid discussion of the challenges she faced in achieving pregnancy, the new member of the family has been revealed.
Khloé revealed this information on the first episode of the final season of KUWTK, which aired in March 2021. She said that the doctors had warned her that she would have a “high-risk” pregnancy if she opted to have her own second kid. She shared her thoughts about the possibility of using a surrogate with her sister Kim Kardashian at the time.
“She said in the show, “I’m not going to get into specifics on camera, but they say it’s like an 80-something percent probability that I will miscarry. At the beginning with True, there was a close call with a miscarriage. But I was unaware that it was something that would stay with me.”
Khloé continued her confession by saying, “This whole thing has taken me completely by surprise.” “The only thing I’m attempting to do is bring more love into my life and into my family, but it seems like I am coming into more and more barriers along the way. It’s a lot for me to take in at the moment.”
During the scene, Kim, who already has four children, two of which were born to her via surrogate, stated, “I can honestly say that I had the best experience possible with surrogacy.” “And I believe that you are aware of how it feels to give birth; I always tell people that if they are able to go through with it, it is an incredible experience. However, you will notice that the love that you feel for your future children is not going to change at all. There is no change, with the exception of the fact that somebody else served as the carrier.”
