Multiple sources are reporting that Khloé Kardashian is about to welcome her second child — and that ex Tristan Thompson is the daddy.
According to TMZ, plans for a second child — whose birth is reported to be “imminent” — were set in motion in November, just before Thompson’s cheating scandal went public.
Kardashian and Thompson split in December after a paternity test proved Maralee Nichols’ claims that he was the father of her newborn baby.
“We can confirm True will have a sibling who was conceived in November. Khloé is incredibly grateful to the extraordinary surrogate for such a beautiful blessing,” a rep for Kardashian says in a statement issued to both People and Page Six. “We’d like to ask for kindness and privacy so that Khloé can focus on her family.”
Meanwhile, a source tells Page Six that Thompson and Kardashian have not reconciled, despite having a second child together; in fact, the source insists that outside of “co-parenting matters,” the two have not spoken since December.
“Khloé and Tristan already had the baby in the works when the scandal hit. By then, Khloé was just like, ‘I’m going to be doing it by myself,’” said the source, while another source said that Kardashian “has been openly talking to friends about having the baby since before Christmas.”
That was confirmed by a source who told People, “The baby was conceived via surrogate before it was revealed to Khloe and the public that Tristan was having a baby with someone else in December.”
