The reality star and NBA player are already parents to a daughter named True, who is 4.
On July 13, reports first surfaced that the two were expecting a second child through a surrogate, despite no longer being together. A representative for the Kardashians later confirmed the news in a statement.
“We can confirm that True will have a sibling conceived in November. Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing,” the rep told People magazine. “We want to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloe can focus on her family.”
An anonymous source told the outlet that Kardashian and Thompson “have not spoken outside of co-parenting matters since December” and clarified the timeline surrounding the baby’s conception.
“The baby was conceived via surrogate before it was revealed to Khloe and the public that Tristan had a baby with someone else in December,” the source added.
The Good American founder and the athlete split after news broke that Thompson was expecting a child with Maralee Nichols, who gave birth to a son in December. Kardashian and Thompson had reconciled again after the athlete’s numerous infidelities when he fathered the child with Nichols.
Thompson also has a 5-year-old son named Prince with Jordan Craig, his ex-girlfriend prior to Kardashian.
