Khloe Kardashian has opened up about having a second baby with Tristan Thompson as he's expecting a baby with another woman.
Khloe and Tristan's second child, a son, was born in July this year, via surrogate.
In the emotional season premiere of The Kardashians, Khloe (38) appeared nervous as she sat down for her confessional.
The Good American founder said she didn't know that Tristan was expecting a child with another woman as they were trying for their second child, and only learned about it last December.
“It’s so close I wouldn’t want anyone to think I did this after the news came out; I mean why would I have a baby with someone who’s having a baby with someone else?” she says.
Khloe says she's been deeply depressed since she got the shocking news, especially as their surrogate pregnancy had been successful.
She'd hoped to keep the news private to avoid being bullied.
Her family showered her with support while sharing their disappointment in Tristan.
“He knew he had another baby on the way, this is unforgivable in my book,” sister Kylie says.
Kim and her mom, Kris, said they were feeling horrible that Khloe was heartbroken at a time when she ought to be happy.
“I just feel like the joy was sucked out of it and it’s hard to watch her in pain,” Kris says.
Khloe welcomed her son on 28 July this year, and the emotional moment was captured by Kim at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Older sister Kim filmed Khloe going to the hospital and witnessing her child's birth.
Khloe told Kim that she was, "not ready" to have another child, especially with all that’s going on," and Kim reassured her, saying, "You're never ready, but you're ready."
Khloe was skeptical about allowing Tristan to come and see their newborn baby, but she heeded Kim’s advice and allowed him to share the special moment with their child.
Because of Covid-19 protocols the other Kardashians couldn't be at the birth or at the hospital, so she introduced them to her son on a video call.
"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 says.
She hasn't yet revealed her son's name, but says it will start with the letter T, to match his older sister, True.
