Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are expecting their second child together, E! News has confirmed. Get all the details on True Thompson’s soon-to-be sibling below.
Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian are formally growing their family.
Multiple sources have confirmed to E! News that The Kardashians star, 38, and Chicago Bulls player, 31, are expecting their second child via surrogate. True Thompson, the couple’s 4-year-old daughter, is already their child.
“We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November,” a rep for Khloe told E! News. “Khloe 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.”
However, this doesn’t mean the duo is back together, a source close to the Good American mogul told E!. In fact, six months after Tristan’s paternity scandal, “they have not spoken outside of co-parenting matters,” the insider added. “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.” (The NBA star welcomed Theo with Maralee Nichols last year. He is also dad to Prince, 5, with ex Jordan Craig.)
Khloe has been open about her wish to give True a sibling ever after they welcomed their baby in 2018 in interviews. In fact, Khloe was seen considering growing their family on a 2020 episode of Keeping With the Kardashians after Tristan proposed they try for a second child despite their separation at the time. “I might get some embryos and get a sibling,” she told Tristan, adding, “I might need to borrow some sperm or get some from you, but we’ll figure that out later.”
Khloe and Tristan have remained close friends and co-parents despite having had their share of ups and downs over the years, with Khloe continuing to be committed to maintaining the peace for the benefit of True.
As a matter of fact, in a 2020 appearance, Khloe explained how she and Tristan were able to master the art of co-parenting on E! News Daily Pop.
“We’re doing a great job and I’m really grateful that we’re able to,” she shared at the time. “I come from a family that… just because people aren’t together doesn’t mean you have to be rude or they’re out of your life.”
She continued, “You know, when you can’t rely on so many other people’s help, it’s so great that you have like, essentially he’s your partner, he’s True’s dad. And I need his help more now.”
Fast-forward to the following year, when a source told E! about the pair’s plans to welcome another baby together. “Khloe knows the value of siblings and growing up in a house full of kids and she wants that for True,” the insider told E! News in 2021. “It’s something they have been working on for a while.”
