Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are expecting another child through a surrogate mother. The news comes as a surprise to the family’s millions of fans, to say the least. Kardashian and Thompson have been separated for several months and the basketball player is anything but loved by the consequences of Keeps up with the Kardashians† Thompson has the biggest trouble staying true to the reality star.
There are not one or two stories about Thompson’s affairs. The basketball player was caught cheating with dozens of women while in a relationship with Kardashian. The romance will hopefully start in 2016. Where it looks set to flourish further as the couple in December 2017 confirm they are expecting a first child together, things break down before the birth of daughter True.
Kardashian is about seven months pregnant as the first stories of Thompson’s excesses begin to circulate. US Weekly then writes about a flirtatious Thompson who has been much more intimate with two women than is appropriate for a person in a monogamous relationship. “Their body language and flirting were really not appropriate for someone who is in a serious relationship and expecting a baby,” said a source.
It’s really going wrong in the week that Kardashian has to give birth to their daughter. The reality star flies to Cleveland in early April to be with her partner when their baby is born. In the same week, pictures emerge of Thompson crossing the border with two women. TMZ has pictures from six months earlier showing the basketball player kissing one of the women and then placing his face between her breasts on the other. The same woman grabs him by the genitals.
It does not stop there: The same day, pictures also appear of Thompson taking a third woman to his hotel room. These pictures are newer: While Kardashian is flying to Cleveland, Thompson is sleeping in a hotel room with the woman, sources say. This has never been officially confirmed, but several witnesses say the two kissed at a nightclub.

The daughter True is born on April 12 and everything seems calm for a while. Thompson has repeatedly apologized. There are now five women who have confessed to having kissed the basketball player during his relationship with Kardashian. In May, various sources confirm that the couple has decided to continue the relationship, even though the reality star’s family would not be so happy about it.
Happiness does not last long, because while the two are busy with couples therapy, Thompson will again be caught flirting with another woman in September 2018. It does not stop at a pleasant conversation: he would also have touched the woman’s buttocks. That leads Kim Kardashian to stop following her younger sister’s partner on social media.
In the months that follow, a flashing light relationship develops: one moment everything seems to be going well, the next the relationship is over. In February 2019, the uncertainty ends as rumors arise about Thompson’s affair with Jordyn Woods. She’s the best friend of Kylie Jenner, Kardashian’s sister. Kardashian and Thompson’s relationship seems to be coming to an end. Woods is also rejected by the family. “You’re the reason my family is falling apart,” Kardashian said.
In order to fit the daughter True together, the former couple decides to continue being friendly with each other. Thompson therefore moves to the neighborhood where Kardashian lives, and they all celebrate the birthday of the then youngest Kardashian family. It again leads to a reconciliation.
In October 2020, the couple will try to get pregnant again, sources say. Four months later, there are rumors of an engagement. By June 2021, however, the relationship is already over. Two months later, they try again, but they do not come to a relationship because rumors of an affair reappear.
Thompson is revealed to have had a baby with Maralee Nichols, a fitness model. He rejects this at first, but the DNA test is clear: he is in fact Theo’s father. “Khloé, you do not deserve this. You do not deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused. You deserve better than the way I treated you,” Thompson wrote on Instagram when the test results were published.
All this will happen in December 2021. Exactly the same month, Kardashian and Thompson’s surrogate mother becomes pregnant. “Khloé is incredibly grateful for the surrogate mother,” a Kardashian spokesman said Thursday. Whether the arrival of another common child will also add a new chapter to the on-again, off-again relationship is still unknown.
