Why Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Kept Baby #2 A Secret For Months

Khloe Kardashian is ready to give True Thompson a little brother, but she wasn’t quite ready to share that with the world.

On July 13, news broke that Khloe and her ex Tristan Thompson are expecting a second child via surrogate, after welcoming daughter True in 2018. (He also shares son Theo7 months, with Maralee Nichols and son Prince5, with Jordan Craig).

Khloe’s rep confirmed that their child was conceived in November, adding, “Khloe is incredibly grateful to the amazing surrogate for such a beautiful blessing. We would like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on his family.”

However, a source now tells E! News that Khloe was trying to keep news of her growing family a secret. Why?

“Khloe kept the pregnancy a secret to protect the surrogate’s privacy and safety,” the insider exclusively told E! News, “and to protect his sanity from public judgment following Tristan’s actions.”

A History of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s Relationship

Last year, Maralee filed a paternity lawsuit against Tristan, claiming he is the father of her son. In August, three months before conceiving his child with Khloe, Tristan filed a response in court and admitted to having sex with her in March 2021 in Houston, Texas, on her birthday.

However, it wasn’t until December that Khloe learned of the lawsuit when news broke to the world. “A courtesy would be not to. But okay, if you do, you’re not even going to tell me before the rest of the world?” she said at the time, as captured on The Kardashians. “It’s just another slap in the face. It’s humiliating. I’m embarrassed.”

In the wake of the drama, Khloe tried to keep news of her second baby to herself, but the source told E! that a leaked story ultimately put her in a tough spot: “Khloe’s hand was forced to confirm the pregnancy before she was ready to announce it.”

Turns out baby #2 had been then top secret that she hadn’t even told everyone around her. As the source explains, Khloe and her rep eventually released a statement “before they even had a chance to personally speak to her family and closest friends,” who learned the news online. alongside his fans.

Tristan has not spoken publicly about the pregnancy and E! News has reached out to his attorney for comment.

In January, he apologized to Khloe after a paternity test confirmed he was Theo’s father.

“Khloe, you don’t deserve this,” he wrote on social media at the time. “You don’t deserve the heartbreak and humiliation I’ve caused you. You don’t deserve the way I’ve treated you over the years. My actions certainly don’t match the way I see you.”
