Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s second child came for a surrogate
Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson welcomed their second child together through their agent, People report. A representative for Kardashian confirmed the birth of the baby, saying the baby was a boy, but the former couple has yet to identify the name. They now share a 4-year-old daughter, True Thompson. News of the baby broke last month.
“We can confirm True will have a brother conceived in November,” a representative said at the time. “Khloé is extremely grateful to the extraordinary agent for such a wonderful well-wishes. We would like to ask for kindness and privacy so Khloe can focus on her family.”
In the first episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians‘The final season, Kardashian said she was told by her doctor that if she got pregnant again it would be “high risk” for her.
“I won’t go into specifics on camera,” she said. “But they said the chance of me having a miscarriage was 80%. I nearly miscarried with True in the first place. But I didn’t know that was like a stretch.”
She added, “All of this was really shocking to me. All I’m trying to do is bring more love into my life and into my family, and I seem to be hitting more and more roadblocks. It’s really hard for me to digest.”
Kardashian and Thompson each had a tumultuous relationship, breaking up and getting back together a few times. Late last year, it was revealed that Thompson had a child’s father with Maralee Nichols when he and Kardashian were still together, something Kardashian discovered when Nichols sued Thompson for child support. He publicly apologized to Kardashian for his violation. Their second baby was already pregnant through a surrogate when the news broke.
