Khloé Kardashian is “not” back together with Tristan Thompson despite the second child The Kardashians star is welcoming with the NBA player. Fans were shocked to learn that Khloé and Tristan are expecting a second baby together. It turns out the pair had a successful surrogacy pregnancy and will be welcoming a new baby in the coming days. But the baby’s arrival comes amid their breakup over Tristan’s paternity scandal.
Khloé and Tristan have been separated after word got out on his paternity suit with Maralee Nichols. When news of the suit hit the press, Khloé learned along with the rest of the world that Tristan had cheated on her again. Around the time Tristan’s son with Maralee was conceived, he was reconciled with Khloé after his 2019 kissing scandal with Jordyn Woods. The paternity scandal appeared to be the final nail in the coffin of Khloé and Tristan’s relationship, though the pair have continued co-parenting their daughter True Thompson.
It’s good that Khloé and Tristan can co-parent amicably, because they’ll be doing a lot more of it together. Amid the baby news, sources confirmed that Khloé is “grateful” for the surrogate who gave her a “beautiful blessing,” People reports. But just because Khloé and Tristan have another baby on the way doesn’t mean they’re back together. “Khloé and Tristan are not back together and have not spoken since December outside of co-parenting matters,” the source said. The new baby had already been conceived via surrogate prior to Khloé learning that Tristan was “having a baby with someone else in December,” the source said.
Khloé and Tristan called it quits in January after he owned up to fathering a child with another woman. Maralee has accused Tristan of having no contact with their son Theo and providing no financial support. However, Tristan shares his fatherhood moments with True and his eldest son Prince on social media. Now that Tristan has a fourth child on the way, his hands will be full caring for his kids with three different women. The source says Khloé is happy that “True will have a sibling.” But, technically, True already has two siblings, including one little brother whom she hasn’t even met.
The drama is certainly enough to secure a second and third season of The Kardashians on Hulu. Season 1 ended with Khloé responding to the paternity scandal. She ripped Tristan apart, along with her sister Kim Kardashian. The family remains cordial with Tristan for the sake of his co-parenting with Khloé. But he clearly hasn’t shown that he can be loyal to Khloé as a spouse. Maybe they’re better as co-parents. Fans are just hoping Khloé doesn’t take him back.
