Inside Khloé Kardashian's Huge Baby News With Tristan Thompson

In a development that falls under the category of "We Sure Didn't See This Coming," sources confirm that Khloé Kardashian is expecting a baby via surrogate with her ex, Tristan Thompson. A spokesperson for Kardashian confirmed the news to several outlets, including Us Weekly. The confirmation read, in part: "Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We'd like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family." The new arrival was conceived in November, meaning the surrogate should be giving birth sometime in August. 

Kardashian and Thompson are already parents to daughter True, but the joy of the news is somewhat tempered by the fact that the couple are no longer together. More awkward still, Thompson confessed to cheating on the reality star with fitness trainer Maralee Nichols at the time of the conception — and fathering a baby with her (via The U.S. Sun). "Khloé, you don't deserve this," he wrote in an Instagram post. "You don't deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you."

Unfortunately, Thompson's apology turned out to be as bogus as his fidelity. Just months later, he and Kardashian broke up following claims from a model that she had gotten cozy with him as well, per Page Six. He was also seen at a party going into a known "hookup room" with three other women. Many people believed the two had gone their separate ways following these issues, but this latest announcement has people wondering where they really stand.

Are two-time parents Khloé and Tristan back together?

History is repeating itself yet again in the case of Khloé Kardashian's baby news. Khloé went through one of the hardest moments in her life in early 2022 when she learned of Tristan Thompson's latest infidelity during a taping of "The Kardashians." This followed the heartbreak four years earlier, when he was found to be cheating while she was pregnant with their daughter True (via Insider). 

However, Kardashian is focusing on becoming a mother for the second time. A source told ET Online, "The two have long said they wanted True to have a sibling, and Khloé even told her family she'd do it without Tristan if she needed to." The surrogacy situation was a medical decision: Kardashian was told by her doctor (via Us Weekly) that she was at high risk for a miscarriage if she tried to conceive naturally again. Page Six has also reported that the pair will be welcoming a baby boy, as "Khloé has always wanted a little brother for True."

Many fans are wondering if this means Kardashian and Thompson are back together, though. The ET source says no: "The two aren't together and Khloé will have the baby full time, but Khloé wants Tristan in both the kids' lives as much as he wants to be." The two have already been amicable for the family's sake. On Father's Day 2022, they not only watched True's dance recital together, they also joined the rest of the extended Kardashian clan for lunch afterward, as confirmed by TMZ
