The Announcement Confirming The Birth Of Khloé Kardashian's Second Baby Is Very Telling

Khloé Kardashian has welcomed a baby boy with her ex, NBA star Tristan Thompson, per People. The pair's new bundle of joy comes only a few weeks after E! News confirmed they were expecting a second child together via surrogate. "Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing," a source told the outlet. "We'd like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family." Kardashian and Thompson welcomed their first child, daughter True, back in April 2018.

Per Us Weekly, the pair broke up in June 2021, but remained cordial and friendly for the sake of their daughter. Things, however, took a turn for the worse when a woman named Maralee Nichols revealed Thompson was the father of her newborn baby. Going by the timeline of their relationship, this automatically indicated that Thompson cheated on the reality star while they were still together. And even though the betrayal took a heavy toll on her, a source told Page Six in July that Kardashian still loves him. "I'm told that Khloé still loves Tristan, she is fixed on redeeming him, and nothing would shock me if they got back together again," a source revealed to the outlet.

However, with the baby's arrival, Kardashian is seemingly refuting these claims and making one thing very clear.

Khloé Kardashian appears to be distancing herself from Tristan Thompson

Khloé Kardashian is letting us know in the most subtle way ever that, even though there is a new baby between them, she is maintaining her distance from Tristan Thompson. Announcing the birth to Us Weekly, a rep for the reality star seemingly avoided any mention of Thompson and his reaction to the new baby. "Both baby and mother are very happy and healthy. Khloé is so thrilled to expand her family," the source told the outlet. Kardashian's decision to keep Thompson's name out of her mouth should, however, come as no surprise.

In July, a source close to the reality star confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that, outside of their co-parenting duties, Kardashian had not spoken to the NBA star since news of him fathering Maralee Nichols' son broke. While a name has yet to be revealed, ET has since confirmed that the reality star will "have the baby full time," but raise him with Thompson.

The baby's arrival comes amid rumors that she is dating a private equity banker whom, according to Page Six, she met through older sister, Kim. A new man and a new baby? Kardashian apparently has all she needs to move on from all of the drama that comes with Thompson.
