Khloé Kardashian is “on cloud nine” after the birth of her and Tristan’s son via surrogate. The Kardashians star hasn’t named baby number 2 yet.
The Kardashians star Khloé Kardashian is overjoyed by the arrival of her and Tristan Thompson’s baby boy, though she hasn’t picked a name yet. Khloé and Tristan welcomed a son on Friday. The baby boy was born via a surrogate. The former on-again/off-again couple also share 4-year-old daughter True Thompson.
The news of the Good American founder expecting a second child with her ex came as a shock to many Kardashian fans. It turned out their son was conceived a month before the reveal Tristan fathered a child with trainer Maralee Nichols. The paternity scandal, Khloé’s reaction, and its dramatic fallout was covered on the family’s Hulu show. After that humiliating ordeal, the two apparently would only communicate about co-parenting, and it was even reported that Khloé didn’t care if Tristan missed the birth of their son. Now that the baby boy has arrived, it appears all the drama has taken a backseat.

On Sunday, a representative for Khloé told People the 38-year-old is “on cloud nine” after her baby boy’s arrival. “Getting a sibling for True has been such a journey,” the anonymous insider said, adding, “She is very excited to be a mom again.” The source also emphasized how much the reality star wanted a baby boy. When Tristan’s paternity scandal was revealed on the Hulu series, Kim Kardashian remarked how sad it was considering her younger sister wanted a brother for True so badly. While she’s over the moon about her new bundle of joy, Khloé, who broke up with her investor BF weeks ago, is in no rush to giver him a name. “Khloé hasn’t shared a name yet,” her rep revealed. “She is taking her time with the name. She wants it to be just right.” The source notably did not mention Tristan.
By waiting to share a name, the former Revenge Body host is likely trying to avoid the same mistake as younger sister Kylie Jenner. The makeup mogul initially named her second child, also a baby boy, Wolf. Soon afterwards, she posted an Instagram story announcing the name would be changed.
Almost six months later, the Kylie Baby founder still hasn’t revealed her son’s new name. Fans are wondering if Kylie will reveal the name in The Kardashians season 2. At this time, it’s also unclear how much of Khloé’s journey to baby number 2’s arrival will be shown. In the teaser trailer, she revealed hopes to still find love after the previous season ended with Tristan’s betrayal. However, fans are also unconvinced she and the basketball star are really done for good.
