Khloe had her first child, True, back in 2018 when she and Tristan were still in a relationship. The two have since broken up following multiple infidelity scandals by the NBA star, the most recent one taking place after they had agreed on having their second child together and working on their relationship.

"Ever since December, it's been this dark cloud looming over me. Every single day, I've been feeling depressed and sad, and now that my son is here, I get to move on and I get to enjoy. It's almost like I get to close that chapter and be done with this trauma and put it behind me," she says in the confessional, as a video montage of her and Kim holding the baby flashes across the screen.

"Now I finally get to start the healing process. Now I get to start enjoying my life with two kids in it and figuring this out," she adds. "This is gonna be day one, and this is gonna be the start of something positive and happy and beautiful."

People magazine reports that although present, Tristan was not allowed to come into the delivery room. However, as per Kim’s suggestion, Khloe allowed Tristan into the hospital to meet his son, regardless of the drama they have going on.

"I've been on the fence about letting Tristan come to the hospital or not, but Tristan wants to be here so I just figured why not let him come? I'll never get this moment back," Khloe says in a confessional.
